Fabulous old stone hotel right on the bay. History is interesting in the area - there are lots to explore including historic sites like Boyd's tower (used for sighting whales for the whalers) and the old Davidson Whaling station site. Eden is just a short drive, but the charm of this place is its location, great bar and two restaurants.... More

We stayed here for just one night and it was lovely - very quiet - great bed, lovely food, and the location is remarkable, you feel like you are a guest in an English stately home by the sea... We had the continental breakfast sitting in a wonderful stained glass bay window with a view out to the lawn and... More

If you are looking for a tranquil escape by the sea this is a great place The upstairs out look across an almost natural bay that is visited by few and kept secret by those who appreciate and enjoy its tranquility. In reality a few minutes drive from extra resources and pleasantries in the Eden and ambulance area but at... More

Recently stayed for 1 night and this hotel, quality of food, and standard of service is absolutely AWESOME! Dinner at Bettena's was fantastic! Julie, the chef, and Shannon, the waiter, provided a wonderful dining experience. We were left alone to enjoy our evening. My scallop and prosciutto entree was sensational and my lamb ragu gnocchi was wonderful. A light continental... More

My partner stayed at The Seahorse Inn 30 years ago, he was astonished at the refurbishment and improvements that have been made. Our room was up stairs, very comfortable and roomy. Continental breakfast was included, staff very helpful.

We stayed for 1 night and the overall was nice. The room was big clean and good level of amenities . Bed was enormous. Staff was friendly but seems that the organisation on low season is too be reviewed. We explained that will do a late check in as arriving from far and we discover that the waitress who was... More

We recently had dinner at the Brasserie. The waitress took our orders, my husband ordered steak, whilst she asked how he would like it cooked, she didn't ask whether he wanted it with salad and chips or vegetables. He had to go up to the servery and tell the chef who was very pleasant and accommodating. When our bottle of... More

We have stayed at the adjacent caravan park and eaten and drunk at the Seahorse Inn on several occasions, most recently this week. The location is stunning, the food and bar were well above average, and the facilities were excellent. We spent Easter lunch there, with a jumping castle and egg-hunts for the kids. It was just lovely. The adjacent... More

We booked this hotel and as we drove in we were not disappointed. The building dates back to 1843 but has been well maintained and is set in very pretty grounds. The room we were allocated, was on the ground floor and had a small private terrace accessed through French doors. I can't help but comment upon the totally excellent... More

Rachel who was a stand in Receptionist, was great, but the real one was cold and brisk. The lunch was ok but we stayed for the evening meal in the Brasserie which was really bad quality food and when we complained we could hear the Receptionist/ manager say "Just put it down to them being Poms". Unprofessional is not the... More
