Trying to escape the last of the Canberra winter we had a weekend away at the coast, staying for the first time in Kiama. The rooms and amenities were as expected for the Sebel but the friendliness, helpfulness and all round niceness of the staff - from the security/watchman to the reception staff to the bar and bistro staff, nothing...

The Sebel Harbourside Kiama is a wonderful place to stay for a winter getaway...Unfortunuately, it doesn't have a pool if you wanted to stay there in summer you would have to go elsewhere for a swim especially when you have children it could be a little difficult

Our room was nice and spacious. We didn't have a harbour view but the street was quiet and we were well shielded by beautiful Morton Bay Fig trees. Our bed had a very soft mattress which didn't do my back much good. It would be better if it had a firmer mattress. The hotel sits right by the Harbour. It... More

A nice enough hotel, but one of those places it's difficult to get worked up about either way. It ticks all the boxes, but there's nothing to get excited about - by the same token there's absolutely nothing wrong with it either. Location is pleasant, and the breakfast room has a lovely view. We were on the road-facing side which... More

There was no view from my balcony room. Yes there are rooms with views over Kiama harbor. But that's not what most of us get. The hotel was clean and the room was nice enough.
