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

This hotel is first class. On arrival there was enough parking available unlike many B&B's or guest houses we later saw in Lynton. The owner was extremely friendly & welcoming. The room was spotlessly clean & we had lovely sea views from both windows. Very comfortable kingsize bed. The bathroom was stylish & contemporary. A great breakfast & choice of... More

Very good hotel, friendly and knowledgeable owner, excellent room, deliciously large and comfy bed, and first class bathroom. Splendid breakfast with fresh fruit salad and a large choice of cooked meals. Wifi in public areas. There is a short cut up to Lynton through the garden, which is very convenient.

If you're after a completely relaxing experience with incredible food. all sat literally on top of proper Exmoor heritage, book this hotel now. Mere steps from the funicular water-powered Lynton and Lynmouth cliff railway, this lovely pink (brown?) hotel has been beautifully refurbished by the present owners, and they garnish their lovely property with excellent breakfast and dinner and impeccable,...

My boyfriend and I stayed last week for 1 night for his birthday and I so I wish we could have stayed longer. We decided to visit Lynmouth as we had visited it some years ago but have only just discovered this wonderful boutique hotel! The Seawood is situated high up, very near the very top of the vernacular railway... More

The moment we arrived at Seawood we knew we made the right choice. Russ could not have been nicer with getting us settled in. Our room had a lovely view of the sea, however we had the misfortune of a couple misty days before finally taking full advantage of the great view on our last day. The room was spotlessly... More

recommend for the location as well as the interior. We had the suite looking out over the bay, on the top floor. The room itself is spacious enough, coming in you have a little seating area with windows overlooking the bay and some really cool rock formations on the right. Walking into the bedroom you find a large very comfortable... More
