We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is in need of an update. The bathrooms are awkward. Regular shower curtains which is a pet peeve of mine. I dislike when they blow in on you. Putting that aside though for some reason the shampoo comes in bags and when you are in the shower it makes it difficult to...

Hi Sherri, Thank you for taking the time to give us this feedback. I'm sorry you felt the standard of the rooms were not up to your expectations. We actively advertise ourselves as a small, spotlessly clean, family run, country style accommodation property that offers great ocean views and personalised service. The bathrooms are a bit dated but they are...

Chris and the team are very friendly, the rooms are clean with fantastic views and dinner at the restaurant was amazing. Great base to experience everything KI has to offer. Don't look any further - KISI is great value and perfect location. Little hint - bring your snorkelling gear and head out straight from the beach across the road for...

This is a small hotel about 100 m from a beach. Excellent to take a bath in the sea. A very good continental breakfast is served. A small hotel restaurant (not open sundays but a hotelrestaurant 1 km away is available). Free good wi-fy is provided. Nice large clean rooms with seaviews.

Thanks for this great feedback. The nearby beach is a great spot for swim when the weather is warm and the town centre which is just 1km away offers some great alternate dining options for dinner. Thanks for the positive feedback regarding the free Wi-Fi. Regards, Alex

Stayed for one night. Extremely clean and excellent value for your money. Comfortable beds, white linen, easy parking and beautiful location. Enjoyable dinner at the restaurant - was fully booked on the Friday night - breakfast was overpriced at $15. Overall a pleasant stay.

We chosen the Seaside Inn as base to visit the island. It's well positioned to reach each point of the island for daily trips. The room was big, serviced daily and clean, and had a veranda to seat outside. The restaurant was very good, I tried Kangaroo meat for the first time and was delicious. Personnel is very friendly!
