We're currently touring around South Australia and Victoria and spent 2 nights here. Compared to our other accommodation I would describe this as more basic and a little on the pricier side compared to others but then it is peak season and the location is great. The rooms are dated. I'd describe the place as basic but comfortable. It has...

The units were located on the foreshore of Kingscoate and were a great base for the rest of the island (Seal Bay, Remarkable Rocks, Vivonne Bay etc). The owners were friendly. However, the accommodation was outdated and overpriced. It is in need of a renovation.

Stayed here two nights with friends from the UK. The rooms are a little dated but exceptionally clean and very comfortable. While there is no pool, if you are brave enough you can try the swimming pool just below the motel that is sea water fed. Very good. The outdoor area was also good for relaxing and having a few...

As soon as I arrived to the island I decided to stay longer than I thought from the beginning. There was no problem to book one more night and that was not the only thing that I got some help with. Both the view and the location is great, couldn't be better. The room was clean and very nice. I...

We stayed here for three nights, Found the rooms spacious and clean and the beds very comfortable. The Manager was very friendly and helpful, and gave us lots of travel tips. The view from our room overlooked the Nepean Bay.

I loved this place. It is a 70's style original hotel. But everything is emaculate. Really nice beds with a couple of modern touches. These days people would call it vintage. I was there as the driver of a group of 16. There was a really nice dining room we could use each day. Bbq facilities and kitchen. I would...

An older style motel this facility is very well maintained and managed by Tim & Bobby Waller. We spoke with Bobby a couple of times, she is extremely knowledgable about the Island and will do all she can to help you plan your visit and see as much as you can, comfortably. The rooms are very clean, equipped with all...

In the Seaview motel now. Is a great room and super close to everything in kingscote. The name says it all. Right beside the water with fantastic views over the water to nepean bay and other bits of ki. Service is great and with a smile and very helpful not to mention the 12 o'clock pm check in. Highly recommended.

Was quite disappointed in this place. The unit was very outdated and in serious need of a facelift. In a good location although not much going on in Kingscote. It was clean and tidy though but not really very appealing.
