The Grafton's managers clearly have a great eye for detail - it is beautifully kept, very stylishly decorated and was immaculate. Not a scuff mark to be seen anywhere, it looked as though it had literally just been decorated and it was a delight to stay in.

Having just spent the weekend based here would have no problem in recommending to friends looking for some where different to stay. The whole place was wonderfully decorated, clean and our room (16) was delightfully large and comfortable. The photo's on the web site did not do it justice. A stated by others the breakfast was superb with great choice....

The owners and staff were very friendly...

We stayed here when visiting friends who lived in Harrogate over the Easter bank holiday.
