Stayed in one of the studio rooms, decor and bathroom were the best features. The bed was two singles pushed together, which was rather uncomfortable. Staff were friendly, unfortunatley the hotel resteraunt service was terrible. The first time we ate there it took a long time for the food to come out which was poor considering we were one of...

Our stay at this hotel was a short overnighter only. We found the room to be very comfortable and clean. The hot water was hot and the addition of shampoo etc. was appreciated. There were tea/coffee making facilities in the room for that early morning coffee. An added bonus was the gorgeous view from the room across the bay. Internet... More

The Mercure brand is global and you expect a standard but at this hotel the staff are terrific and set the standard. The restaurant manager was well informed, knew his menu, food and wines. In the morning we arranged to feed the pelicans on last nights whiting scraps. Terrific fun. We had thirty of the hungry blighters vigorously attending. Our... More

Spent 5 nights there. Had mixed feeling about it. Great location, great staff, great food in the restaurant. I was worried before arrival as all the hotel at remote places are kind of poor on sound proof due to the way it was built. This hotel is no exception. As it was full house for the first few nights (I... More

We stayed in the "Standard" rooms, which were the cheapest available. It was a pleasant surprise to find the room recently refurbished, with new bathroom fittings and carpets. The room was spacious and had graceful high ceilings which really made the place feel open and bigger than it actually was. The bed was comfortable, there was minimal road noise although... More

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. The 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, the 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
