great location but that's about it, the tiny room was a bit shabby with missing tiles on a wall; dirty wine glass in the cabinet; hair dryer was not working and a bath towel had a spot on it. The place would definitely benefit from a renovation. Ok for one night stay with an ocean view from your balcony

This place is a short walk from the ferry terminal in Penneshaw, and hence, it is a perfect place for your first and last night on the island. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was excellent value. The rooms were spacious and clean.

Lovely historical small hotel in Penneshaw with supreme and quiet location, clean and nice small cottages and good choices for breakfast. All the forniture and a comfortable bed are what you ask to complete your visit at Kangaroo Island...I'll suggest this hotel to all my friends.

We stayed in April 2014 during our one night stay on K island. We booked a package with the hotel which included penguins at night tour. Room was spacious, clean, modern and a great sea view. Dinner at the local pub was included and served very good home cooked food. Basic breakfast before we headed out for our day tour... More

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.

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
