Hi ... We were really disappointed to read your review. Especially as it was so different to the majority of our other reviews! Firstly, I can understand not wanting to sit next to a noisy table but we would have been able to move you to a quieter area upstairs or downstairs. Secondly, apologies of course for not having enough... More

From the moment we checked in we were made to feel welcome and treated exceptionally well. We had a couple of drinks, checked into the suite, had a few more drinks, ate in the restaurant and then settled in the bar for some live music. The range of drinks were well thought out and the steak was very tasty. Chef... More

I've visited the Harpur's on several occasions and have always found the place welcoming. I love the interior of which is modern, yet homely, it's a great environment! The staff are always exceptionally accommodating, particulary their assistant manager Hayley Limbert who is very friendly. It is clear that she will go out of her way to assist you in any... More

We stayed here a few weeks back whilst on a visit to Donnington for a track day. The room was lovely and great value - very clean and well presented. After looking at reviews, we decided to dine here in the evening - we wish we hadn't! The waiting staff seemed to have absolutely no idea what they were doing,... More

We came for the champagne breakfast, we started with the granola, followed by smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, followed by the full English breakfast and of course champagne, followed by cake and coffee if you have room. We declined the cakes as we were too full can't wait to come back again.

Breaking our journey from Wiltshire to York we settled on Melbourne, a small town/village I had never heard of before and chose Harpur's Hotel. What a gem! An older building, modernised in a totally tasteful way. Parking to the rear - and no need to pay fees as the hotel covers this for you. A young clientele (compared to us)... More

I have just spent 3 nights at this small hotel and it was a lovely experience. The young staff were polite, professional and friendly. My room was extremely comfortable, clean and quiet. The bed was so comfy and linen was new and clean. The food was fabulous. I thoroughly recommend staying here if you need to stay around Melbourne.
