Great quiet position with an unobstructed sea view from the first floor. Decided on an extra night in the south east and decided Kingston might be a good spot. Turned out to be a great spot. Although the Lacepede Motel has a quiet exterior the interior is warm and inviting, our room was beautifully presented, crisp and clean laundry with... More

We stayed in a "Standard" room. Fred, presumably the manager, was very obliging, loaning us a toaster for our own breakfast however the Reception area appeared to be untidy which gave a poor expression. The room was very small but clean. It was inconvenient as the queen bed was too close to the wall & had no bedside table. The... More

We arrived at the hotel and went to our room but found the bathroom dirty, it looked like the basin hadn't been cleaned as it had 3 straight medium length hairs on the basin surround and other random marks which looked like toothpaste. the curtain on the window would only close when you moved the bed and shook the top,...

Your run of the mill no stars but clean, with bathroom, airco and fridge motel. Two stories high with on the groundfloor reception and a (not always open) restaurant. The ocean is a hundred meters away. There are oceanview rooms but don't pay the big bucks to get one as the view is not that spectacular. Payment with Amex gets... More

We stayed at this motel on our 10th stop on a trip around Australia, for one night and note the following for the review: * Located across from the beach, the location is hard to beat * Hotel / pub just few steps away for meals and local grocery shop next to the pub. So all basic amenities within walking... More

The staff said it was a room with a kitchenette. It turned out that they meant by kitchenette was a jug and a sink. How many motel rooms in oz don't have such facilities? When asked whether we had been given the wrong room they told me that this is what's meant by a kitchenette. C'mon guys - even the... More

this hotel has some issues but if you are still reading then maybe you are looking for a cheaper style or are desperate! The location is great, near the beach and jetty. The bed is comfortable but that is pretty much where the good news ends! We had a balcony room with ocean views, the problem is the balcony is... More

I was passing through for work & stayed only one night in a standard room on the ground floor. My room was average, with a small bathroom & small TV but it was clean & tidy. The room probably needs an update, curtains were falling down & the appearance could be a bit more modern. The location though is perfect,... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night, mainly because we had a late departure from Adelaide, but also because there are not many reasonably priced motels in Robe. This one was good value and as described on their website. The free wifi was very useful and the staff were very helpful, despite our late arrival on a Sunday... More

It's old but tidy. Location is fantastic. That's where the charm ends. When we enquired where to park our truck so as not to annoy others when we departed early, the reply from the owner, was "I don't care, it won't wake me up,". In our room a light globe was blown and the curtains fell from their track easily,... More
