GET AWAY FROM IT ALL & RELAX….
We have visited Shelley’s year after year for about 9 years now. It is our escape from the rush of City life and we try to visit at least twice a year for long weekends and occasionally longer. This is a superb Hotel location in a beautiful setting overlooking Lynmouth bay and harbour. The setting is peaceful and it is a convenient location for easy access to local walks and villages and of course even further afield. There are many stunning views and perhaps the most awesome is that of Countisbury Hill. Something that money cannot buy unless you buy the Hotel!
From the Hotel windows we have seen a Badger crossing the forecourt and in the nearby Trees above the High Street there is a resident Heron that I have sometimes seen feeding in the River Lyn. On our visit last week we had the sad sight of a rare 60’ dead fin whale that had been washed up on the beach.
Without any doubt this has to be the best Hotel in the area. Both Richard & Jane are very friendly and extremely helpful at all times. The breakfast cooked by Jane; a great cook and usually served by Richard is superb. The bacon is cooked to perfection, the eggs are perfect whatever your choice and all the produce is first class. The breakfast is second to none and consistently of a high standard with good quality products across the whole range of choices from full English to Waffles.
Richard and Jane work tirelessly to maintain very high standards. Service standards therefore are high and particular attention is paid to cleanliness throughout the Hotel. The rooms are always clean and well maintained by staff. All rooms are well appointed and in good decorative order. There is always a welcoming, relaxed and cosy atmosphere prevailing.
We have never been disappointed and over the years have developed a friendship and been made to feel a part of the family.
We have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel and are looking forward to our next visit.
To Richard & Jane a big thank you it was a real pleasure as usual.
