We always smile when deciding to go to Chequers. This is because my girlfriend's stepdad remembers when the restaurant first opened back in the 1970s and he advises me that the decor has changed very little since he started first going there as a small boy! However, the quality of the food is always excellent and it's clear to see... More

We stayed here in November when we visited the Harrogate Christmas Market.. Although we enjoyed our stay the inn could really do with some TLC as it was quite shabby in places but for the money we paid we cant really moan!! The room was clean and comfy and had a lovely bathroom .. the only thing was the smell... More

Nice staff , small rooms ( but cannot complain as quite reasonably priced ) very good food and the worst shower I have ever had in a hotel - plenty of pressure when ice cold but to try to get the slightest amount of heat brought it down to a dribble 45 minutes to fill a bath - please get... More

We have recently renewed all bathrooms and the low water pressure is only occurring in this room when hotel is full.Investigation is ongoing as it only happens occasionally . we have plenty of hot water and the rooms are fully central heated. More

Stayed here for one night (Saturday). Initially booked as it was half the price of staying in the centre of Harrogate and we were enticed by the promise of giant Yorkshire puddings. I've stayed in plenty of hotels, this is by far the sweetest little place of them all. We were welcomed in the very homely bar, given our keys... More

A party of 8 adults were going to The Harrogate Flower Show this weekend and we booked into the Chequers inn, which proved to be one of the best things we could have done. The proprietors went out of their way to make our stay really enjoyable. We had booked in for an evening meal on Saturday night and the... More

We stayed on the Caravan site for a week and ate here four times. The food is excellent, Good Quality, plenty of it. I don't like Carvery food because I find the vegetables are usually overcooked (or sitting around for a while) but this one is the best Carvery I have ever had. We also sampled the Fish and chips...

My husband and I stayed at the Chequrss inn for 4 nights and had a very relaxing time. The location is very peaceful and we enjoyed 2 rounds of the 18 hole putting green!! The staff were extremely helpful even agreeing to serve us with an early breakfast due to our early departure. Some parts of the Inn are looking... More

Stayed here to attend a wedding at nearby Fountains Abbey on the following day. On the way to the accommodation our car broke down and it was touch and go as to whether we would make it to the hotel or wedding. We phoned the hotel to let them know our situation, they couldn't have been more helpful. They said... More

Just spent a couple of pleasant nights here. Checking in was just going to reception and picking the key up that had been left out for us. Comfortable room with new looking bathroom, both of which were very clean. Bed was very comfortable with plenty of room, but beware the end posts in the dark! Excellent food for breakfast, lunch...
