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.
