Pros: Nothing outstanding?
Cons: The place unknowingly was in the back of beyond with little to nothing available around, pub, takeaway etc which did impact the stay.
Pros: The overall experience was satisfying with the proprietors very hospitable. The restaurant was good with a variety of choices and the wine list was great. Particularly since it was local wines.
Pros: Host were awesome.. Kim thanks for preparing us a lovely breakfast.. Best view
Pros: 4 star restaurant on site. Perfect location.
Pros: It was difficult to find hotels on Kangaroo Island, and the few that there were mostly had a 2-3 night minimum, but Wanderer’s Rest let us book for only the 1 night, and we left wishing we could have stayed longer. The views from the room are spectacular, the room itself was comfortable & spotlessly clean, and the restaurant was excellent, and also had an amazing view. Order the “steak on a brick” with the potato skins - you won’t be disappointed! The owners & rest of the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful in answering our questions.
Cons: No complaints at all.
Pros: Awesome views， very comfy bed and great location. The meals cooked by Kim`s daughter were fabulous and there was a great choice. Wines were also excellent. Kim was a generous and lovely host， as was her daughter， and they both really went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and lots of fun. Kim was also very informative about places to visit on the Island. Highly recommend.
Pros: Comfy bed
Cons: Hot/cold water in shower impossible to get an appropriate temperature. Restaurant closed Friday night. Mosquitoes in room.
Pros: The evening meals were the best we have ever tasted and we thank Kim and family for their untiring warmth and generosity
Pros: Friendly staff and great food. Located near the two major towns so easy access to amenities. The room had a wonderful view over Pelican Bay.
Cons: The rooms are quite small could be modernized .
Pros: The view
