We were upgraded to the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom self contained unit with our 3 month old baby. Rooms have been renovated recently and are looking good. Quiet motel, clean, modern and great size. The pool is awesome. Easy walk to the beach and a good walk from the pizza and ice cream shop! Hosts are great.

Good clean rooms, free wifi, swimming pool had ducks swimming on it, not sure that's a good thing! The whole place was spotless, reception very helpful indeed. Because its a motel, rooms are right by car park, can be a bit noisy hence the missing star, but not really a problem

Great location, one street from the main street. Check-in was a pleasant surprise with an upgrade of room as we were three adults and the Manager thought we could do with a little extra room. Motel is quiet at night which means sound sleep. Twenty minute drive to the Penguin Parade and a little extra to the Nobbies. We really...

The place was very nice and clean which was the most interesting thing to us. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The motel doesn't offer some items like toothbrush which was a bit of surprise to me. Generally, I recommend it

The Seahorse Motel is located in quiet suburbs, close to the town centre. It has a classic motel style: you drive your car to your room door. The grounds looked very well maintained, very clean with a swimming pool and BBQ area. The reception was very friendly and helpful. Our room was large with double queen size bed plus single...

Lovely clean, modern, very spacious, well equipped apartment. Great welcome from the proprietors, friendly and helpful. It's a shame that we only booked a stopover, it is a good place to chill with a quiet, relaxed atmosphere

The Seahorse motel is just awesome! I really love the location (quiet and close to town) and the room (enormous with a huge six seater couch and jumbo telly). There is an allocated car parking space per room. The bed is very comfortable and the pool area is nice. I would recommend staying here! Wifi is only $2 per person...

Booked this motel for just one night via the Tourist Information for $ 135 in November 2016 as we were visiting the penguins parade. We had a really lovely self contained unit which had everything you could need at a fairly high standard and very clean. We were more than pleased and would have booked a week, if we had...

A very friendly welcome at check in started off an excellent stay. The room was exceptionally large, and comfortably furnished. The motel pool looked excellent although we didn't have time to use it. The location is good,with the local amenities of Cowes close by, and penguin parade is only 10-15 minute drive away.
