We visited Seaview after a relative suggested it. With an abundance of similar establishments on the IoW we probably would not have chosen to go here - which would have been a huge shame.
From arrival to departure, we were nothing but impressed with Seaview. The staff member at reception was helpful and all other staff we encountered were similarly friendly and helpful.
We walked round the enclosures, feeding the ducks (very tame, and hungry!) before stopping to have some lunch in the cafe. The food was homecooked and tasty, and the staff really made us feel that our service was valued. Nothing was too much trouble. Having a toddler, I am always sceptical about high chairs, but they were clean and well maintained. We were advised that our food would be 20 minutes but actually came quicker. I had a jacket potato with chilli, which also came with a side salad - proper salad leaves, cucumber slices and real tomato! The portions were plentiful and the chilli was beautiful! The cafe was spotless, hardly surprising seeing as one staff member spent the entire time we were there clearing up, wiping tables and checking customers were ok both inside and outside (you don't see that in many places anymore!).
We decided to see the Wallabies being fed but this was so popular (and we were a bit late) that we couldn't get in, so saw the meerkats instead and went back 10 minutes later - only to find the staff member still there, continuing to hand out food to people and encourage the wallabies to take the food. Watching her play with a wallaby baby in its mother's pouch was an example of the devotion the staff here have to their job. We fed a small wallaby towards the end of the session.
All in all, one of the very best attractions we have ever been to - would thoroughly recommend.
