An older style motel this facility is very well maintained and managed by Tim & Bobby Waller. We spoke with Bobby a couple of times, she is extremely knowledgable about the Island and will do all she can to help you plan your visit and see as much as you can, comfortably. The rooms are very clean, equipped with all...

In the Seaview motel now. Is a great room and super close to everything in kingscote. The name says it all. Right beside the water with fantastic views over the water to nepean bay and other bits of ki. Service is great and with a smile and very helpful not to mention the 12 o'clock pm check in. Highly recommended.

Was quite disappointed in this place. The unit was very outdated and in serious need of a facelift. In a good location although not much going on in Kingscote. It was clean and tidy though but not really very appealing.

The Seaview is clean, reasonably priced and has a good view, really do you need more than that?? Sure, it is like your older aunt, she is not flash or the latest thing, she is one for cleanliness, but you still like her and you feel at home with her. The Seaview is good value

Booked into the Matthew Flinders unit with my daughter and 2 grandsons. The unit was very spacious and clean. Good location with easy parking. Reasonably priced. Just perfect for a family. Nice view too.

This place is good if you want to spend a night in Kingscote. Not too far from a pub, not too far from the grocery store. Clean and not complicated. Free wifi. Nice sea views. By the style and furniture, freshly renovated in the early 1990s. But all that being said, one of the good options in Kingscote. For international...

Stayed here for a night while on Kangaroo Island. We got in pretty late and still managed to get a room. The room itself was pretty okay, nothing special. Some rooms have a shared shower and bathroom but when you are staying just a night its totally worth it if you get the room for pretty cheap. They do have...

This motel is rather dated but its facilities are still good. The spacious room is clean and has amenities like kettle, coffee & tea provisions, toiletries and hairdryer. There is a verandah outside the room with chairs for you to relax on. As we had chosen a room with a view of the sea, it was great to be able...

oldfashioned aircon noisey, hard to use, fridge noisy-leaked when switched off, curtains wont cover outside lights,cant get decent shower,no bedside radio, OK bed, clean. Needs total fitout to warrant cost. I didnt complain to manager as that is obviously the standard of all.
