View etc great. The reception from the waiter who booked us in was not very friendly ( no welcome etc ) and so it continued all evening. No internet available to us although promised on booking. Reserved table was in Bistro under a dripping air conditioner. When I tried to make a change of tables got a snooty answer "... More

We stayed 3 nights over Xmas and were pleasantly surprised with the entertainment! Very jolly guy played guitar for Xmas lunch and Jazz band on lawns played on Boxing Day evening.(We returned in time for a dance on the lawn with only one other couple!) Sadly the food was awful - like institutional catering so only took the Xmas lunch... More

We are quite surprised by some recent reviewers, who were obviously disappointed. We stayed early in December, before the busy Christmas season, and were very pleased to find the hotel not busy. On arrival, we found the staff very friendly and some excellent flowers and sparkling wine had been put in our room for our wedding anniversary that day. The... More

unlike most of the recent views I was actually very pleased with the service and absolutely loved the rooms. As knowing the pressure of being a cleaner from experience I know all the hard work that goes into having a nice clean room and appreciate the time and effort of those who do this job as it is a very...

Stopped for one night whilst driving up the coast. The Seahorse Inn is easy to find when driving north on the Princes Hwy as well signed. Less easy to find if travelling South. Found the reception desk unstaffed so went to the bar. The bar maid dealt with check in and I got a small double with an amazing balcony... More

The hotel is a fine building located in a sensational location with superb views and gorgeous grounds. I spoke to the gardener; congratulating him on what a great job he's doing. But so many other opportunities are going begging. The front of house reception was disinterested (and another guest made exactly the same comment.) Room cleaning included putting a "sanitized"...

Unique property but not properly maintained[eg collection of dead flies next to the window in the dining room which were not removed during our stay] and some staff surly and unhelpful. . Despite having their own vegie garden ,strawberries left to go rotten and available produce grown in the garden were obviously not used. When questioned about strawberries told were... More

We walked around the 1840s Seahorse Inn when it was a construction site nine years ago. Set in lovely grounds looking out onto Twofold Bay, the original inn has been sympathetically extended to include a second floor, bistro at one end and dining room at the other. The public areas - cocktail lounge, bar, dining room and bistro and outdoor... More

Let me start by saying this is a wonderful location for a romantic weekend away. There is little bad one can say about it USUALLY, the service, the location and the wonderful old world charm is second to none. However on our most recent stay (July) there were a few issues with the state of our room & bathroom. It... More

This is a beautiful hotel in a stunningly beautiful location. It has views across Twofold Bay to the ocean, with Eden on the other side of the bay. It is very quiet (at this time of year anyway), as the hotel only has 10 rooms and is away from the town. The common areas: the bar, lounge, dining areas, outside... More
