Staff are very friendly,helpful,happy and willing to help.
Rooms are clean,modern,comfortable and soundproof from the pub.
Food was much more than your average pub grub,really tasty,filling and variety.
Located in walking distance of beach,shops and amenities.
Would definately return to the seal if in the area again and would recommend.

Stayed for the weekend at this Hotel in February, looks like a public house but has much more to offer. The rooms are immaculate with generous hospitality trays, spotlessly clean and wonderful mattresses on large beds. We had an evening meal with a varied menu, attentive and friendly table service, included in our stay was breakfast all cooked really well the only slightly negative comment would be that the hot water for tea and coffee was not really that hot. We will stay again.

I decided on a last minute whim to go to west wittering with my boyfriend and everything in the immediate vicinity of west wittering beach was booked up. Casting my eye slightly further afield, I found this gem. It's about a 10 minute drive to west wintering beach and 5 minute walk down the road to the pebbled selsey coastline where you can go for long walks or enjoy a romantic sunset.

Upon arrival, my partner and I were slightly concerned as the accommodation sits above a pub and we weren't quite sure what to expect. But our rooms were modern, newly refurbished, insulated against sound by all accounts and extremely comfortable. The beds are especially large and linen, duvet and pillows of excellent quality.

The service was great and the staff were extremely friendly and made us feel welcome. So much so that we decided to have dinner in the restaurant section and the food was great.

I would definitely go back.

First class accommodation, hospitality, food and beer.

Very good choice and large portions of food for evening meal in the restaurant.

Excellent breakfast.

Only stayed one night but didn't want to go!

I live in Selsey but spent four January nights at The Seal while some work was carried out in my house. My twin room was spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated and well appointed, with an attractive shower-room. There is a convivial atmosphere in the bars and restaurant, where the staff are all friendly and attentive and the wining and dining are excellent. This is hotel-keeping and hospitality of a high standard. If you are considering visiting the area, The Seal will be the perfect base for visiting the many attractions on this peninsula and in the nearby cities of Chichester and Portsmouth.

We enjoyed our stay at The Seal. The room we had was very comfortable, and we kept very warm during a cold snap. Only sorry we could only stay for three nights. Chichester also a lovely place to look around and we ran out of time to visit some other places of interest.

We came to Selsey for the sea birds and were very impressed with Pagham Harbour and West Wittering, and had the bonus of star gazing! We should have guessed because Patrick Moore lived in the next road to the Seal, and as the skys were clear, the stars were amazing!

Loved our time here.
