This hotel is well situated with most rooms having a sea view. It is EXTREMELY well run by Richard and Jane who clearly pride themselves on looking after there customers.
The rooms are spotless with brasses polished so that you can see yourselves in them.
The breakfasts were excellent.
It is hard to find fault which is clearly a good thing for anyone considering a stay at Lynmouth. From a selfish point of view, its a shame that Shelleys does not provide lunch/dinner facilities with a 'manned bar' too as I strongly believe it would easily get more trade as whilst Lynmouth (and Lynton) are in beautiful settings, we did find the quality of some of the eateries and drinkies, abit wanting. The 'Rising Sun' at the front has by far the best quality (in our opinion) and this is supported by the numbers of customers it gets. Also supported too by the amount of locals that go in there. The Esplanade Fish Bar was really good too.
Lynmouth was a first for us and as we like Cornwall too, plus we like to spend a few days at various places on visits down the South West, we will return and its very likely too, that Shelleys will be 1st on the list (providing its a decent deal...We like decent deals!!). THANK YOU Richard and Jayne for an really enjoyable stay and your tips too, on what to do and where to go to get the most from Lynton and Lynmouth..
