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.

We appreciate you taking the time to write us a review.

Second time we have stayed here and we can't wait to go back for our 3rd visit! Sue went above and beyond as usual - even running out to the shop on a busy breakfast shift to get baked beans for hungry guests! Always so thoughtful to her guests and even cooking Eggs Benedict which is not a regular option...
