      Great value, beautiful views.”

      This is an older style motel with limited facilities but if you're not fussed about spa baths and trendy decor it is great value for money and in a fantastic position. Our room had spectacular views over the ocean and we could walk anywhere in the little town of Kingscote from the convenient location. Also the room seemed a little larger than the average motel room with a kitchenette area with toaster, plates, bowls, cutlery etc allowing us to easily make our own breakfasts. Friendly staff too and nice and clean.

      1. By the beach 2. Fast check-in & outs 3. 1hour drive from Penneshaw

      Its very basic place, which I guess was what we expected. What I did not realize that there was no en-suite bathroom for our room (I must have not noticed while booking) To have that was extra AUD 40 which did not make it that value for money stay. If you know you want to stay in Kingscote area, this is walking distance to the beach & the city centre. Nothing wrong but nothing WOW about the place.

      Separate bedroom for grandkids, position, price

      The motel is very tired. The net curtains seem to be bio degrading. Lock not working on the toilet door. Plenty of room to spread out (Matthew Flinders suite) for two adults and two kids, 11 and 13 years. Access to toilet and shower through washroom not perfect for grandchildren with grandaughters! Breakfast very boring. Fresh fruit some days and/ or pastries would have made a change but it was adequate.

      Close to beach, restaurants and down town

      From the beginning, we were surprised with the increase in hotel rent for our child although we specified the number of adults and kids when we booked the room. The bathroom was not clean. Our room had not been serviced over the 3 nights stay. On the second day of the stay, we received a letter from the management telling us that our room has not been serviced because of bad smell and a peace of bread found on the ground and we would be charged for extra cleaning!! Although there were few number of "no smoking" around our room, some people who used to enter "only staff" facilities were smoking close to the reception. Overall, if we had the choice to choose again, we wouldn't chose this motel for our stay.
