What a great experience. Stayed B&B and it's got to be the best breakfast in Yorkshire. The room was neat large clean and very comfortable. Would certainly book again. The park is opposite and good for a walk in all weathers the pump room just down the road and all the great places of Harrogate in walking distance. The hotel... More

Quiet, clean, comfortable and friendly hotel in a great location. Valley Gardens across the road. Shops and The Stray only a 5 to 10 minute walk away. Free parking permit allowed us to leave the car on the street outside the hotel. Excellent breakfast. Wonderful break in a perfect hotel.

Looks recently refurbished. We had 2 rooms, a double & a single. The single had a double bed and both rooms were bigger, with more toiletries/coffee etc. than a lot we've stayed in. Great hosts and beautifully clean and comfortable. Parking can be confusing with different restrictions depending which side of road you park, several cars had tickets. Lots of... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was very good and the room clean. Central location is a bonus not far to some lovely restaurants and shopping center. Would definaly return.

Four of us stayed after a trip to York Races, been several times and never been disappointed. Owner and staff very efficient and friendly. Breakfast first class. Excellent location for Town Centre and overlooks The Valley Park, which is a "must do" for visitors. Booked again for next year and booked an extra night !!!

My girlfriend and I stayed the night after attending her mother's concert in the nearby HIC. We have a very pleasant stay. Our room was cosy with a very nice bathroom. Breakfast was very nice too. And all the staff, particularly Brenda, were lovely. And the location, right by the park and a short walk to town, cannot be beaten.... More

The Cavendish is a traditional B&B but I have stayed in hotels which weren't as nice. Breakfast was very good and the rooms lovely and clean. Central to Harrogate so minutes walk to all bars, attractions and restaurants. Bonus is being situated across the road from the beautiful Valley Gardens, parking right outside the door. Would definitely stay here again.

Again I found myself needing a room in the north and after a search with Booking.com I found The Cavendish in Harrogate. I managed to find it easily and I found parking in the street outside. Upon entering I found myself is in a spotlessly clean B&B which was tastefully decorated with style. I was shown my room which was... More

The location is perfect! You are less than 5 mins away from the centre of Harrogate! There was parking at the front of the b&b and you are given a permit on arrival. The room was small but clean and well maintained. The bed was incredibly comfy! A great nights stay and I will come back next time I'm going... More

We have had a lovely weekend at the Cavendish which is in a great location just a short walk into town. Very friendly staff comfortable room and very clean. Bathroom very small but does the job. We had the full English breakfast which uses local ingredients and so tasty. If we visit Harrogate again we would stay here.
