Room is v clean with great seaview. Staff are helpful and friendly. No common kitchen. It will be good if breakfast is complimentary. Overall a good experience. Will definitely stay here if we are back to visit KI!

In March 2015 we spent two days sightseeing on Kangeroo Island. Our accommodation's while on the island were at the Seaside Inn in Kingscote. Kingscote is the largest village on the island. 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.

We booked the executive spa room for the night of our wedding. My husband is an ex local, and we were told that this place was okay, as there was no other available rooms closer to our other group accommodation. We arrived in very late after our wedding, and were a little bit surprised at how outdated everything was. We... More

We stayed three nights here in Room 19 which has a very comfortable king size bed and two single beds. The room is huge and also had a coffee table and two comfy chairs. Very enjoyable to sit looking out through the big sliding door to the balcony, to the yacht club and ocean just across the road.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to register a review. We are very glad you found the staff helpful, we pride ourselves on customer service. In regard to the mixer basins we are looking into getting them changed over, however it is not an easy process. Thank you for pointing out that we don’t have many vegetarian options available...
