More in keeping with a boutique hotel than a guest house! Beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. Each room having it's own characteristics and tasteful decor. Will definitely look no further for a place to stay for my next visit to Harrogate. Sue and Neil are very welcoming and willing to accommodate your specific needs for your stay. I stayed with...

I stayed here 3 or 4 nights a week for six months while I was working in Harrogate and highly recommend Shelbourne House for any kind of stay. It is really a 5 star small boutique hotel with tastefully decorated rooms, fantastic Yorkshire breakfasts prepared using locally sourced produce as well as excellent free WiFi fast enough to make Skype...

Ideal location for us after long days at the showground. We normally hire a cottage but this was so good we have booked for next year already. Everything is lovely, especially relaxing in front of the log fire with a Baileys on a cold winter's evening.

Myself and 10 friends stayed at the Shelbourne in December 2012 from Friday to Sunday to celebrate a 40th Birthday! This beautiful boutique B&B (which is far superior to most hotels I have stayed in) was excellent. The rooms are tastefully decorated throughout and each one has its own individual style, spotlessly clean and super comfy. The lounge area was... More
