Seaview Hotel - Dog Friendly Accommodation in Seaview, Isle of Wight‘Everything here is a dream. You're 50 yards from the water in a small seaside village that sweeps you back to a nostalgic past.’ Alistair Sawday’s.
Seaview is a picturesque fishing village on the island’s north east coast. With its quaint streets, charming buildings and Sea View dinghies bobbing up and down on the Solent, there’s a beguiling atmosphere of yesteryear all around – a perfect antidote to the noise and clamour of modern life.
At the heart of the village lies the The Seaview Hotel which has evolved over time to appeal to many different people including couples looking for a chic coastal getaway, discerning foodies, families in search of a carefree holiday and those in need of a good, honest pint. This unique combination makes the Seaview Hotel stand out as one of the best hotels on the Isle of Wight.
The Seaview Hotel is dog friendly and boasts a wide range of accommodation even including an old bank!
Within the hotel are 13 rooms and one apartment, all individually styled and inspired by coastal living. If you prefer something more contemporary then we have 6 superior and 1 standard room situated in The Modern - our newest addition located to the rear of the hotel in Rope Walk. These luxurious rooms were designed by Keech Green in their signature timeless, yet traditional, style.
For something more eclectic then why not stay in The Old Bank. The Old Bank, next door to the hotel, is the former Bank and was once voted the prettiest bank in England. It has been cleverly converted into 5 spacious suites, one of which sleeps up to 8 people. There are many original features including the old counter and vault doors!
Myrtle Cottage, our self-catering accommodation, is a popular choice with families. Myrtle is an old fisherman’s cottage adjacent to the hotel. After a busy day on the beach or exploring the island you can simply relax in your own home away from home. Dogs are most welcome. We do charge a cleaning fee.
The Pump Bar
An endearing and unusual feature of the Seaview is the Pump Bar – a traditional pub, decorated with seafaring paraphernalia, located at the heart of the hotel. You can expect a laid-back atmosphere with a wealth of local ales on tap and serving a traditional bar classic menu. Low on ceremony but high on flavour, the Pump Bar is caught in a time warp and a fine example of what a pub used to be – and the locals agree!
‘There's a great bar classic menu featuring meat and vegetables from the hotel's own farm. And if you love seafood you are in for a treat as the main restaurant menu has a focus on outstanding fish and seafood.'
Good, unpretentious food coupled with relaxed informal dining is at the heart of the Seaview Hotel. We are lucky to have our very own farm supplying beef, pork and venison as well as fresh vegetables and herbs. Alongside traditional crops we have planted a variety of heritage vegetables bringing some new colour and flavour to the table. We try to keep our food offering as ‘local’ as possible and work with a multitude of island suppliers, for example it’s not unusual for our head chef, Bruce Theobald, to know when our fish was caught, by whom and on which boat.
Whether you are eating in the restaurant or bars we recommend booking at least 24 hours in advance
“Utterly charming hotel by the sea. Staff very friendly and they will even set up breakfast for you in the Naval Mess if you want to eat with your dog. Food excellent and hotel stuffed full of nautical and local history. Beaches unspoilt. ”
