Relaxed and pleasant

Pros: Quiet, no background noises of other guests coming and going
Cons: The sign was a bit overgrown and I drove past it once.
Location: I was in area for work so I did not get to experience much. The local hotel did do a really great meal.
Very comfortable and well presented with a pleasant host and great breakfast.

Very enjoyable experience

Pros: Location, room size, Bed linen
Cons: Wifi access in rooms
Location: Close to Flinders Chase National Park, so great for access to Admiral's Arch and Remarkable Rocks. Also recommend a visit to Kelly Hill caves.
Perfect location for access to the Flinders Chase National Park. Generously sized room, king sized bed with high quality bed linen. Enjoyed an evening meal in the restaurant.

Great place and fantastic hostess

This was my first B&B and it was a truly great experience. Jane was very helpful and gave me heaps of tips which places to visit to avoid tour buses. House was clean and cozy and had everything I need. The house was very conveniently located for me as I can get to most places within half an hour. Highly recommended and will most likely return here when I revisit the island.

friendly and adventurous.

Pros: It was more like staying with a friend, very comfortable.
Location: Parndana Hotel, 300m walk up the road, had delicious food and choice of vegs from the salad bar . Middle of KI so had access to things in all directio
We learned lots about life on Kangaroo Island from Jane and had some good discussion about the history, people, animals, etc. Nice room with access to an outside area and a large eating area. We bought some fish which Jane cooked beautifully for us.
