This is an old motel and looks it and not what you might expect from a Mercure. There is nothing else in American River and nothing much to see in American River but it is twenty minutes from the ferry and convenient point to stay. Despite the old feeling of the place and a tired look outside the room was...

Hi Oldjack, I am sorry your expectations weren't met on your trip. Our location is in a small town, giving our guests a relaxing environment. On site we do have nature trail walks, a quality restaurant, swimming pool, sauna and WiFi. In your review you didn't mention any of these, so I am wondering if you took advantage of this?...

Hotel in great location opposite American River. Rooms were clean and tidy but hotel felt a little tired in parts for the money we had paid, particularly around the pool area. On our arrival day we sat by the pool which could do with some tlc. Several groups of locals pulled up in vehicles over the afternoon with swimming gear...

Thank you for your feedback on your stay. Yes we do have a lovely location. Being a small village community we do allow locals to utilise the pool, under the understanding that they must be well behaved. If there was something you were not happy with from their behaviour, our friendly staff could have corrected this. If there is ever...

We found this the perfect location for exploring Kangaroo Island. It is a 30 minute drive from the ferry, and allows easy access to any direction you want to explore. It also has full mobile coverage, and is near enough to amenities (like fuel, restaurants, supermarkets, and post offices) to make the stay even more comfortable. The area is very...

Firstly I love Kangaroo island so that is a plus, but so do the staff at this hotel, they are so positive, informative and helpful.

The reason I'm only giving 3 stars is based on the town itself not the lodge. American river is so boring! Nothing to do, one shop no where for dinner etc. Now to the hotel.

We booked this hotel as part of a deal and having never been to Kangaroo Island before, we didn't really know where it was in relation to everything else. I will say that it is a bit isolated, however, if you have a car and you want peace and quiet, this is perfect! We had our 2 month old with...

Great little spot on the island. Clean with what seems a variety of rooms. Nice restaurant and bar. Not much else around the area in the evening but then again Kangaroo Island is not the sort of place I would like to drive around in the dark.

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
