Kangaroo Island Lodge Hotel with very kind and service minded owners. A greater place is hard to find with many good walks to be tried out. The beach 🏖 has a adorable and relaxing influence on anybody and gives you time to relax. Very family friendly place. Hope to visit here again.

Secondly, she assured that things will be fine next day but we faced same issues again. We stayed there for 3 days but no one took... More

As a local I have been visiting this restaurant for a number of years. There have been a few years where the meals have been hit and miss, depending on the Chef at the time. I have often eaten here and not been sure of the quality of meal I would get. Now with the tireless work of the fabulous... More

Booked in here at last minute due to ferry cancellation and whilst not your standard Mercure style of property the buildings were interesting and the old main building was fabulous, architecturally. Rooms clean and well appointed and beds very comfortable. Restaurant was ok to good but seemed to oversupply on food, which was a bit wasteful. The service was very... More

Great little spot on the island. Clean with what seems a variety of rooms. Nice restaurant and bar. Not much else around the area in the evening but then again Kangaroo Island is not the sort of place I would like to drive around in the dark.

Stayed 4 nights in a ground-floor room in the newer rammed-earth wing of the Lodge. Very quiet location with only 1 general store and an oyster shop within walking distance, but fantastic views, birdlife, and absolute peace and quiet. Room was clean and well-maintained and the kitchenette was handy. King-size bed very comfy. Bathroom clean and new, could do with... More

We stayed here 2 nights in February and really enjoyed it.
