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.

The bed was super comfy, we had everything we needed and the en suite... 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. 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

Myself and a colleague stayed here for a trade show for 3 nights at the end of May. Everywhere I phone in Harrogate was fully booked and luckily another hotel I phoned recommended Shelbourne House. 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.
