I stayed here for 1 night while walking the coast path. It was very good value because they were doing a special deal for October and the owner very kindly picked me up from the end of the walk and made a sandwich for me because I was fairly done in at the end of a long day. Comfortable room... More

Did not get a friendly welcome or send off here: at breakfast I overheard a guest say to her companion "I don't think the owner likes people." Place is full of stuffed animals and odd bric-a-brac. Would do in a pinch only. Pluses: the room was clean and Sea View is close to the Minack Theater.

Loved every minute here. The girls are wonderful hosts and are doing a fantastic job to the property. The garden is looking brilliant after being explained all the work they have done and what a hard winter it was for them. Lovely clean bedroom well finished and I had a good night sleep. The smell of dogs???? No idea as... More

My husband and I have just had a 3 night B&B stay at the Sea View House. Can I please remind you all that the current owners have only been in this property for some 8 months and are determined to ' make a difference ' with the work in progress that they are doing to improve the property, this...

Seaview has lovely owners and they have only been in control for less than a year and they are making improvements but... the B&B does smell of dogs (they have two large ones) and the room we had was a sad place. Paint chipped off the walls, poorly managed electrical wiring, a 4 foot high bathroom mirror in a very... More

We stayed for most of a week while working a show at the Minack Theatre. Our double room with en-suite was clean, bed was comfortable, shower worked fine, no sea view. Owners friendly, breakfast good. Fine as a place to sleep and shower but room somewhat cramped if, like me, you needed to spend any time in it. Very difficult... More

We were renting a cottage in Lizard and chose to stay here for a night as we were watching The Tempest at the Minack. The proprieters couldn't do enough to help make our stay comfortable and relaxing, giving us blankets and cushions for our visit to the theatre. Breakfast was superb next morning, also, and we had no problems with... More

We stayed there one night on our walking trip round Landsend and were rather disappointed by a cold shower in the evening and in the morning due to a full house- we came in around 6 pm. Our twin bed room under the roof seemed to be made up with a new bathroom, but the bathroomdoor didn't close tight, so... More

We found the Sea View House to be shabby, cramped and unfriendly. We did have a sea view but the room was so musty (with way too much airfreshener to cover it up) that I had an asthma attack. The proprietor was rude -- the House does not open till 4, and the day we were there was pouring rain... More
