Well it was overall not too bad we arrived in the carpark. We left the cases in the car and went to check in. This was about 11am we were told by guy on the reception that we couldn't check in until 2pm which for me is nonsense as half the day has gone. We tottled off into harrogate until... More

We took a short break with friends in Harrogate. The price including breakfast and dinner was very good value. The hotel has character and is well maintained. The room was a good size and noise levels low during our two night stay. Staff were generally pleasant and helpful. There is sufficient car parking space. The earliest we could get a... More

This is a lovely hotel in a good position but the rooms are disappointing. We had a standard room,which was ok but the bathroom was very small,although nice to have a bath ,not just a shower,but hardly any room to put toiletries. The room was very hot and windows didn't open. Bed was small but comfortable and room was clean.... More

I booked the Afternoon Tea for a Sunday afternoon. Staff were friendly, we had arrived early but this was not an issue. Parking permit was provided so there was no issue with parking. There was a wedding on the day, so there were folk in and out of the room wearing their finery(!), well on some folk anyway. The Afternoon... More

A beautiful hotel with attentive staff. The hotel is situated within a five minute walk of the town centre, so is an ideal base for all the attractions and activities on offer.

I stayed here whilst in town on a training course and it was booked by the business. Sorry to say I will not be coming back, had the worst two nights sleep ever due to what can only be described as a nest of pigeons above my window. Asked the reception for a room change to which they replied, it's... More

The Wedding reception was good, but the actual accommodation and breakfast were a little disappointing after what we paid on the special deal... We booked early but were given rather a small room on the 3rd floor at the back of the hotel with view of buildings.. the bedroom window wouldn't open. I felt the room was rather small.It had...

Stayed here for one night recently. Our double room on the first floor was small and the bathroom very narrow with a tiny basin. The room definitely needed some TLC and the furniture updating. The radiator in the bedroom didn't appear to work. We were glad we only stayed one night. The dinner, again was disappointing, my partner had to... More

Booked afternoon tea with a Virgin gift voucher that was a Christmas Present. On arrival, the greeting in the lounge was non existent. After changing our seat due to the noise and cold draught we were left with a table cloth that had hairs on and a smear of jam from previous guests. The tea was provided and we had... More
