“Great place! Cozy and very well maintained”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013 via mobile

Decided to stay here based on TripAdvisor reviews. After the first interaction with Caroline to reserve rooms we knew this was the place we wanted to head to, you could feel the genuine warmth and care she had for people. It reflects in how well the property has been maintained.

5 star rating for everything - location, proximity to places & beach, cleanliness (room & towels), Wi-Fi (was able to watch streaming videos without delay), breakfast (small spread of continental but nice), their rates and the owners! Hannah, their dog, also needs a mention, she was at peace around everyone and was so playful!

Nice memories from this place, will definitely visit again.

Stayed May 2013

Thank you so much. That is what vacation is all about isn’t it? Making memories, and what better place to do so than at a unique dwelling like 7 Seas Inn? We are glad you enjoyed your stay and Hannah has her ball all ready for the next toss!

7 Seas Inn is a find! I have stayed in other hotels on the same street and this hotel is by far the best. The room is clean, sound proof to other rooms, has a nice breakfast, and friendly and helpful staff. The room also includes some amenities that just make your stay nicer (in my room there were complimentary advil and rags for boots). Make sure you ask the front desk for suggestions on restaurants - they know the best places in town! 100% recommend to any first time visitors or seasoned travelers.

Very nice place run by very friendly and helpful people. Good location as we were there to run the marathon. Close to expo and buses to bring you to the start.
Nice location in good setting among the trees and quiet road. Room a bit small, but OK for the price. Breakfast was good although you must bring it back to your room. Having a fridge and microwave was great, although wished they had a coffee maker in the room to make fresh coffee.
Enjoyed the gas fireplace in the room as night in SLT in Sept can be chilly.
Everything was very clean.

This was one of most pleasant places I've stayed in. It was nice to get a text staing our room was ready hours early. The location was perfect. I loved that it is dog friendly. The place is cute. I liked its character. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. I also thought it was cool that they provided some toiletries I had forgot to grab (shaving cream:-))

We chose this hotel based on the reviews. Impressive that I received a text re ETA, and that it was a beautiful day. The property is tastefully situated in pine trees, even preserving one on the edge of the parking lot. Friendly check in. Room with 2 queen beds small, tight. Bathroom and shower small. Shower floor appeared adequately soiled that I ran hot water for several minutes in attempt to sanitize, floor was actually cleaner afterwards. Smelling the morning bathroom aroma from the adjacent room was disgusting!! This ranks #5 SLT hotels, HOW? and how bad can the rest lower ranked hotels be?

At the beginning of October, night temperatures were hovering just above freezing point, so we were glad to have a gas-fired fireplace in our small room, giving it a cozy feel. The furniture is rather old, but the TV is a modern flat-screen TV. The continental breakfast has to be picked up at reception and eaten in one' s room. We asked for a quiet room, so ours was the last one in a row on the first (ground) floor.( It was rather dark) Unfortunately, the floor boards above us creaked quite a lot, so any sense of quietness soon disappeared when the folk upstairs moved in. There was a (loud) fridge and a microwave oven in the room. For the price paid we felt that seven seas offered good value, but I wouldn' t necessarily recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: As the floors creak, the upper rooms are probably quieter.
