We stayed here for 2 nights in a Courtyard Room. I didn't see any of the other rooms, but the Courtyard Room was very comfortable and clean. It had a little terrace with table and chairs which was great for sitting out in the late afternoon. The retreat is only a few minutes drive from Flinders Chase Park which worked... More

Stayed one night. Room was clean and comfortable but the three of us couldn't get a hot shower as the hot water service didn't work well. Restaurant was nice but mains expensive at $30. Continental breakfast nice and reasonable at $17 as nothing else nearby.

Interesting place, made much more fun with an open fire pit. Fantastic BBQ packs provided - necessary as no other facilities available once the local shop shut. Large, basic room with adequate heating. Would have preferred ensuite facilities as we are older and hate getting up several times on cold nights to go to shared facilities.

I was expecting a more rustic room but our courtyard suite has King bed plus a single, refrigerator, safe. Large barroom with separate shower, bidet and large deep tub with very nice hot water. There is also a little porch table and chair as you enter the room. WiFi a bit sketchy and only in lobby.

Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat is located just outside the Flinders Chase National Park. The staff are very friendly. The rooms spacious and nicely appointed. Considering the isolated location the restaurant is surprisingly good. There is free wifi in the guest lounge, but not in the rooms.

We stayed here for one night on a 2 night trip to Kangaroo Island. The retreat is situated very close to the Flinders Chase National Park Visitor Centre, so ideal for exploring the beautiful national park. The retreat is beautifully landscaped around the rooms & in an isolated area, so wildlife can be viewed right from the deck of your... More

Very charming and relaxing apartments, simple, not luxury and fashionable but in the middle of the nature... Full of little nice Australian animals, it is an attraction itself! The... More

This restore is the closest to Flinders Chase national park and consequently the best place to start exploring is wonders. The hotel is essential but functional (in May the room was very cold at our arrival) and what we mostly appreciate was the location into the forest: we were lucky and before dinner we met a couple of possum walking...

Kangaroo Island ; we spent 3 nights on the Island in July 2015. We can strongly recommend this. We stayed at the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat at the western end of the island. This is right on the edge of the national park with spectacular walks and lots of wildlife including seals in close proximity . The accommodation was good... More
