“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2008

For a brief stay, just needing a place to rest your head, you can't beat the price. $81 for 2 people, per night. One of the couples referred to it as "the monk's quarters" as it was a little sparse, and it was rather noisy with traffic zooming by all night, but for the most part - worth what we paid. Friends stayed down the way at Maria's for more than twice the $ and they didn't even have A/C. Mattress, bedding, overall cleanliness, coffee pot - all acceptable.

This hotel is a cheap option on Tortola and convenient for trips to Cane Garden Bay, Virgin Gorda and Anegada.
The rooms are basic and the cheapest have nice beds, closet, nice bathroom and kitchenette.
There's a pool as well but it didn't look that great and I didn't see anybody swimming either.
The girl in the reception was very nice and helpful.

Can't see the sea but the pool was about the same color. Sea View is right next to a very busy road and it sounds like turn 2 of an Indy race until the wee hours of the morning. The only real positive was the A/C worked.

I stayed at sea view for a week. I was on a tight budget so the cost was ideal compared to others on the island. All in all it wasn't a terrible experience but it lacked the finesse I would have hoped for but it was ok. The staff were pleasant, rooms clean and I felt that I was given alot of privacy. However.............it would have been nice to have a phone in the room even if only to receive incoming calls and it would have been nice if there was a bar, with a little TV some music etc. There was a bar but it was closed up, looked old and had probably not been used in a long time. It has the potential to be a great little place and i hope the owners are reading ths and make a few changes!!!

We recently just stayed at the Sea View Hotel in Tortola for a two nights. We used it as a branching off point so we could take the ferry to Virgin Gorda and then have a place to stay when we returned. The Sea View has a great location right in Road Town and is great for the money you pay. We payed 65 Canadian for a room with a bathroom and a fan. You can upgrade and get air conditioning but for the time we were actually in the room it wasn't worth it. The rooms are clean, modest and have maid service each day along with a nice pool in the center of the hotel. If you are planning a beach vacation do not stay here as you will be very disappointed because it is right in the heart of the city. There are so many other beautiful and relaxing places to stay but I'm glad we stayed here before our visit to Virgin Gorda (a definite highlight) and then moved on to enjoy the beautiful beaches the BVI's has to offer. Overall I would definitely reccomend this place for a one to two night stay and for the money you can't beat it.

Hotel was above average for the island, except for those who want luxury accomodations (and willing to pay a High Price). Saffia was very pleasant, greeted us warmly despite our late night arrival. Coffeemaker and kitchenette were pleasant surprises. Bed was fine. While simple and austere, the room was very clean. We had some time to walk around the area the following morning and found the Seaview Hotel to be excellently located near the ferry and many of Road Town's attractions. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. I found none of the problems encountered by the previous reviewer. The pool was a very refreshing treat and afforded a beautiful view of the hillside above it.

This Hotel is for the budget traveller, and should always be considered this way. However a group of us where guests in this Hotel, we arrived on the Friday afternoon for a wedding. Only one of the rooms had running water and the staff where informed of this and immediately tried to fix it.

However nothing was fixed and after 5 minutes they gave up. The next morning (the morning of the wedding) they finally decided to call a plumber. We had to share a downstairs bathroom (seemingly the only one with water but still no shower head) to be able to shower. There where no aplologies for this or admissions that this was a major inconvience. They just told us individually that the other members of our group where not complaining and to stop being so nagative.

Once the water problem was fixed (though no Hot water) the Hotel owner / manager complained that we where disruptive, and vindictave and alledged that we deliberately sabotaged the water supplies! Then the story changed and they said that there had been no problem and it had worked all along!! Management refused to give us discount and threatened us with the police if we did not stop complaining.

Definately the worst service I have ever received and I live in the Caribbean where the service as a whole is dire.

Only stay here if there is nowhere else to go!!
