This is a B&B rather than a hotel but it is lovely. Spotlessly clean, excellent wi-fi connection, good breakfasts and beautiful views of the Carnoustie seaside plus extremely friendly owners. There's also ample parking in the hotel car park.
Seaview has a great location - close to the beach and the main street, both within a 5-minute walk, plus a big co-op at the end of the road. There's a number of places to choose from for dining nearby as well (a few hotels serving hot food, restaurants and cafes) - Carnoustie is a very small place and everything is within walking distance. The view from the window is lovely, and I love the fact that you can hear the waves outside the window... There's a trainline fairly close to the hotel as well but trains don't run too often and I have barely noticed them (and I am very sensitive to noise so this really tells you something!). Ah yes, the train. The hotel is a 5-minute walk from the station (probably more like 3 minutes in fact) so you can easily get here by train if you don't want to drive. There's also a good connection with other Angus seaside towns, Arbroath and Montrose.
I stayed in Seaview for a few days and was really happy with everything. I stayed in a twin room, bed was very comfy, there was also ample furniture in the room (a wardrobe, side table, chest of drawers, desk, stool, two chairs) but it wasn't cramped as the room was a fair size. The only thing I'd perhaps like to see additionally would've been a little table to sit by, have your tea and admire the view! (You could still do that but without a table and put your tea on the window sill, I guess!). There was also a mirror and TV in the room (hadn't even bothered to switch it on so can't comment on that). The bathroom was also a fair size, with an electric shower (good water pressure, hot water as required), toilet and sink. The decor was ok, sort of B&B-ish (traditional rather than modern).
For breakfast you could choose from a variety of cereals, fruit, tea/coffee/orange juice and a cooked English breakfast - or should I say Scottish, 'cos you could have haggis. I haven't had a full cooked breakfast so cannot comment on it but the one's the other guests were having looked fine! Also toast, good choice of jams.
All in all, I'd highly recommend this B&B, well worth a stay if you're heading up to Angus! Carnoustie is small but nice for a few days' stay. There's a great playground by the sea, including a little splash pool for kids, and there's a lovely sandy beach! Great base for exploring Angus, which I think is a beautiful region.
