We loved our two night stay here in Stanley. The host is most helpful, the rooms (we had a two bedroom 'apartment') are fantastic and with superb views over Stanley and 'The Nut'. Comfortable beds and warmly heated. Being self contained made it even more attractive. You do need a car to get from this accommodation to the town centre... More

Stanley Seaview Inn rates tops, in rooms, service, comfort and view. Could not ask for more. Watching the sun rising and setting adding a different perspective of the view all from your room of the township and The Nut.

Stayed two nights at the Seaview Inn. Beaut two bedroom villa with balcony. Basic, honest accommodation that is good value for money but needing the touches of a handyman, blown bulb, 2nd TV only has two channels. Web site and brochures at info centre show a restaurant at Seaview Inn, Nah, it's closed down. Too far to walk into Stanley... More

Overall we found our room to be of good standard and value for money . A few maintenance jobs needed - the door into the main room needs adjusting, it drags and cannot be fully closed. The globe in the entrance has blown or is not working. The kitchenette includes a microwave but is not equipped with any microwave utensils/bowls.... More

The seaview inn was wonderful place to stay - shame the restaurant is closed but the accommodation itself if great and good value . Highly recommend it .Make sure you get a room with a view and a balcony .The nut the town and the sea eagles are all worth watching on a quiet morning while eating breakfast.

Unfortunately Stanley seems to close in winter but after talking to out host we were given a lot if helpful information and spent 2 very enjoyable days. Our room was clean and very cosy we loved the design of the room. Would recommend this hotel to friends visiting Stanley.

We recently returned from our first trip to Stanley and plan to return! Loved the Seaview so much! Clint is very informed and helpful, the room was clean and warm (essential in mid July). There was a fun playground for the kids, breakfast available...I could go on...but the most spectacular think about the Seaview for us? The VIEW! This is... More

WOW!! What a wonderful review :) Thank you so much. I am thrilled that you found our property and Stanley so enjoyable. We will keep working on the businesses that close over winter, but thankfully we live in a place where business owners are free to operate when ever they choose. Thanks again, Clint. More

We were late arriving and the owners kindly left a welcome note and the key to our room easy to find. We were made feel very welcome and the room was clean & warm. However the breakfast prices (which we didn't avail of) was very expensive and the room itself we felfcould definitely do with an update, not so much... More

Thanks very much Kevin. This is a great review for us. Our restaurant has been closed for 16 months now - and we have tried to remove any reference about it from the entire market place, so that people don't expect an on-site restaurant. If you can remember where you saw a reference to us having a restaurant, I would... More
