Your Destination —
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. 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.
There's always something fun to see and do in the Isle of Wight, including:
Seaview Wildlife Encounter is situated on the outskirts of Seaview and is the Isle of Wight's leader in hands-on animal experiences. There are lots of close-up opportunities and interactive animal experiences and Keeper presentations. They also offer one-on-one encounters with Penguin and Meerkat.
The Hersey Nature Reserve is a haven for birdwatchers, located between Seaview and Springvale, it has a lake, marshland and reed beds. There's also a hide for bird watching and the reserve is noted for its wading birds.
Brading Roman Villa is one of the finest Roman sites in the UK and offers a unique insight into Roman life in Britain from beautifully preserved mosaic floors to an extensive collection of Roman archaeology.
Osborne House is Queen Victoria's seaside palace. The extensive grounds immediately surrounding the house are fun to explore and have stunning views of the Solent – you can also visit the private beach.
Your Hotel —
At the heart of the village lies 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 cusine of the restaurant is of particular interest, in fact Head Chef Bruce Theobald has won a Bib Gourmand at the Seaview Hotel from the Michelin Guide 2016.
Some services may incur additional charges, payable locally.

Focus on Fish Restaurant
The main restaurant features the Focus on Fish menu showcasing fresh fish and seafood. Working with local fishermen many of the fish are landed within sight of the hotel and could be on your plate within hours of being landed. Chef Bruce Theobald began his career in the Michelin starred kitchens of the Grosvenor House and the Capital Hotel. He has worked alongside many talented chefs including Richard Corrigan, Philip Britten and recently Billy Reid at Danesfield House. Bruce aims to deliver skilful yet refreshingly simple food.
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!
The Naval Bar
Modelled on a naval wardroom, officer’s mess-cabin, the Naval Bar is home to a magnificent collection of naval pictures, photographs and artefacts. The collection now extends along the Hotel corridors and is one of the most extensive private collections to be found on the Isle of Wight. The Naval Bar is a perfect place for relaxing and enjoying an informal meal or drink and where talking about politics, religion or business is strictly frowned upon!
