I stayed at the Shellbrooke for just one night in February 2017. I would have liked it to have been longer, as the hotel is located in my absolute favourite town. This was, however, fundamentally a business trip, as I needed to find a hotel with strong Wi-Fi to take part in an international conference call with someone in the...

Arrived at The Shellbrooke on a cold day. Meet by Jacqui into a lovely warm reception area. Although our room was up 36 stairs ( I think) we wasn't disappointed. It was lovely decorated, warm and spotlessly clean. A good complementary tray was very much appreciated. After a good nights sleep we went to breakfast. Meet by Mark we had...

We visited the Shellbrooke again last week for the weekend as our daughter has moved into the area. We have booked multiple visits during the year. The rooms are always very clean, the hospitality tray well stocked, and the breakfast never disappoints. I am coeliac and my gluten free diet is always catered for with no problems! Looking forward to...

We chose The Shellbrooke largely blind but were impressed by favourable Tripadvisor reports. What a good choice! First of all, when we booked...

Thanks for your review. We have quite a lot of walkers stay with us during the year, and can always provide a cooked breakfast - or if you're leaving really early a packup - to fuel you for the day. We look forward to seeing you again.
