My wife and I stayed at the Shelleven B&B while visiting Belfast. The Shelleven is beautiful, with quality furniture and many antiques. Our 2nd floor room had a view of the ocean. Parking was on the property, right in front. Town and restaurants were on the harbor, a short walk away. Breakfast of crepes with lemon, castor sugar, and golden... More

I booked Shelleven house recently on behalf of a group of friends from my local car club who were traveling as part of a club weekend away. I am a originally from Bangor and had talked the group into staying here as opposed to our usual stay in Belfast - I thought it good to support my local small town... More

Thank you so much to Mary and Phillip, such a relaxing stay in Bangor. Comfortable, fresh and clean room, great choice for breakfast. Fabulous peaceful location yet just a short hop from the marina. No hesitation in recommending The Shelleven!

My Wife and I stayed for a period of three days whilst visiting family. Location is very convenient just a short distance by foot to the coast line and Marina. Set in a tranquil location for a peaceful and undisturbed nights sleep. Owners and staff very amenable without being overpowering. The guest house is very clean and tidy, yet still... More

The owners, Mary and Philip, were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great, especially an omelet that was cooked to perfection. The room was modern, bright and spotless. My thanks for an excellent stay.

My son and I just spent a week at this guest house in Bangor. The owners Mary and Philip were very friendly and accomodating. The room was very clean and large. Breakfast was delicious and there was a good variety. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return one day.

A perfectly clean, adequate guest house that serves a decent breakfast. Completely spoiled, however, by the Basil Fawlty manner and attitude of the owner on arrival. We booked online two rooms for two nights and arrived just before the check in time to a unfriendly, cold welcome. Owner only had record of one night and told us to come back... More

Charming guest house and attic room had a marvellous view of the bay. Within easy reach of the town centre. Hosts are very charming and made us feel very welcome. The hearty breakfast stood us in good stead. Thank you to Mary, Philip and staff.
