“Excellent service”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend stayed at the Sea View and thoroughly enjoyed it. While she was there I arranged to have a little gift delivered to her room on two occasions. I coordinated this with Safiya Brewley who was most helpful. My girlfriend loved it.

Stayed March 2014

I didn't want a resort, just a clean, affordable place for two nights. My room (#6) looked as if it had just been redone the week before. Everything was very clean and working, staff very helpful and friendly. Nice restaurant a block away and walking distance to the Ferry Dock. If a similar trip brings me back to Road Town, I would stay at the Sea View again in a heart beat!

This is NOT a resort! And most rooms do NOT have a sea view!

But those are the only downsides. The place is immaculately clean, including the modest swimming pool. The Christopher family couldn't be friendlier, including Safiya, the lovely and sophisticated manager.

I stayed in one of the cheapo rooms, and although small, it had everything I needed. It was equipped with a brand new small fridge, new Euro-style A/C, coffee maker, hot water whenever I needed it, and a small flat screen with cable. The bed was very comfy, with nice pillows. There was maid service every day.

Yes, it is on the main road, but one would always have the windows closed with A/C on anyway. I'm a light sleeper, and wasn't at all bothered. There's a great bar/restaurant almost across the street, and a well-stocked grocery store just steps away. And it's a short walk to the main part of Road Town, with many choices for dining and shopping.

There was free wireless, with a great signal both in my room and at the pool.

This hotel is perfect for travelers on a budget, business travelers, or like me...a traveler with no intention of spending much time at the hotel - because there's so much more to do in the BVI. If you have young children, they would enjoy the pool. Older kids might need more room.

Parking is sparse, but twenty steps away, on the 'side street', there's plenty of parking.

The neighborhood is perfectly safe, and tourist-traveled.

Although I had few requests, it seems like Safiya (who lives on the property) would be most willing to accommodate whatever one might need. She is indeed a delight.

As a traveler who appreciates 'bang for the buck', this place is indeed a winner!

This is the closest we could find to a budget hotel in Road town. We stayed for three nights while provisioning for a bareboat charter and visiting the island. Rooms are very clean if spartan. They had a refrigerator and coffee maker in our room but we had to ask for the coffee pack. The TV worked.
Others have written about the proximity to the road. True but as we are early risers we didn't find the noise a problem. Sunday morning in Road Town no one is up early so no noise.

Returning after our week's sailing we found that wifi was now available in the room as well as the reception area.

The swimming pool is immaculate but very small.

The parking space is limited and VERY steep. However, we parked on the street with no problems. The hotel is within 15 minutes walking of the ferry dock but a cab is needed to get to Moorings/Sunsail base. There is a restaurant in easy walking distance.

The young woman at reception could not have been more friendly.

We are just about to finish our stay at the Sea View Hotel after two weeks in Road Town, Tortola. The hotel is a just 10 minute walk from the Ferry Terminal and handy for Village Cay Marina where we did some great day sailing trips from, and to the Conch Charter pontoons and the Pub Restaurant. The room is clean with a quiet AC plus a ceiling fan. Although quite near to the road between Road Town and West End, the traffic noise was minimal. We experienced a cool breeze every night through the mosquito nets on the windows. The swimming pool, although not large is maintained in a PRISTINE condition. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this hotel to anyone, especially those that want a decent place to stay at a fraction of the 'rip-off' prices that other hotels are charging.

Made reservation inJune and reconfirm in July. Reserved a suite with kitchenette. Upon arrival I discovered that the stove was not turned, there were no pots or pans, kitcken knives, spoons or forks. The floor was wet from condensation, no toilet paper or soap in the bathroom. Turned the fan on and the noise was unbearable. Ants and mosquitoes were frequent companions. The coffee mate was soo old it looks and felt like chewing gum. I left it in water for 2 days and it never dissolved. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
