Great value for money, I have stayed at the Sea View several times in the last few years. All of the rooms have been clean with beautiful views. Walking distance to restaurants & pubs. We will be back again & again for sure

We stayed 2 nights. Room was clean, and WIFI was available. We were up in the top level, which afforded great views over the Endeavour River. We had our camper trailer, but were feeling lazy. Plenty of room to park larger vehicles.

Very Clean and well presented room, ours was a 1st floor deluxe suit which is a bit newer that the Original rooms which I stayed in about 10 years ago.

Basic accommodation but Seaview Motel met all our needs, central, clean, tidy and helpful friendly staff. Most importantly bed was comfortable and motel quiet. We were a few doors from reception and two doors from the pool. There was a BBQ area for guests and it was lovely to sit on along the patio and soak up the cool breeze...

Stayed here for one night in deluxe room. The bathroom seemed rather a new renovation. The two double beds were slightly soft for my taste. The room was clean.

We stayed here for 2 nights and 3 days. The pool is awesome, rooms are clean. Only bad thing was the bottom bathroom in unit 30 made a loud, rattling noise when you put the shower on. When we got to the unit I straight away went into the pool which was beautiful and clean. I would love to come...
