This was a very pleasant place to stay, overlooking the ocean but very close to the town centre. Just need to cross the street to access the ocean walk. Clean cozy rooms, but not large or luxurious. Bathroom was functional but basic. Good TV selection and free internet. The jewel in the crown though is the first class restaurant in... More

The Seaview is so much more than a just a lodge. The rooms are spotless, the service is 5 star, the managers will give you the best experience they can and then there is the food..The chef, yes, chef not cook, has trained in Europe and people come to dine in the restaurant just to experience the food! The food... More

Fantastic restaurant and good clean rooms. This is my hotel of choice and I have been coming here for many years and the German efficiency is easy to see in the way everything is organised. It is not too far from the middle of town and it is easy to get a taxi to other restaurants and parts of Nuku'... More

After the previous owners have left the seaview about a year ago, it is really time to give the new management team some credit. I stayed at the Seaview on various occassions over the last years, know all the earlier owners and can see the differences. Together with the Waterfont Lodge this is the best Hotel in Nuku'alofa, no matter... More

My sister and I stayed here for 5 nights with a gap in the middle for a trip to Vava'u. Can't say enough about the great staff at the lodge and restaurant. This is a very acceptable place to stay, comfortable beds and everything we needed complete with nice views, close to town, and friendly neighbours as well! Will definitely... More

What kindness we received when overnighting on our way to Ha'apai. We arrived fraught from dealing with a suitcase missing and trying to work out what we would need for the next few days. People were helpful and sympathetic in a genuine way. After a walk into "downtown" a few minutes away we had a selection of tshirts and toothbrushes,... More

Very close to the center. VERY friendly staff. Willing to help with any issue and question and make you feel at home. Right on the water with beautiful sea view. The food is delicious and the chef is great with lots of experience trying to fulfill all his guests requests:)

We were only there for 12 hours between flights from Tongatapu to Ha'apai and really wish we had a full day. We arrived at about 7:00 pm, headed to our room, set our bags down and went straight downstairs to dinner. There are beautiful wood carvings of Humpback Whales and other sea creatures throughout the property. We looked out over... More

A nice walkable distance from shops and business area. Excellent restaurant onsite and friendly staff. Rooms are ok and can be a but noisy, more like B&B style, but fine for this market. Nice outdoor area for evening beer. Would stay here again.
