Greeted by friendly staff who directed us to our table. Place had a great atmosphere right next to the beach. Our meals arrived at the same time. I ordered the linguini which was delicious, filled with prawns and scallops and hubby enjoyed his steak. We will be returning for another meal soon.

Just 8 kilometres south of Eden is the SEAHORSE INN at Boydtown, a tiny town of 75 people on the NSW Victorian border. We had the pleasure of staying in a Family Suite. The location is incredible and the views sublime over the magnificent Twofold Bay and beach. It’s a history buffs dream staying here, with the original Inn being built by Benjamin Boyd in 1893 (a wealthy and remarkable London entrepreneurial stockbroker ) Built of Pyrmont sandstone by convicts, it sadly fell into disrepair when Boyd left town and was actually never completed. Bought in 1936 by the Whiter family, a second floor was added to the building. 1980 saw more renovation, and the last major reno was 2002. Its immaculate restoration has retained all the charm and elegance of yesteryear. The grand staircase from reception takes you to the 6 upstairs suites and there are 4 garden suites downstairs. But the stained glass and wood carvings of the buildings past life are the real gems. There is NOTHING that’s been forgotten in the hugely spacious suites. The paintwork is soft taupe and white tones throughout, the beds are uber comfortable, there’s crisp white linen and towels and luxury toiletries. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and the manicured lawns and gardens are too pretty. There’s loads of parking also. Minibar, TV’s (that work) in every bedroom and the sound of the waves as you nod off. We couldn’t fault anything with housekeeping. The rooms were spotless throughout and the entire property totally exceeded all expectations……………..HOWEVER…………….. I wish I could give 5 stars to the Dining!!!!!!! As the Dining Room was closed, our only option for dinner was the Brasserie, so with a booking we arrived excited, and hungry for “ fresh local seafood” and “fine wine”. We got neither. Wanting some service after 10 minutes at the table, we waved down a team member who pointed to the bar for the menu and any drinks we required. Sadly the barman had no idea of the drink selection and was more interested in watching the NEWS than serving us. The service from placing the order to receiving dinner was long and slow and certainly came as a shock in the lap of 5 star luxury upstairs. NOTHING on the Special board was available and we settled on Cajun prawns, Arancini, and Oysters Kilpatrick for entrees and steaks for mains.( Again we had to order with the barman) AWFUL doesn’t even come close to what we thought of EVERY dish. The frozen Arancini was barely deep fried and was on seeded mustard!!!! The frozen prawns were microwaved and bottled honey sauce covered them!!!! The oysters were covered in BBQ sauce!!!! AND the chef, ( sorry, person preparing the meals ) doubled as the wait person running meals to tables. The look on our faces when the meals arrived had the couple at the adjoining table laughing. THEN, just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse…………………. Our entrée plates were removed, with the waiter leaving the used entrée cutlery for our mains!!!!!!! When we asked politely for clean cutlery for our mains, the waiter became agitated, and with “attitude” returned slamming clean cutlery on the table. And as for the steaks……….TOTALLY inedible.( the BLUE steak came Medium- Well) After two bites of mains we all decided perhaps a trip to the closest Service Station for a Magnum might suffice for sweets. And we didn’t dare ask for a coffee. Even getting water for the table was an issue, and again had our neighbours amused. This Brasserie is NOT cheap either ( $65 for crayfish mornay!!! Thank the Lord they had none) In Summary: Management urgently needs to put time into the Brasserie or CLOSE IT. The food presently being served there is a total disgrace and the prices are exorbitant for what’s on the plate. Staff also need training and a smile wouldn’t go astray. Screaming at the kitchen staff across the room, wiping tables down with a putrid cloth and then running out meals with the cloth underneath the plates just doesn’t cut it. This charming, quaint, luxury boutique hotel deserves an equally good restaurant asap. This completely spoilt our stay with you sadly. Yes, it was a “memorable and unforgettable experience “ but for all the wrong reasons.

We stayed at the Seahorse from the 1st November for three nights on a Life's an Adventure package and I just wanted to express my appreciation for the service and support we received over the three nights. The staff were always cooperative friendly and pleasant, the meals first class adt the accommodation was 5 star. We also very much appreciated Shantell looking after our transport arrangements and although we did not get to Green Cape Lighthouse because of the weather her great suggestions on the last day were much appreciated. All in all a great few days and I wish the team a busy and profitable 2021/2022 season.

Came here for lunch as we drove to check out historic Boydtown. Strangely the restaurant didn't take any NSW Dine & Discover vouchers. We bought lunch and drinks and sat outside. It felt very calm and peaceful. The view looks out to a vast green space and then a beach close by.

The staff are brilliant. They are happy to help and are just wonderful to talk to. You have to try the restaurant the food is levels about magnificent. You MUST try the fresh mussels in the tomato broth. In fact try everything. The food is just so fresh. I have never felt so relaxed. The views are magical and gardens well maintained. Great to see the place so busy during these challenging times.
