"Named after Percy Bysshe Shelley who spent his summer long honeymoon here with his 16 year old bride, Harriet, in 1812...    ...reopened after a two-year makeover and now provides a warm and comfortable base from which to explore the region" Daily Mail

"Highly Recommended~Percy Bysshe Shelley's honeymoon haunt...   ...bright rooms have big windows and good views" Fodor's Travel Guide

"In Shelley's footsteps - For me, the most beautiful sight in north Devon is of lovely Lynmouth at the bottom of a cliff, with Lynton perched directly above. Shelley's hotel where the poet brought his new wife in 1812, is a small luxury hotel, high on glamour and mod-cons but run in a friendly, relaxed style. The rooms all have some wonderful views over Lynmouth Bay and the river."
