Booked the night before departing from Thimble Mill/Cottage in the Cotswolds, we were unsure of what to expect upon our arrival in the quiet side street on the outskirts of Harrogate's town centre... Service: From booking to departing the hotel, the service was impeccable. Taxis and restaurant reservations were booked for us by the hotel receptionist, and we were always... More

Before arriving at this hotel, I read a number of reviews which Did not fill me with hope. However, upon arrival I could not understand what I had read, because this hotel is beautiful, well kept, thoughtfully decorated and luxurious! If you can, stay in the Windsor Suite, which we were fortunate enough to get at a discounted rate; it... More

Lovely old building in need of some restoration work. Wooden window frames were in need of replacing. Had a room towards the top of the hotel, no lift and twisty stairs with a few fire doors to negotiate if you have luggage so for someone not good on their feet it would be a problem. Shower lacking pressure, but otherwise... More

Huge bathroom and a four poster bed. Location good for the city centre - about 10 mins walk. Breakfast OK but not really worth the money - felt a bit tired. Nothing remarkable but not awful. Free parking outside a plus point.

We had the room in the photo, a double four-post bed, which was part of a junior suite. Extremely comfortable, very clean and hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fantastic, if you don't find anything you like here, you're very hard to please. Was surprised to see a dog, but yes, pets are welcome. The only down side... More

We visited for a night with our dog in August. The hotel is beautiful, location is excellent just a short walk from Harrogate centre. The service was fantastic, all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The best thing was that the hotel is dog friendly, our ridgeback stayed in the room with us, and the staff really looked...
