The sea view from the room is really nice (although they should clean the windows), the bed is huge and comfortable, the room is big, the spa bath is awesome and the man at the reception was really nice. The breakfast is good but expensive. The whole stay was great though.

Thanks for the 'pretty awesome' review! I'm glad you enjoyed the room and all the facilities. The Spa in the Executive rooms is a great treat at the end of a hard day touring. We have had a bit of ocean wind lately and as a result a fair bit of sea spray has gotten on the windows but as... More

Easy hotel in a perfect position for beach access, a short stroll to the town of Kingscote, is peaceful and quiet and I enjoy waking to the sound of birds, but what really set it apart was the excellent staff and managers - local people willing and interested in answering all my queries about the Island and caring that I...

Large well appointed rooms with views of the ocean. Comfy beds and restaurant has great selection of well cooked meals. Wine selection consists of a lot of local KI wines. A 15min walk to township of Kingscote which has a supermarket. Wld like to suggest an extra mirror be placed somewhere outside the bathroom. Wld definitely stay here again.

Outstanding service, spacious and clean rooms, great location (near a beautiful little beach), and friendly staff....my stay here has been great. I arrived, and I was already registered with an assigned room. It took less than 5 min.

Had a 1 night stay in a corner executive spa room. View and balcony were really good, very nice to sit, relax and soak in the view. Room was clean and comfy. Place is in need of some maintenance, just little stuff that makes a big difference, especially in the bathroom. While it does need some money spent on it,... More

We stayed at the Seaside Inn for 3 nights and I must say my earlier worries of having a barely comfortable stay were entirely dismissed by the first night.

Our travel agent wanted to book us into Southern Ocean Lode- we are not spa people, we prefer activities, such as nature photography, to laying around and being pampered. So we picked the Seaside Inn due to its location, and boy am I pleased that we did. I firmly believe that the service we saw from Alex and Chris, the... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Staff were very welcoming and catered to all our requests. Room was more than large enough for our family of three, the beds were comfortable, spa bath an added extra and the meals were first class! What we loved were the views over the Yacht Club and Nepean Bay.
