Stayed just the one night and really could only give it an average. Situated right on the beach front its location is second to none. Guy at reception was friendly and helpful but our room was small and out dated. The smallest TV I've ever seen and the air con was years old. The bathroom would best be described as... More

We stayed here for 1 night when we were passing through, we should have stayed in Robe! Kingston was very quiet and boring, Robe had more atmosphere. The Motel really had no charm and it felt dusty, staff were nice but the rooms were a little depressing.

You pay for the view here and the enclosed balcony. Rooms are dated and we were initially very disappointed when we found a healthy amount of spider webs on the bathroom ledge. Opened the lid to the toilet that had a "Hygienically Sealed for your Convenience" strip on it, only to find that the bowls was soiled from a previous... More

We stayed here one night as part of a week-long road-trip. The room is basic but clean and heater worked well as it was a bit chilly. The restaurant was closed while we were there but a restaurant was available next door - so very convenient. Receptionist/hostess was very nice and gracious. Would recommend to travelers going through this small... More

Pretty much what you expect from a motel in a small town. The rooms are quite compact so if you're sharing with other than one other - make sure you get along well. The one thing that was strange was a lack of cutlery and crockery, other than coffee cups and teaspoons. Good shower though. The weather wasn't great while... More

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 The room was a little outdated but comfortable and clean.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
