Had a really lovely couple of nights at Shelleys at the beginning of May. Huge rooms with very comfortable beds and sea view. Breakfast was just right. Wonderful hosts. Many thanks. Lynmouth is a typical Devon seaside town. River and coastal walks are great too. Les & Shelley

Jane & Richard couldn't do enough for us, from the moment we walked through the door, to the time we were going home, what an enjoyable experience! Shelley's was very comfortable, spotlessly clean, with good quality furnishings. Location was perfect, being a couple of minutes level walk to the small harbour and seafront. The reviews for breakfasts are well deserved...

The seaviews were fantastic over Lynmouth Bay, the room was really lovely. We stayed here recently in a conservatory room with a balcony, it was warm for the time of year and very sunny. The room itself was large and nicely furnished, the bed was a kingsize double and incredibly comfortable. The hotel is lovely and delightfully decorated in keeping...

We've been taking short breaks on Exmoor for many years now but never have we stayed in such a lovely place as Shelley's in Lynmouth. Our bedroom was spotlessly clean, spacious, comfortable with sea views to die for.

Late booking - a 3 night stay in October at Shelley's booked direct from their website. Our room was spotlessly clean, fresh and bright with beautiful sea views. Ideal location central to everything. Splendid breakfasts. Jane & Richard are welcoming hosts. More than we could have hoped we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Absolutely delightful and good value.
