We stayed for a weekend girly treat. The hotel is in a good location with parking available, and walking distance from the town centre. The good points of our stay was that the staff were very accommodating and friendly. We were given great advice on where to visits for real ale and easy to follow directions. Breakfast was delicious and... More

We have just returned from another great stay at a favourite hotel. The staff were very attentive, the room was great (thank you for the upgrade - it was lovely) as was the bathroom. We stay here often and have never had a bad experience

Used to stay here occasionally some years ago and it was always good value, a bit bohemian and had a reasonable restaurant. Was a little disappointed this time round, staff friendly enough (although the chap on reception was a bit over familiar); for some reason the restaurant has now been closed which was odd. The decor feels a little bit... More

I have had the pleasure of staying in some of the nicest hotels this country has to offer. My stay with my family at the Balmoral was up there with them, not due to facilities or the decor (which is lovely) but by the warm, friendly and extremely attentive service. We were looked after on arrival by the general manager... More

I organised a private work dinner at the Balmoral in February for 14 of us. We had a fabulous evening. The organisation beforehand by Steve including seating and menu options was extremely efficient, considerate and thoughtful. He could not have been more accommodating. The food was great and satisfied even the largest of appetites. The service was impeccable, Pedro the... More

Just wanted to compliment the hotel and management for making yesterday's treat for my wife (on behalf of our son) as pleasant as it was. We were greeted courteously, offered a free glass of prosecco and shown to window seated sofa. Plenty of time for a pre dinner drink and to browse the menu. We asked for and were given... More

This was our 2nd stay and we were every bit as impressed as we were first time round. We stayed in room 10; lovely comfy bed with snuggly duvet. Beautiful and clean and nice Moulton Brown hand wash/hand lotion in the en suite. Breakfast freshly cooked and very good. The waiting and reception staff were efficient and friendly and the... More

The hotel in is in a nice suburban area and is approximately a 10 to 2 minute walk from the town centre. The staff and especially the manager were very friendly. When we arrived we asked if the room had a bath, which it didn’t. By the time I’d unloaded the cases and finished checking in, the new room had... More

My colleagues and I booked this hotel as we were attending a conference in Harrogate. We booked through an offers site but would have been happy to stay here without the offer and will definitely be returning. The hotel staff are great, and really looked after us. Stephen and all the front of house staff were polite and accommodating and... More
