I was pretty road weary by the time I arrived at the motel & Liz the Manager assisted by providing a lovely quiet rear room. Outside were table & chairs overlooking the west facing lawn gardens & pool so I could enjoy a quiet wine at sunset. My room was comfortable & clean. And a lovely bonus, Liz offered a...

We stayed here to minimise driving distances. The whole place needs to be pulled down and from the road looks like an abandoned building, certainly did not live up to its trip advisor rating or whoever rated it must have been blind. This place is right out of the 70's, the only thing missing was a B&W TV. Uncomfortable Bedding,...

You can't miss this motel as it's immediately adjacent a giant (and i DO MEAN GIANT) lobster. The rooms are clean and have everything you need plus there is a bakery across the street that serves a mean breakfast!

Look for the ubiquitous big lobster and the motel is right nearby. Good old-fashioned motel with fine rooms and easy access, parking outside all. Two roadhouses nearby when you need them. Great breakfast at the Bakery across the road. A swimming pool to wash off the road grime. Walkway taking you right round the waterfront starts in the park across...

Overlook the fact that it is 'oldish', it is clean and great value to those wanting to save from expensive alternatives. Great place to base yourself for Kingston and Robe. Savings will cover your meals!

My wife and I stopped overnight here en route to Melbourne. We got a warm welcome at reception from Liz. We me turned that we had lost our mobile phone charger and she promptly gave us a replacement from her store. We have a small donation to the RSPCA box on the counter. She also gave us a map of...

This is the best place to stay in Kingston. Clean rooms, close to everything. Really nice bakery across the road, OTR next door with a Wendy's. So food, coffe, n a bakery, what more can you ask for. The lady who runs it is very pleasant, nice to talk to, n very helpful. They have a swimming pool, tv's in...

This was probably the worst motel I have ever stayed in. There were bugs everywhere, the room was dusty and gross. The place itself was creepy, with 2 doors - one main door and one on the opposite side that faced the other rooms. It was directly next to the 'big lobster'. I was scared to sleep to be honest,...

This was a fantastic place to stay. As a couple for hubby's school reunion, it was close to town and a bonus was having an OTR RIGHT nest door (open 24 hours). The host was accommodating and friendly, with a great knowledge of the area. Because it was the weekend, was pleasantly surprised to find the room had been given...

Pleasantly surprised by this motel. It was immaculately clean and provided a bed, lounge and dinning area and free wifi. The staff were friendly and helpful and even provided a microwave at short notice. It's also right next door to Larry the lobster! What more could you ask for?
