Hi there. My name is David Gooding; I spent 14 days at The Seaview Hotel from 7th to 21st August 2014 in Room # 42. I did indeed have a wonderful time and the staff were excellent and friendly, in particular Antonio (Hope i have his name right). I will certainly recommend this facility to others who might wish to... More

This hotel "is what it is", and I don't mean that in a bad way. It is simply a low end hotel. That being said in addition to having the best location in town: The A/C works, the internet works, and the room was clean. If you are a person who uses a hotel room as a place to put... More

I checked in on Sunday 3rd and I was tired from being delayed in Antigua by LIAT as usual. The rooms are big and clean and the staff is wonderful. They attend to u as soon as u request their help, and they do not delay on getting things done. The morning breakfasts were delicious and reasonably priced. I found... More

I stayed there for two nights in late Jun14 whilst visiting St Martin. It fully met the expectations I had from pre travel research. It is on the main street in Philipsburg and backs onto the beach. The rooms clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful with the front desk staffed form early morning to late night... More

This is a convenient hotel, located in town. Anyone expecting a beach resort will be disappointed. That said, the rooms were very clean and the staff was polite and helpful. The room rate was excellent, the room comfortable. There are no amenities like shampoo or hair dryers, so be warned.

I stayed two nights April 24-26. I booked a sea view room and the ocean was visible out of the door/window at an angle - it was not directly overlooking the water. (However some rooms did directly overlook the water.) The room was adequate and met expectations for a budget room. The air conditioner was very quiet and had a... More

We stayed at Seaview Beach Hotel on the 17th of April for only 1 night. We had no problems checking in or out and the room was sufficient. The location really can't be beat for Philipsburg as it is right on the beach, great access to Front Street and Back Street. It felt safe and the staff were very friendly.... More

After reading other reviews on TA, I decided to stay here. This is the 1st time that I have been unable to read-between-the-lines of the reviews. We can all usually tell when a review doesn’t make sense…. Like ... “I have travelled the world, staying in many 5-star…” yet it’s their 1st review. You know what I mean. But I... More
