The SeaView was the first hotel in Phillipsburg, opening in 1940. It has clearly been modernized--excellent a/c, tv, modern windows, bathroom fittings, but is currently being completely refurbished following a change of ownership during the pandemic. The building works while we were there were not a problem but will add a swimming pool, and more luxurious fittings to the rooms. The breakfast service was suspended during our visit but the Double Dutch Cafe on the front towrds the sea offered excellent coffee, juice and criossants. Currently the overnight rate is excellent value--prices will no doubt go up once the restoration work has finished. it will still be a great place to stay while in the Great Bay area.
