« KI magic »

My wife and I had our first visit to KI staying 3nights in a water view room. Very comfortable although a bit dated & some areas in need of repair which we understand is happening soon. We were very warmly welcomed by management James and Leica. Other staff were fantastic (special mention for Anna & Cecilia for providing friendly and helpful service). Food in the restaurant is excellent & a great initiative to stock a large range of KI wines which are good quality. Looking forward to returning again.

Fantastic staff, very helpful, great food and service. Location a little out of the way but great area for exploring the tiny township of American River. Easy enough to get around to the other tourist sights.

Dear Karen S, Thank you for your review. It is pleasing to hear that our location being 'a little out of the way' still suited your needs, we pride ourselves in American River as being away from the 'hustle and bustle'. A True Escape. It is always great to hear our staff are helpful and you enjoyed your food. We hope when you are next due for a relaxing holiday you come back and see us. Kind regards, James

« Great place to stay »

A great place to stay on Kangaroo Island. Friendly, helpful service, good food breakfast and dinner, rooms are fine and lots of local wildlife to see. Ask about the local evening walk, to see wallabies, possums and etchinada

The rooms were adequate, and had nice balconies. Loved going on our night walk with torches the hotel provided! Dinner in the restaurant was fantastic!

« Enjoyable and comfortable »

Staff were excellent, room lovely. Bathroom floor wasn't cleaned the first morning & could have provided clean towels. Towels were provided when requested without hesitation. Breakfast was everything you could wish for except it could be kept hotter. Evening meals were good except expensive

« Not the usual Accor standard that we are accustomed to. »

The rooms are very tired. The rooms were superficially clean. If u moved chairs it was apparent that cleaning missed the wild life behind them Cobwebs hung from above the bed. Breakfast concluding at 9am is not conducive to rest when one is holidaying. Not hotels give you till at least 10am. The continental breakfast should have included pastries. What was on offer was very basic and not up to the standartd of other Accor hotels we have stayed in. However, the evening meals were very good and of a high standard.

« Short staffed / expensive / limited menu »

Facilities were OK, but took a long time to get two coffees at the bar & book a table for dinner as only one staff member answering phone, checking guests in & running the bar. Nowhere else to eat in American River so we tried the restaurant, limited choice of meals & very expensive, food was nothing special, quite tasteless. Breakfast was the same & the coffee was terrible, milk was off we think. Disappointed as lots of overseas visitors there, (we are locals from SA) they would leave with the impression we overcharge for mediocre food in Australia. Staff were friendly & nice but we felt sorry for them, they were understaffed & given ordinary food to hand out.

« good location, food and hotel were excellent »

The staff were all very obliging and happy. Chris and David went out of their way to help us, nothing was a problem. This made our stay enjoyable and relaxing. The breakfasts were presented well and above standard. There were plenty of choices for the dinner menu. The ones we tried were all very tasty and fresh. A most enjoyable dinning experience. We both had a lovely five night stay at your hotel. Have been recommending it to all our friends and relatives as a place to stay on Kangaroo Island..

« Friendly GEM »

It is always nice to be greeted by a smile!! and you room ready. The advice we obtained from the staff was ALWAYS correct and useful. Dinner was a dream - Fig salad followed by the eye steak RARE is a must. Perfect breakfast - ALL the various taste were as they should be. Well done to all.

« A great break »

We had a great 3 night break at Kangaroo Island Lodge. It is ideally situated to travel right round the island. The food is excellent and the staff very helpful and friendly.

« Very good staff though hotel a bit tired. »

Good location. Swimming pool beds few and old. I fell through one due sun damage. Pool was well quite looked after but surrounds tired. Room was good and notably clean. Beds mattresses prob need replacing. Staff made the hotel.

« Rooms not particularly clean and food not up to par »

Tours were excellent but accommodations and food were a disappointment. The only good thing about Mercure were Chris and David. It was obvious that the waitstaff in the restaurant were not trained and there were not enough of them.

« Beautiful, peaceful hotel »

I enjoyed everything about my time at the Mercure Kangaroo Island Lodge, except for the food. For the high prices, I expected much more. While the dishes weren't bad, they were notably average and at times lacking in the right flavor ratios. For example, I wasn't able to taste the crab in the crab pasta or the salmon in the salmon tartare. The pasta was overpowered by tomato and the tartare by dill. Food aside, this hotel is quietly beautiful. It blends in with the surrounding landscape, making for a calm and earthy feel. The rooms have everything you need for a pleasant stay. I particularly liked the floor to ceiling windows, which opened onto a patio with views of the bay. Staff were helpful, friendly and professional. They gave off a responsible, yet casual vibe; perfect for Kangaroo Island.
