First time my friend and I had stayed at the Shelbourne, and I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay. Beautifully decorated, warm and cosy, just what you need in December. The bedroom we stayed in is gorgeous, spacious, clean and warm, comfortable beds with fresh clean bedding and lovely furniture. Breakfast was freshly cooked, hot and... More

Thank you very much for your lovely review. It is always great to see you, especially because it is usually over your birthday! let us know and there will be a bottle of presecco waiting. Harrogate is a great place to visit, small enough to walk round easily, but large enough to accommodate a large and fabulous selection of restaurants... More

We stayed three nights here and really enjoyed it. Sue was a wonderful hostess, going out of her way to help in every detail, even the dastardly Harrogate parking system. The room was large, well appointed and comfortable and the breakfast superb. The location could not be better. We shall certainly return here when we visit Harrogate again.

Thank you for your lovely compliments. Once your car is parked up with free 24 hr parking permits, it may be left for the full duration of your stay, Harrogate town centre is within walking distance. Enjoy a stress free break in our fabulous restaurants and bars. Or a trip to the Theatre. The Victorian Turkish Baths is worth a... More

We booked this BnB based on reviews on here, and were not disappointed! It is beautifully decorated, with a lovely lounge and dining room - we were in room 7 which was on the top floor, not the biggest of rooms but still perfect for us. The bed was super comfy, we had everything we needed and the en suite... More

Lovely review, thank you. We are a large Victorian semi, all our rooms are different in size, so that adds to the quirkiness! not your average boring chain!! Our breakfast are always freshly cooked to order, using the finest local ingredients. Hope to see you again soon :) More

If you want a comfortable but modern room, with a cracking breakfast, plus a very friendly owner Shelbourne House is for you. Sue will try and meet all requirements as well as offering a great choice of foods for breakfast. Oh yes, and she's always smiling!

From the moment I arrived I was made to feel welcome. The rooms were lovely spacious and airy, clean and well appointed. Nice to have bottled water in the rooms along with plentiful tea and coffee.

This is a lovely place to spend a few nights in Harrogate, and very close to the town centre. Sue and Neil are always very pleasant and obliging and provide a homely atmosphere with a very comfy bedroom and great breakfasts. We are very happy to recommend.
