The Shelleys is a very old, elegant hotel, conveniently situated near the top of cobbled Keere Street, yet quiet and so relaxing. There is a genuinely warm welcome from the moment you enter, nothing is too much trouble. I’ve visited for both business and leisure (including a really lovely wedding) and am always impressed by the high level of comfort and friendly service. Rooms are luxuriously furnished, appropriate to the period, with homely touches, and the beds have lovely deep mattresses. The food, served in the pretty dining room overlooking the garden, is delicious. There are plenty of cosy chairs scattered about where you can relax with a book and pot of tea. The building itself is very old and quirky, with heaps of historic interest. It really is a very special hotel, oozing class and friendliness, & I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
