Shelbourne House
Ranked #22 of 83 Harrogate B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 1, 2013

I stayed with my wife just a for a night. The 'house' itself is lovely - very well decorated and each room has it's own character. Our room was at the top of the house and while it wasn't huge, it was comfy and had everything we needed. Sue is an excellent host - she said before we arrived that even if the room wasn't ready, she would provide an on-street parking pass so we didn't have to pay any parking charges. While there wasn't any off road parking, I found the fact Sue provided parking permits better as some of the other B&B's have limited parking so if you miss out you either have to pay or park a good distance away. Shelbourne is perfectly located just 5 mins from the centre of Harrogate and very easy to get to - from the A1 follow the main road into Harrogate and turn left onto the top of Kings Road. Shelbourne is towards the bottom almost opposite the conference centre.
Sue herself couldn't have been anymore welcoming, making sure we knew where everything was and even providing free drinks in the sitting room The breakfasts as has already been mentioned was fantastic.
Overall, 10/10 and I will not consider anywhere else on our next night in Harrogate.

We spent 3 nights there whilst visiting the Harrogate Flower Show, Our host was welcoming and ready to ensure we had all that we needed. Parking was available. The house was 5 minutes from the centre of town and almost.opposite the Conference Centre. The room was comfortable. Breakfast was a feast. Options included fresh fruit and a variety of cooked breakfasts. These were freshly cooked to order. It was excellent value for money and I would certainly stay there again!

Room Tip: Back of the house was probably quieter.

Great place to stay. 2 minutes walk to the conference centre. Parking available. Very homely. Sue cooks a great breakfast. Well decorated and spotlessly clean. Would definitely recommend for business or pleasure

Me and my friend actually won our stay at Shelbourme House through a charity event which the Shelbourne house support. It was a wonderful stay, excellant decor throughout the house and was made to feel more than welcome. It had a homely atmosphere and only a 5-10 min walk into the centre (even in heels). My favourite was the rug in the lounge-amazing!
Highly recommended and would love to stay again the next time im in Harrogate!

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review, it is very much appreciated. We get lots of comments on our decor and the rug does stand out, and gets lots of great remarks, it was actually Neil's choice, he has a great eye for quirky and unusual design. We love it when our guests actually comment and enjoy the house as much as us.

We hope that if you ever decide to visit Harrogate in the future you will stay at Shelbourne House again.

Stayed 9th-11th April. Had a lovely room. The owner made us feel so welcome and even got us fresh milk instead of little cartons for our tea. The breakfasts were huge, delicious and cooked as you wanted them. I cannot fault Shelbourne House at all. I would return and would have loved to stay longer.

We have just enjoyed a 2 night stay in this amazing B&B. On our arrival day we were able to check in to our room as soon as we arrived at 12 o'clock. We stayed in Room 3 - total luxury, boutique decor and the fabulous slipper bath in the en suite. My husband could even watch the TV from the bath! When booking, Neil had already recommended plenty of restaurants so choosing where to go of an evening was easy. Sue was one of the friendliest hosts and couldn't do enough for us each morning at breakfast. The cooked breakfast was enough to keep us going for most of the day - my husband said that the black pudding ranked in his all time top 3 (a ranking system he takes very seriously!) The quality of the cooking was even better. The guest lounge is welcoming and the complimentary drinks a lovely touch. Staying here feels like staying with friends as you are made to feel so welcome and it is very easy to relax. Should I return to Harrogate, I won't be staying anywhere else. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Room 3 has the slipper bath and is a gorgeous room!

Staying at Shelbourne house once again was delightful. Sue continued to give excellent service. It is a great place to stay if you have a program at the convention Centre. The town Centre is just a short walk away. Hurray for Shelbourne house.
