Only stayed one night in Lynton on our way down to Cornwall and after looking at a few hotels in Lynmouth below this hotel was stars away from its competition. Lovely room, nicely decorated bedroom and bathroom room with awesome views. Host was lovely and breakfast was good too. Parking is good, but a challenge for a longer car, but... More

Stunning views from the 8 spacious bedrooms / suites, comfy beds, easy access and parking, great food and superb service, - nothing is too much trouble for their guests! Staff and owners do everything with a smile and you are made to feel really welcome from the moment you walk through the door, which is why many guests return year... More

Had a wonderful stay. Have booked again for October. Rooms lovely. Sky TV a nice touch. All been said in other reviews. Lynton and Lynmouth has been a real surprise. On a bright day it feels like northern Italy!

My parents were married on the 28th May 1945 and spent their honeymoon at The Seawood Hotel. This week we returned to celebrate their 70th Anniversary and what a wonderful time we had. This really is a lovely hotel. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the view from our rooms was fantastic . The oldest of our group... More

Had a beautiful weekend. Great hotel with a lovely atmosphere. Had breakfast out on the terrace in the morning sun with a view of the sea. Can't be beaten. Amazing place and highly recommended. Why needs to go abroad in the summer with places like these on our lovley Island.

A very warm welcome from the owner, beautiful rooms and sumptuous breakfasts. We had a brilliant stay and will definitely return. The views and general ambience just add to the stay. Worth trying the sauna after a long walk to Hunters Inn.

What a view, loads of walks and things to do in Lynton and Lynmouth. You don't need a car, leave it in the hotel carpark. If you can't be bothered to walk to Lynmouth get the Funicular, which is at the back of the hotel. Definitely visit the museum and the Hydro exhibition. Loads of birds including dippers and Rock...

Stayed here for two nights and have never felt so relaxed and welcomed at a hotel before. The location is superb - at the top of the Cliff Railway in Lynton - and right on the coast path. Our room, the bar, lounge and dining room all looked out onto the bay. The bedroom was large as was the bathroom... More

We stayed here for just one night together with our friends this Easter and we will definitely come for longer next time. It is a lovely place, where you feel welcome and well taken care for. Rooms were just lovely (and we had an up-grade too), clean, beautifully furnished and comfortable (plus add to it blissful views from windows). Breakfast... More

Stayed 2 nights April 9th and 10th. Warmly welcomed by the lady owner who was very helpful and obviously committed to providing a high standard of service. Our room was excellent (newly decorated) and the breakfast very nicely done - nothing too much trouble. No hesitation in recommending this place. We found the hotel to be quiet and with a... More
