I have been using tripadvisor for many years as a reliable source of booking holidays, hotels and restaurants. I have found the reviews to be quite accurate and useful but have only now decided to be a reviewer myself. This is based upon my own perception of Shelley's at Lynmouth. I am somewhat confused at the continual large number of...

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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...
