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

Fabulous B & B, Fabulous hostess, Fabulous location - stayed this weekend with friends and had a great time - Sue made us extremely welcome and the rooms are so tastefully decorated and comfortable - the breakfast was second to non I've had in any class of hotel and it will certainly not be my last visit to Shelbourne House

Great review.. Thank you for your kind words, we have worked hard decorating the rooms so they are comfortable and interesting. Harrogate it perfect for a girly get together, with many of the bars having live music over the weekend. Activities in the nearby Yorkshire Dales are plentiful, if you don't want to drink and eat all day! More

The room we stayed in was absolutely beautiful and so cosy, bed was so comfortable and the rooms are clearly well... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Shelbourne House. I am so pleased you enjoyed our beautiful Town with its array of fabulous bars and restaurants. The lounge and dining room are especially romantic in the winter with the open fires. Hope to see you again to enjoy room 3. Maybe for your birthday treat? More

Excellent B&B, great location, beautiful rooms, extremely friendly & helpful. Finished off with a superb breakfast. This is the place to stay with friends or as a couple. They also have family rooms. In fact they cater for everyone. Will be returning with my husband.

Stayed for bank holiday weekend and really enjoyed our stay. Room lovely and clean and decorated very modern. Loved the boutique style decor, especially the bathroom. Sue was very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast lovely and cooked fresh. Only a 3 minute walk into harrogate so positioned really well. Would definitely come back.

Great review thank you. We are situated in the beautiful Spa Town, so after enjoying the shops, restaurants and bars, there isn't the problem of thinking about taxi's or a trek to Shelbourne, a short stroll and you are back, to settle down in the lounge with a complementary drink, or sink into your fresh, comfy bed. We love our... More

This is the second time we have stayed here. It is warm, friendly and beyond comfortable. The food is delicious. Sue, the owner, is delightful and really happy to advise on places to visit and eat. We enjoyed it so much, we bought a night to give as a gift to my parents.

Return visits say it all! thank you. Our aim is to make our guests feel warm and comfortable with a good hearty Yorkshire breakfast to set them up for the day! We look forward to meeting your parents, and spoiling them. Great idea to buy them a nights stay for their anniversary. Look forward to seeing again soon. More
