“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Chose this property as part of a tour of Kangaroo island for my parents visiting from Europe. They absolutely loved the personal and friendly welcome from the owner (plus little canine friend Heidi). A very quirky and beautiful hotel with an outstanding breakfast. Well recommended

We stayed at Seaview Lodge on our final night on Kangaroo Island and loved it. The property is a wonderful old stone house, excellently refurbished, set on a hill with views to the shore. Barbara and Heidi (a beautiful border collie with a lovely nature) were on hand to welcome us, full of information, but happy to let us settle in and relax. We stayed in the Rose room (having chosen the room from the house layout online) with a four poster bed & period furnishing, but modern en suite. The house is slightly out of town, but no more than a 10 minute walk to many restaurants & shops, as well as the ferry terminal.
The breakfast Barbara served was sensational, with local produce (yoghurt, honey, homemade stewed fruit) as well as full cooked breakfast. She even had gluten free toast, despite the fact that we hadn't requested this!
The room and house were spotlessly clean, and the guest lounge (which we had to ourselves) was well supplied with books, games, a TV, hot drink paraphernalia, even a photo album showing the changes the house has been through in the past 2 decades.
I would love to spend a few more nights with Barbara at the Seaview Lodge next time we visit Kangaroo Island!

Lovely breakfast and rustic looking rooms. She had really lovely garden, sadly I didnt had the time to admire the whole house. Didnt really spend much time there as I was out exploring the island. Cute friendly dog

Stayed December 2011, traveled with friends
