The hotel is only about a 10 minute walk to downtown. Beautiful location with all the rooms having ocean views. The hotel also has the best place to eat on the island. The restaurant food was much better than anywhere else we ate.

We stayed one night as part of a tour (with Exceptional Kangaroo Island) and couldn't fault the service or room. We had a large corner room, with a small seating area and a jacuzzi bath. The view looking out over the sea was lovely. As part of the tour the hotel booked us dinner at a restaurant called Bella (which... More

Have a short stay at this inn. It is just across the road from a small beach, and about 10-20 min walk to Kingscote main street (depending on how fast/slow you walk). When we were there, the chef was on holidays and so there was no dinner (only breakfast) and we had to go to town for our meals. Chris... More

Had a lovely stay during off season. Stayed one night with 3 people. Room was a bit cold, it was the coldest night of the year, but the extra blankets kept us warm. All in all very satisfied for the price.

The building is getting a bit old and the decor may be a bit dated, but this place is comfortable, and all the rooms do really have decent sea views. The Seaside Inn is a short way out of the centre of Kingscote, but it's a pleasant stroll into town for dinner, coffee or shopping if you don't want to... More

The Seaside Inn is across the street from the sea, with nice views through big windows and comfy chairs to sit it facing the sea. There's a sailing club down on the beach, and the members were doing some manuevers between buoys until the sun set. The hotel has a restaurant where we ate dinner one night. After that a... More
