arrived 21 January for 2 week honeymoon. still here...1 day left! overall hotel is nice. oppiste the beach although other end of beach is far better. rooms ok...302 we had. clean, big bed, small dated bathroom. cleaner needed to be reminded to replace loo roll many times! she kept forgetting. staff are friendly and English is good from most staff. hotel is at quiet end of beach road which can mean alot of walking day/night or get ripped off by tuk tuk drivers....up to you!

Had a good holiday at the Seaview hotel it's a bit of a messing when you first get there trying to get rooms you requested 10 months previous. But eventually you get what you ask for. Rooms are comfortable and are cleaned everyday and anything you need you just have to ask for (except an iron) only one problem there is not enough room for your clothes the hotel would benefit so much if they just put a small set of drawers in each room. When you are there for 3 weeks or more its hard living out of your case But all in all everything else was satisfactory. The breakfast had a really good choice and the best thing was the beautiful friendly Wanida who every morning came to ask how is your room is there anything you need with a lovely smile she is an asset to the hotel.
Good location as its away from all the hustle and bustle but near enough to walk to the famous Bangla Road where the colourful night life begins
Just down the road from the hotel is s lovely little bar called Komma a great place lovely friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you a great meeting place.
Will definitely go back in a couple of years and will probably stay at the Seaview again

We arrived after a 2 day stay in Bangkok and were shown to our rooms. My wife and I had been upgraded to a pool-side Delux Room, but our friends were shown to their booked "Superior" room, which was just not acceptable. The room and bathroom were small, very tired looking with little light as the tree outside the window blocked the window. Following a little discussion, our friends were given a better room with a Sea View and from then on it got better. Every morning at breakfast we were asked if everything was ok with our rooms and at any time there was a problem, eg more beach towels required, it was sorted by the time breakfast was finished. We had a little problem with the air conditioning which they attempted to fix as it was always too cold. We got round this by turning it off at night before we went to bed.
The breakfast buffet was what you would expect at an international hotel, but I have to commend the omeletes.The evening meals tended to be theme nights, often repeated, and usually in a BBQ format. but as we ate out most nights this was not a proiblem.
Althogh the main pool looks good, it is very shallow and not really suitable for swimming. You need the beach across the road for that.
The Hotel is at the quiet end of Patong beach which at first we thought might be a little dull but which eventually turned out to be the right choice with all the noise being back up towards the Bangla Road area.
All that said, we will probably retun to the Seaview next year if things go according to plan. The main reason for our return will be the staff. always cheerfull, polite and happy but there was one person who was outstanding. Her name is Wannida, the Assistant Operations Manager. If it needed doing, she got it done. Thanks Wannida.

Room Tip: Dont settle for a room that is not up to scratch. Room 103 is great.

This is a excellent hotel on the Patong Beach / 4 Star very neat rooms with nice view / hotel is near everything and a big + is that it is situated on the beach - close to good shopping and aspecialy Bangla Road - the main street off activity, restaurants, pubs and the centre off everything. Nice long sandy beach with a lot of activity - great nightlife / one of the best hotels to enjoy an excellent breakfast / you can arrange almost any daytrip all around Phuket and you are picked up in front of the hotel. Great memories were build.

Room Tip: Ask for exit into swimming pool / very nice rooms

We had a fantastic time at the Seaview Patong Hotel. It is in a great location, close to the beach, but out of the busy tour area. The staff were excellent and incredibly helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was very good and there was a great deal of food to choose from. The rooms (we had one facing the pool) was very nice, clean and comfortable. Somehow they knew it was my brithday and had a great cake and celebration planned for us! We had a great time and were so pleased that we chose to stay there during our holiday visit!

The hotel is situated right at the end of Patong Beach, so it is away from the hustle and bustle and much more quiet, but close enough to walk. The hotel staff is very helpful and are always checking that everything is okay, they make an effort to check on everyone at breakfast (which is a huge buffet).

We had a midnight flight when we left Phuket, although we had to check out at 11am, we could still use all the facilities, keep our bags and they have bathroom and shower facilities for this kind of situation.

The rooms could use a serious make-over. They are large and cleaned well but an update is due. Our double room was actually a twin room with the beds pushed together, which is uncomfortable. Interiors are outdated, old and drab.

Overall, I would still stay here again but there is lots of room for improvement.

Great location. Very good breakfast. Staff are very friendly. Taxis and tuk tuks always available outside the hotel. Very close to the beach. Close to supermarket and shopping area. In quite part of the street. It was our son's birthday and the staff provided excellent service and friendliness regarding the birthday cake and party. The only problems to highlight are the poor water pressure of shower and bath taps. Also uses the old fashion shower curtains. Bathrooms are very small. The shower gel, shampoo and conditioner were never filled up or replaced during our ten days stay. Wifi is very expensive. Treadmill in gym was out of order.
