It is nestled amongst a grove of trees and in close proximity to everything. A morning walk to the beach was lovely. The kitchen was always open for drinks, coffee, snacks and wine. Bathrobes and a fireplace in the room were special touches. Lovely staff always ready to help with anything

For the price the bathrooms were a little disappointing. They were very clean but not updated. A nice soaking tub or hot tub on the premises would’ve been a nice amenity. The room rate increased $200 from Thurs to Saturday so beware - somehow we missed that detail when booking through a third party.

Ok their job is to spoil you and are they well trained... you will not want to leave this little paradise. Just the backyard is an experience. You are forced to relax just what we needed. We were towing a 17ft trailer with our Harley Davidsons in it and plenty of room to park at that time, but had extended parking available. Breakfast made you feel good because you were eating good.

That we had to leave.... the quiet environment made is easy to relax. Great walking paths and views to photograph. As a professional full time photographer this was a treat for me.

The location is amazing, just a very short walk to the beach. The property is gorgeous with lots of wildlife and beautiful landscaping. The Inn was very clean and smelled so delicious when we entered. The included breakfast had many options and was delivered to our room. Fresh muffins, homemade granola, blackberry jam, wine tasting in the evening! We couldn't have asked for a better stay. Fireplace in the room, very cozy, parking lot is close. Absolutely recommend this Inn if you want a relaxing stay at the beach. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The only negative (and this is being nit-picky) is the low amount of TV cable channels.

It was such a peaceful and relaxing getaway, we loved everything, so cozy, and the staff was sweet. Perfect stay for someone who is looking to relax and enjoy quiet time alone Loved the location and peaceful outdoor garden. Beautiful trail to walk to the beach, breathtaking view Room was nice and clean, fireplace in the room was cozy to have in the evening. In a hallway good coffee and complimentary drinks

The only down side the mattress was kinda hard, my back was hurting in the morning. But that could be different for everyone

The Inn was beautifully landscaped, well decorated, the rooms were quiet and elegant. there was a nice touch of a always available coffee machine. THe location was quiet and close to the Fitzgerald Marine reserve. There were several excellent restaurants nearby.

The mood of most of the staff was of a non-smiling school teacher. There seemed to be much confusion over ordering breakfast: the order we placed the first day seemed to be law. Any change threw them into an unpleasant tizzy. That said, the breakfast was high quality, but strictly cold items only. Different shampoo would be an improvement.

The Seal Cove Inn is located in such a dreamy location. We've been there twice in the winter when its foggy or rainy, and it's always magical. The inn is comfortable, clean and cozy. We spent time reading in front of the fireplace, in the garden and walking around the nature preserve towards the coast. The breakfast is lovely too, quality and simple. We had the eggs, ham and baked good both days and yogurt one of the days. There is also an espresso machine and tea bar downstairs for use anytime you like, and complimentary beverages upstairs.

Seal Cove Inn is a gorgeous, immaculate, B&B. The staff person greeting us was so personable, helpful, informative. The reserve nearby is gorgeous. I fell in love with this Inn 26 years ago but this was my first time back. It was as upscale and gorgeous as I remembered it after all of these years despite being under new ownership. Love the fireplace in the room and could go on and on about what I love about this special Inn.

I enjoy a fully hot breakfast (they did warm my muffins/croissant) and miss the days when a B&B meant joining fellow guests for breakfast but realize this isn’t viable with Covid. The breakfast provided was still wonderful and they delivered to our room. Cheese and crackers with the evening wine would be a nice touch. But really no complaints. What I don’t like the most is it is far enough from home that I can’t visit regularly but I hope to be back soon!

So many things. We loved the reception welcome and explanation of services. The room was big and comfortable and had seating outside. We loved meeting for the complimentary wine at 5 -6pm. So generous. The complimentary coffee/ tea/ cold drink and cookies were really welcome. The location is fantastic- near the Pacific Ocean. Fabulous coastal walks in either direction. Quaint old distillery that is now a restaurant. 5 mins. Walking from hotel. Lovely food and service with beautiful sea views. To top it all we never expected to see flocks of herons- magical.

All lovely nothing to dislike.

Although the options for breakfast was nice, it would have been good to have a warm option for breakfast. For example omelettes, scrambled eggs, toast especially as there were staff on site. The room was lovely, elegant and spacious, the bed was super comfey. There was a lovely walk through the woods to the beach or you could walk the trail down to the beach. There was always a warm welcome when you returned to the Inn with a lovely roaring fire and complimentary glass of wine or two to warm you up from a brisk walk.

The issue we had and it’s not a complaint but only a suggestion, we were only at Seal Cove for 3 nights but we literally lived out of the suitcase as there were only 4 coat hangers in total in the wardrobe and there were no bedside drawers or chest of drawers for your small items of clothing. If it was a longer stay I could see this being a bit of an issue for us. There were plenty of tables in the room but this extra bit of furniture would have been useful.
