There are many B&Bs available in Harrogate and like everywhere else, they vary in service, accomodation etc from one extreme to the other.
Welford B&B is 4* for a reason. The welcome on arrival is warm, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the price is perfectly reasonable. As for the breakfast, well I haven't had much better is 5* hotels. As you would expect, there was the usual cereal, fruit juice etc ... What was different was firstly that the fresh fruit was genuinely fresh, beautiful strawberries, melon, huge blackberries & blueberries. What is also different is the cooked breakfast. No hot plates with overcooked warm greasy bacon, chewy fried eggs ... These were cooked as they were ordered, waiting a few extra minutes was well worth it. If you like scrambled eggs, yowza .. it is awesome !
I have to offer a balanced review, so I would say that the shower was a little tame, but then that is so often the case in B&Bs.
If you are staying in Harrogate, book this place early, becuase I cannot imagine it has spare rooms in the busy season.
Will definitely be staying here again !
