“Perfect”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

Stayed for three nights second week of May with my wife. Booked the spacious Bay Room which overlooks the village and gives great views of the sea.
Its our second visit and have every intention of returning for a third.
Why? Because its a lovely hotel run by lovely people who look after you and make you feel very welcome.
The area is ideal for walkers and Shelleys is a wonderful place to retreat to when you've been walking all day.

Room Tip: Book the Bay Room. Great views.

Very comfortable indeed. Spent a really relaxing weekend in Lynmouth and Shelly’s was a major contribution to the time away. Very clean accommodation throughout, room well appointed with a lovely balcony with views overlooking the village. Very hospitable owners who go out of their way to ensure you are well served. Great breakfast menu. To be honest a really pleasant small hotel. Will we stay again ? You bet we will.

Had a really lovely couple of nights at Shelleys at the beginning of May. Huge rooms with very comfortable beds and sea view. Breakfast was just right. Wonderful hosts. Many thanks. Lynmouth is a typical Devon seaside town. River and coastal walks are great too. Les & Shelley

Room Tip: Room 3/The Bay Room was at the front with sea views.

Shelley's is a nice hotel wich is located in a great place near the river. From the hotel you can see the sea, so the landscape is amazing. The room is confortable, and the owners are very hepful and kind. The English breakfast is tasty and very good.
No doubt you...if you arrive to Lynmouth you must stop over in Shelley's

We had a lovely couple of nights at Shelley's for our romantic birthday getaway. The hotel is in a perfect location in the village centre overlookiing the bay. Our room was tastefully decorated with breathtaking sea views, and was more than clean and the cooked to order breakfasts were just excellent. Hosts Jane & Richard were amiable and always available to give you a lot of advise and information for what you can see and where to eat. We chose to eat at the Harbourside Restaurant one evening and visited Lynton Cinema the other. Shelley's is very reasonably priced and good value, thoroughly recommended for a short getaway break.
