brilliantly positioned overlooking the sea - but only from the dining room and lounge!! The shower head had a problem with cleanliness, was scared to use it. Breakfast the following morning overlooking the bay was an experience!! I ordered white toast, butter and jam. That came with no problem but the 10" long dark hair in the butter was not... More

Situated right on foreshore of Kingston SE. Stroll to the jetty and enjoy the sparkling sea. The beaches are beautiful and safe. Lee the owner was very pleasant and most obliging with any requests. We stayed upstairs overlooking the ocean and there is an enclosed verandah to relax on. The room was a little outdated but comfortable and clean. I... More

Managers are lovely, warm and welcoming. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Mine had a queen and a single. Shower water pressure excellent. And they have a guest laundry. Only $3 a load. When your on the road to wash and not sit and watch it go around is a luxury. My room overlooked the bay and 2nd door lead... More

Kingston is a great place for a holiday to visit family and friends who have farmed around here for decades. The motel is clean and comfortable and very quiet and relaxing and well away from the highway. The owners are fairly efficient in what they do, without being too interfering. Lots of great areas to explore and things to do... More

The old style motel complex is located opposite the water, with great views from the first floor rooms, although access is from stairs. Ground floor rooms also available but no view. Car parking directly outside room. Great staff with that country style attitude. There is an on site restaurant, but check what times it is open in the low season.... More

This motel we found to be up to the standards of a 3 star Motel and nicely situated to the coast as well as the small township. The room was clean and well presented and the staff were very nice and helpful.

The Deluxe Ocean View room that we occupied was clean,comfortable and well maintained.As we now have difficulty climbing stairs it is a pity that the ocean view can not be seen from the ground floor rooms. However, we would stay again if in the area.

Good points, large room, quiet, walk to restaurants, foreshore, shops, free wifi. Bad points, a bit unloved, only block out curtains on the windows, open them and everyone walking or driving past can see into the room. No plug in hand basin, no hook for clothes. Could not open the window for fresh air.

Found this motel around 8pm when deciding to stop driving for the night. Rooms are cheap and basic. The sliding door on the bathroom is hard to close from the inside as it has no guide and pushes out from the wall. There is no exhaust in the bathroom and this makes it very stuffy and claustrophobic when showering. Bed... More

Room was tired and needed a revamp. Bathroom floors not clean. Smelt musty and cobwebs all along window behind curtains with their spiders. Small room. Big sign out front advertising restaurant, but it only opens Friday and Saturday nights. The pub next door has great meals.
