A great place to stay and a wonderful friendly welcome from Sue, the owner. We hVe stayed here on a number of occasions in the past and would not think of staying anywhere else in Harrogate. Rooms comfortable and clean, breakfast superb and Sue's recommendations for evening meals out were excellent. Have already booked again to stay here next year!!

We had a lovely stay, Shelbourne house is a fabulous victorian building decorated to a very high standard, and situated in the heart of Harrogate. Sue the owner is extremely welcoming and helpful, she starts you off in the morning with the most amazing breakfast made from the produce of local Yorkshire farms.

Immediate reaction-how very daring- shocking pink and silver would not be my choice to promote a sense of relaxation and calm in a bedroom! However, very comfy bed, spotlessly clean, lovely friendly owner and great living room area for guests. Only downside was iffy pluming- taps in sink not properly fixed to unit and shower took ages to reach the... More

Had excellent 3 night stay. Clean and comfortable bed. Decent shower. Great breakfast. Genuinely great host. She went above and beyond her duty. I had a minor injury that required treatment and She booked me in to see a GP at local surgery. How kind was that. Short walk into town. Definitely will be back and highly recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to give me a review. Harrogate is a fabulous town, and the added bonus of the beautiful weather means you saw it at its best! the award winning park is magnificent at the moment, even though I have to admit it is special every season. See you soon :) More

We booked double rooms for a weekend stay for 2 couples. This wasn't the first time we'd stayed and after last time were looking forward to it. It's all good stuff, so let's skip the praise and adulation and give you some useful info for your stay. You're situated across the road from the conference halls and 5 minutes walk... More

I have stayed in guest houses from Tuscany to Cornwall, from Anglesey to Limerick... this one tops them all. Every single one. Sue is an absolute delight and can't do enough to make your stay extra special. The breakfast is to die for, it is located five minutes from the gorgeous town centre and my room was stylish, spacious and... More
