My Husband booked this B&B mostly based on location. It turns out he made a very wise choice! Given that we only had 2 days to explore all that a Kangaroo Island had to offer the location of this accomodation meant that we could maximize the time we had. KI (as the locals call it) is quite big and the...

We stayed a couple of nights at OH in early September 2016 when it was unseasonally cold (12 degrees and only 8 at night) and wet - in fact Adelaide and KI were experiencing floods. Jane was a great host - the most welcoming on our trip so far. The food was delicious (the puddings and cooked breakfasts especially memorable)...

We stayed just for one night and we were the only guests. Room was spacious, breakfast was delicious. Our host was very friendly and knowledgeable. Parndana is a very small town and the Hotel is the only option for meals and there are no tourist attractions - but a good place to sleep.

We visited Kangaroo Island in early April 2016 and chose to stay in Parndana because it is in the centre of the island so we wouldn't have to travel from Peniscola or Kingscote every day. Based on Trip Adviser reports we chose The Open House over the local hotel and other accommodation in Parndana and think we made the right...

The room was large with a good size ensuite and very comfy bed. The common areas are well laid out and spacious. We enjoyed our conversations around the breakfast table with the other guests. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. Jane was a superb host and provided plenty of local knowledge. Some areas are not quite five star for cleanliness and...

This was our first visit to Kangaroo Island, a self drive trip with 3 days and 2 nights. After looking at the many options for accommodation on the island we decided to go for an option that based us in the centre of the island to try to maximise our time. Our Hostess Jane met us at the door and...

We stayed there in the 3 first nights of our trip in kangaroo island. The owner is very lovely and helped us with a lot information of the island and places to visit. The breakfast was generous and the room was confortable for a couple. Parndana is in the middle of KI. Although we didn't have a lot to do...

Quiet place on Kangaroo island. The host is a woman who always is laughing. She is giving plenty of explanation to her guests, and she can prepare a wonderful breakfast. The bedrooms were nice and good.
