We arrived on a hot day only to find that our room was stiflingly hot. The receptionist said the room would soon cool down and turned on the air conditioner. I happily collapsed on the bed only to find that the air con had started to make loud squealing noises. My husband and I tried changing fan speed etc to no avail as the noise would momentarily disappear and then the squeal would come back as loud as before. And it didn't seem to be cooling the room down a whole lot. I advised reception and they were fabulous. Showed us another room in a different part of hotel. The new room was very cool and didn't need any air conditioning at all, although I briefly tested the air con and it was 'noise free'. Very happy. Breakfasts here were great. Loved the pancakes. The pool was lovely. The location felt a bit remote but had a certain charm. The garden was lovely. Overall though I think this hotel needs a major revamp or just a spruce up.

Very conveniently located at American River to allow exploring KI!
Nice & friendly staff, average breakfast buffet for the category, but good quality restaurant for dinner [although quality varied depending on whether 'the chef' is there or not] - having a restaurant in the complexe is a big plus, a distances are substantial on KI so not needing to drive somehwhere for dinner is much appreciated!
Overall rating is 'good', average too low, very good too high!
Overall, rooms could probably get renovated, you see that things have been there for a while.

I'd stayed at this property maybe 30 years ago when it was full of moths and called called Linnets Island Lodge I think, and didn't have any massive expectations from a return visit, but instead, I was blown away. The property has been extensively but carefully redeveloped. Our spacious room had a gorgeous outlook over the lagoon and beyond, and with a massive immaculate dreamily comfortable bed, and tastefully soothing decor with original art works in the KI theme, more than fulfilled the description and photo on the hotel web site. Another excellent surprise was our dinner in the hotel restaurant crafted by their new German chef/genius Sabrina who will surely give this hotel a superb reputation for food as well as accomodation and ambience.

Thank you for your review. It is very pleasing to hear how much you enjoyed our property and noticing the changes we have been making is very encouraging. Sabrina our Chef is a delight to work with and is very passionate about Kangaroo Island produce. We are also mindful of how we promote our property, our belief is that the photos should truly represent the Hotel. Regards, Manager

We booked our trip at short notice when family came to visit, so not much research or choice given that it was the holiday season. However, it was fine. Can't quite see the four star rating, but it was comfortable and more than adequate. Had a great view of the American River estuary, and the location was convenient to whatever amenities American River had to offer. Getting up early one morning to see the sun come up and the bird life emerging was a bonus. We ate at their restaurant one night. Slightly odd booking system - we were stagedas there was only one cook and he had to meet demand. Staff were friendly and obliging. Renovations are foreshadowed for 2013. Quite a long history as holiday accommodation.

Room Tip: Ask for bay view.

Thank you for your review. The shore birds and wildlife in the immediate area is truly magnificent and we also have some of the best sunrises due to our easterly facing location. We are proud to announce extensive refurbishments and upgrades are underway. By Christmas 2013 we expect a true 4 star plus experience for all our guests. Regards, Manager
