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.

Seaview Lodge was a great experience, the staff were so welcoming and friendly. Claudia the Manager very helpful, the Chef Soane was very accommodating and even made special meals for my young daughters (7yrs and 11yrs). Thanks to all the team. We will be back!

Once greeted by Gudrun and Franz we were like a part of the family. Every guest can feel at home. We first arrived for two nights, then went to Ha'apai and came back for one more night. The rooms were in the main clean but for some rarely used items like hairdryer and drawers. They were ornated with passion and... More

Although small Seaview Lodge has a great heart. We were made so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for lovely Vea, who is its heart. Sadly the restaurant was closed when we were staying in February so cannot coment on food except for a just lovely breakfast with wonderful fruit selection. I had been struggling with WiFi connections all through... More
