We spent two nights here - which we thought was enough to cover the main Kangaroo Island sights. The location is perfect - and is close to all of the Kangaroo Island attractions, especially if you have rented a car (you really have no other option on Kangaroo Island). The island itself only has approximately 4000 people so staying in one of the "bigger" towns like Kingscote or Penneshaw really doesn't make much of a difference in terms of things to do. There is a small shop nearby which has basically everything you need (including petrol), which stays open until around 8PM.
The room was basic but clean, with a slightly odd (but interesting) colour scheme, and provided all required amenities (cooking etc). Some locally handmade soap was provided which was a nice touch, and the beds were firm and comfortable. My only complaint was that the automatic air freshener was very strong, but it was able to be turned off :) Yes, the water pressure is low - but that's because they run on tank water - it's still adequate for a shower.
The hosts were very hospitable and were helpful in providing suggestions on where to eat and visit. I would stay here again :)
