Absolutely one of the best holiday accommodations we have ever stayed in. It's immaculate, public rooms, bedrooms, links, passageways and gardens are so, so, clean. The staff are all lovely, nothing is too much trouble and they just want to help. All the main rooms overlook the bay and don't be surprised if you see a Sea Otter, Dolphin or...

Dear Guests, We thank you for your kind review of your recent stay at Seven Gables. Much of the year we see a truly amazing variety of sea life including whales, dolphins, sea otters, sea lions, all sorts of seabirds and an occasional white heron perched on the seaweed which you enjoyed during your visit. Thank your for specifically acknowledging...

The staff was incredibly attentive and friendly. The hotel was beautiful, immaculate, conveniently located, picturesque. It was possibly the most restful place I have ever stayed. The bed was definitely the most comfortable bed I have slept in! I hope I get to stay there again!

Stay here. Don't screw around with overpriced hotels when you can get a room with a spectacular view a great breakfast to start the day and some of the nicest people in town. Oh, and the wine and snacks before dinner are nice added touch. This is a very cool place and convenient to Monterey and Carmel. My wife and...

Everything about this place was great. The location, the room, the staff, the food, the view. Even the sheets on the amazingly comfortable bed. We stayed in the 'Gable Room' which is at the highest point on the third floor. It's a quaint room, very clean and of course has an incredible view of Lovers Point. We will be back.

Living on the East coast, we don't get out to Northern California very often. So when we had a chance to stay again at the Seven Gables Inn we took it without a second thought. The Seven Gables Inn remains one of our favorite places to stay in the world, and we have stayed at many places. From the outstanding...

We found this B&B online and decided to take a chance based on the reviews and the pics online. What a great choice! The best comment I can make is that Seven Gables Inn is everything we hoped it would be. We stayed in the Arbor Room which had a spectacular view of Monterey Bay. The room, although smaller than...

The inn is probably priced above most travelers' budgets, but it's worth it for a couple of nights at least. Our room was cozy, but beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. The staff is superb, the breakfast--overlooking Monterey Bay--is very good, and the wine and cheese event each afternoon is an excellent way to start the evening. If you're hesitant, it's...

Our room was cozy and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. There was an excellent wine and cheese happy hour and milk and cookies before bed. We could not have enjoyed our stay more. Definitely looking forward to returning in the future. Great for a cozy, couple trip.

We were a group of 5 so stayed in Jewel Cottage which was just fabulous. Probably didn't socialize as much as we should have as we had so much space to ourselves. Even the fold out bed received rave reviews from my 6'3" son! Everything was beautiful and with so many extras the cost really was value for money.
