Room and bathroom way too small. If you are lucky you will get a parking space on premises. Would not stay there again. Power point in bathroom did not work. Globes in stand lamps not working. A/C was good.

We stayed for one night at the Kiama Cove Boutique Motel. As soon as we opened the door, the very strong smell of cleaning detergent hit us (and never left). It was certainly clean and conveniently located in Kiama, but this old motel really needs a makeover. The room, plus everything in it, is quite dated, and shows damage from... More

We stayed at the Kiama Cove for two nights, in two different rooms and both were fantastic. The first night we were in a room with a Queen and single bed, with ocean views. The room was great, plenty of room for luggage, bathroom clean and user friendly, even a TV and DVD player. There was a fridge, microwave, kettle,... More

Stayed here overnight on a short visit with a friend. The room was clean and amenities were good. Tea/Coffee-MWO-fridge. Close to The Blowhole and town centre, Close to beach with balcony and beautiful water views. Small problem was balcony door was difficult to open due I think to the salt erosion. Overall I enjoyed stay and would stay here again.

Stayed here for 1 night to have a short getaway. The room was clean and the window overlooked the beach, which you could hear when the window was open. Reasonably priced considering its closeness to the towns centre. Walking distance to blowhole, restaurants and many yummy cafes. For somewhere to rest your head whilst you explore the surrounds it was... More

Received a friendly welcome after ringing the reception bell twice. Paid the balance of our stay before checking out the room. On entering the room the curtains were closed, when opened revealing part of the window covered and a wall of the building next door. The shower wasn't suitable for my wife so requested another room.

Great view for the price in this clean motel and the pub was close for good food and then we had breakfast at one of the cafes in walking distance towards the main street. I walked for an hour in the evening and then early the next morning with amazing views, Kiama is a real gem on the NSW coastline.

I was really unhappy when I arrived in my room to see old outdated furniture that had no theme what so ever. As a boutique, I expected more from the room. The lights looked like they were removed from outdoors and placed on the walls. There is water damage on almost every surface of the roof. The toilet took 30mins... More
