looks and feels like it hasnt been improved for decades.
Staff were friendly
Very old 4point plugs everywhere had to pay for wifi first place ever we have found that no view at all had to go out driveway for seaviews
Cleanliness and presentation of room
No view (Seaview?) Primitive can opener No plug in bathroom hand basin
Nice room but......
instead of the sea view I asked for, I got a view of a truck. A big truck. The driver was another guest. I asked the hosts if it could be moved as it totally obscured my view. They ignored my request. Rude & dismissive; I would NOT recommend.
The wonderful apartment with fabulous views over the sea. Very helpful, friendly owners. Good location for walking as well as easy access to town.
Hosts were really friendly and helpful.let me into my room when I got off the bus early.
Nothing all good
Beautiful Beachfront location Helpful staff
Our room was very old and tired for the price we payed
we had a family room facing the ocean. everything is nice and clean! we enjoyed our stay at Seaview Motel!!!
The best view in town and in the best spot. Walking distance to town. Our room had everyting needed for cooking and was absolutely spotlessly clean.
location good for beach
No air conditioning, no sea view in our room
big apartment with good facilities. Excellent location
No view from our room
the stairs to the studio
The total quiet. It was very peaceful. Staff were very good at helping us choose a good restaurant.
The view from the sun room. Very beautiful. Book in fast, as this place wI'll be popular in the high season.
Best 180 degrees view of beach and mountains. Older facilities but kept nice and clean. View is just the best, night or day, just amazing. Good kitchen facilities, lots of space, nice touches like extra seating to take in the view. Hosts very friendly and helpful
staircase leading up to unit a bit rickety, shower very old and needing to be replaced.
The friendliness of the host and hostess and their eagerness to make our stay enjoyable. Outdoor deck area and secure Parking.
Older style apartment
Donna and Gordon were excellent hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Location, view, room configuration, nice hosts.
We liked it all!
It was clean and homely and the staff were pleasant and helpful.
We were just glad we weren't staying for more than one night. We've stayed at cabin parks with better facilities. It was 3 and 1/2 star price for barely 2 1/2 star accommodation.
It was quite cosy and the bed was very comfortable
Spider web in bathroom. Bathroom floor dirty. paint over unprepared surfaces.
Ten minute quiet esplanade walk to town centre for pubs and restaurants. Quiet off road unit.
Cleanliness, facilities, free laundry, car washing facilities
Good location over looking the sea. Bed comfortable.
Poor layout, bathroom split on entrance to room and was in need of a serious update, odd taps on sink. Notice in the room to say if you cook smelly food in the room there will be charge for extra cleaning.
