Just returned home from having a brilliant break at this lovely hotel, the staff are all so helpful and friendly. The hotel is situated only a 10 minute walk from the center of Harrogate, in my opinion this hotel should be a 4 star.

Good location and lots of parking. In need of a bit of upgrading but our room was lovely, warm and quiet. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice would visit again if on special offer. Five to ten minutes walk to town centre.

Stayed with my daughter. Reasonable rate. Faded elegance and a tad tired looking. Bedroom was fine. Hotel in middle of 'exciting renovation' - not entirely clear who was excited. Breakfast very good. Full English, hot and tasty. Convenient for town and good parking. Amused to see a Corby trouser press in the room! Unfortunately it didn't work - that almost...

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The hotel allows pets to stay but only guide dogs are allowed in all areas of the hotel, we do supply a separate area for guests with dogs etc which is why you maybe didn't see them. I hope that clarifies any misunderstanding. We are currently having 15...

When you first enter this hotel, it looks very luxurious and comfortable and as far as the reception rooms are concerned, its very nice. However, we were quite disappointed with our bedroom which we felt was a little behind the times, particularly the bathroom. We feel we paid a fairly high price for our stay, bearing in mind there was...

This hotel was set in lovely grounds in a reasonably central location. We booked 2 rooms, one of which was ok and the other bearably fit for our teenagers. Their room was pokey to say the least although clean and that's the main thing. Both rooms had paper thin walls and we were unfortunate enough to have to listen to...

I stayed here this week for a business conference. The hotel is in a lovely building and the staff were very helpful. The room was very clean albeit a little tired.

Lovely and charming hotel. Yes, it is currently going through a period of refurbishment and the room we stayed in was a little 'tired'. However the room was warm, the bathroom was spotless, bed linen crisp and clean, all the staff we met were friendly and professional and the choice of breakfast was excellent. Can't rate the evening meals as...
