Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

We came down for a four day three night stay with friends and our dog and we could not have been made more welcome.
The bar was buzzing at all times of the day and evening. Phil, his wife Jan and their team could not do enough for one.
The restaurant too was busy, the food varied ann interesting and arrived in good time piping hot to much appreciation. The wine menu too was diverse and well priced and we should know as we tried lots!!
There were two lovely outside seating dining areas so one could follow the rays!!
The dog too was welcome everywhere but the restaurant which took the stress out of the weekend.

We booked in at the Seagate for a weekend in March, pleasantly surprised to receive an upgrade, Jan & Phil were the perfect hosts,friendly staff, food and accommodation was excellent ; all told the whole experience was fab; just what we needed to recharge the batteries. We look forward to returning to Appledore & staying at the Seagate later in the year when our summer season is over in Weymouth.

My partner booked 4 nights at the Seagate for my birthday. We stayed in room 5 overlooking the estuary/car park which was very quiet. The décor was of a high standard and the huge bed very comfortable. The owners and staff were friendly but unfortunately completely absorbed by a kitchen refit. So much so that they didn't tell us there would be no evening meals for the first few days. Sylvesters fish and chips across the road is amazing! The breakfasts were ok, my partner especially liked the local sausages. For me the choice was limited as I'm vegetarian but the worse thing for me was there was no marmalade on the first morning, they had run out! The next morning there was no marmalade again and when I asked I was given one tiny pot between the two of us. They did however give my partner a refund of £50 as our room wasn't serviced one day which we thought was very reasonable. Hopefully they will be more focused on their customers once the refurbishments are complete.

Room Tip: Room 5 has good views and there is no pub noise.

Every so often you find a little gem...The Seagate is such a place. We had booked for a 3 day break and were given a lovely little suite overloking the estuary and the sea beyond. Neutral walls, oatmeal carpet...utilitarian furniture painted with a white sheen...spotless bathroom with quality finishes and Duck Island toiletries..it was hard to fault this so I won't. Downstairs there is a comfortable bar where the decor is seaside Farrow & Ball meets country house style furniture. Blocks of statement wallpaper carries through to the restaurant that overlooks the bar and courtyard and offers a good range of meals that were excellent value. Breakfast was very good...all the usual suspects cooked to order. What really sets this place apart is the quality of the management and staff. A couple called Phil & Jan are the owners and together with their Daughter and Son they have turned what was apparently a very dilapidated building into a thriving business by offering excellent levels of customer care and service...STAY THERE!

Room Tip: Suite 5 on the top floor was excellent had great views and was very quiet.

This boutique Hotel is very well situated, maintained to a high standard, produces excellent food, especially breakfast, has comfortable rooms, and the bar/ restaurant areas are tastefully decorated.
Bar food and snacks were available all through the day, which meant you didn't have to eat in the restaurant every time.
A new improved out door area was being constructed whilst we were there and this will be very popular with visitors and locals during those long hot summer days!!
For walkers/bikers/families, its a great place to visit with plenty to do and see. We will be back.

Room Tip: Room 4 for peace and quiet, bunk beds for kids, spacious bathroom.

This hotel is right on the seafront. Beautiful views. The food is excellent. The rooms are really lovely.
The Seagate staff are friendly but very efficient. Nothing is too much trouble. My special diet was easily catered for. Recommended
