Stains on the soft furnishings. Thankfully the sheets were clean. The small shower room was adequate, but strongly suggest that the shower heads and grout in the shower are inspected as they were extremely...

This is a very pleasant B&B. The owner is very nice and quickly replied to email queries when we were on our way. Welcomed in by an older chap who we think was her father in law, but very kind and helpful. Well located for the town and a short distance to many eateries. Harrogate is a lovely town and...

Was a bit of a trek to the room which was at the top of the house but landlady carried my suitcase in spite of my protestations! Well worth the climb though, huge bed and modern en suite. Breakfast was good with local produce and a selection of choices. We had one small issue with the hot water running out...

This is definitely the best Guest house we have ever stayed in anywhere in the country. If you are going to Harrogate this is the pace to stay.

Excellent accommodation, spotlessly clean and full of character. Very tastefully decorated. Went for our 45 th wedding anniversary and a concert at the Royal Hall. The breakfast was also excellent. We were made to feel very welcome. Really enjoyed it. Would definitely go again.
