Great place, new structures, people very very nice and gentle. Rooms are large, very clean and great view: directly in front of sea. Breakfast is served in a large room with a panoramic view. What else to add? We had a good permanence here, I very suggest it!

My partner and I stayed at the Seafront for 1 night. Awesome view, room was very tidy and so convenient how it wasn't far from the Ferry terminal. Everything was just around the corner - food, gas, souvenir store and an awesome beach down the road! Great location.

Not much to pick from in this little town We chose it as a back. The rooms are clean and are ppresently building more Villas on sight The island has lots to offer and see. Eucalyptus Factory and a lavender Farm not to mention lots more to see.Well worth a look .

We chose this hotel because we were booked on a ferry that arrived late afternoon and after the many warnings not to drive at dusk due to the danger of hitting kangaroos the closest hotel to the ferry terminal seemed ideal. This was a really good choice. Welcoming staff. We had an upstairs room with an ocean view which was... More

There are few choices onKangaroo Island, so we wondered if we would like our accommodations. We were pleasantly surprised. We had a Garden Villa room...an interesting unit with full kitchen, sitting area, nice new bathroom...everything to suit us except only a queen bed. Breakfast was adequate, service and information at the front desk very helpful, and this is in a... More

Mine was a fleeting visit as part of a 2 day 1 night tour of the island with the SeaLink Ferry. Packed tons in and pretty quick - but as what I was on was (what one friend of mine best described as) a "long weekend in Australia" it suited me just fine. Kangaroo Island is a hell of a... More

A great choice to stay in Penneshaw. It is very close to where the ferry docks, and the best thing about it is the amazing ocean view. We stayed in a second-level Sorrento room, and this was a bit cheaper than the other ocean-front options because it didn't have its own balcony. However while we were there we had the... More

Good location, surrounded by the wilde green of the island. Independent solution in a little, well-mantained apartment. Situeted in a strategical position to take the ferry. Not too mutch choice for breakfast. Kind staff .

Had a lovely two nights stay in a seafront room. Very spacious and comfortable room. Lovely view over the sea from the room and balcony. On quiet street, only traffic was cars coming off the ferry but barely noticeable. Easy walk to local pub and several cafes as an alternative to hotel restaurant for breakfast. Great location for ferry access... More

My first observation is that the rooms are not in line with the general aspect of the hotel. We had a garden villa at the back of the hotel and it was very clean and reasonnably comfortable. We had a good night and the place was quiet. The hotel and its supposed facilities would however deserve a complete rejuvenation. The... More
