Hubby and I were so impressed with the lovely woman who was so kind to us, so sorry I did not write down her name! She greeted us upon arrival, called the guide and arranged for us to have a nocturnal tour that night to see the kangaroos and fairy penguins, was at the desk again early the next morning...

We stayed in a sea view room which had balcony and was of reasonable size. In regard to the bathroom the shower cubicle was a bit on the small side. In regard to accommodation at American River this is the best by far. The restaurant was great with good staff, a variety of beverages and great food.

The Hotel is very good close to the shore, easy accessible after the ferry ride. Have a nice Saltwater Pool. Rooms are good, well the could have some renovation in future. In our first room we had a problem with Water Tap but management reacted promptly and gave us a new room. A very nice surprise was the restaurant. We...

American River is a quiet small fishing village and it is surprising to find a Mercure hotel in such a location. American River does not have the commercial amenities like Kingscote but we thought the area was more consistent with the natural Kangaroo Island reputation. There are plenty of activities to enjoy, including nature trails and the birds in the...

We spent three nights in American River over the new year. The Mercure was very well presented and the food was again of high standard. The Staff were bright, enthusiastic and helpful with a couple of awkward issues re accommodation changes. The room was very well appointed and we had a wonderful stay.

Lovely hotel with spacious room and lovely new bathroom. Food is good but restaurant is pretty expensive - would be hard to feed to whole family here continuously. Right on the waterfront - a short walk to lovely bush walks, waterfront walks or head down to the wharf. Is located on the north east end of the island so allow...

American River is a peaceful, sleepy fishermen township in a natural setting. Bushwalking, bird watching and fishing, even kayaking are activities to do around here. Make sure you catch the beautiful sunrise - we loved it. The lodge is located about 30min from the ferry in Penneshaw and about 30min from the airport in Kingscote. The rooms are clean and...

We have recently spent 3 days here and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly, knowledgeable staff and we found this to be the norm here. The staff are fabulous. Nothing is ever a problem for them and also willing to assist. We were fortunate to be placed in room 16. This is...

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this hotel in American River for 3 nights over the new year period. We had one of the waterview rooms in a building of rammed earth walls giving it a rustic feel. The room was spacious and clean with a comfy bed and had lovely water views. It also has a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kangaroo Island, one of Australia's great wilderness destinations, is best known for its magnificent coastal views, unique landscapes, uncrowded beaches and fascinating wildlife, including kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, Australian sea-lions, New Zealand fur seals and Little penguins. Kangaroo Island is a place of natural beauty and a place to escape. Kangaroo Island Lodge is situated on the banks of Eastern Cove in American River, with all rooms perfectly perched offering exceptional water views over the bay. Amid lush coastal vegetation, Kangaroo Island Lodge blends in with its natural surroundings. There is no better place to unwind and to enjoy the peace and tranquility. The seclusion of this area allows for the abundance of wildlife to roam free. Tammar wallabies, brush tailed possums, black swans, Cape Barren geese, Australian pelicans and the rare and endangered glossy black cockatoos can all be found in here. The outer bay of Eastern Cove offers excellent sailing and fishing in protected waters. The Kangaroo Island oyster industry is also located in American River, with the Oyster Shed located just down the road from the Kangaroo Island Lodge. If you are a keen walker, there are two main walking tracks, the Independence Trail and the Fish Cannery walk. Both walks meander through the natural coastal scrub where numerous species of wildlife and birdlife can be seen. So why not come and escape to the Kangaroo Island Lodge? ... more   less
