Stayed at hotel Harry from 10th-13th March, staff were very friendly especially Rachel and David who were very helpful throughout the weekend with suggestions of places to visit and where to go for dinner. A complimentary bottle of wine was very unexpected but an excellent touch to the weekend. The bar downstairs had a great atmosphere and the noise wasn't...

Beautiful old building with unbelievably good food in the pub downstairs. I ate the Green Goddess Salad twice in the two days we were there, it was awesome! Accessibility was a bit tricky with lots of luggage, as the parking is a short walk away and the elevator is very small and old school. The staff were super--helpful though and...

I stayed in a very small room that was so poorly lit that it was claustrophobic. It was very noisy and there is a decent size hole in the ceiling in the bathroom (photo attached). The entire bathroom floor was under water when I had a shower. Definitely not 4 stars as advertised!

Dear EmmaR166, Thank you for your feedback. We do proudly operate as boutique hotel meaning our rooms are all different in size. Whilst we do understand Hotel Harry is not for everyone, it does sadden me that you did not enjoy your experience here.

Not what i expected from the Choice Hotel chain. What a great addition and lets hope they move all their hotels in this direction :) Great bar and bar food in Harpoon Harrys down stairs. Love the weird decor especially the pig.
