Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Lynmouth
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Friendly owners, very helpful. Great location in Lynmouth and an excellent view of the sea. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast selection was excellent and included fresh waffles. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Juliet balcony room with sea views is a great room. Really good view of Lynmouth and the sea.

Stayed for two nights at the end of June in a conservatory balcony room. Richard and Jane could not have been more welcoming and the room was well furnished and the bathroom spotless. Shelley's is in an excellent location in Lynmouth with fantastic sea views. The conservatory balcony is a bonus - a great place to sit as the sun sets (or read a book if it rains). A very relaxing experience all round. Thank you Richard and Jane, we'll be back.....

We had to decide where to go for weekend (last minutes really) and we realised that it wouldn't be easy trying to book at short notice. However this hotel came up in search result and we thought we'd go for this as we never have been to Lynmouth before. It turned out to be best thing we have done! Quiet and relaxing, the room with sea view was lovely and comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, the hotel's honesty bar was good and Richard & Jane were wonderful and they were very helpful to give advice (including a tick's bite!) - what more could we ask for??? We will most definitely return to this hotel the next time we come to Lynmouth!

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Shelley's and it definitely won't be the last. In a fantastic location with sea views. The rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast choice is excellent and nothing is too much trouble, Jane and Richard are a lovely couple and always have time for a natter. I would highly recommend a stay at Shelley's.

Shelley's is the best hotel we have stayed at. Nothing is too much trouble for the wonderful couple that run it and just to add to its appeal it is set in the spectacular Lynmouth. Shelley's don't have swimming pools or a gym but the area is a Mecca for walkers so keeping fit is not a problem.
Breakfast is freshly cooked to order and cooked perfectly. Toast, cereals, fruit, yogurts and other items are also on the menu so be prepared to come back plumper than you went.

Room Tip: Choose a conservatory or Juliet balcony room

Jane and Richard work hard in running this very pleasant and relaxing hotel / B&B, and everything is well maintained. Our room (the Bay Room) had magnificent views over the water, and good choices for breakfast -- you will not leave the table hungry. The bathroom in the Bay Room could have been a little larger, and as the partition between bedroom and ensuite bathroom was presumably part of the renovation undertaken by Jane and Richard c.12 years ago, then another 12/18 inches bathroom width would have helped enormously without compromising bedroom space. But this is a small point in the context of a thoroughly enjoyable 2-night stay in a relaxing environment. Very comfortable ground floor lounge with reasonable honesty bar prices. Would definitely stay again, and you will be hard pressed to find a better location.
