My first trip to North Devon, Lynmouth is an excellent base, Shelley's was perfect for our needs although not quite up to what I might expect. Nice clean rooms, Jane and RIchard were really friendly and clearly work very hard for the season that they are open. Breakfasts were great. But I do have to concur with some other reviews... More

We were on a two week junket around London, Hampshire, Devin and Cornwall, and we stayed at Shelleys for two nights. Both the hotel and the town of Lynmouth were a delight. We loved the setting, the room was fab with a conservatory and balcony that opened onto the gorge. The owners are very helpful, and seemed to genuinely care... More

I always feel a good test of my experience of an hotel is to answer the question "Would I stay there again?". Sadly in the case of Shelley's the answer is an emphatic "NO". First of all it claims to be an hotel. I think that is somewhat misleading. They do not provide meals (apart from breakfast) or accommodate children... More

We stayed at Shelley's for 2 nights in the Bay Room. Overall, our stay was fine but we were left feeling a little disappointed having read the reviews on Tripadvisor. The hotel was pleasant and clean and the owners were friendly. However, we did not experience the 'luxury' and 5 star experience that others have reported in their reviews. The... More

Warm, comfortable, calm, in the village centre, everything worked, no traffic noise, great breakfast, within easy reach of walking trails. Would have no hesitation to stay there if visiting Lynmouth again.

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend for my wife's birthday. The room was spacious and comfortable and we had a view of the sea (and the car park). one downside was paying extra for car parking on arrival which meant leaving the car in a public car park for the weekend. The breakfast was fantastic with... More

Faultless service, rooms, breakfast (kedgeree even) and location. Just perfect. I wonder why I am required to pad this out to 200 characters. I wonder why I am required to pad this out to 200 characte
