From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Russ and Karinda are wonderful hosts. We stayed in room 10 - (Lynmouth Bay) could not fault any aspect of the room or the bathroom and the views are beautiful. Ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel both were fantastic. We will be recommending this beautiful gem to... More

'If only'.......all small sub-10 bedroomed privately owned hotels in this country were as delightful, so......... 'thank goodness' for The Seawood Hotel. All the positive observations to date precisely reflect our experience. This hotel represents a benchmark and a lesson in how to run a hotel efficiently and well given the increasing & ludicrous impositions imposed by endless new government regulations.... More

I recently spent one week at Seawood. From the moment I arrived I received such a warm welcome and that warm and friendly treatment continued the whole week. The food was superb and the evening meals provided a great choice and were as good as or better than many I have had in more expensive restaurants throughout the the country.... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Seawood, sadly for just one night. We were made very welcome, it is a beautiful house in a fantastic location. Breakfast was great, we also had our supper at the Exmoor pizza and pasta restaurant run by Russ. Very good pizza! We will be back for longer next time.

We stayed here for a few days for our wedding anniversary and had a lovely stay. The owners, Russ and Kerinda are a really friendly couple and go out of their way to make you feel welcome in their hotel. The hotel location is well situated for local walks to Watersmeet and Valley of Rocks. The rooms themselves are spacious... More

We had a lovely visit to Seawood Hotel. The owners, Russ and Kerinda, could not have been more welcoming, helpful and friendly. The location was quiet and secluded with lovely views across the bay, yet it was only a short walk to centre of Lynton and to the funicular railway down to Lynmouth. The room was spacious and clean with... More

We had a great stay here and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Lovely interior and beautiful building with stunning views. Great location with the train at the back of the garden. Very warm and welcoming wished we could have stayed longer.

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
