Kangaroo Island Seafront

Reviewed 5 April 2006

They messed up our reservation for twin beds, however there was no problem upgrading our room since there was a vacancy. A class act operation. As a result we got to see the cheap rooms and the cottages. Both were appropriate for the money. You don't have to stay in your room - there is a lovely pool/hot tub/garden area and a bar to relax in. Across the street is a lovely park by the water.

The location is excellent - near the ferry, Budget rent-a-car, and the fairy penguins. We only stayed overnight. Got there late, saw the penguins, slept and took off for Cape Couedic early the next day.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel, in a deluxe ocean front room, situated at the front of the hotel, on the ground floor. The bedroom was quiet and spacious with slightly tired but comfortable furnishings.
We enjoyed the view of the ocean from our room, but it was somewhat hampered by the parked cars on the road between the hotel and the seafront. We think that a room on the 1st floor would have been better for appreciating the ocean views.
We dined one evening at the hotel's restaurant, "Sorrento's". The food was very good and reasonably priced. We liked that the menu & wine list both featured and highlighted local Kangaroo Island produce.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.
There was open air car parking on premises.
The town's main shop, pub, takeaways (pizza and fish and chips) and post office were a short walk from the hotel.
Despite the fact that most of the major sights on the island are a fair drive away from Penneshaw we would still think that Penneshaw is a good base for travellers.

Good hotel although old. Rooms are charming and clean. Be aware, no elevators. Would stay again. Food in the restaurant very good but expensive.

We stayed at the Penneshaw Seafront Hotel, Kangaroo Island and loved it, the food was very good, the Chef was so funny, we were not in the room very much as we spent 2 full days touring, loved going to see the Fairy Penguins at night, we could just walk there.

Parndana Wildlife park was a highlight, Remarkable Rocks, Admiralty Arch, Seal Bay, Eucalyptus factory, actually all the tours, just the driving around the island, we seemed to be going back and forth.

Our bus driver was very good and we had him both days so it was like a private tour.

We would like to go back after we have seen more of Australia.
