While Stanley is an old seaport & fishing village, there is not a lot of accommodation of a high standard in the area. However we found the Stanley Seaview Inn very nice and clean. The receptionist was most helpful with advice on where to go for dinner, as the Inn's restaurant was closed. Next trip back in that area, we... More

We stayed at the in the family room, had plenty of beds, excellent views probably the best in Stanley, walking distance to town, free wifi . Couldn't complain about anything. Although it would have been nice if the restaurant and bar was open would have been great to enjoy a meal an a couple of drinks with that view, not... More

Hello and thank you for this very nice review!! We have not operated a restaurant for over a year now. I agree that it would be convenient for guests if we did still have a restaurant, but for a little town like Stanley, 7 or 8 restaurants is just too many for the amount of patrons to go around. On...

Very friendly and accommodating from booking through to checkout. It has been over 12 months since our last stay - the renovations are terrific, the rooms are extremely comfortable and practical. Already looking forward to our next stay.

Stanley Seaview Inn is on the side of a hill with a great view of The Nut. We stayed for 1 night and we were upgraded to larger room for extra $12.50 which ended up being a family room so therefore there was plenty of room with a kitchenette in which we found helpful to prepare our dinner. We decided... More

Stayed in March on a business trip. Noted there was Wi-fi but no mention of it when we arrived. Did not use it as is the case with a lot of Motels it was not well set up. There were 2 or 3 Access points but all were set to the same channel so communication would have been congested. I... More

It is unbelievable what some people will complain about! You have broken new ground here. We have been giving away fast reliable, FREE and unrestricted wifi for years now andthis is the first I have heard of this - what must be the latest groundbreaking new possible customer complaint - the channel that the wifi is on.

Unfortunately these rooms did not live up to expectations. The TV screen was really small and the remote did not work from as close as our bed. We had to move to within inches of the TV screen for it to work. The car parking was difficult and, unless we parked a long way from the room, we could not... More

Too bad you didn't let us know about the remote control. The batteries were flat, and so this could have been rectified very easily rather than you choosing to degrade our property to the world like this. As for the ceilings and parking arrangements, I urge TripAdisor viewers to read our other reviews, and see whether anyone else has had... More

Stayed here for one night. Called ahead and the male on the phone was very helpful with booking the room and assistance with where to eat for the night. I would highly recommend Tall Timbers in Smithton for dinner. Was fantastic. Rooms were spacious, newly renovated, and comfy. Fantastic price for what you get. Stay here for sure!!!!
