Lovely place location is ideal, just a short walk from the harbour. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful! The breakfast room is very pretty, there is plenty of choic and there is a great variety of cooked dishes. All very well done. Our room was impeccable and quiet, magnificent sea views out across Lynmouth Bay, and the bathroom was very comfortable and clean. The owners are really nice and helpful. The hotel is decorated to a much higher standard that the price would suggest. The bed are… Read Full Review

We felt relaxed the moment we arrived, Jane & Richard ensured that we had all the local information that we needed to make the most of our stay. Throughout there is attention to detail with lovely furnishings beautifully decorated and immaculately clean, our room was every bit as lovely as the photos on the website suggest. The breakfasts are by far the nicest that we have ever had at any hotel, with an impressive choice to suit all tastes. The location of Shelley's is ideal, in the centre… Read Full Review

The hotel is spotlessly clean, the room was to a very high standard and well decorated and looked the same as the pictures found on the website. We have just got back from a 3 night stay, Shelley's is a warm and friendly hotel with everything you could wish for, we can't recommend it enough. All in all a very good hotel made even better by the friendly, helpful and informative hosts. Very very reasonable prices, perfect location central to everything,fabulous freshly cooked to order 5 star… Read Full Review

Shelley's Hotel is a very good place to stop for a short break.
Great hospitality, good food, fantastic situation, close to a large choice of local restaurants for evening meals and a very clean and comfortable room.
Slept like a log both nights, I am usually someone who does not sleep well the first night away from home... so this must be a first!
This hotel deserves all the good reviews it gets, the owners have done a fantastic job, it isn't pretentious just quality and classy.
It was so… Read Full Review

The area is riddled with stunning coastal walks and scenic footpaths, and there are breathtaking views at every turn in the road.
Overlooking the bay and harbour in Lynmouth, at the foot of the Glen Lyn Gorge, this hotel is ideally situated to take advantage of everything the area has to offer.
Shelleys has been refurbished to a very high standard, with comfortable beds, lots of hot water in the shower, and expensive soft furnishings, but the atmosphere is relaxed and informal.
The owners… Read Full Review

Best in Lynton & Lynmouth.
Shelley's is a wonderful small hotel, very comfortable and very smartly decorated with a touch of something special, a lovely looking hotel in a landmark location the heart of Lynmouth overlooking the bay.
The hotel rooms are delightful, comfortable kingsize beds, sea views and some have delightful private conservatories.
Breakfast is a real treat in itself, a wide choice all freshly cooked to order, no having to pre-order the night before.
The coastline is stunning… Read Full Review

We stayed at Shelley's in August for 3 nights as part of our 2 week touring holiday driving around the Devon and Cornwall, it was fabulous. Our hosts made us feel very welcome, were knowledgeable about the area, and gave us good advice on where to dine.
Shelley's has to be one of the best locations in Lynmouth with its superb sea views from the breakfast room and nearly all of the bedrooms, the view across Lynmouth Bay from our conservatory balcony room was really lovely.
Shelley's is… Read Full Review

We had three lovely days at Shelleys, a few years ago we stopped at Shelleys for a couple nights and always promised ourselves that we would return.
Shelley's is lovely with really great standards in a very informal way but are always on hand if you need any help.
Large, comfortable beds with good quality furnishings and a few really nice touches and attention to detail that gave a feeling of luxury and breakfast really is as good as previous reviews say, hearty with plenty of choice

We had a good journey home but we are missing Shelley's Hotel and Lynmouth already!
We had a wonderful mini-break, the hospitality is fantastic, the food was superb, the room and location was just what we were hoping for.
I really loved the huge supply of magazines, books and all the little finishing touches that make one feel so welcome and looked after.
Just the thing to recharge the batteries.
Thanks again for a lovely few days, we look forward to coming again soon!… Read Full Review

We stayed at the lovely Shelley's and enjoyed the experience very, very much.
This is an area overlooked by many, so we would very much like to encourage others to travel there and especially to stay at Shelley's.
We had a very nicely decorated and spacious room with splendid sea views, the breakfast is top notch too, however the real plus is that the care and attention shown by the proprietors, they make their guests feel welcome. A perfect place to relax and enjoy watching life go by… Read Full Review

We feel Lynmouth Shelley's Hotel is a hidden gem, we received a very warm welcome on our arrival, the relaxed atmosphere, excellent breakfast that sets you up for the day, the beautifully appointed rooms and stunning sea views across Lynmouth Bay are the perfect combination and, in our opinion offer good value for money unmatched by some of the larger more expensive hotels in the South West.
We travelled a long way to get to Shelley's but it was absolutely worth it, the fact that our journey… Read Full Review

My husband and I found Shelleys Hotel in Lynmouth Devon quite by chance on a trip to Exmoor three years ago, and since then we have returned several times to enjoy the different seasons.
This time we stayed only 3 nights, and wished it had been longer.
The hotel is extremely comfortable and the hosts very welcoming. Shelley's provides an ideal base for Exmoor, and there are excellent restaurants within walking distance, beautiful coastal walks, and places to visit nearby.
All in all Shelley's… Read Full Review

Our room was very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated to a high standard. Shelley's is well situated just a stones throw away from the shops, restaurants and harbour, yet it is quiet and peaceful.
I booked this hotel based upon reviews on this site and was not disappointed. We can confirm everything good that has already been said about Shelley's… Read Full Review

Shelley's hotel provides an ideal base for the area, excellent restaurants within walking distance, beautiful coastal walks, places to visit nearby. If you are coming to North Devon and Exmoor stay here. Shelley's is very comfortable, rooms well appointed, the bar cozy and the owners - Jane & Richard very welcoming. A perfect place to stay with a great breakfast every morning. We found many choices, coffee, tea, milk, juices, cereals, and toast as well as full English breakfast, kippers… Read Full Review

We chanced upon Shelley's a couple of years ago and loved it. The location is perfect, the hotel comfortable and clean, and Richard and Jane really nice people. We promised ourselves a return visit and so this year we went back. We were not disappointed. An excellent hotel with really great standards. Light, airy rooms with good quality furnishings. Large, comfortable beds and a few really nice touches and attention to detail that gave a feeling of luxury. The best rooms are the conservatory… Read Full Review
