“Adequate for a short stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

The Seaside Inn is clean, neat and tidy, and an entirely satisfactory motel if you're getting into Kingscote late and leaving early the next day. The restaurant serves pretty good food, although it's a little over-priced. Not a suitable choice for families for a stay of more than one night, though.

So easy to access, room didn't lock properly, it was no problem to change rooms. Had a three course meal in the restaurant which was yummy. Was in room 17, free wifi was awesome, forgot to tell owner that hair dryer in our room is dangerous as it was overheating every time. U might need to check this.

Stayed 2 nights and we were well satisfied. We enjoyed the breakfasts in the dining room, and were treated to wonderful meals in town. We had the pleasure of talking with the owners (father and son) and found both to be knowledgeable and helpful. Our stay was very smooth and enjoyable. Plus there is a nice beach right across the street from the inn for morning or evening walks.

A big room with a good q/s bed and a single bed plus a couple of lounge chairs. Adequate bathroom with a good supply of hot water. All rooms have a great view over the bay so the view is always picturesque. Multi channel cable tv and individual room air conditioners complete the picture.
The continental breakfast ,served in the dining room was comprehensive.

On arrival we were met by Alex who checked us in and then advised us on what and where to visit. He then arranged to have our departure time with Sealink extended by 4hrs saving us a rush trip from Flinders Chase on the morning of our departure.The room was comfortable with an ocean view minor hiccup was small shower & toilet. The restaurant was great and the chef had a menu with a great selection to choose from. Breakfast selection was more than adequate to start start the day. Thanks Alex and staff we will be back here when we visit KI again. Jan & Lindsay

I loved the personalized service and the excellent food for dinner; breakfast was a real treat with very good brewed coffee (the first and only I had on my trip). My room was very comfortable, and it was such a treat to have cold water in the refrigerator. Chris, the director/manager, cordially welcomed me and has created a very inviting place to stay. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating. Chris has done a great job.

Facilities were great. They cook a mean steak (Friday steak night).
Room was very comfortable with plenty of room to move.
Front of house service was excellent with staff being very polite.
Location has a great viwe of the bay with only a short walk to the main street.
