“What A Find”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

First and foremost I would like to thank Mike & Alex for a excellent weekend that we had in The Seaview Guest House. Everything was perfect from the afternoon of arriving to the day of leaving they could not do enough for you. Breakfast was perfect & set you up for the day & if you required something to eat at night they guided in the right directions to the best eating places in town. So me & the bride will go straight to The Seaview when we visit Southport again if they have room for us as this place is the tops.Once again Mike & Alex thank you for all you did for us.

The visit to Southport was for my partners participation in the national bodybuilding competition. We had originally booked a night with The Norwood Guest House, however a week before the stay we were informed that the use of competition tanning solutions were not permitted and so our booking was cancelled. This resulted in booking a room with Seaview, which i can only describe as serendipity.

On arrival (after a grueling eight and a half hour drive) we were invited in and offered refreshments. Alex and Mike are so amazingly friendly and accommodating its like home from home. There was a genuine interest in the competition and what it entailed and what they could do to assist in the strict dietary requirements needed.

The room was bright, clean and with en-suit shower. Plenty of storage was available as too was the little things that usually get overlooked, things like sanitary items, shoe cleaning kit and even a sewing kit were available in the room. It was as if everything was thought out with such detail, even the likelihood of having a guest stay who would need a comb (and yes I was that guest who had left mine at home). The bed was so comfy it made for a lovely nights sleep.

The breakfast is one of the best ive eaten and of a good size too, it kept me going for the majority of the day.

Felt sad to leave and come home, but we will return next year :)

Room Tip: More of a tip to myself for future use. As the bedding was very pretty, and pristine white i was pa...

Back again at the Seaview. Mike and Alex have to continued to make our stay as comfortable as you would wish. Each room that we booked as they were 6 of us, was beautifully appointed, and comfortable beyond belief. They are fantastic hosts and you will not get a better breakfast anywhere. The Seaview is absolutely spotless as each room. It is like going and staying with friends. Thank you Mike and Alex for making us feel so welcome. See you next year.

Room Tip: There are no tips as each room is perfect. If you want a ground floor room there is only one, so mak...

Recommended by a colleague and thank god they did, Alex & Mike welcomed me into their home like an old friend and looked after us amazingly. The room was lovely with every requirement I needed.

The breakfast was amazing, and the whole place is like a home from home.

Upon leaving I will be re-booking for next year and may well try and make a trip while the summer is still with us.

Worth the visit, you will certainly be looked after.

Friendly hosts, great breakfasts (just the right thing to start the day, everything was lovely and fresh and they even remembered the wife's awkward egg order!) and a nice central location -even ideal for day trips to Liverpool. Rooms are very clean and comfortable and will definitely back for fifth trip soon.

My husband and I returned for a third visit to The Seaview to do our Christmas shopping in Southport and, once again, were warmly welcomed this time by new owners Alex and Mike.
We arrived a little early for check in to be welcomed with tea/coffee and a tray of delicious cakes and biscuits.Alex and Mike stayed for a chat before we went up to a lovely decorated room .The room had an abundance of products all you could need for an overnight stay.
The Seaview is minutes away from the shops and directly opposite a good Indian restaurant what more could you want from a location!
Breakfast definitely set us up for the day with a great choice of food.
Parking is great and makes it so much easier to know you can leave your car somewhere close by.

We look forward to our next trip to The Seaview sometime soon.
