A Great Place to Stay !

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Nov 13, 2023via mobile
A great place to stay very near the ferry terminal for Kangaroo Island.

We stayed in a lodge/chalet and recommend you try and get one of these for your stay it is ‘self contained’ and has en suite bedroom and lounge/diner.

Excellent car parking. A good restaurant on site ‘The Kiosk’ and the pub nearby also does great food.

The hotel has a swimming pool and a crazy golf/putting course.

A very comfortable stay and highly recommend.

Room was clean and fresh and very comfortable. Staff were welcoming when checking in. The whole place has more rooms than you first think. Great location just up from the ferry terminal with views across the water.

We had a 3 night getaway at the Seafront after travelling to Kangaroo Island vi the Sealink.
Location is perfect with the hotel a very short distance from the ferry terminal.
A small town and everything was walking distance. The location was great with brilliant views of the ocean from our room. We even saw 2 whales from our balcony.
Room was basic and needs a bit of maintenance but it was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
We have visited KI twice, first time we stayed in Kingscote which was great and a little more central. Penneshaw is a small, very friendly town and great location for the ferry.
Had a great time

Don't be fooled by the photographs on this hotel's website - it's probably best rated as a 2-star.

The good: close to the ferry terminal. Rooms are spacious with tea / coffee making facilities and toaster. All rooms overlook the sea with a balcony. Free, self-operated laundry facility on-site. Parking available on-site. Check-in efficient and friendly - staff helped with luggage.

The poor: Penneshaw is at one end of Kangaroo Island which means a long drive to get anywhere else. No lift to rooms on first floor. Reception is not manned 24-hrs. Thus a fire alarm at 5am went unanswered until a staff member arrived from elsewhere. Breakfast choice is limited for the inclusive breakfast (if you choose B&B) - you can only have one of tea or coffee or an orange juice. No buffet; order your choice from the kitchen bar.

Gluten-free bread is available.

The hotel has a restaurant - again order from the kitchen bar, Note that one day a week the only food available is pizza. This was problematic for a gluten-free diet. After some difficult discussion the chef offered to prepare a risotto which was actually very tasty.

We were checked into our garden villa for one night by a very pleasant lady on reception, and would loved to have been able to stay longer. Our villa was very clean, comfortable and quiet. No complaints from me whatsoever. I would definitely stay here again.

This accommodation is advertised as 4* but is more like 2*. We had an upstairs room for 3 nights. When we checked in the interior of the whole hotel and the room looked very tired. Our outside balcony was filthy with cobwebs all along the windows - my husband went down to reception to asked for a cleaner at 3pm but the cleaner had gone home for the day, so he said he would do it himself and they gave him a cloth. I tried to wipe the outside table but it was so ingrained with and dirt I couldn’t get the cloth through it. I had to use washing up liquid and a cloth to clean it. Next day we were told a ‘deep clean’ would be carried out - but this was not done properly. There was still someone else’s hairs in my bedside table. Having said all this - The food for breakfast was one of the best meals we had on the island and also a superb evening meal in their recently refurbished restaurant. Also Alison who works in the restaurant in the morning and on reception in the hotel was lovely, friendly and very helpful The views from the hotel were wonderful. There was an area to wash and dry clothes which I did use, but again, the whole area just looks run down and dirty. This tired hotel in my opinion needs a lot of work on it to bring it back to a 4* accommodation.
