There are few options on KI but I don't think you can go wrong with the Kangaroo Island Seaside Inn given that you are in a relatively remote place. Our room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and we really appreciated the free Wi-Fi. We know there were guests next door but unless people are partying on their balconies, it... More

Was it worth $152 a night, no it wasn't. for that sort of money you would expect a pool or a games room or perhaps even a free breakfast but nope there was nothing. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. It was $17 for a continental breakfast which was served in a marquee, so we passed on that, too expensive... More

Over all it was okay, we were only there 1 night any longer though we would have an issue with the lack of privacy on the balcony it was a lovely sea view but with the lack of dividers means you are never alone watching the sunset. We had room 14 a double , it was ok , it could... More

Ten of us stayed over the busy KI Racing Weekend. Rooms are large and spotlessly clean...really comfortable beds. Free WiFi. Staff are friendly and helpful and there is also a great restaurant in house. Views over the ocean which is only 100 metres away. Parking is only a short distance from the room entry. 10 minute walk from the centre... More

Very nice stay at kangaroo Island Seaside Inn, very modern and clean and quiet with a very nice view over the water. Staff was very friendly and helpful and it was close to the town. The Inn has a restaurant attached to it.

The hotel was a reasonable price, but had no phone in the room, a funny smell and a bit dated. The dinners were quite good, but when I asked what it would cost to have a piece of toast and coffee for breakfast, I would have to pat the full cold buffet price of $17.

My mum and I stayed 2nights.We were both pleasantly surprised at the standard of the Inn. The room was spotlessly clean, spacious and had good facilities. Free wifi, TV, tea/coffee, iron and a great ensuite bathroom. A lovely seaview, ample parking and a very easy 10minute walk to the centre of Kingscote. The continental breakfast was fresh and had plenty... More

We stayed only one night but we were impressed with cleanliness, large room and very good WiFi. Views out to the sea were splendid and I think most (if not all) the rooms have this view. Very quiet location but close to restaurants.
