“return visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Once again a lovely stay at Shelleys. The hosts are always so welcoming, and everything was as clean and comfortable as always. The breakfast is superb, with top quality everything, and piping hot tea and coffee which is so often lacking in 4 * hotels! The room was very comfortable with an excellent shower. The view from our room is second to none.Once again thank you Shelleys, cannot wait to return.

We really enjoyed our stay. Very friendly greeting and warm hospitality offered at all times.
Super room, with a lovely view, and breakfast was delicious! Hope to stay again soon.

Room Tip: Pick a balcony room, super view.

I remember reading this at a hotel some years ago,"ten years -enough said", and thinking,stick in the mud.However,my wife and i have been coming to Shelleys for ten years now and you could say we`re stuck but certainly not in the mud.infact for stuck substitute STRUCK.Yes struck by the fact that in ten years the compassion and attention to detail shown by Richard and Jane to my wife and myself is something people are lucky to find in one stay, let alone for ten years. It`s difficult to not sound bias with ten years behind us , however we stayed at plenty of places we would not stay at again,before finding Shelleys.So if you`re looking to have a few days away from the kids or grandkids ( no children under 12 at the hotel) want a little restful peace and tranquillity with great walks and scenery with no small amount of Shelley history thrown in ,then Shelleys may just be the place for you.Roy and Chris Harlow Nottingham.a

Back again, this was our second short break at Shelley's, last year we stayed for our anniversary.
This time we chose a Conservatiory Balcony Room, what a brilliant idea for relaxing and watching the world go by.
Jane & Richard made us most welcome again, Shelley's is very comfortable, tastefully furnished and good value for money, and I almost forgot the kedgeree for breakfast, absolutely delicious!
Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Conservatiory Balcony Room

We have often stayed in this area, and were looking for a different view. This B&B (not a hotel, no restaurant) is very clean and well run. The hosts are friendly and the views are wonderful across the bay. Such a good location to explore the many walks, but beware of dining in Lynton and trying to get a taxi down that steep hill. They do not work in the evenings....
We had a room with a conservatory and balcony that took advantage of the superb location. Our only issue was that the bed has reached the end of comfortable life and the very small television was located in a cabinet, restricting view and especially sound.
The honesty bar is an excellent idea, and breakfast was plenitful and varied.

Room Tip: Conservatory rooms give a great view and that sea air 24/7

As always our stay at Shelley's was a wonderful experience. We have stayed at Shelley's for the past 4 years and the standards have always remained excellent. The hotel is immaculate, the breakfast delicious and the rooms spotless and very comfortable. The owners, Jane and Richard, are excellent hosts. We cannot wait to return for another relaxing stay

Shelley's Hotel offers superb accommodation just above Lynmouth harbour. We had a beautiful spacious room with a juliet balcony with sea view. Jane & Richard make you feel very welcome and provide an excellent breakfast. We will be using this hotel on our next vist to Lynmouth.
