We had a wonderful stay at the Kangaroo Island Seaside Inn. Office staff were great. All rooms face the ocean and you can even get breakfast in house. It's close to eateries for other meals. Give it a go! You'll enjoy yourselves.

We had an upper floor room and the views of the bay were lovely. Even though it was too breezy to sit on the balcony we could sit in the room and admire the view. Breakfast at $18 was good value. Service was efficient. Eateries within walking distance.

how far from ferry and is there a bus
The ferry arrives in Penneshaw which is a 45min drive to the town of Kingscote, where we are located. Kingscote is the largest town on Kangaroo Island and is well located for touring the island. There is no public transport on Kangaroo Island but there are shuttles which can be arranged through the ferry company SeaLink or KI Transfers. More information is available on our website.
