We visited Lynton and Lynmouth for the first time and stayed in the Seawood Hotel. The hotel is a short way down a narrow road and has its own car park. Checkin was simple and straightforward and the room on the top floor was beautifully presented with a lovely view over the bay towards the cliffs. We were able to watch the surfers each day from the room. Breakfast was lovely with a very good choice and ready very quickly. There is also a beautiful lounge to sit and enjoy a drink. And there is an honesty bar providing beer, wines, and spirits if required. From the end of the drive you just need to turn left for a beautiful walk along the cliff path ending at Castle Rock and beyond. The walk down to Lynmouth was easy and Lynmouth was lovely to walk round. The walk back is VERY hard and steep. Overall we had a lovely stay and wished we had booked longer than our three night break!

We stayed in Ragged Jack back in September, but have only just got around writing this review, The Hotel is great, superb views from the room and the hotel, plus great service. I would often sit in our room and take in the view, it's just beautiful we even managed to have breakfast on the terrace one morning when the weather was good, which happened to be my birthday so this was such a nice treat. The staff are a real credit to the hotel, special thanks go out to Laura and Peter (although I think I may have misspelt their names) they really do look after you, and make you feel welcome and go the extra mile, the breakfasts are superb. There are so many great walks on your doorstep, but it's also a good base to go to nearby places. They were no longer doing evening meals - but did send a recommendation of places to book, we stayed a week and booked in a different place every night, definitely book the old Bank early to make sure you get a table as it only small and is superb food, it was quite nice knowing what restaurant you were going to every night, and we had some great meals, all inc the Thai are in walking distance of the hotel. Lynton and Lymington are both great little places to potter around in. Having never been to Lynton before, we will definitely be back and return to the Seawood hotel. We loved the honesty bar, saved us having to find a bar after dinner and we always met other guests and chatted about where we had been for dinner etc.

This time we stayed at Seawood was our 3rd visit we love it here, it's just so beautiful and peaceful, the hotel is perfect. Unfortunately they were not doing evening meals due to not being able to find a chef, that was a bit disappointing but I know there have been problems in many places like this at the present. It really is worth a visit but maybe when they are able to do evening meals as the views from the terrace are just so special.

Anyone visiting this area should stay at this boutique hotel, the minute you walk in you are looked after by Launo and Petne who are professional, friendly and extremely attentive. This hotel is spotlessly clean and the breakfast was amazing. The hot-tub was opened up for us to enjoy and unwind. As one hotelier to another, this place is an absolute gem. You’ve got everything right. We cannot wait to return again, thank you.

We were lucky enough to stay in the “Watersmeet Suite” on the top floor - we arrived when it was dark - so when we opened the blinds in the morning- the view of Lynmouth Bay was just breathtaking. The hosts were amazing from the time we arrived to the moment we left - always smiling & helpful - you are not just a number at this hotel - you are part of the family. The decor was a little fancy for our usual taste - but the room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. It was lovely to have both a bath and a shower. Would definitely recommend this hotel in Lynton
