“Well situated for a stay on the Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Although this is not a fancy hotel, the rooms are large, beds comfortable and the service was terrific. Breakfast was good. Restaurant seemed busy in the evening. We did not eat there for dinner so no opinion on dinner. We needed some help with the in room safe and the desk clerk came up twice in a timely manner and was very helpful. She also provided us with an adapter. Easy walk to children parl and the peer where the pelicans get fed every evening. Free wifi in lobby was a plus. Overall nice place to stay

Dear Computermana,

Thank you for your comments regarding our rooms and our service. Our team members are always willing to assist our guests with any issues and resolve these as quickly as possible. The children's park and daily pelican feeding are just one of the many attraction very close to the Ozone Hotel. Free WIFI is a bonus for all our hotel guests.

regards,

GM

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

This hotel was part of our package (tour with kangaroo Island Odysseys, via trailfinders).

We paid extra (via original Trailfinders booking) to have higher level of accommodation, I believe it was described as "luxury". But the accommodation was exceptionally basic. And if the rooms are supposed to be newly refurbished, I'm not sure what decade the decorators stepped out of. Yes the room was large (2 double beds) but it looked dated and worse still our bathroom smelled awful. Like rotting veg.

To their credit, the hotel allowed us to move rooms... To an identical one next door, but they did it begrudgingly and made a show of standing in the smelly bathroom and sniffing it!

Dinner was decent though. I guess there is not a lot of choice in kingscote but if you can stay somewhere else, then do!

This Hotel was our stay at the end of our Kangaroo Island journey.... we had stayed in cabins the rest of the way around the Island. It was so comfortable... large king size beds... great air conditioning. The service was great. Didnt realise that the accommodation section was separate to the main part of the hotel... just across the road. This was not a problem. Breakfast and dinner was wonderful as was the service. We will be back!!

Dear Cathy L Thank you for taking the time to respond to your recent stay at the Ozone Hotel on Kangaroo Island. We are very pleased you enjoyed your time on the Island and at the Ozone Hotel. Yes we do have two separate accommodation sections, One in the original Hotel building and the Apartments across the road. Both are located close to the ocean. We are happy you enjoyed your dining for both Breakfast and Dinner. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Interesting hotel (one of the few hotels usually considered by travel agencies, and one of the few hotels on the island I'd say). We had a sea front room on the ground floor, maybe too close to the road but traffic there is almost nil, very large and equipped with all the comforts (ironing board, tea making facilities, safe etc.). The bathroom was large and nice too. We had also an interesting dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The people at the front desk was especially brisk but friendly enough. There is also a pool but we didn't use it,

I made this booking as part of a trip to celebrate my wife's birthday. Shortly afterwards she broke her ankle. We were still able to have our holiday, but were reliant on crutches and a wheelchair. They were extremely helpful and happily changed our room to one with easy access. We had a great meal in the restaurant. The location is excellent.
