Shelley's
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Lynmouth
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We have just had a long weekend at Shelley's, what a great hotel, fantastically clean, great staff, fab breakfast cant rate it high enough we will be back for sure. Nothing was too much trouble, the location is great, and they even include the cost of parking in your stay and as a added bonus the ticket they give you can be used in any of 10 local car parks. the hotel is very quiet ensuring a good nights sleep. The hotel has honesty bar which is well stocked with good local ale, lager spirits and wine plus mixers and to be honest the bar appeared well priced under £12,00 for a bottle of wine great value. The rooms with a private conservatory have a great view over the sea and worth the extra cost.

Stayed four nights from 25th August having made a short notice decision to visit Shelley’s once again. We weren't disappointed, everything about the stay was excellent as it always has been on previous visits. Spotlessly clean accommodation, a substantial and varied breakfast menu. Well done to Jane and Richard for all their hard work in ensuring everything was just right during our stay. As a bonus the weather was magnificent, making it a pleasure to walk the various footpaths and take in some of the breathtaking scenery. We had two evening meals at Le Bistro - so enjoyable the first time we had to re-book again. Good quality fresh food, mainly fish dishes with a couple of alternatives available if fish is not your thing. On another occasion we dined at the Rising Sun. Again, excellent quality food, slightly more expensive than Le Bistro but nevertheless another top quality restaurant, surprising indeed to find two like this in such a small village. Would recommend you book in advance if thinking of visiting them.

Day 2 of our walk along the SW coast path and we were received by Richard & Jane who welcomed us to their beautiful hotel.
Spotlessly clean and welcoming, what a glorious end to a great day of walking. After settling into our lovely room with a 'conservatory with a view' we decided to cool off by going for a swim on the beach as it was high water and the Bristol channel was glassy calm for a change !
Fantastic nights sleep and a great breakfast set us for another days walking .
Highly recommended, we'll be back.

Room Tip: The conservatory rooms overlooking the village/channel are excellent.

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Shelley's, a beautiful place, extremely comfortable, extremely clean and very well maintained, definitely the best B&B we have stayed in. Breakfast is good too!

We love Lynmouth, so peaceful and when we do visit again we will most definitely be staying at Shelley's.

Thank you once again Richard and Jane for your kind hospitality and making us so welcome.

Great service and beautiful views
The TVs are out of the 70's and the owners are a touch reminiscent of Basil and Sybil but charming nonetheless.
We would go again.
A little pricey maybe.
They should offer snacks and teas in the afternoon to maximise use of the lovely building - currently everyone goes out which is fine on a nice day.

We have stayed at this delightful hotel before and it is always our first choice when we want to visit North Devon. The clean comfort of the rooms,the more than adequate breakfasts, the scenic views from the hotel, the convenience of being a stones throw from Lynmouth's famous River Lyn and all the shops and of coarse the friendliness and hospitality of Jane and Richard. Can,t wait for our next visit ! Rob and Jan

Room Tip: rooms with conservatorys have a very good view point
