Arriving at the Hotel at about 3pm Coming von adelaide by Car and ferry ( 4.5 h) we asked for a light Snack. The receptionist stated: " lunch Time is over, but we will see what we can do for you" . This is not our understanding of hospitality.
All Reviews on Trip-advisor are right: great stunning uninterruptable ocean view, well organised Tourist-excursions , good cuisine e.t.c.!
You Feel like in a youth Hostel for Upper Class minors!
As you have no alternatives for anything you feel Not relaxed
Its a Feeling of Indoctrination in Sense of Eco-Style
No tv, no mobile, no usedul WLAN- web, no gym, no Outside dining enjoying lazy Summer Nights, no Sun shelter for the Outside-area having breakfast. Why dining in a airconditioned multifunctional room on a hot Summer Night?
Need Some workout? Take One of the so called MTB's and take a ugly Ride on the only Way You will find and feel happy to be overtaken by the hotel-Mini-Buses not taking care of all the dust you might swallow.
Thats why we observed the hotel guests leaving the hotel within 1to 3 days. So we shortened our stay. Certainly we were charged 100 procent.
No one asked why.
This is not a Place for a stay of more then 3 days.
Anyway: Kangaroo island is a nice Place to be seen.
