Hotel has been under new management and now they've opened up the restaurant. Being a local thought we'd give it a go. So very glad we tried it out. Meals were reasonably priced, comparable to pub prices yet a much more intimate and quieter atmosphere. The four of us all enjoyed our meals and the quality of the food was...

Nice little place right opposite beach. Has swimming pool and free bbq to use. We stayed in room that had a twin bed and two singles. Small bathroom with toilet shower. But great little place tucked away. Has a great place next door for breaky as they dont have a restaurant. Nice place to visit. Very tidy.

We booked one of the balcony rooms and I'm so glad we did. The views out over the water are great. Room was a good size, serviced each day and had all the usual tea/coffee facilities/iron/hairdryer/safe. Family who run it are friendly and can't do enough for you - happy to chat even though they always seem busy. They have...

Perched overlooking the water, this modest motel deserves all the support possible!! Great location, walk to everything but most importantly, the family who own and run the Lacepede are just terrific. Supporting family owned businesses is so important and we had nothing but great service from these people, just several months in from taking over. Plans are afoot to do...

We called in last minute to stay overnight. Staff were more than happy to book us in late. The room was a good size, clean and well suited for our family of 4 plus it is directly opposite the pool. Which the boys loved.

Lovely location but the smell was terrible because of the bad weather and the beach piled high with rotting weed. Room very basic Bathroom disgusting with mould on the walls and rust ++ on door jambs. I know it is on the beach front but management need to make some improvements.

Yes it is an older motel, but our room was very clean and roomy. Sink and kitchen cupboard in room, plenty of other storage space, bed rather hard, lovely lawn in front of our room with plenty of room for vehicles. New operators very friendly.

My fiancé and I recently spent the weekend in Kingston and picked the lacapede motel as our motel of choice. The motel was a great location, situated right on the beach and within close proximity to the local shops, etc. We were somewhat disappointed however with the standard of the spa room. The front curtains of the main room had...
