KI seafront has comfortable accommodation. My room was clean and well presented and had all I needed. I was fortunate enough to get a sea view room. Breakfast was part of my deal and was more than adequate. The person in charge of breakfasts was very accommodating, friendly and I wish I could remember her name. Thank you. Just to...

As we were due to arrive on Kangaroo Island early evening we didn't want to drive in the dark so we pre-booked this hotel for one night. Thank goodness we only stayed one night, it was very basic and rundown and expensive for what it was. The bed wasn't too bad but being very tired we slept well. Breakfast was...

Stayed here for one night cause we had to catch the ferry in the morning. Ferry is just one minute away. We had the one dorm appartement in the back just next to the swimming pool. Unfortunately it was still september and to cold to have a jump into it. The appartement was very new and stylish. You have a...

My boyfriend and I spent one night here before getting the ferry back to the main land the following morning. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of our room, and loved the fact we had a little dining table and sofa to relax on. The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was modern and clean apart from 2...

The receptionist was very helpful and the room was adequate, but I could not recommend the breakfast. It is a handy place to stop if you need a hotel close to the ferry, but there are better options on the island.

We drove in Penneshaw really late, just to find a courteous host ready to take us to our room. We had a one bedroom villa in the back of the hotel. The 'villa' was a brand new apartment, large,with modern decoration, wooden floors, large and elegant bathroom with a great shower. The boys slept in the rollaways which were queen...

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.

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.
