We were greeted by the owner, Sue and given a warm welcome. The rooms were super comfortable with all you could wish for. A really comfortable double bed and a shower over the bath in the en suite. These are new owners and are in the process of redecorating all the rooms although I could not find fault in our... More

Stayed here for one night in a room at the back of the house, the room was not suitable for tall people as I hit my on the slopes ceiling. There was a lot on offer for breakfast. However, were drowned in butter and did not taste very well.

Nice old building, Friendly and clean, but small rooms with creaky floorboards (understandable for a old building). Most annoying was breakfast finishing at 9:30, even on a Sunday! Checkout was at 11, also on the Sunday.

The Shelleven Guest House was absolutely lovely. I had a small, cozy single bedroom. The hosts are delightul, the breakfast is delicious, and it was great value. I loved the short walk down a nearby lane straight to the sea. I definitely recommend the Shelleven Guest House and look forward to staying again on my next visit to Bangor.

From Sue's welcome to check out 3 days later the warmth and welcome of n Shelleven was immaculate. Three hungry kids went out every morning ready for busy days on tummies full of fab brekky - surprised there was any pancake batter left by Sunday after double helpings for our eldest each day! Boisterous kids made very welcome which is... More
