We stayed 2 nights and had a super time. Owners were great and welcoming. Food good standard and nicely presented. Mein Host was great fun and very helpful. Great location, near the ferry and town. Rooms very clean and well serviced. Older design (US motel style).

We spent three nights here and enjoyed our breakfasts and dinners very much. We did not mind the limited menu because the shrimp curry was so good we each ordered it twice. Chris and Ros were extremely hospitable and helpful in every way. The amenities in the rooms were excellent, even if the decor was a bit dark. The view... More

My hubby & I stayed with Chris & Ros from 3 - 6 Feb 14 & had a great time with the elderly couple. We reached their place around 7pm, after a rough ferry ride & shuttle service. The friendly couple walked us round the place ~ which has a living room for guests to mingle & surf web, a... More

Rooms in the hotel are spacious, comfortable and very clean. On top of this they have fantastic views with balconies. Rooms are in the grounds, but it is only a very short walk to the hotel’s restaurant. American River is very quiet, and not commercialised. You can view plenty of wild birds there. We ate all but one of our... More

Chris and Roz welcomed us to their 4 star country guest house with a warm handshake and welcoming smile. We enjoy an uncrowded, clean and comfortable stay with just the right balance between privacy and personal attention. The evening meals were delicious with a variety from which to chose and a wine to accompany the meal. The bacon and eggs... More

We stayed 4 nights at 240 dollars a night for a middle of the market motel room. Had we wanted breakfast it would have risen to 300 dollars per night for a double room. Our Booking confirmation gave 30 dollars per person per night for breakfast. The accommodation is in a standard pre-fabricated eight room motel unit of some vintage.... More

View of the Bay from our room was beautiful, dinner and breakfast were delicious and Ros and Chris were most gracious. We stayed one night and it was most pleasant. The room was simply furnished with a small bathroom and shower.

Thank you for your comments, Kangaroo Island does need more than one night to enjoy completely, but I guess you can always come again More

As many have said, the owners are fantastic. Ros and Chris were both very welcoming and helpful with suggestions of places we might go throughout our stay, and also very good humoured and pleasant. The accomodation is good; air conditioning and heating both were briefly used whilst we stayed (the weather can be like that!) and worked well. The room... More

This was the upgrade to "deluxe" rooms on our tour. The rooms here are just like you remember from the 1960's. Small, wood paneling. Quant, one might say. They do have ac/heat both of which you may need. The veranda in our room looked over the bay and there were birds. Very nice. The owner came to greet us, took... More

We stayed only one night on our way to Flinders Chase, but found the service and accommodations pleasant and comfortable. This is not a luxury resort by any means, but that is not why we went to Kangaroo Island. Our hosts, Ros and Chris, were friendly and cooked up a storm for breakfast. They even hoisted an American flag for... More
