“A hotel benefiting from enthusiastic and caring ownership”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2010

We stayed at the Seawood for a week on Half Board. Room 11 although a little small had double aspect sea views, a very comfortable bed and a newly refurbished luxury shower room. The food was excellent with wide choices at each meal, complimented by always being cooked to order and made from quality fresh local ingredients. The hotel has easy walking access to Lynton and the cable car to Lynmouth. Highly recommended.

We have stayed in many hotels over the years and can honestly say that my stay at the Seawood surpassed my expectations. Check-in was smooth, the room had the most lovely french antique furniture and I felt very looked after. The evening meal was delicious. Fresh fish and chocolate fondant. Kerinda and Russell looked after us and we cant wait to go back!! Highly recommended

Stayed at the Seawood with my wife and 2 daughters on Fri, Sat, Sun 23 – 26 July.
The hotel, being well positioned along the north walk had a good ambiance, was nicely decorated and very clean. Breakfast was top quality as was the evening meal. The Spanish waiter was excellent – very professional.
We were made to feel very welcome by the owners Kerinder and Russell – this made the whole stay very enjoyable!

Yes the hotel does come with a Spanish waiter (Alberto rather than Manuel) and yes he was new to the ropes when we arrived (he soon got into the swing of things), but the Fawltyesque similarities stop there.

We have stayed in many great hotels in the UK and worldwide, but this goes down as one of our most memorable hotel experiences bar none.The hotel is in a perfect location on the North Walk with views across the Bristol Channel to Wales and right next to the Cliff Railway. We both loved the property itself which is full of character and is being very sympathetically refurbished by the new owners. However, what made it for us was the welcoming nature of Kerinda and Russ who managed to make us feel like weekend guests in an Edwardian country house (with a modern twist!).

This was a very relaxing break and it left us hungry for more as there is so much to see in the area, even in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. We definitely hope to return and recommend it unreservedly. This is a business that defintely deserves to succeed!

It was such a surprise as a solo traveller to get a double bed in a lovelly new room and bathroom, without financial penalty. Most single rooms are around the back near the boiler, but not here. Kerinda and Russ are brilliant hosts and knew exactly how to make me feel at home, no request was too difficult and all the services came with a smile. The food was really good and always hot.

The hotel is on the quiet Northwalk but just a short walk from town, bus stops or breath taking walks.

Kerinda and Russ thank you for one of my best ever holidays...well done!

Decided to book this hotel on the basis of reviews we had read on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! We had a lovely spacious newly reburbished room and ensuite. The food was excellent and the hotel superbly situated at the top of the unique water powered Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway. Hosts Russell and Kerinda were very friendly and helpful. The terrace was a great place to relax before dinner after a long days walking on the coastal path.
