Perfect accomodation with a lovely view of the ocean. Located 5 min away from the centre of Kingscote. Very quiet, nice and confortable room. Very good breakfast.
Every room has a good sight of the bay in front of the Seaside Inn.

We spent a single night of our two-night stay on Kangaroo Island here. It was the perfect place to stay after getting into Kingscote on the evening flight from Adelaide before moving on to a hotel on the other side of KI the next day. The hotel is in a great location, just a two or three-minute drive from the main drag with restaurants and shops. We arrived later than the standard check-in time, but the hotel staff saw to it that our room keys were waiting for us and easily accessible. The hotel is clearly an older building, but the room was fresh and clean with a large, updated bathroom. The decor was perhaps not the most modern but the furniture (particularly the bed and two recliner chairs with footstools provided in lieu of a couch in the TV area) was very comfortable. It was nice having an empty fridge to be able to use at our disposal. There was a nice view of the ocean across the street. The young lady who facilitated our check-out the next day (I'm sorry I didn't take down her name; this was a Sunday morning) was very sweet and gave us some recommendations for what to do on the island. We did not try the breakfast as it looked like pretty standard fare and were more interested in trying out the local restaurants. Overall, though, this is a great place to stay on KI.

Hi MmeReverie,

Thank you very much for your detailed review. We really appreaciate your feedback and are glad to know you enjoyed your time on Kangaroo Island.

We hope you had a chance to try Cactus Cafe for breakfast if you did not dine with us as they are in the top 45 brunch places in Australia as of a couple of months ago.

All the best,

Michael

I enjoyed staying at the KI Seaside Inn as part of my Sealink KI tour with Shirley Tamm.
I should clearly state that the hotel is based on the old architecture design, however, the owner and manager had improved this place with modern comforts and outstanding hospitality. The room is spacious, have a wide glass wall that showcases the garden and sea view. Open the sliding door then you can enjoy the fresh sea air while having your cup of tea. Individual Reverse Cycler system in room, so you can change the room temperature to your liking. The Bed is extremely comfortable and I slept very well here because of the quietness and fresh sea air. The only thing I would suggest is to change the water tap to mixer instead of seperate hot and cold taps, this will save precious water, I think.

Most importantly, the foods were magnificent. As part of the tour, we had dinner here every night, the service, the attention paid to us by the manager Michael and his staff were phenomenal. I felt like I was at a high end restaurant because of the quality of the foods. The breakfast was good with fresh fruits included in the menu, a plus

Absolutely lovely place to stay! All rooms have a water view and are clean and comfortable. The manager Michael was accommodating and friendly every single day. Chef Jerome was fabulous.. the meals we had during our four days were absolutely incredible! Couldn’t stay at a better place. Will definitely come again.

Old but has been updated periodically. Bathroom needs an update. WIFI was not good. Check-in was friendly and we got a new room when we were not happy with the first room assigned as it had a strange noise coming from the fridge. The view of the ocean is amazing. Laundry facility is about 5 AUD and breakfast 18 AUD. The room is clean, there are a kettle and a fridge in the room. I found the pictures on hotels.com a bit deceiving and expected a lot more from this place.

Hi Olchju,

Thanks for your review. We do have four rooms that have been recently updated with new bathroms and they are in our superior category. Our apologies that the Wifi was not good, the Island itself has been having a lot of issues with internet speed but we are installing a sattelite option next week to combat the issue and supply high speed wireless to our guests once again.

We are glad you enjoyed the view and we look forward to welcoming you back next time.

All the best,

Michael

It was a good place to stay in Kingscote. The room is big and comfortable, it’s really worth every penny. The view is beautiful especially at night when the sky is clear and you can see the milky way! We truly loved our stay.
