Reasonable rates...

Lovely place to stay over for a night or two - check in dealt with promptly & politely, quickly & efficiently.

Staff very friendly & attentive. Room was comfortable & clean, plenty of hot water & our room had a nice, quiet rooftop terrace outside where you could enjoy your morning cuppa with a book or newspaper. No disturbances, lovely garden for lunches/drinks & an extensive evening menu until 9pm. We requested some slightly off-menu choices for breakfast & these were given without any fuss or bother. All staff were polite & efficient - great customer service at this place. The interior itself is a bit 'faded' & tired but still really clean with regard to floors, bathroom & bed linen. Needs some clearer signage to find too (when you're not familiar with the area) but this may not be possible due to council regulations. Toiletries, hairdryer & biscuits supplied......and all with a sea view too. Great value for money...

Small Hotel By the Sea

A small hotel by the sea offering a good satisfying breakfast but only from 8.30 am.

Although advised no food Sunday or Monday when we booked unless you like Indian food there was nowhere close where you can obtain a meal. The hotel does not even offer sandwiches and we had to buy from a local shop.

Unfortunatly we did not find the very small room very clean, it was very tired and in need of redecoration as was the rest of the building, our room was on the side of the building with the kitchen extractor outside our window overlooking a very untidy unattractive yard, good job the kitchen was closed as it would no doubt have been very noisy. Sorry would not choose to stay again.

poor quality

landlady finally had a conversation with us as we checked out whilst landlord didn't bother to introduce himself at all.

Hallway smelt of stale mops and stagnant water. Our room door was left wide open after being cleaned we got an apology two days later. Shower pressure was inconsistent varying between a trickle and adequate. Breakfast time was brought forward one day to accommodate a meeting so we felt as though we were being rushed to finish and were only told about it because we went to the bar for a drink the previous evening. We were asked to move tables in the pub area 20 minutes before closing time so they could set tables for following days breakfast. All in all very poor value for money in a hotel where we were not made to feel as though our stay was important to them.

Pleasantly surprised

Downstairs smelt pretty weird, but the room was phenomenal - would definitely go back

Good food and friendly people

The only drawback for us was the shower we had to kneel down as the pressure wasn't good.

Great value and friendly staff

I stayed at the Seaview as a last minute booking due to being double booked somewhere else.

The staff and owners were very friendly and did all they could to make me feel welcome. The room was very clean and comfortable. Would book again.

Room basic but comfortable, food very good but public areas could do with some T.L.C.
