My partner and I stayed here over night and found the motel fine for our needs. It was easy to catch a taxi before and after the party attended. Sure the room was not huge but it was big enough and we had no problems at all.

The photo on booking.com of the pool shows the establishment's best feature, the pool. The room would have been alright 30 years ago. Well overdue for a complete overhaul. It is also quite a distance from the main street and all of the eateries so bring a packed lunch.

Expensive for a basic room....had been repainted which was obvious by the paint splatters left, room had a strong deodorising smell. Bathroom and shower was tiny and room small.Noisy due to people moving around in the room upstairs. Positives were that the bed was comfy, shower was hot and reception staff pleasant.

After a friendly check in, we went to our room which was smallish but well equipped with everything one needed for an overnight stay. The bed was firm and comfortable, the small bathroom showing signs of wear and needed concentrated cleaning in the crevices and corners. OK for an overnight or two at the most. The price we thought was... More

Small, clean and well equipped rooms. In an excellent location close to the main part of town as well as beaches and local points of interest. Great service with quiet rooms, I stay here whenever I'm in town.

Stayed here this past weekend to go an air show that was subsequently cancelled but since we had already paid we went anyway. Bed was hard and not very comfortable and you could hear the shower next door like it was in our room it was so loud! Apart from that it was very clean and close to town. Would... More

Neat little motel just up the road from the main part of town. Great for an overnight work stay , rooms are not huge but value for money with a modern bathroom, comfy bed and quiet location , I particularly like the $10 breakfast box , great for travellers

As a budget Motel it tick t all the boxes and provided more than expected . What impressed us most was the helpfulness of the staff to post back our wireless modem that we left there when we booked out. All it took was a phone call and it was in the post a few days later. Will definitely recommend... More

Stayed here for one night on a last minute decision to stop overnight in Kiama. It has all you need. It is definitely a budget option. Rooms are small, clean and have the basics. Bathroom and linen were fresh and well maintained. Not much road noise but a bit of noise travels from neighbouring rooms. A good budget choice for... More
