We have recently returned from a 1 night stay at Shelbourne House and have nothing but great things to say about this beautiful B & B. Sue was a fantastic host and nothing was too much trouble. This is far more Boutique than B & B! Our room (no 3) was spotless as was the rest of the hotel. The...

Everything was really great quality, from making the booking, checking in, free car-parking and wi-fi access, good quality furnishings and fittings, and excellent quality breakfast cooked to order using locally sourced ingredients - and it is very well situated for either work or leisure - the Conference Centre is 5 minutes walk away - I would much rather stay here...

We stayed in Shelbourne whilst attending a conference in Harrogate. We arrived very early for check in but our room was ready which was great. We stayed in the room with the slipper bath. The room was decorated really nicely and the slipper bath was lush! The room was clean and bed was very comfortable. Sue was very friendly but...

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.

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!
