“Fantastic stay - nothing too much trouble!”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

Stayed here to attend a family wedding in the area. We booked two double rooms and one twin for two nights each. Fairly close to arrival we had to change the twin from a 2 to a 1 night stay due to travel arrangements, expected to still have to pay for both nights but not the case. Mike and Alex only charged for one night and even allowed my brother in law into the room at about 10 am on the day of his arrival so he could get ready for the wedding. Rooms are lovely, very clean and have lots of little extras including chocolates on arrival. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly owners, tea and home made cake, a great combination after a long trip on the M 62. Breakfast lovely with lots of choice. Would definitely recommend and will be using again for our next trip to Southport as it is a fab b&b and only a couple of minutes walk from all of the attractions and Lord Street. Thank you for a lovely stay!!

Room Tip: Room 3 is spacious and airy with window seats to enjoy tea and coffee.

Thanks to Mike & Alex for a terrific stay for 7 nights in July ! We selected Seaview B & B on the basis of the reviews on Trip Advisor. What a great place -- Mike & Alex also booked our transport to the British Open for us. Great recommendations on places to eat & shop. The rooms were sparkling clean & were serviced daily. We really appreciated the choices for breakfast & the fruit salad each day ! We came as strangers and left as friends ! Mike and Alex are terrific & the location was great. We will definitely stay here on our next visit !!

Dear Dwayne and Andrea,

We really appreciate your comments following your stay with us at the Seaview, we both really enjoyed your company and wished you could have stayed a little longer with us. We hope you will visit us again in the not too distant future. You may wish to visit the Morgan Car showroom next time to get one of the models we have both promised ourselves once our wealth increases!

Best wishes and kindest regards and we promise to keep in touch.

We were welcomed on our arrival with tea and biscuits which was much appreciated and unexpected after our journey, Alex and Mike spent some time with us giving us a lot of useful information about the area and places to visit. Their guest house is located within walking distance from all the major attractions and the centre of Southport, we were made extremely welcome and the facilities were second to none, our room, and the entire guesthouse was scrupulously clean and all the extra touches and attention to detail were very thoughtfully provided. We would, without reservation return and recommend this excellent guest house and its hosts who went that extra mile to make our stay enjoyable.We almost forgot the superb breakfast selection which was when served beautifully presented and delicious. We would have no hesitation in recommending or returning to Seaview. Thanks again from Zena and Mike.

What a great choice of bed and breakfast to choose. I stayed there for an Army Reunion Weekend with 7 friends and the owners could not have been nicer....very welcoming with a good chat, tea/coffee and biscuits....breakfast choices to die for and they were very obliging if you wanted something else....room was clean, tidy and well planned with lots of storage....would certainly recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in Southport

What can one say. I thought it was good when Sue used to run the Seaview, but now Alex and Mike have excelled. Nothing is too much for them. The house is spotless and first class. We have been staying here for the last 15 years every May when our conference comes around. Best location ever and the prices give entremely excellent value. I doubt you'll find better in Southport

Eight of us stayed here at Bank Holiday weekend to attend "the boys" army reunion. We had an amazingly warm welcome and were made to feel very much at home. The rooms were great with lots of little extras and the full English was excellent. We would certainly recommend staying here if you want to be looked after.
