Have just returned from a 3 night break at Lynmouth .We stayed at Shelly's Hotel.Our room was huge and spotlessly clean with views overlooking the sea . Breakfasts were fresh and tasty . The hosts were very welcoming and always smiling . We will definately return to this beautiful part of the country and without hesitation will stay at Shelly's.

The hotel is in a lovely location and our conservatory balcony room had good views. We were politely received by the friendly owners who showed us to our room. The room was spotlessly clean, large, and very comfortable with a good sized bathroom and benefitted from free Wi-Fi. Lots of photos and images of Shelley were evident in the room.... More

Review: 'We have just returned from a 4 night stay. The hotel was lovely, we stayed in a conservatory balcony room which was very clean and comfortable with the added bonus of having the extra seating area in the conservatory, where we could sit and watch the world go by. The breakfast was very tasty and filling with a good... More

Shelley's is in an ideal position, wonderful views, and fabulous breakfasts, the big plate of delicious kippers was particularly great! We really enjoyed our light and comfortable room. Also the sitting room area with fireplaces and bookshelves is a lovely space in which to relax.

3 years ago we last stayed at Shelley's, doesn't time fly; after returning for our 3rd visit we really wish we had returned sooner. We forgot just how stunning the sea views were; sitting in our conservatory with the doors open on to the balcony watching the sunset was so, so relaxing, we could have stayed forever.....

Another lovely short break at Shellys. Fabulous room, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and view to meet all expectations. Fabulous hosts, excellent breakfast. Why stay anywhere else! We love it and will be back again and again...

Two nights is not long enough to stay in this wonderful location, must stay longer next time, all the reviews I have read are absolutely true, the hosts Richard and Jane could certainly not do any better, we look forward to the next time.

Shelley's was a perfect place for us to celebrate completing the Two Moors' Way. Our room was spotless, bright and airy with a great balcony with views of the harbour. Jane and Richard were perfect hosts, ensuring that our poor old walking boots were lovely and dry by the time we left! Breakfast was great and the lounge and bar... More

We stayed at Shelley's for two nights in August this year. We would easily recommend it and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room we had was excellent, as was the breakfast. Shelley's has fantastic sea views and a perfect location to enjoy Exmoor, the seaside, and the villages along the Somerset and Devon coast. Jane and Richard are very warm... More
