We found the Seaside Inn to be comfortable and clean. The beds were also comfortable and the location across the road from the beach was great. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Seaside Inn

Stayed for one night 23 January with my wife. Spacious and clean room with a view of the bay and quite at night. The shower was a bit odd with a shower curtain sectioning off a portion of the bathroom, but it worked. Free WiFi with good speed is a plus. The staff is friendly and helpful. A continental breakfast... More

The view of the Bay was great - but only after we had requested that the windows be cleaned. The bathroom was a bit tired. The spa bath looked uninviting and we didn't use it. In any event the request was not to use the spa before 7.30am to avoid upsetting other guests. The staff are friendly and generally the... More

KI Seaside Inn is a very well positioned motel within a short walk to the middle of Kingscote, yet far enough away to be nice and quiet. By reputation has a great restaurant. Rooms are nice and large with fantastic views across Nepean Bay. Would recommend to anyone wanting to saty in Kingscote

Well located, this motel was reasonably priced and the rooms were also reasonable in comfort and cleanliness. We had thought that staying in Kingscote would mean we had more options for meals and such, but beware -- very little was open on a weekend in September! Had a steak dinner at the motel which was also reasonable in price and... More

Stayed for 1 night here. The room was large, clean with excellent ocean view. Wifi was very fast. The staff is very nice and helpful. The free breakfast was excellent. Waffles was provided too but we declined as we were already full :) I think it should be tasted good too.

Stayed for one night while exploring the island. Rooms are becoming a little tired, but very clean and spacious. The restaurant was very good. Reasonable prices and steaks arrived as ordered. Very good customer service from staff who were happy to store our luggage until checking time in the afternoon. Happy to recommend.
