Kangaroo Island Acacia Apartments
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Kingscote
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 February 2012

My wife and I spent several days exploring Kangaroo Island. The first few nights we stayed on the west end but needed a place that was closer to the ferry terminal for our trip back to the mainland. We called Deidre on short notice and she was very welcoming. When we pulled up her dog was bouncing around and being friendly. Deidre was very helpful and talked to us like we'd know each other for years. She even called into town to the hotel and reserved us a table for "schnitzel night". We thought this was a joke but once we arrived and ordered and saw other groups of tourists get turned away we realized this is a big deal in Kingcote.

The rooms have all the amenities you would need to spend time on the island. The bathrooms are spacious, the kitchen stocked with things like milk and butter and tea. There is a tv and free movies from the front desk. Although we didn't use the pool house I did explore that and the surrounding grounds on the property and they are beautiful. It is quiet and peaceful and Diedre could not be a better host.

My husband and I spent 8 nights in a spa apartment. The apartment was extremely clean and spacious. When we arrived there was a 'survival' package in the apartment, ie tea bags, milk, breakfast cereal and nicely chilled water in the fridge. The kitchen contained all the necessary utensils to make cooking very easy even including aluminium foil and clingfilm. There were a couple of bbqs available should you wish to use them.
The laundry facilities were excellent, not in the apartment, but washing powder was supplied, even a washing line should you prefer to use it rather than the clothes drier.
Our sheets and towels were changed half way through our stay and supplies of toiletries replaced.
I would recommend this place to my friends, the staff were lovely also and very helpful.
There was wifi available at no extra cost and the tv, dvd were modern.

Room Tip: We had apartment 3 which looked out onto the central garden.

These apartments are 1 km from the town centre and the walk there is pleasant. We had a spacious apartment and no complaints with equipment..... and yet we found it a little odd. Maybe it's the old fashioned feel to the decor (like visiting Grannie) or the fact that we saw no staff in three days (we just received notes). It was fine but we were pleased to move on.
Do go to the Bay of Shoals winery around the corner from here - superb wine in a great location.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a spa apartment which was extremely clean and very spacious. Even though we had our car, we arranged a tour with Deidre (the very friendly owner) of the north side of the island as access to the scenic spots on this side of the island were on unsealed roads. We thorougly enjoyed the tour and well worth it as we got to see almost everything this side of the Island had to offer. The appartments are in a quiet area and easy walking distance to the main town of Kingscote. The pelican feeding on the Kingscote pier is also worth attending. As we stayed for 5 nights, we had a night for free and so thought the Acacia Apparments are great value. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The spa appartments are very spacious.

The Acacia Apartments are somewhat pricy, but I think most accommodations on Kangaroo Island are pricy. Our apartment was a large two bedroom apartment with very comfortable furniture. The kitchen was large. Parking is right outside the door.
We really had no complaints, but if you want to be within walking distance of restaurants and have a view of the ocean, you might be happier at the Aurora Ozone Hotel in Kingscote (the newer section). These looked quite nice when we drove by.

On our late arrival Diedre offered to drive us to the hotel so we could have dinner. She offered to drive us back but it was a nice night and not far so we walked home. The apartments are very comfortable with bread, milk, butter, cereal, etc supplied on arrival which took the hassle out of breakfast on the first morning. The apartments are very well situated for both walking to shops and restaurants and also for driving around the island.
We went on the penguin tour which is recommended as is seeing the pelicans being fed every day at 5pm. Also worth seeing is the sheep dairy where you can watch the sheep being milked and taste the delicious cheeses and yoghurts. You must go up to Seal Bay and do the seal tour it is fantastic. Also if you go on to Admirals Arch you will see the NZ fur seals.
We stayed for 4 nights but you could easily stay longer for a really great holiday.
