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.

This would have to be one of the worst motels. The room itself was more than adequate in size, although rather dated. The bathroom ought to have been condemned, toilet bowl was disgustingly stained, the shower screen was frozen with rust and only one of the three sliding glass screens could be opened, making it difficult to get enter the...

Our short stay at Lacepede Bay Motel was unexpectedly more pleasant than the standard accommodation. We had a "sea view" room but as well as a good view we also had comfy armchairs on the enclosed balcony to enjoy that view. And breakfast was great too!

Pretty good, clean enough. food was ok - pub fare(ish), lady at check in seemed a little stressed however it may have been due to business over Easter break. Amazing location, literal walk across road to beach

I didn't actually stay at the hotel as I had to go back to adelaide a day early due to family commitments. I did however receive a phone call from a lady that I explained my situtation to she was incredibly rude and obnoxious towards me. So I actually very glad I had to go back to adelaide rather that...

The room had everything I needed and was located in a convenient location. Although relatively simple, the room and bathroom were clean and it was comfortable enough. For the amount I spent and the time I spent there it suited my needs well. The staff were friendly and inviting, and answered my queries as appropriate.
