The Seaview
Ranked #21 of 41 Southport B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Our group of 4 friends had a very pleasant one night stay. 2 of the group had a lovely spacious room and my friend and I had a smaller twin room. On arrival our friendly hosts made us most welcome with afternoon tea and coffee with home made cakes and biscuits which I thought was a lovely gesture. There is limited off road parking.

Breakfast was superb - the best quality ingredients were used and our hosts wanted us to have the best B & B experience even though we only stayed one night. I would definitely go again but would request a bigger room - I prefer a shower/wc separated by a door instead of a sliding one, but this room was very compact so that may not have been an option. Having said that, cleanliness was paramount, and tea/coffee facilities were in the room and toiletries were also provided, as was a hair dryer. Decor is traditionally in keeping with the image of the establishment.

I would recommend the Seaview without hesitation and think the hospitality was wonderful.

Room Tip: Check on the size of the room first if you like spaciousness.

Dear Princess,

Our apologies for not posting a reply to your review earlier, but we have been extremely busy. The excellent weather has attracted more visitors to Southport. We are really pleased your group enjoyed their stay with us. We hope if you decide to stay with us again we can provide the rooms that you would prefer to stay in. We are continually updating our all of our rooms to ensure we can provide you with fresh and comfortable accommodation. Many thanks for your comments on our breakfast, we do aim to ensure we always use good quality products, including our locally supplied free range eggs and Black Pudding.

We look forward to welcoming you all back and hopefully you can stay a little longer to sample some of our other breakfast offerings.

Best wishes

Mike and Alex

We stayed for a night a quick pick me up break from work and staying here is better than a spa to me !
Great welcome from Alex and Mike and a lovely room and fab breakfast.
5 mins from Lord Street and all those shoe shops ...
Lively bar at 88 Lord Street and a good Wetherspoons are minutes away.
Then there's the Indian restaurant across the road.
If you haven't stayed here treat yourselves it will be well worth it.
We will be back soon.

Dear Tracey and Mike,

It was great having you both back with us again and pleased you managed to get your shoe collection stocked up again, they looked great!. We are pleased you enjoyed your meal at the Taj Mahal. All our guests who eat there are always very complementary about the food and service. Great to hear you were both able to return home refreshed.

We look forward to seeing you both again, hopefully, in the not too distant future.

Kindest regards,

Mike and Alex

This hotel was ideal. We booked it as an overnight stay as a birthday surprise. We were very pleased with the friendly welcome we received from Alex and Mike. The rooms were comfortable and well stocked with all the bits you may have forgotten to take.
The breakfasts were plentiful and looked inviting and we were not disappointed.
We would definitely stay here again when visiting Southport

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...
