The only good thing about this place is the location. 5 minute walk to the beach. Smelly, extremely dated rooms and dirty shared bathrooms with no hot water. Felt very unsafe. Bar staff were pleasant enough but seriously, spent 20 bucks extra and stay somewhere that isn't a health hazard.

Honestly, save your money and do ANYTHING ELSE. The worst room i have ever stayed in, and I stayed in what they called a 'dog kennel' in Europe. This was filth. The room was disgusting, our bed sheets were not even made. The sheets were COVERED in hair and dirt and who knows what else. We over heard the cleaner... More

We went for lunch and a couple of drinks and left pretty quickly. We didn't book a room. While the prices were good and atmosphere and food were pretty ordinary. There are much better places in Kiama so save your time.

Omg, DO NOT EVER STAY HERE...EVER We booked in & then booked out 1/2 hr later. Cigarette butts on the floor, dirty towels, soiled mattresses, mouldy curtains, dust everywhere, dirty walls & floor, & the smell. The photo they use is NOTHING like the actual room AT ALL. Luckily I booked through wotif.com & they got me back a full... More

We always rely on going to the local pub for a good meal and great atmosphere. The dinning room closed early. But opened again with a very bling and limited menu. Parma was over fried and microwaved to melt the tiny sprinkle of cheese on top of the jar of tomTo paste....I think I've got the message through! No vegetables,... More

There are a lot of reasons why I would not recommend this Hotel to stay! I booked this accommodation for myself and my twelve year old daughter. I accept I didn't read reviews til the night before. I didn't realise that it was shared showers and toilets and requested a room next to them, which they did. But the room... More

This hotel and studios (in which I stayed) could do with a bit of an update. But it was cheap and you get what you pay for. It was all a bit drab and smelt musty. Try and avoid ANZAC day - it got a bit noisy sleeping behind the pub. Can't fault the location though. This is a beautiful... More

When we checked in, it took a while for to get served by staff, Rooms had mould on the ceiling. Hot water in the showers was pretty much non existent, no screen on the windows, Also we had to request to change rooms as there were no power points (needed a power point for our sleep (CPAP) machine,

Rooms terrible for the price. Stayed one night - stopover on the way to Sydney 2 adults and 2 children. Room consisted of just beds in very small room. We had one double, two singles.

I was ignored by staff while I was standing there asking to organise accommodation, while they rushed to serve everyone at the bar alcohol. There were three staff and I had to ask all three of them before I was finally served. Live band playing extremely loudly until midnight. Beds flimsy and creaky to a scary degree. Room hot and...
