We were greeted on arrival by a friendly and informative receptionist. Our room was lovely and clean, spacious with a King size very comfy bed. What a view from our large window! Bathroom was shining and clean, even had a hair dryer. Happy with the price of the room, will stay again. The outside garden was paved and a swimming pool in a tropical looking setting, really nice. Great pizzas in the restaurant.

All the right ingredients but missing the Mark ”

Self rated as 4 star but really far from it. Location and view amazing. But then no wine glasses, cups with no saucers - so give a mug then. No chopping board - even a small plastic one - with a smallserated knife to cut a tomato or a lemon, nothing means you have to chop on the bench. Plates size didn’t even match, so looked like secondhand crockery cutlery and glassware, like no one cares. Handle fell off the hand basin. Towels were like cardboard. Wouldn’t take much to lift their game, but does need someone who cares about the guest experience to probably stay in one of the rooms themselves and see what is missing

During our 6 nights at Seafront, we stayed in a Garden Villa. These villas are great value for money. Situated in a beautiful garden area, these villas were build with a Bali feel. Reception staff were extremely friendly and house keeping staff went above and beyond and were also extremely friendly. Seafront is situated in beautiful Penneshaw, surrounded with everything you need and only about 500 meters away from the Ferry depot. We really enjoyed our stay.

Ideal for the ferry”

We had a lovely time here, it's ideally based if you want to be close to the ferry terminal, it's within walking distance. We had a villa which are located to the rear of the main hotel. It was clean and functional offering self catering facilities, with a supermarket within walking distance. The only thing I would say as being from the UK, we underestimate the distances involved for visiting the attractions on the island. It's quite a trek each day to reach somewhere different. Perhaps next time I would position myself elsewhere, somewhere more central. Nether the less we had a good time and I would certainly reccomend this hotel if you want to stay in Penneshaw.

Near ferry, sea view, good room

We stayed one night - arrived late and left early so didn't use any facilities or eat breakfast. However we had dinner at the Penneshaw hotel next door which has the same owner and had a good meal with very friendly staff. Our seaview room was great - nothing flash but large, comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. There was a nice cafe round the corner which was unfortunately closed on the Wednesday that would have been good for breakfast but the local supermarket was very well-stocked. Very handy for the penguins (there are very few left) and the ferry.

We did not have much time at the Hotel but the breakfast menu and room looked terrific, only sorry we didn't have time to enjoy.
