We stayed 2 nights in a comfortable and clean quad sharing room that had great views of the seafront. The inn keeper was very friendly and gave us good advice on touring the island. Kingscote is a good base if one plans to tour KI and the Seaside Inn is a good option to stay in Kingscote.

the inn is located in Kingscote which is one of the best options to stay in K.I. Rooms are large and have sea view. We were nicely welcome by the staff. The breakfast is good as well: in a nutshell, a nice stay to discover a wonderful island!

We had an overnight here, a short walk from central Kingscote. Room was spotless, great views (Room 12) and spacious. Alex cheerful and helpful, beyond the call of duty. Like the island, all laid back but high standards.
