Perfect locationPosted Jul 25, 2016
Pros: Gill's friendly, but non-intrusive service was perfect, and the food was imaginative and good.
Cons: The Expedia site mentioned spa services, which are not offered. Might mention the steep stairs and tight access for those with mobility issues.
Location: Porlock Weir is interesting and has good restaurants; Porlock Marsh and the sea are close; lots of good walks.
I was warmly welcomed by the owner, Gill, who was full of useful information about the area, and kindly made me a pot of tea on arrival. The information office is just across the street, and they were also very helpful. The local bus from Minehead to Porlock Weir stops conveniently right outside Sea View. The breakfast menu was extensive and you can select what you want (and the time you want it served) the night before. The dining room is a bit tight if several guests come down at once - it's a very old house and the rooms are small, though there are a lot of them and the place has a Tardis-like capacity! Free parking is available nearby, which is a plus though it makes unloading anything heavy a bit of a pain. The narrow road in front of the house means you have to pull up onto the pavement. I was aware of traffic noise and pedestrians well into the night. I felt free to come and go as I pleased without bothering anyone. My single room had an ensuite bathroom, which I could barely get in and out of to be honest (I am large, but still...). The doorway is about 18" wide and the shower cubicle fills the corner inside the door; a toilet and sink share the remaining tiny space. Great sea view from the first floor. The room decor was a bit quirky, but all the basics were provided: tea/coffee making, tissues, toiletries, hair dryer, TV. Wi-fi is provided and worked well. The room was bright during the day, and a blind and curtains kept light out at night.

Excellent location.Posted Jul 13, 2016
Pros: Location and breakfast.
Cons: Nothing to note.
Location: Great walking country and lovely town.
We had a very warm welcome from our hostess. The breakfast was very comprehensive and delicious. Our room (1) featured a bed with heavier coverings than we are used to but this is just a personal viewpoint, (We use a summer duvet all year). The bottom line is "book this accommodation and you won't be disappointed."

Expedia calls this a 4* HotelPosted Jul 3, 2016
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, lovely old house, room with a nice view, paintings all over the place
Cons: rather basic room and bathroom, no shower
We were looking for 3-5*hotels, when this B&B popped up. The local rates, being less than 50% of the Expedia rate, would very well match the quality of this B&B - but again, even in this review Expedia calls this place a 4* hotel. In many ways this is a nice, old place - but it is by no means a 4* hotel

A relaxing StayPosted May 18, 2016 on Hotels
Porlock was beautiful & I am already planning another visit for pleasure

Wonderful WelcomePosted Mar 14, 2016
Gill, our landlady, gave us a wonderful welcome and we were able to settle in very easily. Our room was very quiet and had all we needed for a one night stay. Gill's breakfasts were delicious and set us up for a whole day. We loved wandering around Porlock and our walk to Porlock Weir was delightful.

An excellent, charming B+B filled with genuine character. The hostess was friendly and accommodating. The breakfast certainly deserves its award and was extremely delicious and tasty!

Great B&B for walkersPosted Oct 17, 2015 on Hotels
We stayed one night during our walking trip along the South West Coast Path. Seaview B&B was in a great location and the breakfast was fabulous. Our hosts were helpful and welcoming.
