I booked this hotel via the Sealink website when I booked the ferry ride over to Kangaroo Island. It seemed competitively priced and well located in Kingscote. Only a quiet road separates the property from the cliffs overlooking the ocean. It is a short 5 minute walk to the main street and about 10 minutes to the jetty. Parking was...

Large room. Great view looking out on the water.Internet access works well on balcony outside room but not inside, who cares sit outside and look at the view. The facilities are dated but clean. Easy walk to restaurants. Overall good value for money. I would definitely stay again.

Before I go on.... The staff a great, they addressed all queries immediately... The motel though is very dated, and basic..... but the room was serviced daily, and therefore cleanliness is not a concern. We stayed in one of the ocean view rooms, and the view was superb, being effectively on Napean Bay The "free wifi" was run from a...

Great inexpensive place to stay. Our ocean view room was fine. Bed made, bins emptied & towels replaced each day (we stayed 5 nights) It is a little old & dated though, no exhaust in the bathroom so there is a little mould in the shower but thats not a major thing as i said its very inexpensive and the...

Great Position & view, value for money, has character & loved the wrap around veranda of the guest house, clean, needs a bigger TV & updating / renovating - shared bathrooms were clean - we enjoyed our stay. However, we were there on the long weekend in Kingscote - the main town on KI & there were only 2 places...

OK its not the Hilton but its in a great location and has everything you need from a motel. Whilst agreeing it may be time for a spruce up our rooms had a nostalgic charm and were clean and comfortable. We only stayed for one night as we were head out of Kingsgate but it was all we needed.

The room provided fairly basic accommodation that had been mostly renovated. The bathroom was clean and recently retiled, the bedroom had a new carpet, appealing quilt covers and what appeared to be a renovated bedheadhead. Lighting in the room was better than average and it had kitchen cupboards and a stainless steel sink that were somewhat dated but perfectly satisfactory....

We stayed in the historic 1929 guesthouse with the veranda all around, looking out onto the waters of Nepean Bay. There were nice views of the sunrise. Our room was clean and spacious and had a lot of character, being in the older part of the motel. We had a shared bathroom across the breezeway and a small kitchen nearby....

the Motel is in a good position, our room was overlooking the water. The motel itself is old and could do with some repairs and maintenance done to it. The laundry was not that clean and no detergent but eventually got some. There is no restaurant so you had to go some where to eat but having said that there...
