We spent 4 nights at the Island Motel and had a great time using it as our base while we explored the Island. The room was clean and tidy. The beds were very comfortable and the hot water was very hot. We all enjoyed ourselves and will definitely use them again.

Advertised as having Indoor pool and dining room and neither available. This is disappointing especially during school holidays and a busy period. Room wasn’t clean.

The property is close to the 'heart' of Kingscote, certainly within walking distance. It was also very quiet. On the downside, this place is old and tired and charging far too much for what was offered. It used to be called a 'resort', but I now know why those letters were chipped off the rear wall sign.

Yes, old and tired, I have been here for only 2 months and it was even looking more tired before I came. Will take me a few more months to rejuvenate/renovate. But they are one of the cheaper places on the island, so it was never going to be modern. The main building was built in 1911 and is heritage listed. Lots of charm and stories go along with a place like this. But it is clean and neat and it is a place to sleep while you get to tour around this beautiful natural island. I hope you enjoyed your stay here on the island.
