      Lovely room, very caring staff”

      We stayed here last Dec 29th and as in the name of the hotel, we literally had a lovely sea view from our room. We were lucky enough to be assigned in their newly renovated room. It was very modern, comfortable and clean. It was a shame we had to move towns the next day but it was a perfect place to laze around and just look outside the window. The staff was very warm and welcoming too during checkin and throughout our stay. She was very helpful and we really appreciated that as we were checking out, she passed us a paper with details on where to go and where we can grab good food. We will definitely book this place again when we are in Kingscote next time.

      Great stay at KI Seaview Motel”

      I had a Guestroom shared bathroom; the room was clean, large and well setup, with beachfront views. There is a sink inside, as well as fridge, and table; Bed is super comfortable. Setup at the motel is beautiful; walking distance to great coffee (Cactus!), and only metres from the beach. The venue is going through a full refurb, and I can't wait to see it once it's done - it'll be STUNNING. There was a lot of infrastructure work going on, so will be great to see it once it's more tidy.

      Great value, beautiful views.”

      This is an older style motel with limited facilities but if you're not fussed about spa baths and trendy decor it is great value for money and in a fantastic position. Our room had spectacular views over the ocean and we could walk anywhere in the little town of Kingscote from the convenient location. Also the room seemed a little larger than the average motel room with a kitchenette area with toaster, plates, bowls, cutlery etc allowing us to easily make our own breakfasts. Friendly staff too and nice and clean.
