The blonde hair manager was extremely rude, approaching my son, to complain about the mess in the bathroom, which consisted of a foot towel being left in the bathroom despite there being no wash basket or bin to put used soap in the cubicle. The fact that she approached a 11 year old without parents being there was disgusting.

Booked the Baudin room which would have been ample room for four. Small spa bath in bathroom and great ocean views from this room. Even your own little terrace. Lounge. Had a microwave toaster and kettle.

Kangaroo Island stay

The hotel is pretty old. Fixtures & fittings old. Bed squeaks. Lounge seats have old used coverings. Not my preferred style. Best described as "Looks Tired". Bathroom tap was leaking. Obviously not a high priority for hotel to fix. Some (glass) doors and windows don't have curtains, so very bright from outside lighting all night. Definitively not value for money.

We appreciate your feedback, all comments are of course followed up with staff and maintenance. We are quite aware Seaview is an older motel, there is nothing we can do about that, however we can take particular attention to cleaning and most importantly personal service is always a priority so everything is done to make our guests comfortable. Outside lights can be switched off once other guests have safely returned in the evening, our staff are happy to help if asked. Seaview was the first motel on Kangaroo Island and enjoys the best location in town, quiet street, elevated sea views, free BBQ facilities, parking right outside your room, and still just a step across the road from the main street conveniences. There are no 'new' motels on Kangaroo Island and our rooms are quite good value in comparison to other properties. Thank you for your time :) and we do hope you enjoyed our beautiful island as much as we love living here!

Pros: Waterfront
Cons: The curtains dont quite cover the whole window, it feels like people can see in.
Location: Go for walk to beach, there is a pool across which is handy for summer.
Nice view, the lamp cord was broken, so couldnt turn it on

nice old hotel with lovely beach views.

Pros: Close to town and lovely beach view from our bed. Nice old motel.
Cons: Fridge in room had a " dog barking" type sound ...had to turn it off to sleep. Better communication on Wotif re facilities.
Location: Good location close to town and beach. Nice walks, beach pool opposite...brrrr. Well located to explore the island. Nice pubs& shops nearby.
Got a shock on arrival, owner took several minutes to answer bell from reception..sorry, your room has shared bathroom facilities ...hmmm. But for an extra $20/ nite you can have a standard room with ensuite ..ok. Nice old motel/ guest house with lovely Seaview and opposite the beach. Short stroll into town, pier, nice pizza rest opposite. Good spot to explore the wonderful Kangaroo island. Room, bed, shower, all ok.
