I stayed here for a couple of nights before flying off to Haapai. I didn't have a seaview room and it was functional but fairly tired looking. The bathroom was fairly basic and lacked shower gel and shampoo, but I had brought my own so this wasn't a problem. The location is great, across the road from the sea and... More

I made a group-booking to Seaview Lodge and the individuals have different schedule and things were changed a lot. I was so sorry to the staff of the hotel, but their response was very fast and clear. The wifi speed was the best as I experienced in Nukualofa. The facilities and food were very nice. The location was excellent as... More

My wife and I caught a boat over to Nuku'alofa on a friend's recommendation. The restaurant and bar are fabulous. We had a wonderful dinner and great service. It was good value and the crayfish dish was extremely nice. I am sure we shall return.

I spent 15 days in nuku'alofa on business and stayed at the Seaview Lodge the whole time. As a person who travels and stays in hotel rooms more than anyone really should, I found the Seaview an excellent stay. The staff were amazing (courteous and friendly). They made a lonely traveller feel right at home. My deepest appreciation and best... More

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

Very nice place in spot close to the city center. very good internet, good bed and excellent restaurant, one of the very view open on Sunday. Try the squid salad. Nice balcony attached to the front rooms with (of course) beautiful sea view.

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
