We stayed in "water View" suites which had a magnificent view of the water and beach. Stroll over the road to a lovely beach - empty except for pelicans and bird life. The restaurant here is very good - both for dinner and for a very good breakfast - cooked or continental. My room had a noisy fridge - compressor... More

We spent two nights. The room was spacious, with water view. King bed, porch, kitchenette, desk, several comfortable chairs. Free wifi. Bathroom clean and water pressure good. Dinners excellent, beautifully presented. Our party had scallops, whiting, beet salad, oysters, all very good. Ice cream with espresso and liqueur especially good. Breakfast had nice buffet selection, nothing special. Filtered coffee good.... More

My Wife and I stayed here as part of our 'no-kids-get-away', and we LOVED it! Large room, great kitchenette (with Microwave!), great bathroom, great bed and great views!

Firstly I will say the lovely ladies on the front desk were friendly and helpful. The room was nice but the aircon sounded like there was a helicopter over head, it was so noisy.

When you come to kangaroo island one of the things you are looking for is stunning views, the waterview rooms here definitely have that! There is also an amazing feeling of being somewhere extremely special and remote.

This property is way overpriced for what it is. The staff seem nice but they did not help us at all. They set our room up and charged us for a 3 person room when there was only 2 of us then gave us no compensation or showed any regard at all. The restaurant is no better. We paid $80... More

My daughter and I had a 3 night getaway here. The beds were clean and comfortable. The bar fridge kept everything really cold. The bathroom is very tiny and the shower randomly changes from scalding to freezing. Makes taking a shower a lot longer than it should.

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. The 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, the 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
