We have been to SOL 3 times. Once at Christmas 2008, June 2009 then May 2011. Quite simply, we just love it. Nothing is too much trouble. You can do as much as you want or as little as you desire. Many people wonder why we go back to the same place but it suits us perfectly. We have our own business to run in Queensland and we aren't able to take extended holidays so we seek quality over quantity and we can honestly say we haven't been disappointed at SOL. We've stayed in 3 different styles of suite and they have all been excellent - love the heated floor tiles.
In a funny Australian sort of way, everything seems to happen without a lot of fuss - there doesn't seem to be an uncomfortable display of "airs and graces". The lady that wore her slippers to breakfast probably typifies the easy-going nature of the resort. Maybe "laid back - six stars" would be a suitable comment.
We will be going back because there is so much more of Kangaroo Island to see and you wont find anything better than Southern Ocean Lodge.
