Convenient because it's close to the ferry. We had a 1Bdr Villa, it was clean and comfortable. The staff is really friendly ! As soon as we arrived, we spotted dolphins swimming right in front of the hotel. If you arrive late on the island or leave KI early, this is the place to be. We stayed 2 nights :... More

A lovely Hotel, right on the beach side with such a great view. Comfortable rom with a lot of facilities, just like a king dokken bed and some super fast internet connection. I've loved the staff's service, very kind and accurate.

Kind of old and a little raggedy. Comfy. Clean. Nice views. The restaurant was closed so we went down the street. The breakfast was included and a very nice surprise. Fresh eggs, good coffee. Really nice staff. The pool was not usable yet.

We stayed here for 2 nights in early November. Straight off the ferry, up the road and it's there on the left hand side. We were allocated a ground floor room which had spectacular sea views from the outside seating area. Lovely king size bed, sofa, dining table and tea and coffee making facilities with a mini bar if needed.... More

Hotel close to the ferry and clean and tidy looking from the outside, reception check in was friendly and efficient. We had sea view room (No: 9) and it was clean and comfy for two nights stay, your bed is made daily but nothing else was touched so the tea cups we used were just left, rubbish I left out... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom self contained villa, staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel does breakfast and the Pub has good meals. This place is close to the ferry. Penneshaw is a very quite place as is the rest of the Island. You definitely need a car or book the tours do your homework before your go.

We stayed in a sorrento double room and really enjoyed it. The room was spacious and clean with good quality wifi. The staff are also very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are excellent, with eggs cooked to order. There is also a good selection of cereal, pastries and, importantly, local produce such as the delicious kangaroo Island yogurt and honey....

If you want to find a place next the ferry, that it is. I recommend you accomodation only, and the breakfast in the cafe around corner will be make you more enjoy the trip in the island. Our rooms at behind ocean view rooms, it is a small village look like stay in the jungle, kids loves it.
