This is an interesting hotel, with a lovely location, a great chef, friendly reception and free parking. So that's the positives. However as many other reviewers have noted the furnishing feel worn down and a lot need to be replaced. 4 star hotels do not have crappy metal chairs and stools in their restaurant and bar. 4 star hotels do...

Stayed here for 3 nights in early January. Location is good. Across from the bay but NOT near the beach. Room was ok but nothing special really. Bathroom good. Balcony not worth purchasing as it backs onto a residential side street. Breakfast is the worst we have had. They charge ridiculously high prices $35 per person. Definitely do not waste...

I would not class this a 4/5 star hotel, the first room we were allocated was shoddy with chipped cupboards, dusty skirting boards and dirty chair seats. The view was of the railway line and houses. We asked to be moved and was told they were fully booked but would try to move us, we were offered the 3rd floor...

This hotel is perfect for a short stay in Kiama . Everything is close by and parking free . The bar restaurant is lively in the evening but Kiama itself has limited places to eat and the hotel seems to be a magnet for the locals. Good rooms well appointed and friendly service.

Just got home from a stay here, was expecting a little more being that it's a Sebel! Still it was comfortable, clean and the staff were friendly. When I say more, a little more luxurious was what I expected. We had a balcony room which was comfortable and functional but, the balcony looked over the street which was a shame....

This hotel was brilliant, huge room with a proper kitchen, ideal for a longer stay or family group. We only stayed one night but would definitely go back for a week or so. Right in the centre of town, 15 min walk to the beach, good cafes close by. Best of all though was the staff at reception who went...

We have recently stayed here with family for Christmas it was very nice and quite, service was good and over all the motel was very clean and tidy, use of gym was a bonus as well as being so close to town.

This is simply a stunning hotel and was the sort of hotel I try and find . Having said that hard to get this quality in Australia outside the major cities, I find so many places are motel like , remind me of American motels which are generally horrible and forgettable . The sebel harbour side is the total opposite...
