Stayed here for the second time with two young children on a Fri and Sat night, new owners have hit the ground running. Sue and Philip were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast is a big winner with plenty of fresh food and the Uster Fry for the hungry (remember no beans in this one!). Very clean and... More

We spent the night here as we were embarking on a 3 week car trip through Ireland and Scotland. We were exhausted from 24 hours of travel and a two hour left-hand drive up from Dublin. We left the next morning well-rested, well-fed and ready for our adventure! Thank you!

A very well managed guest house and a pleasant experience from arriving until leaving. We were informed by the present owners that they had not long taken over the guest house, however they were very welcoming, sociable and pleasant and so their relative newness wasn't a problem whatsoever. The room was clean and spacious, if perhaps maybe in need of... More

Wonderful welcome from Sue, nothing was too much trouble. I stayed with my friend who needed downstairs access. Our room was perfect with a large bathroom and outside patio. We even got a cup of tea from Sues hubby as we waited for my daughter to collect us! Lovely breakfast apparently potato bread is called "slim" according to the hubby... More

Shelleven Guest House has a lovely feel about it as soon as you walk through the door. The owners are really welcoming and bent over backwards to accommodate our dietary needs. The room was on the top floor and was clean, well appointed and had a super king bed which could also be twinned if necessary. The en suite bathroom... More

We made our reservation at Shelleven House back in January 2016. When we arrived in June it had been sold to new owners who have been there right at nine weeks. Paul greeted us at the door and was very friendly and helpful. Parking is off street and it is just a short walk into town. Our room was spacious... More
