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.

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.

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!
