Been visiting King Island for 10 years now and stay at no other place as the location is GOLD, unlike anywhere else on earth, it truelly is paradise on earth, but stayed there of late and need to say the place needs a major face lift and a good clean. Furniture that was there from my first visit is still there along with the tired pots and pans. Little things like a bowl of flowers are no longer there on your welcome and I noticed a "smell" in the place which kept me awake on my first night there. I recomment it as the location is gorgeous, but the place does look tired. Sadly.
