The island is quite large but most roads you need are sealed so traveling round is quite good. A visit to the Oyster farm is a must if you love Oysters. The Hotel was clean and comfortable, but a bit Faulty Towers. Shower in the room was dangerous as if someone turned on a tap in another room, the water...

We went during off season (august) and got a deal buy 3 nights get 1 free aswell as a 10% ferry discount. We stayed in the seafront room and the room was quiet spacious. Shower was not great however the bed was big and comfy. This hotel is walking distance from the ferry. The only downfall is that because penneshaw...

Abbiamo soggiornato al Seafront per 1 notte appena sbarcati a Kangaroo Island. La nostra stanza era ampia, pulita e con un cucinotto. Ottima posizione vicinissima al ferry. We stayed at Seafront just one night just arrived at Kangaroo Island. Our room was wide, clean and with an useful kitchenette. Good location close by the ferry.

We stayed one night at this hotel in late June after arriving via the last ferry. It was very close to the ferry landing, had adequate parking, and was easy to find. We were met by a nice gentleman upon arrival and shown to a room at the back of the hotel near the courtyard and pool. Our room was...

We took the late ferry to Kangaroo Island. As we didn't want to risk driving our rental car at night we decided it would be a good idea to spend the night in Penneshaw. There were few options so we selected the KI Seafront. Our room was out back and was adequate for our needs, however, the beds were not....

Clean and new villa in a fabulous location literally opposite the ocean. The only downside was that our villa couldn't receive wifi and the people at reception had left for the night. We did call the emergency number but they advised that they couldn't do anything so we were without wifi for the night.

We love the space in the 1 bed room villa. It comes with a living room with 2 sofa which can be converted to 2 double bed and a full kitchenette. The bath room is equally spacious. The checked in and out was fast and smooth. We arrived early and our villa is already ready. The villa is clean and...

The hotel was lovely, housekeeping was done daily and always fresh bedding and towels provided. The second night a tile from the bathroom ceiling appeared to be moved to one side, maybe due to maintenance but wasn't an issue at all. A good selection of restaurants and cafe's minute walk from the hotel, along with the beach. Penneshaw hotel served...
