Perched overlooking the water, this modest motel deserves all the support possible!! Great location, walk to everything but most importantly, the family who own and run the Lacepede are just terrific. Supporting family owned businesses is so important and we had nothing but great service from these people, just several months in from taking over. Plans are afoot to do...

Centre of Kingston, on the beach at the jetty. Next door to the Old Wool Store Restaurant and the Royal Hotel. Always ask for a room with a balcony and ocean...

We called in last minute to stay overnight. Staff were more than happy to book us in late. The room was a good size, clean and well suited for our family of 4 plus it is directly opposite the pool. Which the boys loved.

Lovely location but the smell was terrible because of the bad weather and the beach piled high with rotting weed. Room very basic Bathroom disgusting with mould on the walls and rust ++ on door jambs. I know it is on the beach front but management need to make some improvements. It was one of the most expensive motels on...

Many thanks for your review Joan! You'll be happy to hear our local council has had all the seaweed removed & our beach is looking rather lovely now. Thank you for bringing the mould & rust problems to our attention. Our maintenance team have attended & all issues have been taken care of. Have a lovely day!

Yes it is an older motel, but our room was very clean and roomy. Sink and kitchen cupboard in room, plenty of other storage space, bed rather hard, lovely lawn in front of our room with plenty of room for vehicles. New operators very friendly.

My fiancé and I recently spent the weekend in Kingston and picked the lacapede motel as our motel of choice. The motel was a great location, situated right on the beach and within close proximity to the local shops, etc. We were somewhat disappointed however with the standard of the spa room. The front curtains of the main room had...

This motel is old & the rooms are shabby & not particularly clean. Air conditioning is problematic & the rooms are short even of power points! The tv was so small that you had to sit on the adjacent bed to see it! Not worth the $110 tariff despite the great location & convenience

This motel is very dated with the worst shower we have ever been in our lives . My husband is very easygoing but even he complained about this one. Though the staff were friendly the motel really does need some upkeep with terrible lumpy pillows. The bonus is its right on the water with a tranquil view Their restaurant was...

Stayed for one night on a trip through to the Great Ocean Road. Great location overlooking the beach. Some rooms have a shared enclosed balcony area. We rocked up on the day and all those were booked. We were given the next best thing which was a room with a balcony view near the top of the stairs. Very friendly...
