We stayed here for just one night in 2014 as a stop off whilst driving the coast on our honeymoon. We completely fell in love with it and we were so sad it was just one night that we flew back in Sept 2015 to stay for longer! It's absolutely perfect. Beautiful location, breath taking views. You can sit in... More

Seven Gables has a great Location, nicely furnished, our room overlooked the ocean. Breakfast is average for a B&B, wine and cheese was average for a B&B, many small rooms, everyone spread out, not a lot of chatting.

We loved this Bed & Breakfast and the staff was excellent. The location was beautiful and the views were wonderful. We stayed in the Rocky Shores room which is on the top floor with no other rooms on this floor. You have the floor all to your self and the staff was very helpful in carrying our luggage up to...

My husband and I stayed at the place after ignoring a few bad reviews on trip advisor. We only stay at 4.5-5 star hotels. This was our very first experience at a bed and breakfast. We were shown a few rooms, two of which had an awful smell (mold/ pollutant) that is extremely evident when you walk in the rooms.... More

This B & B is a wonderful slice of heaven. Situated on rocky ocean shores, the inn is just across from a winding walking path that travels along the shoreline. Relaxing walks almost any time of the day brush away the stresses of life! What I liked most were the personable staff. They are knowledgable of the Inn's history and... More

We recently spent two nights here and enjoyed the place immensely. This B&B is larger than most, with about 25 rooms spread across several buildings. The rooms are beautifully furnished, in our case (the Stevenson Room) with a king bed, two comfortable stuffed chairs and coffee table, dresser and armoire. With all that big furniture the room was a bit... More

Nested on the ocean front facing the Monterrey bay, The Seven Gables immediately stands out from its surrounding with a mansion look and bright colour. The house is impeccable, inside out. There is not a single detail showing a lack of maintenance. The interior is unique with large rugs, classical furniture, mostly in marquetry, and numerous bronze statues and Art... More

Breakfast had a great variety of breads, fruits, drinks and fresh cooked items every day. The afternoon cocktail hour was wonderful as well.

I really wanted to give this place 5 stars...honestly! However their customer service is downright APPALLING so I wish I could give them ZERO stars. My husband and I were taking a few days off to celebrate our anniversary. We traveled with another couple (who separately had terrible experiences with this venue) as well.
