I apologise for the late review, due to family committments. My wife and I are elderly and struggle with luggage up stairs. Shonnie actually carried all our bags up stairs for us.,She continued this wonderful service at dinner and at brekky. We were very impressed with her, she is an assett to the hotel, don't lose her.

The hotel was great, friendly staff, good breakfast each morning (a little pricey, but there's really nowhere else to eat other than the ferry terminal or food from the IGA grocery store). The rooms looked recently updated, bathrooms were nicely tiled and modern, beds were clean, good sizes, nice seating, and great views of the water in almost all rooms.... More

Very comfortable, clean and spacious . There is no elevator and the stairs are narrow so carrying large suitcases up to room is an effort. There are ground floor rooms available. Lovely ocean views. Ferry leaves from Penneshaw. It is a bit remote from a lot of attractions. The breakfasts are well prepared and fresh. Dining room is modern with... More

Clean, convenient, greeted by a genial host. WE stayed for two days. A short stroll to the pub where we enjoyed a number of good local product meals. Staff were friendly and helpful and offered advice on maximising our stay on KI. We went with friends who stayed in the cabins and who also reported a positive experience. 3 days... More

After touring around KI for 4 days this was the perfect spot to have some down time for 2 days before heading home. We stayed in the garden villa and it was awesome. It was great to have a separate living area from the bedroom. It was quiet and very comfortable. Close walk to supermarket, hotel and 2 great cafe's... More

My wife and I booked Kangaroo Island Seafront for 3 nights over Easter with our 1 year old daughter. As there aren't a lot of photos on their website I wasn't sure what to expect. We also had a discount using a wotif voucher and booked one of the one bedroom cabins. To be honest we were very happy with... More

Just up the road from the Penneshaw Ferry terminal, this location is a great place to start your Kangaroo Island holiday. We stayed for 3 days and had arranged the accommodation over the phone and selected a package for a one bedroom Villa with breakfast and a $30 dinner voucher for the Penneshaw Hotel just up the road. The Villa... More

My wife and I have just returned home from Kangaroo Island. We live in Sydney, and decided to drive to KI rather than fly. I fly for a living, so the drive was, for me, relaxation therapy. We booked ourselves and the car on the Sealink Ferry, and also packaged our first night accommodation on the island to save a... More

Rooms need updating but were comfortable. Breakfast was ok but need to look elsewhere for any other meal. handy to the island ferry. We stayed 1 night whilst on a 2-day tour. If you do a tour make it more than 2 days as 2 days is not long enough and we got back to ferry at 7 pm for... More

This is set in a little town. Very quiet. Nice breakfast and in walking distance to the hotel which serves great meals. Beautiful views of the ocean. The people are friendly also. This is a lovely place to visit and about 5 minutes walk to the ferry Terminal
