Holiday without kids. Our first one. Very friendly hosts the entire time. Restaurant food was exceptional. Only negative was the bed (two singles pushed together, with only a sheet on top. Very uneven and uncomfortable.

We had amazing time staying at the hotel. We had breakfast and dinner everyday and all the meals was amazing. Front desk staff was very helpful and courteous. Room was clean and had a great view. Will definitely recommend to anyone visiting KI. It is also a good distance from the ferry jetty and Kingscote.

We chose this hotel as we are Accor club members and we do try and stay at Accor hotels whenever we can. The Mercure Kangaroo Island Lodge has a lot to offer.

It was our first trip to Kangaroo Island and we chose Mercure Kangaroo Island Lodge for 3 nights essentially because of its location in the NE corner of the island (we also booked a further 2 nights at the other end of the Island).

Dear George45, Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. It is appreciated. The Studio Waterview rooms do have a wonderful view across to Eastern Cove.

This was a good base for our time on Kangaroo Island. The room was basic but clean and warm. The bathroom had amazing water pressure, which was a great surprise. It is quite far from everything, but once we got a rental car, this wasn't an issue. In fact, being at the 'edge' of the island allowed us to take...

i find most hotels (including Mercures) very impersonal. This place is extremely well managed and friendly. Our accommodation was very comfortable and our two dinners were excellent. The manager was particularly nice and went out of his way to provide exceptional service to guests. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kangaroo Island, one of Australia's great wilderness destinations, is best known for its magnificent coastal views, unique landscapes, uncrowded beaches and fascinating wildlife, including kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, Australian sea-lions, New Zealand fur seals and Little penguins. Kangaroo Island is a place of natural beauty and a place to escape. Kangaroo Island Lodge is situated on the banks of Eastern Cove in American River, with all rooms perfectly perched offering exceptional water views over the bay. Amid lush coastal vegetation, Kangaroo Island Lodge blends in with its natural surroundings. There is no better place to unwind and to enjoy the peace and tranquility. The seclusion of this area allows for the abundance of wildlife to roam free. Tammar wallabies, brush tailed possums, black swans, Cape Barren geese, Australian pelicans and the rare and endangered glossy black cockatoos can all be found in here. The outer bay of Eastern Cove offers excellent sailing and fishing in protected waters. The Kangaroo Island oyster industry is also located in American River, with the Oyster Shed located just down the road from the Kangaroo Island Lodge. If you are a keen walker, there are two main walking tracks, the Independence Trail and the Fish Cannery walk. Both walks meander through the natural coastal scrub where numerous species of wildlife and birdlife can be seen. So why not come and escape to the Kangaroo Island Lodge? ... more   less
