Booked a 2 night stay B & B. We had a lovely small double room with en - suite which was more than adequate for us. Breakfast consisted of buffet style cereal and fruit juices plus full English or other choices. The staff were more than helpful and courteous. We even got a loyalty card. We decided to have an...

Great overnight stay and excellent meal last night. We have stayed here many times over the years and eaten here often. Over the last few years we have always enjoyed our stays but the quality of the food has not always been as good as we had grown used to. Last night's meal was all of a high standard from... More

Brilliant place to stay. We spent 2 nights there and could not fault the location, accommodation, staff, food. Ideal place to stay for visiting Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon. Lived down the road from the hotel for a number of years and will definitely stay here when visiting friends and family.

This was our second visit to the boar's head and it served to prove our original opinion that the standards offered her are among the best still remain! Our room was so clean and well presented!

For our overnight . stay we had the Chinese Room. Beautifully appointed with lovely fabric for the curtains and matching bedheads. The very large double bed was luxurious and very comfortable. A large fan ...I mean LARGE, and faux bamboo furniture completed the theme. The tea tray had REAL coffee as well as several teas, but only two biscuits. That... More

Words cannot describe what a wonderful Hotel this is. We arrived on a cold wet day and the minute you walk through the door the warmth of the place hits you.

Outdated rooms behind main hotel . Solo travelers get inferior choice of rooms. Do not accept a ground floor bedroom unless you want a disturbed night sleep.This place doesn't know what soft close doors or sound proofing is, never mind security.Staff friendly and efficient but don't expect a response from the Manager if you have a complaint.

Hello Tillypip. Thank you for your review. I am pleased that the staff you encountered were friendly. I am so sorry that our standards were not reached on this occasion. I was not made aware of your issues at the time and would have been only too happy to speak with you. As a restored coaching Inn and listed building,... More

Well, I'm at the Boar's Head at the moment and can't understand the negative reviews. My room (Poacher's Den) is warm and comfortable, and I've had breakfasts and an evening meal delivered as room service with no extra charge. The staff I've encountered have been friendly and helpful. My only criticism is that I'd prefer a stand-up shower to a... More

Not visited for a few years and thought we would see the place again.Called in for lunch on our way home. Good choice of lunch , friendly service and well worth another visit. The rump steak and sticky toffee pudding were naughty but nice.

This is a comfortable pub and hotel which offers a good service to customers. We stayed for one night in a room in across the road from the main building.
