This is the third time we have stayed at Seawood, and Russ and Kerinda has always made us extremely welcome. Eating in the hotel is first class, and Kerinda always produces excellent evening meals. The cooked breakfasts are worth a visit alone. The Watersmeet suite has fantastic sea views. And the walks around the area are stunning! Will definitely be... More

As regular visitors to the Lynmouth and Lynton area, it took several false starts before we adopted the Seawood as our venue of choice. The beauty of the whole area speaks for itself, but with the Seawood studded into the cliff at the bottom of the village of Lynton, it’s either a 10 minute walk down a vertiginous switchback, well...

My wife and I brought our daughter and son-in-law from Texas for a short stay 2 nights ago, just before the season proper starts. Russ and Kerinda couldn't have been more welcoming. Wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, vast local knowledge available if you ask for it, thoroughly comfortable surroundings and beds, superb cooking and amazingly good value. For a hotel of this... More

The Seawood is a fabulous hotel which has been recently re-furbished to the highest level and is spotlessly clean. Breakfast & evening meals are excellent using local ingredients wherever possible. Russ & Kerinda are brilliant hosts - very friendly and could not do enough for us to make our stay really, really one we will never forget. My wife &... More

What a super place to stay! The hotel is delightful. It is very clean, has yummy food and is in an excellent location. The hosts were so helpful and hospitable. We felt very welcomed and couldn't have stayed in a better place. It is the kind of place where you feel at home! We just wish we'd booked a few... More

Arriving at Lynton around 6.15pm on a Sunday evening in October, we headed for this hotel as it was recommended by tripadvisor. My wife went in to ask if a room was available and was told on;y a suite at £160 for the night reduced to £140. She asked to see it and on the way there was insulted by... More

Dear sir, shame on you for misusing TripAdvisor by misrepresenting the facts. On the Sunday evening when you arrived in your new BMW and stayed sitting in your car, we had already closed the restaurant. When your lovely wife came in and asked if a room was available I explained that we only had our most expensive room and that... More

We stayed here for 5 nights & were looked after very well by Russell & Kerinda. We stayed in the Countisbury Suite which is very comfortable & would recommend this hotel highly. There are some excellent walks & restaurants in the local area & Lynmouth is easily accessible during the day via the cliff railway which is right beside the... More
