« Well located »

The Good - lovely view and situation; charming and friendly staff; easy parking with lift access The Not So Good: our superior room had no opening windows and the air-conditioning was minimally efficient. It felt claustrophobic. The bed was very comfortable except for the top sheet which had a synthetic feel to it. The Ordinary: My wife asked to check out one hour later - it was my 70th birthday. She was told this privilege is for Accor members only. On checkout, I was asked to pay for items from the mini-bar. We didn't use it during our stay. I was surprised by this accounting error.

Overall really good. Just a couple of issues. Glasses and cups not cleaned in room.

Reception was hard to find, Fridge was hot, air conditioner didn’t work. Will not be returning.

« greant position »

all the staff were excellent. the room, however, was disappointing. i didn't realise i wouldn't be able to open a window or door to the outside. i felt somewhat caged. that's a personal thing though. also, the toilet flush kept getting stuck. the worst part of all, though, was a strange banging noise that happened a number of times both nights. i don't know if it was someone's door banging closed in the wind, or what, but very loud. overall, the location makes up for the downsides.

« Great location. »

Overall we had a great stay. Room clean, service was great. A few hiccups when we arrived back at the hotel on Saturday night around 10:30 pm, found that our key cards would not open the door to our room. Went down to reception and found no one at the desk. After some time, the receptionist turned up, and we explained our situation. She checked our cards and found that the person who booked us in only validated the cards for one night. We had dinner at the restaurant, and never again we were charged $26 for Seafood Plate two prawn two oyster two tiny pieces of stuffed squid, gazpacho and aioli drizzled with oil. Outrageous! If you want to save your reputation I suggest you take off the menu. Thank goodness we had bread and peanut butter back in our room, which is we had to supplement our dinner that night.

« Amenities could be improved »

We had a 2nd floor standard room with no balcony for 1 night. The lift button to summon the lift to our floor was broken so it was not possible to get the floor to come to the 2nd floor, but there was no sign to let us know. The fire door on the first floor was left propped open presumably because of the 2nd floor lift problem. Our room was a good size and comfortable with a nice view of the harbour but offered no privacy at all unless the blinds were completey closed ( blocking light and the view) as that wing faces restaurants opposite. The blinds need to be replaced with shutters or venetian type blinds to provide some privacy. The air conditioning did not work well so the room was hot, although it was a hot couple of days. Amenities need improvement.

Spent New Years Eve and enjoyed the fireworks although it was a pricey nights stay.

Attended Kiama for a business meeting and enjoyed a 1 night stay at the Sebel. Having stayed previously at the Sebel Kiama it was nice to return and be greeted as a loyal customer.

« Poor restaurant »

Worst restaurant in any Accor we have stayed at around the world. We ordered the Grillled Prawn salad ($24) for lunch. It comprised of 2 (small to medium size) prawns with a snowpea tendrils garnish and a small amount of totally flavourless cous cous. Like the people around us, our meal didn't arrive, the staff were friendly and helpful though, and sorted it out. The reception staff were great, and special thanks go to Cain, who went and got us new door keys when they stopped working. The room was large, clean and nice and even though we didn't request a room with ocean view, we still had one, which was appreciated. One suggestion, the lounge is uncomfortable. It was a bit noisy at times during the night, but not too bad for Australia Day. With a good restaurant, this review would be 5 star.

« Fabulous! »

My husband and I live in Dapto and wanted a short get away and what a marvelous surprise we got. Great location, lovely clean and spacious rooms (ours even had a bath!) The staff were amazing, all with fabulous customer service skills. We dined in house as the view was just too pretty to dismiss and the meal was outstanding. From 2 people who often stay in Sydney for a get away, we now know that we can come to the Sebel Kiama (less than a half hour away) and get just as good, if not better service and experience that we get in Sydney. One staff member comes to mind who was so helpful when we went to have dinner and a few drinks was a young lady, blonde hair and tattoos on one of her arms, i think her name was Mackenzie. She was one of your many lovely staff that we encountered. We will be back for sure - thanks so much for bringing fabulous to the South Coast!

« Great location »

we have stayed here several times - staff are great and professional without exception. I can't think of a better located spot. It is expensive for what it is. Example we recently stayed at the Hotel Intercontinental in Sydney CBD on a weekend and it was cheaper. There was a problem with the in-house movies both nights we stated & the staff gave us a free breakfast. On the Sunday night there was a problem with the swipe cards to get into the rooms and they had to be replaced.

« It was the perfect venue for our family reunion. »

We all enjoyed our family reunion very much. The staff were always helpful right from the time I made my first phone call to book 6 different types of rooms to accommodate 20 people (aged from 7 to 82 years) right through until we checked out. We especially enjoyed our meal together in the restaurant on the first night, chatting together in the bar area outside each night, breakfast together seated at 2 round tables each seating 10 people and overlooking the sea, being able to borrow beach towels and enjoy swimming close by. Even the weather was perfect ! Thank you all very much for making our stay such a memorable time for all the right reasons.

« Poor view. »

Room was comfortable and clean. I requested harbour view and learnt from your other quest that he requested to switch from the room we were in to a harbour room only the day before.My wife and I like to sit on balconys overlooking water whilst having a quiet drink. If requests arnt met on this the previous visit,then I gyess it could happen again therefore we wont be back.I didnt respobd to the 1st email because I dont like being a whinger, we simply find something else.

Dear Mr. C., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your recent experience at the Sebel Harbourside Kiama. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations and please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. I have had a look at your previous reservations and have seen you have booked both times a Deluxe Harbour View room. These room types unfortunately do not have a balcony. However, the room we had allocated you for your stay is a special Deluxe Harbour View room which in fact does have 2 balconies whereas the other rooms in this room type don't and because of your preference to have a balcony, we kindly allocated you the Deluxe Harbour View with the balconies so you could enjoy them. The room type that I think you would prefer is our Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony Rooms. These rooms are the rooms that are located on the front of the hotel with the balconies. I hope one day in the future you will give us the opportunity to restore you faith in us at the Sebel Harbourside Kiama and you can experience an enjoyable relaxing stay. If you do decide you would like to stay with us again, please contact me directly and I will personally look after your reservation and can assist you in picking a room type better catered to your preferences. You can contact me at h8… or on my direct number 02…. Kind Regards, Amber Bowmer Guest Services Manager
