We were pleasantly surprised by our stay here. When you first pull up the place looks a little dated. We stayed in the villas in the back - which were nice! I'd recommend them if you have the choice. They were pretty updated to us. What really stood out was our service! I wish I could remember the young ladies...

Stayed two nights whilst exploring KI. First impressions on arrival was that the place looked a bit dated but we were given a chalet in the grounds at the back which was very comfortable and surprisingly modern inside. The bed was comfortable and we had free WIFI and free coffee/tea and biscuits (although make sure you wash up and put...

We stayed one night at this hotel when we arrived in Kangaroo Island, from the ferry: it is conveniently close to the ferry terminal, some restaurants, cafes and supermarkets (convenient before moving inside the island as supply is scarce, be careful, it is closing at 8pm), and the penguin centre (don't miss the small walk at the front to spot...

Stayed one night with a friend. Even though it was just the two of us we stayed at the back in a villa. The room was spacious and clean. It's only a 2 minute drive to the ferry so that's always a plus. However if you wish to explore kangaroo island more I would recommend staying somewhere in the middle...

We were booked into the Seafront as a part of a package, so it wasn't our choice. However, we did get good sleep and the included breakfast was fantastic. Nice view over the sea was a good bonus. On the downside, a lack of a restaurant for dinner limited our choice for an evening meal at the local pub. The...

We had a Sorrento's Room upstairs with beautiful views across the water to the mainland. Stairs where a bit steep and narrow to carry our bags up but once there the room was very nice and clean with plenty of room and nice ensuite. Included a nice buffet breakfast. Not a lot of choices but still good and they cooked...

Stayed one night. The one bedroom villa is large enough for 4 people Has a fully equipped kitchen, but it does need better cleaning. The water kettle and cups need to be replaced or deep clean. No view from the villa as it is located in the garden area, but it is ok. Wifi is weak in the villa, but...

We had a double room with a ground floor balcony, sea across the road but wide views, only a few hundred yards from ferry point. Clean, comfortable and friendly with breakfast choices in morning at varying prices, but the cereal, fruit and coffee very adequate and cheap. Not handy though for main tourist spots as a long was to main...
