A great location, quiet and peaceful, good sea sounds through the night. Plenty of penguins (plus their odd noises) which were great. Room clean and well serviced. Breakfast excellent, especially with the view and parade of penguins. Would return.

This rustic hotel is located right next to the entrance to the penguin colony. The food at the restaurant is good and reasonably priced. There's a cute gift shop with a giant penguin standing guard. Although the gift shop inside the park offers many more items. The night we arrived we were thrilled to see a penguin hopping up the... More

Stayed here as part of my birthday trip with my partner and booked the upper deck rooms - and I really liked it! I'd recommend these over the lower as they allow a lot more light in and catch the late afternoon sun on the balcony. The location is directly on boulders beach boardwalk entrance and you can see penguins... More

Location is oke and the food very good. But ... because of the pinguins in the garden right next to the rooms you can't sleep because of the noise they produce! They let us pay after dinner and we complained the next morning. The management promissed to react to us but we never heard something! 50% of the price would... More

We stayed in the Seview family suite for one night with our 5 and 9 year old daughters. The hotel is perfectly situated on Boulders Beach if you are looking to be close to the penguins (which was our reason for choosing this hotel). Whilst the location was perfect, the hotel is very tired and is well due a refurb.... More

This lodge has only one thing going for it: the location. Upon arrival we were met by a very unfriendly and unhelpful lady who at first couldn't find our booking, then informed us that we would be in a twin room instead of the double room we booked. The room was extremely small! The shower temperature and pressure changed constantly,... More

Lovely surroundings, perfect view, beautiful rooms with fantastic bathroom. Excellent service - very friendly and helpful staff. The only issue was the penguins waking us up with their hilarious calls in the middle of the night!
