‘She thinks of nothing but the Isle of Wight, and she calls it The Island, as if there were no other island in the world’ Jane Austen, Mansfield Park.
Imagine the perfect, British seaside idyll. An intimate, small jewel of hotel that instantly feels like home, where the sea beckons at the end of the sleepy street, and the head chef conjures up classic feasts from the farm and the fisherman so tasty, such as the famous crab ramekin, you will never want to leave.
Welcome to the Seaview Hotel on the Isle of Wight. For a hundred and fifty years, this laid-back seaside pit stop has been a magnet for the glitterati – to honeymooners and families looking for that most elusive of things – the perfect seaside vacation. What they all have in common is that they have stumbled across a little slice of England where you can leave the maddening crowd behind, and just lark beside the seaside.
The Seaview Hotel is neither to grand or too laidback, somehow, it is just perfect. It is at the very centre of life in the quaint, pretty seaside town of Seaview, situated on the North East coast of the island, just a mile or along the famous sands from the elegant Victorian town of Ryde.
The most wonderful thing about staying at this charming hotel is the sense that life is lived deliciously, in the slow lane. In summer guests linger over lunch in the chic courtyard and watch the world go by over a bowl of delicious soupe de poisson or posh fish n chips. In winter, go for a wind in the hair walk on the beach, and then sit in one of the cosy bars or the snug and feast on robust, well-executed classical French cooking by the head chef, Alan Staley, who learnt his craft in the kitchens of The Savoy and Chewton Glen. The real stars are the wonderful local and sustainable ingredients, which Alan carefully sources from the hotel’s farm and the local fisherman, Captain Stan in Bembridge. Book quickly, and go and savour the amazing food – before the secret is out.
