My daughter and I stayed here while in Harrogate on business. This was our third year in the same guest house and we would not consider looking elsewhere, in fact we book months ahead to be sure to get "our room". The house is beautiful and tastefully decorated, the rooms spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast is fantastic, either the best bacon ever or Neil knows more about cooking bacon than I do. Great choice and lots of it, really sets you up for the day. Sue and Neil are lovely, from our first ever visit they were really friendly and welcoming and very helpful. Location wise the house is fantastic as it is only a few minutes walk away from the conference centre and lots of restaurants and shops. Cannot recommend Shelbourne House highly enough and looking forwards already to our next annual visit.

Stayed two nights at shelbourne house whilst attending a show at the exhibition centre. I can't recommend it enough, the best b & b I've ever stayed in. Comfiest beds, luxury surroundings and the best breakfast. Thank you sue for being the perfect host we'll see you again next year.

very nice, bit expensive for a B and B but that is Harrogate for you.
GREAT location. Room was ok, a bit small for the price. Breakfast was very good.
Hospitality and service was very good, owners were very kind and didn't rush out to check out. Also recommended a couple fo great places to eat. THANKS.

Room Tip: room on top floor was a bit small

Your reviews are very important to us, thank you for taking the time to post one. Our house a large Victorian semi, build at the turn of the last century. All the rooms are different sizes which we feel gives it more interest, not bog standard like in the larger chains. They are all en-suite, have large flat screen tv's , dressing tables / desks with ample power points. The design has been well thought out by Neil, being a design engineer with over 25yrs experience. We have guests who love to take a different room every time they visit because of the quirkiness.

We hope that you will vista us again in the future.

Kind Regards

Sue

We stayed at Shelbourne House, on the 12th August and although it was only for one night, we felt we had to write this review.
Neil and Sue accommodated our change of plans on the last minute, as due to unforeseen circumstances as we had to bring our stay forward by a few days.

From the moment that we arrived, we felt very welcome; Neil and Sue are so friendly they make you feel very relaxed. Neil spent some time with us, providing us with all the useful information that we could need out and about in Harrogate and also providing us with a map of town.

Shelbourne House itself is a credit to them and well worthy of the reviews and awards it has received and definitely worth its 4 stars. From the beautiful tended front garden to the lovely décor, spacious rooms and fab facilities, including a fantastic breakfast not only including cereals,yogurt,fresh fruit etc and a choice of cooked breakfast, all cooked with local produce, but with a wonderful friendly service from Sue too.

Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay any longer; hopefully we will be able to make a return visit soon.

Thank you Neil and Sue for your wonderful friendly hospitality and making us feel so welcome.

Thank you so much for taking time to give give us such a wonderful review. We try our upmost to treat everyone as individuals and make our guests feel welcome and comfortable. Neil does take pride keeping the garden as pretty as possible. It paid off, we won the best B&B garden award 2012-2013!. We hope that if you visit Harrogate in the future you will stay at Shelbourne House.
