4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel was better than I expected, woke up with unbeatable sea view, really beautiful stars full of sky in the evening. Reception provided very good information on the dining in Kingscote and places to see around it. Only the toilet and air condition were a bit noisy considering the night at the sea side was really quiet and peaceful.

Great service, clean rooms with generous size, great bed, polite staff, unsurpassed view across the bay, we have just spent 5 days in paradise. The restaurant has a good continental breakfast. The evening meal there was really great. Even the water tastes good on the island, so much to do, everywhere we visited was so friendly we are committed to... More

We had a lovely stay. We got good information at check-in. The laundry came in handy. My only suggestion would be that the lighting was a little wimpy. Not good for reading in bed, but we just wanted to sleep.

Nice and clean room, customer service at reception was pretty ordinary though. Close to the beach, easy access to the main street and restaurants. We didn't try their restaurant due to limited opening hours

We were a group of 25 and Chris took wonderful care of us. We had a delicious meal in the evening and a great breakfast in the morning. The view from my room was of the ocean and I even had a whirlpool tub in my bathroom. The hotel was clean and the staff was excellent.

I liked the solid build of the motel, the view was great as was proximity to the beach and town only a few mins by bike or car. There were a few minor points about which I left feedback on the form provided. They seem open to that. There was a dripping tap and stiff sliding door to go out... More

The inn is older school but very nice and very clean. We had a spacious second floor room with a balcony that faced the bay. Beautiful views of... More

Our upstairs room was very clean, had everything we expected. We were fortunate to see the weather change over the bay. Spectacular. Breakfast at $15 is a bit steep, though, for toast and cereal. Chris was a charming host.

A friendly hotel with good service. They served a very good breakfast. The only disappointment we experienced is that the restaurant only opens on Friday and Saturday evenings. The hotel's location means you have a stunning view over the bay. Our room with a balcony was very large but the amenities were basic.
