This place is good if you want to spend a night in Kingscote. Not too far from a pub, not too far from the grocery store. Clean and not complicated. Free wifi. Nice sea views. By the style and furniture, freshly renovated in the early 1990s. But all that being said, one of the good options in Kingscote. For international... More

Stayed here for a night while on Kangaroo Island. We got in pretty late and still managed to get a room. The room itself was pretty okay, nothing special. Some rooms have a shared shower and bathroom but when you are staying just a night its totally worth it if you get the room for pretty cheap. They do have... More

This motel is rather dated but its facilities are still good. The spacious room is clean and has amenities like kettle, coffee & tea provisions, toiletries and hairdryer. There is a verandah outside the room with chairs for you to relax on. As we had chosen a room with a view of the sea, it was great to be able... More

oldfashioned aircon noisey, hard to use, fridge noisy-leaked when switched off, curtains wont cover outside lights,cant get decent shower,no bedside radio, OK bed, clean. Needs total fitout to warrant cost. I didnt complain to manager as that is obviously the standard of all.

I booked this hotel via the Sealink website when I booked the ferry ride over to Kangaroo Island. It seemed competitively priced and well located in Kingscote. Only a quiet road separates the property from the cliffs overlooking the ocean. It is a short 5 minute walk to the main street and about 10 minutes to the jetty. Parking was... More

Large room. Great view looking out on the water.Internet access works well on balcony outside room but not inside, who cares sit outside and look at the view. The facilities are dated but clean. Easy walk to restaurants. Overall good value for money. I would definitely stay again.

Before I go on.... The staff a great, they addressed all queries immediately... The motel though is very dated, and basic..... but the room was serviced daily, and therefore cleanliness is not a concern. We stayed in one of the ocean view rooms, and the view was superb, being effectively on Napean Bay The "free wifi" was run from a... More

Bed made, bins emptied & towels replaced each day (we stayed 5 nights) It is a little old & dated though, no exhaust in the bathroom so there is a little mould in the shower but thats not a major thing as i said its very inexpensive and the...

Great location for a motel in the lovely town of Kingscote. Perfect for exploring Kangaroo Island. Staff very friendly, room spacious and well appointed. Ample parking available. Would happily recommend to others.

Great Position & view, value for money, has character & loved the wrap around veranda of the guest house, clean, needs a bigger TV & updating / renovating - shared bathrooms were clean - we enjoyed our stay. However, we were there on the long weekend in Kingscote - the main town on KI & there were only 2 places... More
