This stay just made our trip to Harrogate! We loved the large inviting lounge. The huge Christmas tree & open fire were a nice touch. Our room was a good size for a couple and a 5 year old. The ensuite is very modern and just what we were after. Can recommend the Eggs Royale for breakfast! Great atmosphere and... More

Fantastic review…….thank you. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the lounge with your little girl, she seemed delighted with the tree and the twinkly lights. The open fire is always a wow with our guests, the only trouble is, the cosiness sometimes makes it hard to leave, and enjoy what the town, restaurants and fabulous bars have to offer. Thank...
