We stayed for two nights at Shelleven Guest House. It is nicely located in a quiet area, but not too far to walk to the town centre and amenities. Our room was warm and comfortable with a large and efficient bathroom. We were on the ground floor with access to a small patio and outside chairs. The sun actually came...

The owners couldn't be more friendly and relaxed and the rooms were spotlessly clean , stylish with extra added touches , which made our stay a lovely...

A group of us stayed at Shelleven Guest House over the Easter period for 3 nights. Having never stayed in a guest house I didn't know what to expect but everything was great. The rooms were modern (but cosy), clean and had everything you needed with a few little touches, the breakfast was lovely and owners were welcoming and helpful....

We were delighted to find this Guest House in Bangor. Located close to the Marina and Pickie park. Excellent breakfast, wheelchair accessible bathroom and lounge. Bed a trifle soft but ok for a few days!

The door opened before we rang the bell and we were welcomed by a very pleasant gentleman who made us very welcome.We had a room on the top floor over looking the town and the sea, the room was well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and well cooked and served by lovely staff and a very shy young girl....

This B&B is perfectly situated in a location just a block away from the shoreline. Can't over emphasize what an ideal restful and serene place to stay. Paul was a wonderful host, with good recommendations for local pubs and eateries. The room was beautifully appointed and recently renovated! Hope to return one day.

Stayed at Shellevan while visiting a friend who lives locally. The guest house is in a great location near to Bangor Harbour which is lovely to walk around and it is also close to nice restaurants and bars. The owner who greeted us was lovely and friendly and we were upgraded to a sea view room as the guest house...
