Brilliant location, amazing views - I thought I was in Switzerland, not Devon! Everything immaculate and all that was provided was generous and delicious. We were lucky enough to have a room with a balcony and a beautiful four poster bed...lovely! Thank you!

Congratulations to Shelleys on receiving the 2014 TripAdvisor award that we recently read about in the Times newspaper. We stayed for 3 nights in September last year, Jane & Richard run Shelley's in a relaxed and informal style and their award is well-deserved, we are looking forward to returning again this Autumn.

Returning guests, we came on after having a couple of nights in the Peak District. As before the hotel was comfortable and clean, and Jane & Richard excellent hosts with a friendly informal style. Our room was very clean and beautifully decorated to a high standard. The location is perfect, quiet and peaceful, yet Shelley’s is a stones throw away... More

Stayed at Shelly's a couple of times now. Fantastic location, great breakfast, excellent accommodation, brilliant owners. Got soaking wet one day while out walking and when we returned to Shelly's the staff even took our wet clothes to dry off. Will definitely be going back.

Another very pleasant & relaxing stay at Shelley’s Hotel, Lynmouth. - (7 nights). Apart from one exception this has been our eleventh consecutive year, which we have enjoyed the hospitality of Richard & Jane. They are both very welcoming, with nothing too much trouble, and if you require something to make your holiday even more special, then just ask. i.e.... More
