We chose Seine Boat Inn for our anniversary get away. It was even better than we imagined. Our room was literally right on the ocean with a private deck. It was equipped with everything we needed. Very clean, nice linens & towels and a lovely rustic charm. The TV wasn’t working so if TV is important ask ahead of the visit. The owner was so welcoming and friendly. We highly recommend this charming Inn.

My husband and I spent two nights this summer in the Panoramic King room in this wonderful inn located in picturesque Alert Bay. The Seine Boat Inn is situated on the waterfront and our room had a spectacular 180 degree view of the ocean with a large private deck. The room was spacious, well equipped, tastefully decorated and very clean. Both Colin and TerryLynn were wonderful hosts. We would highly recommend the Seine Boat Inn to anyone that is going to Alert Bay.

We stayed in #106 for 3 nights. The view is outstanding. So many windows that inside feels like outside. We watched the ferries come and go, many eagles, and also saw a seal off the deck. Kitchen is sufficient, bathroom is a good size. Bed and linens were super comfy. We used the BBQ a couple of nights - super convenient. Liked the wood ambiance. Felt rustic and cozy. The other rooms on the main floor have a beautiful deck filled with flowers and a partial ocean view. I think the only (minor) drawback was when 105 was occupied next to us (first 2 nights it was not). When I was on the deck and they were on the deck at the same time, I could hear every word of their conversation. But otherwise we loved the Seine Boat Inn and would highly recommend it.
