We found the restaurant in the motel to be the best eating place in Kangaroo Island. Definitely the best value fore money we found. The staff were attentive and polite. The manager/owner was full of knowledge and gave sensational advise. I was advised to have the prawn laska and wouldn't believe it was the best I have ever tasted (and...

We stayed here for 3 days whilst travelling around Oz, all I can say is that this little place is a Gem. None of the flash and brash here, its a really genuine place, fantastic food and good views, We had a room on the front so we were lucky to have great views of the sea. Well worth staying...

KISI is very good value. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms are quite basic but extremely well kept, for example, clean towels were provided without request. Recommended without reservation.

Was booked here by Travel Company for overnight stop with continental breakfast.

All we had to do was get the receptionist there to call and arrange our return. We all...

The rooms are fairly basic but clean .We asked for an up grade but none was available for the first night , no mention of the following night. The gardens were sparse but the view from the room was great.Cheap accommodation .I suggest staying closer to town would have been better unless you were travelling for a beach holiday

Thanks Joanne for giving us your review. We pride ourselves on offering clean and comfortable accommodation, with great ocean views, at an affordable rate.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a superior king bed room. Very comfortable chairs with footstools and excellent bed. We would have preferred a ceiling light because the room was dark in the evening with only wall lights. The bathroom was modern with a good shower. The location adds to the holiday experience with lovely views of the sea....

Thanks for the great review Chris. It sounds like you stayed in one of our Superior Rooms and enjoyed everything the room offered. The bathrooms were recently renovated and the views are always a hit. Great tip on the upper floor with the easy access ramp. Hope we get to see you on Kangaroo Island again soon. Regards, Alex

No frills but comfortable inn across the road from the beach and a short walk along the path into town. Alex and his Dad made us very welcome and were very helpful. We only spent 2 nights here, wished it was longer. Lovely continental breakfast available for $15

We stayed four nights at this motel that overlooks the sea at Kingscote. We chose a larger king bed room; all rooms look out over the water. The room was adequate but felt a bit cold. Bare brick walls, cold wall lights, no warm touches anywhere. The furniture was comfortable and everything worked so it was a pity that the...

Thank you for taking the time to give us this feedback. We pride ourselves on being a small family run, country style accommodation, with great ocean views and personalised service.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is in need of an update. The bathrooms are awkward. Regular shower curtains which is a pet peeve of mine. I dislike when they blow in on you. Putting that aside though for some reason the shampoo comes in bags and when you are in the shower it makes it difficult to...
