“B&B style”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We stayed only one night here, passing through, but wished we could have stayed longer.
Dennis, the host, is friendly and chatty, although this might be off putting for some.
The lodge itself is a big old house, with all seperate rooms. I would say this place is good for people wanting to chat with other travellers and make new friends. There is a communal kitchen/tv room etc, but each room has its own bathroom.
Its directly across from a gorgeous beach and is a lovely location, although it is a 15-20min drive into Portland (closest town) if you want a meal out/shops.
We had a fantastic cooked breakfast the next morning - try the mushrooms (wonderful) and pankcakes (so big and fluffy).

The Lodge is built like an old english country house, situated about 100 Meters of the wonderful beach.Only a street is between house and ocean.We have had room two with a spabath with wonderful seaview. The bed in the room was comfortable, the furniture english simple.In the room there was no fridge and no TV. You have a fridge in a small kitchen for all guests and TV in an other room for all. For one or two days Seaview is a good stay, but a t t e n t i o n ! there are no shops or restaurants in this region. There is only a cafe, closing 5 pm every day.

Room Tip: Room 2 with spa is beautiful

Seaviewlodge, Manager at Cape Bridgewater Sea View Lodge, responded to this review, March 16, 2013
Thank you so much for your review. Just some points regarding the Bridgewater Bay Cafe and its opening hours.
From from Boxing day (26/12) they are open every night till end of January. At Easter time they are open till late as well.
During other times of the year they are open every Friday night till late and other days shut at 5pm, unless something special is happening in Bridgewater Bay.
For my guests, you can always buy some of the lovely food from the cafe and heat it up in our kitchenette upstairs at Seaview Lodge.

Spent two nights in the King room and had a wonderful stay, view from the balcony was amazing , cross the road and you are on the most beautiful stretch of unspoilt beach, magic! Breakfast is supplied each morning and cooked perfectly to your liking. Dennis is a wonderful host and it is a wonderful place to stay and recharge, will be back sooner rather than later.

Room Tip: Any of the balcony rooms for the views

Superb. Very relaxing. Stress free. Excellent sea views. Host Dennis was friendly and excellent. Certainly did not impose on us. Good nights sleep followed by a great breakfast. We loved this place and would stay again.

A group of us stayed at Seawater Lodge for a week while walking sections of the Great Southwest walk. It is a wonderful facility with 5 double rooms all with ensuites, 3 of which overlook the ocean. The rooms were excellent, as was the breakfast, and Dennis was a welcoming, and attentive host.
We would all recommend it highly, particularly as a launching pad for sections of the Great South West Walk

Room Tip: Ocean facing rooms are preferable

We were the only people staying on this night. It is very out of the way, about 15 minutes drive to Portland, and there was nothing open on Sunday to eat, so we had to drive into Portland and find something. Its a tiny town about 80 people I think, but its lovely.

We got put in the best room, it was very nice, King bed, views of the ocean and doors onto the big communal balcony, bed was very comfy but y wife found it a bit firm. No central heating or aircon but portable radiator heaters were in each room which was fine. There is a separate communal lounge with TV and kitchen. The rooms don't have TV's, but have electric blankets which you will need if in winter. The bathroom was a bit dated, but clean and had everything, although there was a shockingly cold breeze coming from under the bath so we had to keep the door shut.

We got breakfast included, it was very nice, cooked to order, also had continental options, juice, cereals, toast etc. Its a nice, relaxing out of the way spot, but if you want more 'action' stay in Portland. It could have been cheaper, especially as it was off season and empty.

Room Tip: The one at the top of the stairs, facing the ocean, you can hear the waves and the bed is BIG.

Cape Bridgewater is a fantastic location for families, couples, in fact, anyone!! The beach is just stunning. We stayed in the self contained house and it was soooo lovely. I to ally recommend it to anyone. My only advice is to stay longer!! There is so much to do and see. We all wished we stayed longer.

Room Tip: Go in a group and book the house. It will be your home away from home!
