It was little like going back in time with some of the decor and fittings but on the whole the stay was restful with the service and food in the restaurant between 4 and 5 star. The food was excellent with a French overtone, the only comment would be is the menu lacked a lighter meal option especially if you are not a big eater. The view from the room was delightful across the inlet. A great place to stay we will return once we have saved up for trip over.

Thank you for your kind review, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you back when you next venture this way

We stayed there from 31 March to 4 April 2021 and really enjoyed our stay. The team members were excellent (very friendly and helpful), the food was great and the amenities met our needs. Highly recommended Mercure Lodge to anyone visiting Kangaroo Island!

Thank you for your review We look forward to welcoming you back the next time you visit KI regards

Great quiet and peaceful central location, in between Penneshaw and Kingscote. Very helpful and friendly staff, TV reception can be tricky but that is no fault of the Lodge's. Excellent Restaurant with high quality food and staff.

Thank you for your review, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. I'll pass on your comments to the staff We look forward to welcoming you back the next time you venture to the Island regards

Nice comfortable stay

Andy B TripAdvisor review

Only real comment is that based on its (remote) location, the restaurant hours were a bit restrictive, especially breakfast 7:30-9, even an extra 30 minutes would be better allowing for a walk along the very beautiful walks available from the hotel before breakfast!?

Hi Andy, thanks for your comments they are appreciated. For most of our guests the 9.00am finish for breakfast suits as they are off touring the Island - or maybe doing the beautiful walks after breakfast. regards Ian

The Mecure Kangaroo Island Lodge was a very peaceful, comfortable place to stay. The food in the restaurant was excellent with great service. The rooms were clean and comfortable and all the covid-19 regulations were carefully addresses.

Hi Margaret We are very fortunate to be located were we are - surrounded by nature in American River. We have taken great care in regards to the COVID situation, so I am pleased that you found we have addressed this carefully and thoughtfully. We look forward to welcoming you back the next time you visit. regards
