With 77 rooms, the Aurora Ozone Hotel is the Island’s largest accommodation and its seafront location provides sea views for dining and function spaces and most rooms. Located within easy walking distance of shops, galleries and alternative dining options to the in-house bistro. Facilities include a gym, pool, ATM and free guest wifi.
Located in Kingscote on the foreshore overlooking Nepean Bay, this 4 star hotel is just 15 minutes from the Kingscote airport, or 45 minutes from the ferry terminal in Penneshaw. Kingscote is South Australia’s oldest European settlement and the island’s largest town. Kingscote is the commercial hub of Kangaroo Island and contains most of the Island’s shops, cafes, galleries, the medical clinic, pharmacy and hospital. The Ozone is a short walk from the wharf which is home to the Island’s fishing fleet and often has a few long-nosed fur-seals lazing about on the rocks.
The original section of the hotel retains a Victorian facade and old world charm typical of many Australian seaside hotels. There is a newer building constructed across the road from the main hotel and these rooms are quite contemporary in design. This is the largest property on the Island and often used as the accommodation venue for groups, with a variety of room types making up the total of 77 rooms.
The property has a large bistro open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and there is a selection of meeting and function spaces in the hotel used for corporate clients as well as groups wanting a private dinner with a guest speaker.
The Executive Sea View Rooms have sea views out to Nepean Bay and Kingscote Wharf from the balcony or private terrace. Situated on the ground and first floor, all rooms feature a king bed and ensuite bathroom. Many also have an additional single bed, if twin or triple share configuration is required.
Other room types include two bedroom Penthouse Apartments, one, two and three bedroom apartments and Executive rooms with faux balconies. Other facilities on the property include: outdoor pool, gym, guest laundry, ATM, and in-room dining.
