This hotel had character, it had ambiance and yes it did have age but it was lovely not to face the same old look and faded modernism of chain hotels. The Majestic probably has had its day but we loved the location, the service was excellent and the layout worked. Our room was large, it was on the fourth floor... More

Took a short autumn trip by coach to North Yorkshire and stayed at the Majestic for four nights. What a pleasure that was... we have been on many coach holidays and at times are disappointed by both the quality of the room and meals that seem to be reserved for those from the 'coach party.' Certainly not so with the... More

Beautiful character building in a gorgeous setting. Staff faultless, food good. Bathroom clean and modern. Lovely huge old world room but oh, so in need of decorating. There was a huge mould stain ( 1m ) on the curtains that spoilt the whole room. We didn't want to touch them it was awful. Hope the receptionist really did listen when... More

This is a hotel that belongs to another age.Built at the beginning of the 20th.century the hotel retains some of the grandeur of the period with huge public rooms,high ceilings and grand staircases.To their credit the owners are doing their best to maintain the heritage but some areas of the hotel are rather tired.The gardens are extensive are very pretty....

Dear 890Jon123, Thank you for posting your review which I enjoyed reading. Certainly in many ways Harrogate itself is a step back to a nicer time and this is a big part of it's draw. I'm really happy that you found our efforts to be authentic and that the service provided was of a high standard. Looking forward to your... More

Lovely and grand old building, impressive public rooms, we have stayed at the majestic many times in recent years, first time we went we got put into a dump of a room, stained mattress, peeling wallpaper, missing tiles in bathroom, threadbare curtains and generally dirty. After complaining we were moved into another room which was excellent, it had only just... More

Hotel was as described although decor a little tired in places, it is under refurbishment. Rooms were clean and well presented, staff were a joy and nothing too much trouble. Spa treatments were the best I'd ever had. Excellent central location.

This hotel is very comfortable & majestic. the room was in a very good state of repair & was very clean. The breakfast was very good, the plates were pre-warmed which helps keep your food hot with buffet style serving. The hotel is very close to the centre of Harrogate, a walk of approx. 10 mins. I would certainly stay... More
