The Seawood Hotel

Reviewed 4 September 2010

We are two seasoned Manhattanites who have had some great experiences this trip with wonderful B&B/Inn/hotel owners. But no one is as kind and genuine as the owners of Seawood. They went out of their way to make our stay special. The hotel is in the middle of a transformation -- from traditional and a bit stodgy to updated and stylish (n.b. they only do work in the off season so you won't be bothered). The hotel itself still has a lot of old world character, but most of the rooms have been updated to Elle Decor Magazine standards. We were first in room 11, which is very "bijoux" but well appointed. We were then moved to room 3 which is much bigger, has a killer bathroom with a wonderful view of the ocean and is very large. Try and book this one if you can. The breakfasts were great, and although we didn't eat dinner at the hotel, it smelled outstanding. It's location is second to none - beside the Lynton/Lynmouth cliff train and 20 minutes walk to Valley of the Rocks. With a location like this and such wonderful owners, you can't help but have a great stay at Seawood. I just hope we can return to see the fully transformed result in a few years.

Stayed at the Seawood Hotel for 3 nights. We were really surprised at how modern the hotel was inside. Great room, fantastic deep bath in room 3. Free internet, could play my IPOD...all we wanted. A great mix of old and new. Fun service from the great staff.

We have stayed at the Seawood Hotel for up to half a dozen times over the past few years which, in itself, must amount to a recommendation. Our liking for the hotel and our return to it repeatedly have been based upon a number of favourable factors: its location, its furnishings and cleanliness, excellent food and, above all else, the warm welcome and first class service from Kerinder and Russell and their staff. Now that the proprietors have updated the bathroom and shower facilities in all the bedrooms, they have surely created a holiday stopping place that is second to none. Without doubt, it has our highest recommendation for a hotel of this size.

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
