Penneshaw Hotel


The Penneshaw Hotel on Kangaroo Island has commanding and uninterrupted views over Backstairs Passage with absolute water frontage from a cliff-top. Country hotel hospitality with outdoor alfresco and bar area offers unsurpassed opportunities to enjoy this view.

Glass walls at the front of the outdoor area and large windows opening to the sea air capture the light and view for all diners in all weather.

The hotel prides itself as a family destination. A Kids meals includes a main course and soft drink.

Penny's Restaurant is definitely a cut above - of course there is a schnitzel on the menu, but the Chefs create modern Australian cuisine using as much local produce as possible to produce a wonderful menu.

The rustic charms of the front bar and dining areas are the perfect place to while away a Sunday afternoon or wait for your ferry to the mainland in the friendly, comfortable atmosphere.
