The staff were helpful and friendly, as in most hotels in Australia. We had a very nice and quiet room with sea view, making it possible to sit outdoor and enjoy a sund downer. Our meal at the restaurant was pleasant but not outstanding. The hotel offers good laundry services for its guests.

Had an enjoyable two night stay here. Our room had a very comfortable bed with good pillows and the bathroom was great, with plenty of room for storage and a powerful shower. All staff were very helpful and we enjoyed the evening meals we had in the restaurant.

We stopped here for one night on our way to the west end of the island. But we felt we landed in the lap of luxury: a comfortable bed, nicely appointed room overlooking the pool and a large, recently renovated bathroom. The pool looked inviting and we would have gone swimming, but water was too cold (needs a heater). But...

We really enjoyed our 3 day visit to Kangaroo Island and stay at This Mercure Lodge. The rooms were standard motel rooms facing the estuary, a lovely view, very tranquil. The whole place suited us as we like bush walks and nature, and bird watching, having a coffee in nice settings. The meals were really very nice- they have a...

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...

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
