This is an old motel and looks it and not what you might expect from a Mercure. There is nothing else in American River and nothing much to see in American River but it is twenty minutes from the ferry and convenient point to stay. Despite the old feeling of the place and a tired look outside the room was... More

Hotel in great location opposite American River. Rooms were clean and tidy but hotel felt a little tired in parts for the money we had paid, particularly around the pool area. On our arrival day we sat by the pool which could do with some tlc. Several groups of locals pulled up in vehicles over the afternoon with swimming gear... More

Thank you for your feedback on your stay. Yes we do have a lovely location. Being a small village community we do allow locals to utilise the pool, under the understanding that they must be well behaved. If there was something you were not happy with from their behaviour, our friendly staff could have corrected this. If there is ever... More

We found this the perfect location for exploring Kangaroo Island. It is a 30 minute drive from the ferry, and allows easy access to any direction you want to explore. It also has full mobile coverage, and is near enough to amenities (like fuel, restaurants, supermarkets, and post offices) to make the stay even more comfortable. The area is very... More

Table and chairs on the balcony for a quiet glass of wine and overlooking the sea with beautiful bird life. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Had dinner in the restaurant which was very nice, it...

Firstly I love Kangaroo island so that is a plus, but so do the staff at this hotel, they are so positive, informative and helpful. Our hotel room faced the sea, every evening we sat outside our room and watched all of the birds, we had an evening fly past by the pelicans drifting on the thermals every evening, we... More

The reason I'm only giving 3 stars is based on the town itself not the lodge. American river is so boring! Nothing to do, one shop no where for dinner etc. Now to the hotel. The rooms were good, clean and tidy, beautiful location being surrounded by wildlife. Staff very friendly. We didn't eat dinner here but the menu because... More

We booked this hotel as part of a deal and having never been to Kangaroo Island before, we didn't really know where it was in relation to everything else. I will say that it is a bit isolated, however, if you have a car and you want peace and quiet, this is perfect! We had our 2 month old with... More

A lovely restaurant atmosphere and friendly staff. Quite expensive and a limited menu, however the food was enjoyable. Our expectations were slightly higher considering the prices, we had steak and lamb but were not offered steak knives and portions could been slightly larger. The cheese platter lacked some zing, although again nice, it was served on a dinner plate with... More

I am sorry your dining experience did not meet your expectation levels. However, I can inform you that we have since changed the menu, and prior to its launch we did a menu tasting night with about 16 people who provided feedback. And I can happily say the reviews have been amazing. Hope we can service you again one day... More
