“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 2nights. We staying in an executive room in the new building. The room was very big, clean and tidy. Bathroom was large too again clean, with a powerful shower. Beds where comfortable, we had breakfast included which was ok, standard continental or cooked.
Would definitely stay here again if we every visited again.

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple

I upgrade our room to an executive ocean view in the new building, and i was very happy about that. The view was definetely spectacular.
The room was very nice and with jacuzzi, i think it was worth it the money.
The restaurant was very good, we eat there also on Xmas lunch and the event was great with good food.
Maybe they could improve the wi-fi, which it was free, only in the lobby..... But it nver worked for us.
Thank you for a nice stay :)

We are very pleased to read that you enjoyed your room and your dining experience when you stayed with us. In regard to your unpleasant experience with our Wi-Fi system we apologize for your inconvenience. We are having difficulties with our relay points with the Wi-Fi and because we operate on a remote island we have to wait for the serviceman to come and fix it. This will be done soon and things should return to normal after his visit. Thank you for your comments and we wish you our good travelling.

We stayed over a night, the location was good, clean although old, and very friendly staff.
They gave one of the poolside rooms before normal check in time.

The worst thing about there was the mattress which was awfull. They are cheap and possibly old, very uncomfortable and big NO for anyone with bad back. Also our bed was very noisy.

I believe they should invest a little more on the mattress as nice sleep can improve the quality of staying.

Another thing that I chose this hotel was its free wifi. forget about it, even in the lobby you would not be able to use it.

If you need a place to stay just in the middle of almost everywhere and you dont CARE about your sleep, maybe its a good place.

Stayed for one night. Friendly staff. Got a poolside room which was much bigger than expected. Room clean overall except strange setup with the shower. Only covered by curtain so the water splashes everywhere. The floor then becomes wet and dirty. Need to have a better design. Location in near water but not a true beach. Kingscote is the capital but very quiet and few restaurants.

KI offers Econ vacations and this hotel is one of the more modern. The rooms were clean and bathrooms good. The restaurant views are lovely of the bay and food great, my husband raved over the curry. It's a good place to stay if you have an early flight or arrive late as driving after dark there isn't recommended because of the nocturnal wildlife.

To start with the good things: very nice location directly at the ocean, really in the centre of Kingscote, very clean, easy parking.
Not so good: bed is very hard, staff medium-friendly, food average.
Very bad: Free Internet access. It simply doesnt work, websites all time-out. When you complain, they direct you to the payable Internet service on their stand-alone PC, which, surprise, surprise, works fast enough. Free Internet is a marketing lie. If you rely on Internet access, don't stay here.

We are sorry that your stay was inconvenienced by the poor internet service we have provided for you. For other readers please note that our internet relay monitor has been damaged in high winds and we lost one of our connecting telephone lines recently. As we operate our business on a remote location remedial work is always frustratingly slow. However we now have our second line connection up and going and we are promised that our relay point will be repaired by January 7, 2013.
Our apologies. Best wishes

Didn't know before we got there that there is no maid service and we had one of the apartment's which was on a second floor (nice view and spacious) but there was no elevator and almost no drawer space for clothes. Uncool not to know these things in advance. Otherwise, seems like just about the best place (very little to choose from) to stay on the Island (expect basic accomodations) - steps from the mini-Mayberry-type Main Street. And you have to come to Kangaroo Island for the animals and the views at the Cape, Rocks and Sea Lion beach - and suggest you hire a great guide in advance - makes all the difference in the world to see all the cool stuff there.

We are pleased to read that you seemed to have enjoyed your stay on our island. We are sorry to read that you had expected room service into your self-contained apartment. For other readers we do explain on our web site and our other marketing activities that these apartments are fully self contained. Further, daily service can be provided by the payment of a service fee.
Our best wishes for you continued travelling adventures.
