Not Good!

Very very disappointing....arrived in room and found window in the kitchenette(next to back door) to be broken and missing, manager wasn't to concerned, said to costly to get someone to fix a small job! Not only the security of our belongings but also our safety would have been compromised! After a call to the manager we were given the room next door. The whole place had safety issues,balcony railings rotten,light fittings hanging out of walls,also the bathroom shower was thick with soap scum!Everywhere you looked there was building materials and overgrown gardens!In general the place was dirty!

tiring

right from the start it was wrong...firstly they werent aware of a wheelchair let alone that there was a 3rd person ( a child)..they were good enough to upgrade us to another room for no extra cost.....being woken up at 5 in morning by noisy drunken people doesnt give for a happy experience...then 4.30 the next morning by car doors continuously closing...then just after 5 the following morning by garbage trucks in carpark over the back...not at all happy

Quick beach break

A great place to stay for a few nights or longer at a budget price as it is located close to essential supplies such as food, chemist, newsagent and a bottle shop. It is also located close to food outlets which is very handy when you have hungry kids and don't want to drive anywhere or cook. There are no cooking facilities [including was no toaster or microwave in our room] however there is a BBQ near the pool so you could easily cook outdoors if you needed to. You will need to bring plates and cutlery and extra beach towels in case the dryer is out of action. Beaches are just a short drive away and the staff were friendly and helpful at all times. Great air conditioning and amazing salt water pool facilities.

Was a great place to stay. Close to shops and fast food outlets. Close to the beaches and fishing spots. The pool was great and the kids enjoyed the tennis court and forte near the pool.

we were greeted by the staff like we were members of their own family. The family room that we had was huge and very comfortable.

Overnight

If this is 3* I don't want to experience anything less. I booked a Studio room because it was self contained. In the write up it said it contained a sofa - there wasn't one, so nowhere comfortable to sit. Cooking pots... there wasn't any. The frypans were so grotty we would not cook in them. the electric frypan was old, aluminium I think and not clean. Not enough dishwashing liquid supplied, many tiles in the toilet area were badly chipped. There were lots of little things... I could not recommend this place except for its location.

Cosy little motel

Location was great. I liked the fact that it wasn't in the main part of town, just out. Loads of shops to choose from especially if you have kids and need to duck out to the supermarket or chemist etc. The room was a good size. Facilities were good. Bathroom could have done with a better scrub though. Overall experience was great.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

There are lots of places for a nice BBQ. If your on a budget go to the local supermarket and plan lots of nice picnics. There are BBQ facilities within close proximity and short drives away. Kings Beach was FANTASTIC for the family !!
