The Inn is a nice place to stay. What makes it wonderful is the staff. We arrived on a late ferry into Pennshaw, and by the time we drove to Knigscote it was after 8:30. I didn't know this but the office was supposed to close at 6:30, but man at the front desk was open and waiting for my... More

We spent 3 nights here and loved the hotel. The room was nice and offered all we needed. The view from our room was very nice overlooking the bay. When booking if available choose the option with breakfast as it is a very nice and fresh continental breakfast. All in all we will go back to this hotel for sure!

We stayed at the Seaside Inn our first night on Kangaroo Island. It's located across the road from the ocean, so most rooms have nice views. The room itself was spacious---a queen bed with 2 single beds and plenty of room to move around. This arrangement was perfect for our family as our 2 boys had their own beds.... The... More

We spent 4 days on Kangaroo Island and everything there is wonderful...It would be a fantastic place to live out my days! The remarkable rocks are interesting and the caves amazing.

This motel is situated in a great location with excellent views. Room was spacious and clean. Bathroom not really suited for disabled. Staff very friendly and helpful when due to illness we had to stay another night and they really helped us with food to our room.

Thank you for your review. We do have one room with disabled bathroom facilities. I'm not sure why this room wasn't booked for you. There may have been some miscommunication from the agent at time of booking. If you ever planning on coming back to the Island, we hope to welcome you again. Regards, Lilian More

We stayed two nights at KI Seaside Inn as part of a bigger trip around South Australia. Anyone visiting Kangaroo Island needs to understand that it isn't awash with high quality hotels, but for motel-style accommodation the Seaside Inn was very good - a large, very comfortable room and excellent breakfast in the restaurant (not open for dinner on weeknights...

This is a great little but very personable place. It's situated in a very convenient location with an excellent view. We had a spacious room with a queen and a single bed. Walking distance to town. There is a lovely walk along the esplanade towards town, with very little effort. A big mention is the wonderful spread called the breakfast!... More

I liked this hotel. Not many choices in tiny Kingscote, but I am pleased with the Seaside Inn. Room 11 was large and well-furnished. The bed was comfortable and the linens new and clean.
