Our room was roomy & clean, with fantastic views over Stanley and 'The Nut'. The service was very good, receptionist went out of her way to help with our request for fresh milk and directions. While the motel is out of Stanley a little, the position is fantastic in a very quiet location! Stanley is a delightful little place with... More

Very nice and tidy place to stay. Awesome view of the nut. Pleasant check in, and a good continental breakfast. Thank you for a great stay, we will tell our friends and family if they go to Stanley to stay here.

We only stayed one night in a family room but it was a nice stay. Reception staff were super friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and with all mod cons. Awesome views of the nut and surrounds. It's not central though and is a 15-20min walk to town.

Stanley Seaview Inn has a magnificent location up on the hill looking across to the huge geological formation locally known as "The Nut". Yes you can also see the sea! My room was a Suite and was quite large with a King size bed and huge spa in the bathroom. The view across the valley towards the Nut is picturesque.... More

Loved our room, the view was awesome overlooking the meadows with sheep and cows then further on there was the beach. I liked being a little away from the town, only 2 mins in the car. Was super clean. Loved the bath, large TV, balcony and good kids play equipment right next to our flat. Would stay there again.

The room we stayed in had been updated a bit, single beds were way too small for my 15 year old son, but quite ok. Just needs a bit more TLC i.e. tv remote batteries stuck in with stickytape as back was missing. I was a bit disappointed when I booked the 3 night "special" for $470, and then found... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit at the front. It was comfortable and well set out with the most beautiful views of the Nut and the sea over rustic farm paddocks from the lounge and main bedroom. Although first night was windy and wild it was private, very peaceful and relaxing. We could make our own meals and come... More
