Bali style feel Villa in a perfect location”

During our 6 nights at Seafront, we stayed in a Garden Villa. These villas are great value for money. Situated in a beautiful garden area, these villas were build with a Bali feel. Reception staff were extremely friendly and house keeping staff went above and beyond and were also extremely friendly. Seafront is situated in beautiful Penneshaw, surrounded with everything you need and only about 500 meters away from the Ferry depot. We really enjoyed our stay.

Good Hotel on Kangaroo Island”

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.

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.

Enjoyable short stay accommodation”

recently painted, clean and modern, comfortable

very enjoyable with friendly staff. Did not have breakfast as this was quite expensive but room was clean, fresh, modern and comfortable and with the sea view was very relaxing. An ideal spot to stay near the ferry to the mainland and in walking distance to Penneshaw Hotel which was modernized and had great meals at reasonable prices.

Nice convenient hotel”

Near ferry, sea view, good room

We stayed one night - arrived late and left early so didn't use any facilities or eat breakfast. However we had dinner at the Penneshaw hotel next door which has the same owner and had a good meal with very friendly staff. Our seaview room was great - nothing flash but large, comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. There was a nice cafe round the corner which was unfortunately closed on the Wednesday that would have been good for breakfast but the local supermarket was very well-stocked. Very handy for the penguins (there are very few left) and the ferry.

Excellent”

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

Staff lovely & friendly, was disappointed that windows didn't open, to allow the sound & smell of ocean, which was our main reason for choosing the Hotel, & the TV was situated in another area,, so no relaxing in bed watching television.

Rooms are big but I prefer smaller. The one for double with sea view is very cozy. Staff are nice. Supermarket is just behind. There is a pub nearby where more people stayed there. Not much facilities in this hotel, restaurant and a mini golf. And a small outdoor pool but for not winter.

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
