Booked our room here after arriving on the island on a spur of the moment getaway and were so happy with our stay. This Seaview Hotel is in a nice quiet location that isn't touristy at all and is much bigger than it appears from the street front. Limited parking is available to guests free of charge. The restaurant is very popular offering absolutely delicious food. We couldn't get into the restaurant the night we arrived so booked in for our 2nd night, but luckily the hotel also has two bars and offers a nice selection of more pub style food.
We stayed in Room 4 which did not have any sea views. It did have a little balcony however the kitchen air-conditioning vents were right outside the room and could be heard from within the room 24hrs a day - this didn't bother us as we find white noise actually helps to lull us off to sleep. Though not a very large room it was fine for the two of us and there was a lovely large guest only lounge area nearby. The room was very clean, smelled beautifully fresh (would love to know which washing products they use for their laundry - the linens & robes smelled absolutely wonderful!), was nicely decorated and they really had thought of every creature comfort. The bathroom was a good size with a nice deep tub with shower. A word of warning though there was no shower rail or curtain so if showering rather than bathing you essentially have to sit in the tub and hold the shower head, which despite best efforts leads to a wet bathroom.
The included breakfast was the best offering I've ever experienced and set you up for an active day. A great buffet of the usual cereal, fruits, yogurts, croissants and juices, but the hot breakfast menu was incredible. Generous portions with choices including Full English, Eggs Benedict with Ham or it's posher cousin Eggs Royal with Smoked Salmon and Pancakes with Maple Syrup to name a few.
Overall this was a great hotel with excellent, courteous, friendly staff who go out of their way to help and we would happily stay again.
