We were looking to grab a late availability last minute short break before the weather turned and winter sets in. We'd stayed at Shelley's for the first time earler this year; we'd had such a good time, we thought why not return and see Exmoor in it's Autumn colours. Shelley's never disappoints, Jane & Richard are great hosts, breakfasts are... More

What a find, Shelley's is a lovely small bed & breakfast hotel right in the centre of the harbour village of Lynmouth, and makes an ideal base from which to explore Lynmouth & Lynmouth and Exmoor National Park. Jane & Richard are friendly, welcoming and informative proprietors, nothing is too much trouble with always a minute to chat with you,... More

We stayed at the beginning of October, Jane & Richard are excellent hosts. Shelley's is in an ideal location near the harbour, restaurants and seafront. Fantastic breakfasts, welcoming hosts, bright, light spotlessly clean sea view bedroom, what more could you ask for. As I said a really great place for a short break away from it all. Thoroughly recommended

We enjoyed a 4 night late September Autumn break which was made even better with the glorious Indian Summer we enjoyed during our stay at Shelley's in Lynmouth. Shelley's is right in the heart of the village and has a fantastic aspect with spectacular sea views looking out across Lynmouth Bay; hosts Jane & Richard have created a warm, friendly... More

This was our first stay in Lynmouth and we chose Shelleys based upon other peoples reviews. We really enjoyed it! The hotel occupies a great position with lovely views and we were made to feel very welcome from the moment that we arrived. We stayed in a Balcony Room which was extremely comfortable and the Lounge was a lovely spot... More

Really can't fault Shelley's - the hosts Richard and Jane are hugely welcoming and go out of their way to be helpful. The room was gorgeous with views of the bay and info on the history of the hotel, breakfast was delicious (try the kedgeree), and the location was perfect. Hope to stay there again soon!

Nothing much to add to the reviews already on here. Shelly's is an excellent base for touring the area. Richard and Jane are great hosts. The hotel is spotless and we would agree with the others that the conservatory rooms are well worth it. Breakfasts are fabulous and certainly set one up well for the day . Lynmouth is a... More

We have been visiting Shelley's for several years. As ever, the welcome by Richard and Jane is wonderful - you could not have better hosts. The rooms are very comfortable, mostly with great views of Lynmouth and the sea and we look forward everyday to the excellent breakfasts served looking over the sea. The location is superb and there is... More

We arrived late, at 10.15pm , and were to tired to eat. However the thought of relaxing in the non -staffed "honesty bar" appealed and it was after 01.00am when we retired having consumed 2 lovely tasting bottles of Red Wine that were very reasonably charged at about £13 per bottle. Room No 11 was lovely with very comfortable bed... More

Just returned from another great relaxing break at Shelley's and as usual Richard and Jane were excellent host who always makes everyone very welcome. This great little hotel is in a beautiful location and highly recommend upgrading to the conservatory bedroom room which are very comfortable and beautifully decorated with beautiful sea views. If you enjoy a good choice of... More
