As we drove up we thought “oh dear!” - it looked a bit like a run down 50’s style Road Movie set! But when we walked up to the room (Room 6) we were knocked out by the view across a football field to the surf beach! The room had a King size bed, was recently redecorated and very clean... More

We went to Kiama to help a friend celebrate his 70th birthday. We flew to Sydney then took the train to Kiama. The train system in Sydney in realation to the airport is fantastic. It is just over two hours on the train to Kiama. A leisurely trip along the coast. This hotel is walking distance from the beautiful Kiama... More

My stay was more than comfortable, the room was very clean and functional. The location is excellent and walking distance to most things you would wish to undertake during your state, I would stay again.

My husband & I stopped here overnight in a standard room while heading south. For $130 on a long weekend in the middle of school holidays, I can't complain. Accomodation was basic, but clean, comfortable and quiet, and in easy walking distance of town and the blowhole.

Perfect location for a visit to Kiama. We stayed three nights and were very pleased with both the accommodation and staff. Sure the place is dated, but the rooms are clean and well appointed. The view from the upstairs units, overlooking Surf Beach is truly wonderful. The Motel is within easy walking distance of the railway station, the town centre... More

The location of the Motel was along Bong Bong Street in Kiama and we were in a relatively small room for three people. We were there for an Anniversary weekend and the weather was relatively overcast.

The rooms are reasonably small and dated. The bathroom is old and cramped. The view over the playing fields and the ocean is good. The motel is walking distance from the town centre, blowhole and beach. The room was quiet.

We are just here for one night but have stayed here many times before. This place has the best location in Kiama! Rooms are clean and what you would expect from an older style motel, but we love this place! The ocean view rooms have amazing views over surf beach, and you can hear the waves crashing all night long!... More

I found this place via googling it and the price. Very nicely furnished, big room, beautiful view of the sea. I thought the bed was so huge that I got lost in it. I could spread myself as wide as I could and really relaxed for the night. I had a good night's sleep. The only thing I would change... More
