We enjoyed Chris and Ros' hospitality for three nights in September. The rooms at Wanderers' all have a view down to the water filtered through the tree tops, the early morning and evening light is beautiful and the silence ( apart from bird song) is relaxing. The rooms are well appointed, a comfortable bed, flat screen TV table and chairs... More

The Wanders' Rest affords great viewing of the endangered Glossy Black Cockatoos at treetop level. Ros and Chris are wonderful hosts, attending to every need, and preparing delicious, simple meals accompanied by excellent local wines. The rooms are cozy and private, with balconies that overlook the American River and offer good birding. Overall, a great place to stay while touring... More

The room was immaculate and the view from our balcony was beautiful. The room also had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. Chris and Ros were extremely welcoming and went out of...

Ros and Chris were so wonderful and kind. Both nights they seated me with another single traveler for dinner which was so thoughtful of them and I had a lovely time. The rooms were spectacular with an amazing view of the American River. The food at the B&B each evening was flavorful and tasty. All was reasonably priced as well.... More

My parents visiting from the UK and my partner and I spent 3 nights at this hotel at the start of 2010. The rooms were clean and neat, and offered everything you would need, including a strong hot shower. The owners were incredibly hospitable and the food in the restaurant was of exceptional quality.

Chris and Ros (current owners) were fantastic, providing outstanding service and consideration. Fantastic food! Dinners were superb, with a strong emphasis on extremely fresh, local KI ingredients. Nice views of American River//Eastern Cove, with scenic and wildlife walks. Large, comfortable room with deck.

While my mother and I only stayed one night, it made an impression on us that will last forever. The owners were extremely friendly and wanting to help in anyway possible. The food was outstanding.

We loved this place! Chris and Ros were delightful, helpful in everyway. The breakfasts and dinners were DELICIOUS. Unlike the other small inns in Australia that we stayed at during our trip, Ros was willing to cook up a hot breakfast. The cold breakfast offerings included sheep's milk cheese and sheep's milk yogurt with honey (all of the yogurt, cheese... More

This little gem of a B&B shouldn't be missed, The owners make for an informed and enjoyable stay. Kangaroo Island itself is just an amazingly unspoiled place and shouldn't be missed. After a day of "wandering" this is the place to stay )
