It's about a 200m walk from the ferry terminal. If necessary I believe they will collect you. A pleasant enough room with a sea view, fridge, and free wifi, and a helpful reception. They don't do food any more, just breakfast, which was good. There is a small fish shop nearby which has a good reputation, and you can either have a picnic on the lawns opposite (mind the seagulls) or take it to your room. Otherwise the local pub looks a good bet - very busy with a lovely terrace overlooking the ocean. There are a couple of other small cafés as an alternative.
Just down the road is the penguin centre which offers short tours (one at 9.00 pm and one at 10.00 pm) at a small cost. The guide takes you down to the rocks where you can see the fairy penguins waddle out of the sea to feed their chicks. There are only a handful of penguins left, most have been taken by seals, but we were told the colony is recovering.
We liked Penneshaw, and the Seafront Hotel.
