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

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,...
