We booked this place as it was offered at a discounted rate when we booked the ferry crossing. American River is about half an hour from Penneshaw where the ferry comes in. The owners were very helpful and food for breakfast and at night in restaurant was excellent. The area is quite pleasant for an early morning walk.

Booked online and found to be reasonably priced. Drove to the location and found we were in the middle of the boondocks! First glance was that of landing in someone's backyard! Accommodation was a bunch of units with a long verandah access but rooms were OK'ish? Absolutely nothing in American River, no pub, no nothing! Takeaway...what takeaway? Closed..forced to eat at the restaurant if you didn't bring food. Room was clean and comfortable, no HD on TV, bit basic. Alright stay if your into reading a book or Veging out! Would I stay here again, don't think so, Kingscote would be a better choice next time.

Stayed here a couple of nights while touring Kangaroo Island. Kim picked us up at the airport and gave us bit of a tour before we reached the hotel. The rooms are comfortable and breakfast was very good and prompt as we had to be ready for our tour guide. The sunrises from our balcony were so beautiful and the birds are right outside with morning birdsong. Kim and her husband are gracious hosts. Wish we had stayed longer.

Party of four booked for dinner. Small, comfortable and unpretentious dining facility with pleasant outlook. Good range of local Kangaroo Island wines which helps with the authenticity of the KI experience. Friendly locals and accommodation guests mingle. The selling point is the absolutely fabulous food! The presentation and flavours were superb and the price was inexpensive. Super value for money! A hidden little gem of a place......perhaps we shouldn't be writing it up, we'd hate to see the local touch and authenticity negatively impacted by too much demand! Would be back without thinking twice about it!

Stayed two nights at Wanderers Rest, and had a delightful stay. Kim is very friendly and helpful, and was doubling up as cook the two nights we ate in the dining room. Excellent food, both for the evening meal and the extensive continental breakfast which was included in the tariff. The rooms have a beautiful outlook across American River. I was travelling with a couple of friends who were given a room two doors up from mine. Both rooms were very comfortable. There were quite a few vacancies so it was nice and quiet, but I think if it was fully booked, the walls between units might prove to be thin.
