Stayed for bank holiday weekend and really enjoyed our stay. Room lovely and clean and decorated very modern. Loved the boutique style decor, especially the bathroom. Sue was very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast lovely and cooked fresh. Only a 3 minute walk into harrogate so positioned really well. Would definitely come back.

Great review thank you. We are situated in the beautiful Spa Town, so after enjoying the shops, restaurants and bars, there isn't the problem of thinking about taxi's or a trek to Shelbourne, a short stroll and you are back, to settle down in the lounge with a complementary drink, or sink into your fresh, comfy bed. We love our... More

This is the second time we have stayed here. It is warm, friendly and beyond comfortable. The food is delicious. Sue, the owner, is delightful and really happy to advise on places to visit and eat. We enjoyed it so much, we bought a night to give as a gift to my parents.

The last time i stayed in Harrogate I stayed at a very big plush hotel and I treated myself to a suite. It was very nice and very expensive. No complaints at all I just couldn't afford to do that again and the experience was 'ok'. This time my girlfriend booked us into Shelbourne House and told me it was... More

Very clean and tastefully furnished accommodation. Sue makes you feel very at home and the breakfast is great! Location is superb and quiet, yet with all the main attractions of Harrogate only minutes away. Will definitely return - 10/10
