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. In my opinion one of the best features was the lounge area where we could relax and catch up. Lovely to have a freshly... More

It is in a great spot just over the road from the exhibition centre within 5mins walk to the centre of Harrogate. The owner couldn't... More

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.

Nothing is too much trouble for Sue, who is definately a people person!

Shelbourne House is an awesome B&B which I would highly recommend to anyone and which will be my absolute first choice on future trips to Harrogate. The single rooms aren't huge, but are very comfortable with all that's required for an excellent stay.
