I recently dined at seaside inn, the meal and service were fantastic. My family and friends went for the steak night, but as some don't eat steak the usual menu is was available, some places don't allow this. The dessert menu is also not to be missed. The chocolate mousse was to die for. I would recommend anyone if they... More

Our first walk into the room seemed very scenic, and the location across the road from a shallow, good for kids beach was great.( However, the beach has a large amount of shells!) we stayed for two nights, and so after the first night, we were not interested in the view at all.

Thank you for the review. We have lived on the island for more than 20 years and are yet to grow tired of the fantastic ocean views of the bay. KI is not only about views but also about the unique natural environment and abundance of wildlife. The Kangaroo Island Seaside Inn is ideally located for touring the island and... More

Easy to find, ample parking. Room was simple, no frills, spacious, adequate size for 2 adults and very clean. Sea view from rooms ideal. Windows with mosquito nets. Breakfast room was bright, garden tables available and buffet good. Owner on site and very helpful. Plain, simple, no luxury but good value for money.

Seaside Inn is a great motel with perfect views over the ocean. The rooms are very spacious and also have balconies looking out over the ocean. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone who wants to enjoy all that Kangaroo Island has to offer.

Neat & tidy, but could do with some renovations. The views of the ocean are amazing, however the outdoor seating area provided doesn't do it justice. A revamp to the courtyard that is shared by all lower rooms would really improve the experience of sitting outside your room taking in the view at the end of a big day of... More

Seaside Inn, is a great location from the centre of Kingscote & the beach. The room was very clean and neat. Alex was more than helpful allowing us to freeze our catch of fish from a fishing trip. Breakfast had lots to choose from & the restaurant was pleasant. My husband & I will be back when we're on the... More

Mr. Schuman was very helpful with everything we needed, took care of the car rental and restaurant booking and the overall stay, though short, was a very pleasant one. Good breakfast and the room was neat and had everything we needed. Thank you!

Hi Maria, I'm glad I was able to make your stay more enjoyable. We often have people that need help organising how they will see the island and its my job to try and offer some local knowledge and make sure that happens. It's great that you liked our rooms and breakfast along with the service. Hope to see you... More

The room that we got (no.10) was spacious and had a nice seaside view. Nice and efficient staff (Emily was very kind and exhaustive, thanks!). The furniture would need been refreshed a bit, the bathroom in particular.

Overall good experience. Large clean rooms. Good location walking distance into kingscote village centre. Nice sea view from the room & balcony. A little expensive for a single nights stay, but no complaints.

We stayed only one night while on a coach trip. It was spacious and comfortable. The nearest restaurant was approximately 2 kms away which would have been great during summer and daylight. But we still enjoyed the stroll to town in the dark and brisk evening weather. The continental breakfast was nice. The place was clean and tidy. I would... More
