Stayed here as part of a group tour. Good standard hotel – clean, comfortable, spacious and a great view of the bay. I did notice that it was a bit noisy as you could hear the guests in the neighbouring rooms at times. No issues...More

A simple motel but a good-sized room, balcony with nice view of water, nice breakfast available. A pleasant one km walk along a coastal track in to Kingscote township.Beware that restaurant options in the town are somewhat limited (especially on football awards night in September!).
