We were able enjoy the views from the balcony during the day and the moonlight nights! The room was spacious and well appointed. The nearby hotel provided us with hearty meals in the evenings. All of the Staff were very friendly and helpful. We will be pleased to stay there in the future. Charlie and Barb from WA

We stayed two nights in Garden Villa 20 which is closest to the pool. We loved our tropical little cabin and the extra space the villa afforded. We did have trouble with the air conditioning not working reliably, but after giving it a firm smack it would usually start up again. The screen doors were great for letting in fresh... More

We stayed a night at the Penneshaw hotel and were very pleasantly surprised. Just up the hill from the Sealink Ferry Terminal, the view from our room, overlooking the water, was just beautiful. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom, while not glamorous, was very functional. Staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. We appreciated being in a small... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a garden villa. When we came our room was filled with mosquitos. The fan in the bathroom was extremly noisy. It was advertised to have a spa, but when we asked reception she said no, like we would be stupid to even ask. The tennis court that was also advertised was half a... More

We stayed 2 nights in this motel. The good points - our room faces the ocean and the motel is up the room from the ferry terminal. The bad points far outweigh the good - the air conditioning did not cool the room and it was so loud we had to turn it off. We tried the ceiling fan but... More

Tidy, secure, and breakfast included. Comfy stay with a great location, and kids love the swimming pool. Overall a great place to spend the night in Penneshaw. I look forward to staying here again next time I visit KI.

We staid over new year, the rooms were clean, comfortable and with good amenities, nothing fancy but it's just what we needed. We even lingered in the hotel rooms emoting because of heavy rain and it was all good, even lots of channels on the TV. Breakfast was also nice, not a great choose, but everything was good, particularly the... More

It's about a 200m walk from the ferry terminal. If necessary I believe they will collect you. A pleasant enough room with a sea view, fridge, and free wifi, and a helpful reception. They don't do food any more, just breakfast, which was good. There is a small fish shop nearby which has a good reputation, and you can either... More

Our fave hotel so far on this trip. It is great to see a hotel furnished and decorated with taste. Bedding beautiful. Lovely tropical gardens. It is not opposite ferry like some reviews say but maybe 100 m up the road and you can't see the terminal, only the boats going back and forth. Staff so friendly and will organise... More
