Fantastic views, yet a little run down

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 June 2023
Although the accommodation is very rundown, it is very clean and you can not beat the views from the cottages.
Perched on a hill with views to the ocean, you awaken to chickens in the yard and the only thing interupting your view are beautiful Pine trees and rolling hills.
The reception is open periodically, however everyone is super friendly.
Car hire is a MUST. Reception organised this within an hour of our arrival; at a cost of $55 (AUD) per day all inclusive (yes, petrol and insurance!)

In my opinion 4 days is plenty of time to see the Island.

Take as much food as you can from the mainland, (as long as it meets quaratine laws and is vacuum sealed) food on the Island is expensive and limited, in the cottages there is a fully equipped, spotlessly clean, full kitchen which we used every day.

You will love your stay

We stayed a week in an apartment with the most spectacular views. The apartment was quite spacious, comfortable and warm. The full size kitchen was excellent for preparing the wonderful produce available on the island and the deck was ideal for soaking up the view with a glass of wine. Yes, the furnishings were a little dated but given the supply issues Norfolk experiences it is understandable and easily overlooked. We didn't eat in the restaurant as it was closed for the winter months, but having eaten there before can be thoroughly recommended.

Room tip: The hotel rooms are basic but priced accordingly. It is worth upgrading to an apartment or cottage.

My daughter and I stayed in a cottage here for 10 nights. We loved the cottage, it was roomy, clean, the beds were very comfortable and the views were amazing. We dined in the restaurant several times, the meals were good and reasonably priced. The picnic basket that was prepared for us was really good and was also highly recommended by other guests staying in the hotel. The grounds and gardens are well maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful.

We booked a prepaid accommodation, car hire, tours and meals package with Seaview and spent a week in an Ocean View room. The whole booking was well organised by Simon with plenty of time / tours / food included. The room was tidy and clean with a great view. We did have one breakfast tour cancelled at the last moment by the tour company and were unable to swap to an alternative so requested a refund. The refund arrived in our account within a few days fuss free.
Good week, good organisation and great destination.

Room tip: Book the car!

I stayed at Seaview with mum for a week and could not have stumbled on a better location. I wanted somewhere with separate rooms and a kitchenette. The beds were large and comfortable, and the living area was spacious. We did tours so were out a bit, however as there was rain at times when we were not on tours, it was great to have a cottage to settle into for a read or simply to hang out in while being captured by the view of Philip Island.
We had a couple of meals at the restaurant, which were great. Any return visit to Norfolk Island will see me booking here again.

We had a Seaview hotel room. A little dated but very clean and serviced several times during the week. Queen bed, ensuite, mini fridge, coffee tea etc. Little table and chair set outside to sit and take in the view. We had an all inclusive package that included meals in numerous places and tours etc all organised for us made the holiday so easy. Their is also a bottle shop and restaurant attached. All of the food was delicious especially the fish. Magnificent views. Friendly helpful staff. Highly recommend.
