“Great way to experience KI in limited time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

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 of the island with KI Discovery tours.

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.

Not much to pick from in this little town We chose it as a back. The rooms are clean and are ppresently building more Villas on sight The island has lots to offer and see. Eucalyptus Factory and a lavender Farm not to mention lots more to see.Well worth a look .

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 lovely but there is no lift and heaving suitcases up the stairs was a burden. If you are travelling with a lot of luggage ask for a downstairs room. The hotel incorporates an historic building and there is an interesting photographic display about it near the breakfast room. The rooms are well equipped. Good breakfast, although slightly pricey for what is on offer. It you need to remember this is an island and prices will be higher than the mainland. They are doing extensive building works and the swimming pool was not in use so check this out if having this facility is important to you. Really enjoyed our time here.

Room Tip: Downstairs rooms if you have a lot of luggage or have limited mobility.

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 good location. Had dinner at the Penneshaw, and that was good as well. Definitely would recommend.

Room Tip: If you want an ocean view, do not select the garden villa. But garden rooms have kitchen and sittin...

Mine was a fleeting visit as part of a 2 day 1 night tour of the island with the SeaLink Ferry.
Packed tons in and pretty quick - but as what I was on was (what one friend of mine best described as) a "long weekend in Australia" it suited me just fine.
Kangaroo Island is a hell of a place to visit, in fact do not come to this area and miss it you would be missing out - big time!
The Seafront is a good standard hotel with large modern rooms all the things I needed after long days seeing and doing in the southern hemisphere.
I was there in spring so seriously random weather (32 degrees one day to 17 the next). The lady on reception assured us she had put the heating on ready - nice and toasty!
Breakfast was a treat!! All you would need, plenty of coffee and to top it all - Dolphins doing their "dolphiny" thing in the bay - Excellent!
Thank you Seafront!!

Room Tip: Sea view, sea view, sea view - first floor if you can, but either ok
