Sue and Paul are lovely. I was greeted by Sue and made to feel very welcome.

As part of a party of 9, we stayed at Shelleven for 2 nights last weekend. We received a lovely warm welcome from the hosts Sue and Paul. The room was large, very clean and comfortable, with the extra touches of robes, slippers and cotton wool balls. Breakfast was amazing, I tried to work my way through the extensive menu,...

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.
