We arrived at the hotel a bit too late in the evening but the staff was so kind to serve us the dinner before to close to kitchen.
Unfortunately we couldn't enjoy the ocean view because there was foggy weather.
The rooms are quite big and it's true the wifi signal is a bit too far. to summarize the hotel is in the average, but as somebody else also said in his review, kangaroo island is a special place and the accommodation is not the most important thing.

Hi,
Thanks for the review and comments. We are a simple country style motel and pride ourselves on our personalised service and great ocean views. So I am pleased to hear we got you dinner after getting off the late ferry despite the fact that the weather hampered the view.
I have just invested on extra WiFi routers for the rooms as I have noticed that the network has been strained with extra users during this busy period. I do appologise if there were any interruptions during your stay.
I trust that you enjoyed the trip to KI and hope that your stay with us was equally enjoyable.
See you next time!
Alex

We absolutely loved the seaside inn in Kingscote! Every room has a stunning view of the coast, the location is within walking distance to shops and cafés in Kingscote and the staff are incredible! Alex, the manager, was very helpful in assisting us with booking our tours, orienting us to the town & ensuring that our stay was perfect! (Alex, you deserve a superman cape for the volumes of work you do in one day's time! Thanks so much for making our stay on kangaroo island a magical experience- my only regret is that I couldn't stay longer!)

Fantastic location near the town centre of Kingscote, but in a calm and relaxed area. We stayed there for just one night during our last trip to Australia. Kangaroo Island is a great place to visit and this lovely hotel offered us the perfect option for a night of rest. Our room had a wonderful view on the sea. Staff was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay a lot.

Hi,
Thank you for your great review. We are pleased to hear your experience was 'excellent'.
Many of our customers enjoy the location, being walking distance to everything and located right on the foreshore. All our rooms have great ocean views.
Hopefully the next time you get to visit it will be for more than one night.
Cheers,
Alex and Chris

Our stay was very comfortable and happy. We enjoyed sea front line. The staff was very helping .
We left behind certain medicine in the in the bar-fridge. The staff later sent these medicine to us at Adelaide. The service was great.

Room Tip: The sea side rooms are better and soothing.

Hi Mr Pabla,
I'm glad you and your wife enjoyed your stay. It is pleasing to know that you got your medicine back. That's all part of the personalised country service that we base our motto on.
Hopefully we see you again in the future.

Alex and Chris

The sea view from the room is really nice (although they should clean the windows), the bed is huge and comfortable, the room is big, the spa bath is awesome and the man at the reception was really nice.
The breakfast is good but expensive.
The whole stay was great though.

Thanks for the 'pretty awesome' review!
I'm glad you enjoyed the room and all the facilities. The Spa in the Executive rooms is a great treat at the end of a hard day touring.
We have had a bit of ocean wind lately and as a result a fair bit of sea spray has gotten on the windows but as always we try and keep them as clean as possible to take full advantage of the views. Sometimes, living on the foreshore, makes keeping the windows clean a never ending battle.
Thanks again and hopefully we see you on KI again soon.
Alex and Chris
