We booked 5 nights in the ocean view. And it didn't disappoint. Room was clean and spacious enough. Were able to make toast and hot drinks. TV was great. Some one came in each day and made our bed,did any dishes and replaced soaps etc. lovely and quiet,plenty of parking.walking distance to shops. Great spot!

This has been the best place we've stayed on the island so far. That said, it has also been the most expensive but is still reasonable, by island standards. There were four adults travelling (my wife and I and her parents). We've traveled together before so the small room with one queen and two singles didn't bother us too much.... More

Rooms were reasonably spacious but tired. Bar fridge is very small for a room offering toasters and plates etc. Staff are very helpful and the property is close to town and above the town's tidal swimming pool. 100 kms from Flinders Chase National Pk centre, but not much closer

Rooms have that 60s feeling. But those on the sea side wing have at least sea views. The rooms are clean and the bathroom is reasonable modern with good hot water. But... Paper thin walls Tiny TV screen A noisy water pump from the rear of the units. Price fortunately not that much.

We booked this hotel through Sealink when visiting Kangaroo Island. The rooms reminded me of a Butlins holiday camp for those who are of a particular age group. They advertised continental breakfast included but this turned out to be boxes with cereal,milk in a carton, fruit juice, and cake. You had to collect this from reception. In fairness rooms were...

Had two nights in a sea-facing room with superb views over the car park to the ocean. Room was spotless, shower worked perfectly and the operators were extremely helpful. Laundrette worked welll and restaurants within walking distance,

This place is a bit dated and funky, but overall, I found it charming, comfortable and clean. There's a few sections of the motel that are newer than others. We stayed in the older section with a shared bath. The bathroom was a bit far away from the room, so if that is important to you, make sure you check... More

What a location! If you book a Seaview motel room, that is exactly what you get, with the added bonus of a verandah and chairs for sitting outside your room to enjoy the view. Close to the main shopping and eateries on the island, makes this location even better. Good price, clean and good staff.

I booked a room in the guest house, with shared bathroom, because the rate was better, and so not surprisingly the room was dated and a little worn - but very clean and comfortable. Alana at reception is amazing and when I sought her advice on what I should do about getting to and from the airport to pick up... More

The best thing about this motel is the location. The sea view room was tired. Needs a make over. Bed was fair, pillows hard, bring your own, Virtually no room between the double bed and the window. Smallest TV mounted high in the corner .Carpet worn and stained, could feel the smooth edge tacks with your feet where the lino... More
