Had food here at with weekend, couldn't fault it. We had a drink while we were given menus and gave our order. We were taken into the conservatory, where we had 5 courses. Each one was Devine. The 2 ladies serving us couldn't do enough for us, they were so nice and friendly. Definitely worth a trip

Had dinner in seaview house hotel with my family, 15 of us and not one of us had a complaint. Great food, great attentive staff and plenty of everything. Some of us booked in for bed and breakfast and once again, compliments all around. Great nights sleep, good sized family bedroom, with 2 bathrooms. No pre cooked breakfasts like you...

This hotel appears to be from another age. Very old fashioned and traditional but I'm afraid in a way that didn't offer great value. From the embroidered table mats to the duvet-less beds it reeked of Ireland of yesteryear. The staff were pleasant with hard worker immigrant service. Hotels that do not offer wi fi shouldn't advertise that they do....

Kathleen runs a truly beautiful hotel and restaurant. The hotel itself is full of antiques which I could have spent the evening looking at. Mary looked after us in the restaurant and really couldn't have done anymore for us. The food was clearly high quality and cooked to perfection! I would highly recommend anybody in the area to go in...

My wife and I decided to visit Ireland after our daughter's wedding, and our daughter and new husband treated us to a dinner at Seaview House. The hotel has old-world charm and the restaurant, if dated, has that same charm. The grounds of the hotel are wooded, and located just off Bantry Bay. Service was attentive, but subdued, and the...

Now don't get me wrong, the Seaview House is not a bad hotel but, on our recent trip to Ireland, we stayed in three hotels and the Seaview House was both the most expensive and least satisfactory of the three. But let's start with the positives. The breakfasts were some of the most varied and well-prepared of any hotel at...

This hotel was a revelation. It is owned and managed by a marvellous person who makes sure that her guests are comfortable and well cared for. The staff are caring and friendly and a hot water bottle was even provided for my elderly mother at night. We were thoughtfully placed next door to my Mother on the ground floor. Our...

The hotel has lovely grounds. There are lots of antiques, comfortable chairs, and the atmosphere of a country house with a gracious, welcoming owner. Breakfast was very good. Dinner, however, was not. We were traveling with my daughter and had two rooms. Both rooms were pretty. Ours was adequate although the bathroom was very small and the room, hot. My...
