lovelytraveller333 Families - TripAdvisor review

Clean accommodation. Very friendly staff. One lady went out of her way to help us with our laundry. Quiet location for R&R. Eat at the restaurant rather than the bar- much better food in the restaurant. Great wilderness surrounds. Would recommend

An excellent hotel in all respects with a very friendly staff and good food. Be sure to experience the pelican feeding at 9:15?every morning and the nature walk behind the hotel. Relaxing at the wood burning fireplace was a highlight of our visit.

Dear Bruce, Thank you for kind review and it's great to hear that you enjoyed the pelican feeding and our private nature walk. Hope to see you again on the island. Kind Regards Simon James General Manager

muja62 TripAdvisor review

Great destintion stayes 3 nights it was very cold but lots to see and do. We took the ferry and when we got off we toured Penneshaw then visited Dudley Wines for lunch then drove around the coast to Cape Willoughby to see the light house and then False Cape Wines . Stayed Kingscote which was central and has a few shops and restaurants and quite central. Next day visited we headed accross the other side and toured the coast to Vivonne Bay, Seal Bay, Cape Du Couedic, Admirals Arch & then back to the Parndarna Hotel which has a wall of the Kangaroo Island shearers. Last Day we went to Clifford's Honey Farm (Great Honey Ice Cream), Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Farm, KI Spriits, KI Brewery and The Lavender Farm.

Dear Muja62 Sounds like an amazing trip! It's wonderful to hear that you got to explore the area and experience all that it had to offer. We're happy that you were able to make the most of your stay on the island and enjoyed all the sites and attractions. Thank you for choosing us for your destination stay, we hope you had a great time! Kind Regards Simon James General Manager

LuluSEQueensland Couples - TripAdvisor review

Kangaroo island is quite large and we found the Mercure Kangaroo lodge are good central location to travel to the various parts of the island. The rooms are comfortable and very clean and the restaurant was excellent. Some reviews say the rooms are a bit tired but I think for the room rate they are great. Maybe if you want something you could go to the new 5 star lodges but the price is three times more. The surrounding area is good for flora and wildlife walks and every morning they can organise pelican feeding.

Dear LuluSEQueensland We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us at Mercure Kangaroo Lodge! Our team works hard to make sure our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable experience while visiting Kangaroo Island. Thanks for recommending us! Kind Regards Simon James General Manager
