“Very cosy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2008

My Wife and I stayed overnight in this hotel on a trip down the South Coast recently. It was quite cool on the night of our stay and we found our room to be very warm and cosy. The hotel doesn't look much on the outside but our room was great, it was very clean and was tastefully furnished (for the price), with a very comfortable king bed and a great ocean view. We wish we had stayed longer as we discovered Kiama is by far the nicest town on the south coast, we will definitely return one day and stay at this charming little hotel again.

My BF and I have just had a short break in kiama, and we stayed at Kiama Cove. Upon arrival, we found that the exterior of the motel looked a bit tired and worn, and were a little let down. However as we checked in, we were quite happy that we did get what we were expecting: an upstair room with king size bed, air-con and ocean view, with breakfast (cereal/toast/coffee/tea/juice/butter/jam) for A$99. Although there were damage to the paint of the wall, and stain on the carpet, these were really quite minor. The room was well-cleaned (although not completely spotless). I was quite impressed that all alliances (hairdryer/toaster/kettle/fridge/air-con/TV) and furniture looked new and clean. The bed/linen looked clean, crisp and new too. The location of the motel is very good, it is very close to the surf beach, and minutes walk to the town centre. Overall, we are quite happy with our stay at Kiama Cove. If you are looking for clean and comfortable accommodation with good location and view, yet at a reasonable price, I think Kiama Cove is quite adequate.

  • Liked — Good location, comfortable facilities and reasonable price
  • Disliked — Refurbish the exteria of the motel, and repair some of the minor damages in the room would be lovely.

What a huge disappointment! I don't why this place is called boutique?
The photos on the motel's website are misleading and do not show the state of the motel. The rooms were dirty and in need of a major renovation. We paid $180 for the night and we expected something great for that price.

MacgregorKiama, Manager at Kiama Cove Motel, responded to this review, 20 December 2006
We are at a loss to understand why this particular guest was so unhappy with their experience at our motel. We have a book full of accolades and thank yous and positive comments from our many, many extremely satisfied guests. So many of our guests return time and again, stating that they feel so at home here and are made to feel so welcome by our friendly, helpful staff. While the Kiama Cove Boutique Motel may not be as 'boutique' as some people may expect, we have beautiful clean rooms with quality inclusions and lovely ocean views.
