We stayed at this hotel and found the location was great. Quiet and very close to main part of Kingscote. We were not expecting too much and if you are looking for a nice hotel with wifi and good television for a reasonable price I think you would be happy. Sure kangaroo Island has better hotels for a lot more... More

Asst. Mgr. showed me to my 2nd floor room and failed to tell me where the light switch for the overhead reading-lamp was! (read with a head lamp)and later found that the switch was UNDER the pillows. The shower, when turned in, wet my nightgown as well as the toilet paper and required repairs. Large noisy groups arrived at the... More

Hi Dale W I can remember your stay with us and before you arrived at our Inn we were made aware that you'd had some mix-up with your touring company regarding the dates booked and you did not receive any refund for the mix-up. This incident had nothing to do with us, however, when you arrived and we were checking... More

We stayed in the Executive Suite for 2 nights and in a normal standard room for the 3rd night (coz we extended our stay from 2 to 3 days). Staffs were very friendly and services were good. The Executive Suite was very good - everything's bigger, has a dinner table, a bigger fridge, a bigger shower room with a spa.... More

Although the exterior looked a little run down, the rooms, view and location were excellent. Plenty of space in our room. We didn't try the restaurant as it is closed on a few nights. However, there are a few places to eat in the centre of town which is about 700 metres away

All my 85 year old mother wanted was a view of the ocean and boy did she get that. The rooms were lovely and clean and staff very helpful with her needs. It was right across the road from the beach. Unfortunately it was in the off season and windy so there was no swimming. Would definitely stay there again

This hotel is on the old side, but the rooms have been renovated, are clean and the view is awesome. Its close to everything. We would have loved to eat here too, but it was very busy in the restaurant, even off peak! Seems the food reviews must be right!

We were looking for a one night place midway between Flinders Chase and the ferry at Penneshaw, and this did the job nicely. Location was great. View was beautiful. Free continental breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choices. There was also an offer of waffles, which we declined, but I am sure would've been very nice. Restaurant wasn't open, which... More

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.
