Firstly, I never write reviews but we were so impressed with the service we received I felt I had to. We booked via Groupon and after reading reviews I was alittle sceptical. We arrived were greeted by colette, warm and friendly little did I kno my partner had ordered me flowers to go in the room colette had sorted all... More

My wife and I stayed at the Balmoral on a visit to the Turkish Baths and had an outstanding time. The staff were all fantastic, particularly the deputy manager and the hotel absolutely beautiful. We often stay in hotels and this one will now rank as one of our favourites. The rooms are beautifully furnished and the attention to details... More

My daughter and I stayed with our Labrador at the Balmoral and this was wonderful. The lady on the reception couldn't help more. She recommended a pub that allowed dogs and that she knew the food was good and even printed a map for us, she also took our telephone number so she could call when the room was ready... More

A friendly, comfortable, well appointed hotel. Our room was delightful, the staff were brilliant and breakfasts fab! We will certainly return here and recommend It highly. The hotel is just a short walk from the centre.

We stayed for one night on Monday 24th March. Room no:1 is shocking - the blind in the bathroom kept falling off (plain glass window). The blind in the bedroom was ripped, stained and did not fit. There were cobwebs all over the bathroom. I have never stayed in such a disgraceful room. The only good things about this hotel... More

Before booking the Balmoral Hotel I did look into a fair few hotels in Harrogate. Some offered cheap overnight packages with dinner and various other gimmicks which made the choice rather difficult. Upon staying at the Balmoral Hotel however, I can safely say my boyfriend and I picked the right hotel for our anniversary! We were upgraded to the wedding... More

I stayed at this hotel recently as I was attending a wedding being hosted there. Upon check in we were immediately upgraded to a suite on the ground floor due to the fact they have no lift to the higher floors and we have a pram. The staff were fantastic with children and they also have a very friendly and... More

Stayed one night on business and was not disappointed with anything even though I had a single room as opposed to a double on an overnight stop but budget only stretched so far. Great welcoming staff and chilled atmosphere for a four star hotel although bar prices were not very reasonable, and no dinner facilities but only a short stroll... More

I booked a superior room for £150 for my Fiancé 40th birthday. I only work 10 hours a week and saved half my wages since January to pay for it as a surprise. However, I was really disappointed and didn't feel the room we had was anywhere near worth this price. We stayed in room 6. There were cobwebs in... More
