Like many folk I guess we had been booked into the KI Seafront hotel because of its proximity to the ferry terminal. With hindsight somewhere more central in the island would have been preferable to reduce travel distances but not sure such places exist. We had been originally booked into the cabins at the rear of the hotel but, on...

This hotel was near everything in Penneshaw. We walked everywhere. The breakfast was great. Eggs made to order with a variety of other stuff on the buffet. It is real close to the ferry if you are leaving early it is ideal. It is right across from Hogg Beach. We could see the ocean from our room. Would not recommend...

Our room was a little "tired" & floorboards were extremely squeaky. We were disappointed that our room had sealed windows, thus precluding us from neither smeling/ nor hearing the sounds of the ocean, which was the main reason for choosing this hotel. Our wi fi wouldnt work, but as we had long days out, we didnt bother following this up....

The Hotel is a short walk from the Ferry and facilities. The room was spacious with a spectacular view out over the Ocean. The breakfast is plentiful and nice and the local honey yoghurt is excellent. It is only a short walk to Restaurants that have great food and service.
