“Great accommodation ”

The hosts are excellent to communicate with. They have a spotless house up on the hill overlooking the town. The facilities are excellent, a few items in the pantry which is nice of them, great BBQ, books and CD's. They leave great detail on their map of things to see and do. Easy walk to lookout and beautiful veranda to enjoy breakfast or the sunset of an evening.

Very good communication with the owners - instructions on getting there and settled were perfect. Also very good with recommendations on what to do.

2 main bedrooms were very cosy and large kitchen/living/dining area a great space to hang out in. We really appreciated the incidentals in the pantry like oil, salt, pepper, tea, coffee to make cooking easy.

Portacot and high chair were supplied.

“Outstanding home away from home!”

The minute you step through the door into Admiral's Inn you feel like you've come home. Seriously!! The atmosphere inside this beautifully appointed holiday home is amazing. Everything has been thought of, even a map with recommended beaches, cafes and wine AND, a packet of Timtams in the fridge! The kitchen facilities are outstanding. The bathroom as good as any high end hotel (the shower is awesome). You can even have a spa bath if you choose! The beds are comfy and Vicki has even provided lavender spray for the room or your pillow to help you nod off. There are laundry facilities if you need them and outside on the back deck a bbq if you want to throw a few prawns on the barbie, The views of the bay from the front deck are stunning. A lovely place to sit and relax with a cold glass of vino at the end of a busy day. All in all a perfect location for what we wanted to do on KI and certainly the standard of accommodation we wanted. Many thanks Vicki and Mark!!

Thank you Nicola, we are so happy we could make your stay at the Admirals Inn and on Kangaroo Island such a pleasant one and great to see you loved the home as much as we do.
The front deck is a great spot to sit back and relax after a day touring Ki.
Once again thanks and safe travels Vicki and Mark

“Excellent facilities and Oh what a view”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

You could tell that a lot of thought had been put into providing all of the things that you would need on a holiday. My wife particularly liked the kitchen facilities.
Kingscote serves as an excellent base to getting to any part of Kangaroo Island.
