“Welcoming ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2012

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 !

This reasonably priced B&B needs your attention. We stayed 1 night passing through Harrogate to visit Bettys and Harlow Carr. It is situated in a quiet-ish street literally around the corner from the Convention Centre, a short walk to the city centre shops (including Bettys) and a picturesque 45 minute walk to the RHS garden Harlow Carr through Valley Gardens & The Pinewoods. There is ample on-street parking with a permit supplied on arrival. The welcome you receive from Richard and Judy is exemplary. We stayed in double room number 2. It was filled with the biggest very comfortable bed with lovely sheets and pillows.The large bay overlooking the street had thick curtains and blinds. A small shower room en-suite was spotless, a bit of a "trickler" but servicable. The towels white; soft clean smelling and fluffy. Free wi-fi internet access (always a bonus) with numerous electrical sockets; plenty of tea and coffee with facilities in the room; a mobile fan (as it was hot weather) and flat screen TV. The breakfast was freshly cooked to order between 8 & 9, with a lovely range of fresh fruit and creamy fruit yoghurt and freshly made toast and cafitiere coffee. What a bargain, what a treat.

Family run, friendly B&B within a few minutes walk of beautiful Harrogate with many shops - chains and family run businesses. The room was small, clean with every facility required and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. The breakfast was delicious - tasty bacon and sausages are to be recommended! The only criticism I have of the Welford was the smell of smoke thoroughout the property which resulted in my rating being 4 instead of 5 stars.

Thank you so much for your lovely review, we put alot of time into trying to make guests welcome and comfortable when staying with us, our rooms are not over large as we are a victorian terraced house, also I would just like to say I'm sorry that you felt that there was a smell of smoke throughout our home, we are a non smoking guesthouse and try to ensure everyone understands this, we hope this does not put you off staying with us in the future.
Kind Regards Judy

Exceptionally good B&B within a few minutes walk of Harrogate centre and plenty of good restaurants. Modern clean rooms with excellent en-suite. Lovely breakfast cooked and served by the exceptional hosts Richard and Judy. Nothing was too much trouble. It's only a shame I can only give it a 5 rating they deserve a 10.

We arrived at the hotel to be shown to our room by Judy, the room was lovely, very clean and had everything we needed and more (especially loved the big bed). Nothing was too much trouble. Went down for breakfast and was greeted by bowels of assorted fresh fruit, cereals, juices, yoghurts, and a menu with several options of hot breakfast (try the sausage they are very tasty), tea, coffee and toast, in fact again everything you could wish for. We where more than pleased with our stay and if we go again to Harrogate we will certainly be returning to The Welford.

I just stayed for one night at the Welford and I cannot praise it highly enough! Judy & Richard are exceptional hosts and made sure my every need was catered for! The full English breakfast was superb, my single room with shared bathroom was a fantastic size, and the facilities were fantastic.
There was no noise audible from other rooms, I slept soundly and was able to let myself in at whatever time pleased me. This is a beautiful, clean, friendly guest house and I will definitely be visiting again!
