Welcome to the Penneshaw Hotel, Kangaroo Island.

"Is Penneshaw Hotel the only hotel in the world where you can have a beer and look at Australia?"

The Penneshaw Hotel has commanding and uninterrupted views over Backstairs Passage with absolute water frontage from a cliff-top and the spacious tiered outdoor dining and lounge area offers unsurpassed opportunities to enjoy this view. The historic hotel is making the most of its prime position with major internal and external renovations. 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 with modern alfresco furniture. From the moment you step through the doors, you will be greeted with an ambience of relaxed friendliness and true Australiana.
