My husband and I booked this hotel for an overnight stay through booking.com. We arrived early and our room was not ready, which wasn't a problem as we could leave the car and go for lunch. When we arrived back, our room was ready and we checked in. On arrival in the room we noticed it had not been cleaned... More

Bought and redeemed a special rate voucher for a 2 night stay at this hotel. While endorsing some previous comments, the decor of the room we had was slightly tired and could do with a little TLC, have to say that this hotel is in a great location (for a short walk into town centre), food is good quality and...

I stayed for 2 nights in the Windsor suite with my wife and baby daughter. On arrival we were all given a warm welcome by Sophie, an outstanding member of staff. The suite itself is fantastic; it's spacious, clean, with a massive bath (and seperate shower) and the Molton Brown accessories that the ladies love. For the evenings there is... More

Inside the reception area was lovely plush good quality seating very nice. The assistant manager was there with a wonderful welcome we were early so we just sorted the permit for the car... More

The hotel staff were very friendly helpful and efficient when we told them that there were three lights out in our room. Public rooms stylish and breakfast was delicious with a good choice of options. Our room (24) was a bit tired and in need of some maintenance but still comfortable and spacious.

We stayed here with another couple for two nights. The hotel is very comfortable, and the staff are extremely welcoming and helpful, especially Collette and Sophie. They answered every question, and were quick to help with additional information. The cream tea was good, as was breakfast. The location is a close walk to the centre of Harrogate, but is also...

We stayed here at the end of May with our daughter who turned 3 while we were there. On arrival staff were pleasant and efficient (and the bar was much cheaper than we expected). They worked to make it a personalised service from the moment we got through the doors, calling our daughter by name which was a nice touch.... More
