After touring around KI for 4 days this was the perfect spot to have some down time for 2 days before heading home. We stayed in the garden villa and it was awesome. It was great to have a separate living area from the bedroom. It was quiet and very comfortable. Close walk to supermarket, hotel and 2 great cafe's...

My wife and I booked Kangaroo Island Seafront for 3 nights over Easter with our 1 year old daughter. As there aren't a lot of photos on their website I wasn't sure what to expect. We also had a discount using a wotif voucher and booked one of the one bedroom cabins. To be honest we were very happy with...

Just up the road from the Penneshaw Ferry terminal, this location is a great place to start your Kangaroo Island holiday. We stayed for 3 days and had arranged the accommodation over the phone and selected a package for a one bedroom Villa with breakfast and a $30 dinner voucher for the Penneshaw Hotel just up the road. The Villa...

My wife and I have just returned home from Kangaroo Island. We live in Sydney, and decided to drive to KI rather than fly. I fly for a living, so the drive was, for me, relaxation therapy. We booked ourselves and the car on the Sealink Ferry, and also packaged our first night accommodation on the island to save a...

Rooms need updating but were comfortable. Breakfast was ok but need to look elsewhere for any other meal. handy to the island ferry. We stayed 1 night whilst on a 2-day tour. If you do a tour make it more than 2 days as 2 days is not long enough and we got back to ferry at 7 pm for...

This is set in a little town. Very quiet. Nice breakfast and in walking distance to the hotel which serves great meals. Beautiful views of the ocean. The people are friendly also. This is a lovely place to visit and about 5 minutes walk to the ferry Terminal

We stayed at Seafront Hotel for a night following an evening ferry journey to Kangaroo island. The location is very convenient, just 5min from the ferry terminal. Just next to it, you will find Fish (which sells fish and chips) and the famous pizza joint. Both shops are open for dinner. Check-in at the hotel was a breeze. We stayed...

We stayed here four nights from 24th February to 28th February 2015. The hotel is in a fabulous location, we chose a seafront room and were not disappointed with this choice. The room was of a very good size and able to contain all our luggage without getting in the way. The room was spotlessly clean and cleaned every day....

I would have loved to visit this hotel, for which I paid and couldn't make it. We were scheduled to stay there for a night. Due to my lack of research about the sealink ferry service, it was a bit of disaster. We got to the Sealink ferry station around 2:30 PM in the afternoon, but were were told that...

It is within walking distance to the ferry so really convenient. Room is big and tidy. We didn't pick up rooms facing ocean but there is a balcony on the 2nd floor. Go out and the sea is in front of you. Full buffet breakfast included and that was good. We also really enjoyed the historic photos of this hotel...
