JJGreyNomads 16/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

We’d found the Sebel only a month earlier when our usual motel had closed its restaurant due to Covid limiting patrons. We decided to try the Sebel and it is now our favourite South Coast Accommodation spot. The staff are absolutely fantastic Kay booked us in and while reception isn’t her normal job she was great. The room staff do a great job and are so considerate of the guests. The restaurant staff are faultless and the chef could easily make me put on too much weight. A few days in Kiama is Bliss as we always spend half a day at the Two Figs winery near Berry. Then our check out experience with Rebecca as perfect such a lovely way to finish off a beautiful stay. We will certainly return to the Sebel. It is now our ‘Go to’ spot.

Consistently great experience

We were on a return roadtrip to Sydney having travelled South to Eden over 10 days and stopped at the Sebel Kiama overnight. It was a great way to conclude our trip.

We were planning our regular trip to the South Coast to visit a favourite winery overlooking the Shoalhaven River when I received a phone call to say the restaurant in our normal motel would be closed due to Covid. So, plan ‘B’. Find another place to stay. Well, as they say, everything happens for a reason and we now have the Sebel at Kiama which is going to be our regular stay. We had a very comfortable room. The room service was excellent and every day we returned to a fresh room. The greeting we received on arrival was also excellent, even through a face mask the young lady was so professional and helpful. The highlight of our trip, besides going to the Two Figs winery was the beautiful restaurant and excellent meals. Whilst patronage is low due to Covid the service and food was top notch. A special thank you to Bethany, Chantel and Caroline in the restaurant and to Ivana at reception. These ladies were the face of a most enjoyable few days in Kiama and we are already planning our next trip to visit the gorgeous area. The lock of the Sebel made it very easy to do anything you wanted to in town without using the car. We easily walked to the Blowhole and then all around town. We are certainly looking forward to a return visit to the Sebel and the wonderful restaurant. THANK YOU for such a lovely stay. J&J.

Stayed here for a wedding, room was dirty and had holes and paint missing of all walls and furniture

Covid restrictions did not help.

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Anonymous Business - 15/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Location was arranged for me and was suitably located. Due to restrictions it was quiet and facilities could not be availed of. Reception staff were all friendly and helpful. The restaurant was closed and I had two meals delivered to my room not that it was my preference. It was disappointing that a tray delivery charge was applied in the circumstances. The oil used for the garlic and herb bread was not the best and the fish batter was thick and unappetising. I would be inclined to eat elsewhere next time.

Good location, friendly staffs, great housekeeping

Well located, lovely room, unable to access parking as all spaces were taken, not sure they were all hotel guests? Maybe stricter restrictions around who can access it

Have stayed with you previously. A bit disappointed with “Reception “.When I enquired about WiFi I was met with a fairly arrogant response and told to read the “welcome note”.I was given another one with the arrogant hi lighter of the relevant section.

Please rest assured that I am taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence.

We appreciate your sharing your concerns and the positives, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future.
