“met all our needs”
Reviewed 27 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This property was perfect for us in every respect.
Clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Add to all this a lovely view, good location and hospitable owner. Parking on the property with easy key collection. Owners also left us a lot of tourist info, basic essentials and a lovely touch of flowers. Our stay on this truly beautiful island was simply enhanced by a wonderful stay at this home.

“Great base for a holiday on KI”

We had a very relaxing five-day break on Kangaroo Island, based at Admirals Inn. It was a delight to return each day from our exploration of the island to this very comfortable, tastefully decorated and well-equipped place. It is close to the shops and eating places in Kingscote, yet its position on a street above the main area meant we had quiet surroundings and wonderful views. Choice of a good shower and spa bath were appreciated, as was the efficient heating on the cool evenings. Vicki and Mark responded promptly to any communication and keep the place, inside and out, very clean and tidy. Little touches such as the fresh flowers in the rooms, basics supplies in the pantry, and Tim-Tams in the fridge added to the welcome. We would be very happy to come back to Admirals Inn on any future trips to KI.

“Admiral's Inn Kingscote KI”
Reviewed 13 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Admiral's Inn. We spent 6 nights with every need catered for. Personal touches made the home so welcoming and the view was an added bonus. Spacious covered car parking, quiet surroundings and very well equipped kitchen made our time spent there so comfortable. Our stay coincided with the severe weather event which all of South Australia experienced and our landlords ensured our welfare was attended to. Would definitely stay here again particularly as Kingscote seemed to us to be the most ideal location for visiting all the island has to offer.

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.
