“Excellent ”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Very authentic hotel with excellent hosts who really took trouble with us - booking restaurants & tending to our needs. The honesty bar was an excellent idea & worked beautifully. Rooms comfortable & an excellent breakfast is always available with lots of variety - hope to return soon.

Stayed July 2014

We recently spent a weekend at Shelley's and were most impressed. We had a lovely warm greeting from Richard, who was so pleasant and friendly, as was Jane. Our room was really comfortable and every thing was spotlessly clean. The public rooms were comfortable and quiet. Richard was very knowledgeable about the area. The breakfasts were fantastic! Shame they don't do evening meals! Nothing was too much trouble for Richard and Jane and our stay was most enjoyble. I would certainly recommend Shelley's to everyone.

We have stayed at Shelleys on a number of occasions over the last 10 years and always had the same wonderful experience. The rooms are excellent, comfortable, well furnished and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts are generous and delicious. Richard and Jane are wonderful hosts and provide fantastic service at all times. Shelleys has a good location close to the harbour and with great seaviews. We have no hesitation recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room if possible

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.
