We stayed in the spacious, lovely Countisbury Suite. It has a small kitchenette and a small room, ideal for suitcases. Superb views across the Bristol Channel to Wales. Wonderful breakfasts supplied by the very welcoming hosts, Kerinda and Russ. Lots of things to do directly from the hotel, the spectacular coastal path to the Valley of the Rocks and beyond,... More

Thank you very much to the owner and his son for a lovely experience visiting your hotel for afternoon tea. The afternoon tea was the best one of our holiday. We sat outside on the terrace overlooking the bay, a lovely spot to sit and relax. Nothing was too much trouble. Your hospitality was superb, would love to think we... More

Great Place, however, when it comes to hosts, one has to consider personality clashes! For us, we felt uncomfortable by the hosts over confident lecture on where to go, what to do, rules of the house, etc, that each guest received before being even shown to one's room. Dealing with the general public is never easy, and one has to... More

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
