Lacepede Bay Motel & Restaurant
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Kingston SE
Reviewed 11 March 2014

We arrived late into Kingston SE at the end of the main season so most places were closed or winding down. The nice people (sorry didn't get your names) made us feel very welcome after our long drive. The location was superb, right on he sea front. The room, was clean and adequate, but the best part was the awesome breakfast, served in our room that set us up for the next day.

Value for money , restaurant on site and lovely meal , room was basic but very clean and comfortable , just what we needed after a long drive . Hosts were more than accommodating , friendly and chatty . Location was perfect , just across from water , spectacular sunset and dawn next morning . Would recommend this motel to everyone .

Great ocean views from our room, ask for ocean facing. Swim in pool at end of day on the road and pool towels provided, free wi fi in all rooms, restaurant only open Thurs to Sunday but we had great meal at pub next door.

Stayed here on business trip drive between Mel & Adelaide. Kingston is a bit of a sleepy hollow there's not much to see or do in town. The coastline is very nice and a good place to stretch your legs after spending a day behind the wheel. The owner Maureen makes you feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble for her.Evening meals are pub type fare, reasonably priced and cooked freshly. There's draught and bottle beers available and wines if you feel like it.
The executive rooms are as some one else on here has stated are dated, bed was hard and the pillows very firm. However, the quiet location and makes this up a little. Would stay again if I had too.

Room Tip: Grab the executive rooms. They have a sunroom in front of them and seafront views.

We recently stayed at this motel on our way along the Great Ocean Road from Melbourne to Adelaide. We booked a family room overlooking the pool. The room was clean and well presented although a bit dated and could use a facelift. Beds comfy and decent sized room for family of 4 and good value for money. Check in staff were friendly. The WIFI was terrible and we could not have more than one person on a device at any given time. Being a family room could be handy to have a toaster/cereal bowls etc for people travelling.

We stayed one night in Kingston SE in an executive queen room that was located upstairs with a view over the foreshore and ocean. The room was clean and reasonably comfortable and the bed was quite good. The ensuite bathroom was small though, with a narrow shower (cracked screen), basin and toilet all tucked in fairly closely together. The executive rooms upstairs share a common, enclosed guest balcony with easy chairs outside each room, which sounds quite good, but we were forced to close the main window of the room and the curtains because other guests were sitting outside and talking (not loudly) until after 9 pm and we just wanted to lie on the bed and watch some tennis after a long day's drive. Unfortunately, it sounded like these people were sitting right in our room (through no fault of their own). The wif-fi would not work in our room either. The motel is looking quite tired overall but there are limited accommodation options in Kingston and it was okay as a one night stopover but I wouldn't really like to stay in the room we were in for several nights.

Great place to stay. Quiet surroundings right on the beach. great restaurant food, the steak in particular. Within metres from a footpath along beautiful beachfront. Only 3.5 hrs drive from Adelaide. Within an hours drive from World heritage Naracoorte caves

Room Tip: Would like bathroom door to be a sliding door to create more space in the bathroom
