The room was large and good. The heating of the bathroom was via infra-red light and it was very satisfactory. They did not have a room available for two adults and two children, so we needed to split. Our rooms had a very nice view over the Great Ocean.

I stayed in the Seafront for business. The hotel is clean, the staff friendly and helpful and the location pretty much perfect if, like me, you need to get the 7.30am ferry and want to squeeze as much sleep in as possible. On the recommendation of staff, I chose to stay in one of the newer villas at the rear... More

This hotel is fine if you are coming from cape Jarvis in the evening since it is 100 m far from the quay. Except for that it is nothing special: rooms are simply furnished but functional. The breakfast, not included in our reservation is a bit expensive and we preferred to go in a cafe in Kingscote.

Stayed two nights, first and last on the island. Originally mucked up the booking and they were very accommodating on adjusting it with no penalty. We were late booking in, but the staff had waited and assisted us as required. They also assisted us with the ferry booking and saved us 10%. Room was very comfortable, although the positioning of...

We opted for the Sealink ferry/logding package deal and were disappointed with the substandard Seafront. The carpet smelled, the sink was cracked, the small pool was filthy, the doors stuck and the breakfast options were lacking. On the positive side, the hotel was close to the ferry landing, had an ocean view (although it was across the main road and... More

Stayed here 3 nights and it was great. The villas are set in a beautiful garden, very private and quiet. The staff went out of their way to meet my husbands dietary needs. Corinne ( spelling???) was so amazingly friendly & helpful, she was so busy, and nothing was too much trouble Rooms need to have safes installed, it's what... More

Coming from Singapore, this was a great Day Trip we chose! On arrival at the ferry terminal, it was a bus all the way: wild seals to a lovely semi-buffet farm lunch, koala park to 2 more scenic spots by the ocean and finally back to the ferry. Again, as weather was lovely and coming from an urban city, such... More

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
