We visited Harrington House as part of a members' special event. We have come to expect good standards of food after having stayed at several HF houses, but this was not as good as other places. The main course especially was poor, and this was the opinion of all those who had the roast beef on our table. The meat... More

I stayed here on an HF short break walking holiday which was very well run and enjoyable. The hotel itself had something the character of a youth hostel for senior citizens. The other guests who were mainly Canadian were almost all over sixty. The hotel was tailored for walking holidays with a boot room and drying facilities. Meals were served... More

I was on a 4 night guided walk break, with 3 days of walking in the surrounding countryside. We were given the choice of three different levels of walks every day, ranging from easy to medium to long. I could not fault anything at all about the break. Everyone was so friendly, the staff, the guests, the walk leaders -... More

The perfect antidote to an over indulgent Christmas. Staff were mostly attentive. Food was more than passable and the HF guides were all exceptional people who obviously cared passionately about their given tasks. Room was warm, comfortable and well equipped. Huge bath (!) but would have liked a stand-up shower as well. Food quality fell a little short of haut... More

Harrington House is an historic country house and so has a certain olde worlde charm. We stayed on a weekend break with HF Holidays. Our room was of a good size and well-appointed, with television, coffee and tea-making facilities and a clock with mp3 player connection, slippers and bathrobes. Décor was up to date. There was adequate storage for two... More

We were very pleased with our choice to stay at Harrington House. Our room (23) was on the ground floor of an annex and was superb. It had recently been refurbished and offered excellent accommodation, it even had its own private walled courtyard/garden. We were aware the hotel was owned by HF Holidays and catered for group activities and as... More

Just returned from a w/e break with a friend booked through Booking.com. There was no mention that this hotel is used primarily by HF Holidays for organised walking holidays. Breakfast was 7.45-9.00am - very early for a w/e and we had to book out by 10am, again quite early. Whilst breakfast was acceptable there was no seating for groups of... More
