My girlfriend booked a room for the two of us through Wotif for the weekend of 11th March at a princely sum of $119.--. On arrival we were given a key to the room No. 9 by an unfriendly bar person Renee. When we opened the door to the room No 9 to deposit our bags in, the room was...

Decrepit old hotel near the railway station. Long way from the beach. We had a mediocre lunch there but found they had run out of hamburger buns and also run out of fish (in Kiama ??) Steak was cooked OK but the meal took a long time with only one very overworked chef/cook. Decided not to stay the night. Lots...

this is quite possibly the worst room on earth. There are two beds, two raggedy towels and a light bulb. THAT. IS. IT. I mean sure, it's cheap A$79, but holy crap, this room is devoid of everything! There is no a/c, so you need to open the dirty, screenless window, which then not only let's in the mozzies, but...

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...

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.
