We stayed one night but it was a fantastic experience. Jayne and Richard were fabulous hosts. Lovely room which was spotless and a had brilliant view of the sea from the window of our room. Breakfast was fabulous with so much choice.

Room tip: Ask for room with view....

We were visiting Shelley's on a Sunday in June on a very warm and sunny weekend. Lynmouth was very busy, parking was initially tricky, partly because we have a big car that doesn't fit in a small space, and partly due to the influx of visitors for the day. Shelley's doesn't have it's own parking so at peak times you have to accept you won't be close, but by 5pm it was fine and we could park in the car park opposite the hotel. If you pay for the day ticket you can use all of the car parks in the town without having to pay again - keep your ticket.

We were staying for just one night as this was only a short mini break for us. Our room was very nice. It was spacious, had a good size bathroom and the luxury of a conservatory area and balcony with views. The TV was a little small. Wifi was available throughout the hotel.

The welcome we received from Jane was very friendly and inviting. We were introduced to our room and everything the hotel has to offer.

One thing I really liked was the honesty bar. I like honesty bars because I think they really bring out the best in us. How can you be dishonest at an honesty bar? Anyway, the prices were also fine, no ridiculous prices for a bottle of wine (£11.95 for all wines) normally bought from a supermarket.

Our breakfast was really nice. Anything you could want, unless you want a sausage, because apparently people hadn't been asking for sausages so now they offer more bacon instead. Fine for me as I like bacon!

Room temperature despite the warm weather was really good. Opening the conservatory doors gave a good breeze and the bed and bedding (a separate sheet for those of us that don't want a heavy quilt when it is 20 degrees) was well appreciated.

Jane and Richard were very friendly and helpful hosts. Richard had our bill all ready for us when we were ready to leave.

We would recommend this B&B without hesitation.

The hotel itself is perfect. Elegant but comfortable, spotlessly clean and tidy. Our room (Bay Room) was large with built-in wardrobe, plenty of furniture and a lovely table and chairs in the bay window to watch the comings and goings of this end of Lynmouth. The soothing sound of running water was everywhere, we weren't sure whether it was the sea or the rivers cascading over the rocks. The location itself is perfect, overlooking Lynmouth Bay and the sea/channel beyond and a short walk to the shops and restaurants..

What really made it outstanding however were our hosts, Richard and Jane. We have never met two nicer, hardworking people anywhere we have stayed. They seem to be on a personal mission to ensure that everything possible is done to ensure their guests needs are met yet in an unobtrusive and low key manner. Despite the amount of effort they excerted during the day they still had time to stop and chat with guests : outstanding hosts.

Thank you Richard and Jane!

Room tip: Call and speak to Richard or Jane and you'll know exactly what you're getting.

This was a late booking for us but we were so glad that we had decided to book here.
The welcome was lovely, the room was fantastic, roomy, very clean plus also for me a bonus it had a bath and not just a shower (with plenty of hot water).
The breakfast was top notch with plenty of choices from full English to scrambled eggs and salmon.
Our host's Richard and Jane were more than happy to engage with their guests and I would have to say that my only disappointment was we could only stay a couple nights.
I would have no problem going back and staying here again or for that fact recommending it to family and friends.
If you want to visit the lovely Lynmouth, Lynton and surrounding area and want to feel you are staying somewhere special and a little luxurious (but not paying an extortionate amount of money) then I would thoroughly recommend Shelley's.
Thank you Jane and Richard

This is one of the most comfortable and hospitable establisments we have ever stayed in. Jane and Richard could not have been more welcoming and helpful throughout the week. The bedrooms and lounge were delightful, and the breakfasts were excellent. On top of all this, Shelleys has a magnificent location close to the centre of Lynmouth and near the car parks.
