    All the right ingredients but missing the Mark ”

    Self rated as 4 star but really far from it. Location and view amazing. But then no wine glasses, cups with no saucers - so give a mug then. No chopping board - even a small plastic one - with a smallserated knife to cut a tomato or a lemon, nothing means you have to chop on the bench. Plates size didn’t even match, so looked like secondhand crockery cutlery and glassware, like no one cares. Handle fell off the hand basin. Towels were like cardboard. Wouldn’t take much to lift their game, but does need someone who cares about the guest experience to probably stay in one of the rooms themselves and see what is missing

Bathroom was shining and clean, even had a hair dryer. Happy with the price of the room, will stay again. The outside garden was paved and a swimming pool in a tropical looking setting, really nice. Great pizzas in the restaurant.

    Good place in Penneshaw - gateway tiwnship to Kangaroo Island. Seafront Hotel is 300 metres from car ferry. Older style rooms & service. Sea view to the north. Warm, comfortable, spacious room, with good bed and lounge area. Good pizza place in premises, and close to pub and restaurants.

    Great location however we had the worst room in the place tucked away without views, pokie and not pleasant and from what we observed there was no reason for us not to have an oceanview room as they were not fully booked. Being our first visit to KI, this accommodation was very disappointing.

    The perfect location for our early ferry trip back to Adelaide and we found the location superb. We arrived late in the afternoon and took a walk along the waterfront which was just beautiful. We did not have much time at the Hotel but the breakfast menu and room looked terrific, only sorry we didn't have time to enjoy. Close walking distance to the local IGA and the Penneshaw Hotel, it is a great location if staying in town

    A room with kitchenette doesn't contain a stove!”

    I upgraded my booking to a garden view villa for the kitchenette. But when I walked in there with all the cooking materials I only found a sink and a microwave there, not even a hot plate! The misleading description of the room could cause trouble, especially on the island when you don't have many choices for restaurants. Agoda should define and supervise the listing feature of hotels too. Location is okay. But if you plan to stay more than 1 day you might want to stay somewhere close to the middle of the island to save 1 hour

    Ideal for the ferry”

    We had a lovely time here, it's ideally based if you want to be close to the ferry terminal, it's within walking distance. We had a villa which are located to the rear of the main hotel. It was clean and functional offering self catering facilities, with a supermarket within walking distance. The only thing I would say as being from the UK, we underestimate the distances involved for visiting the attractions on the island. It's quite a trek each day to reach somewhere different. Perhaps next time I would position myself elsewhere, somewhere more central. Nether the less we had a good time and I would certainly reccomend this hotel if you want to stay in Penneshaw.
