Stayed for one night for a brief visit to Harrogate. First impressions very good. Plenty of parking in the car park or on the road outside with a permit from reception. The receptionist was friendly and welcoming; we arrived before check in yet our room was ready and we were able to check in early. We stayed in a standard... More

We stayed here for one night last week in the Windsor Suite. It is a lovely hotel - the reception area is very appealing and the staff were all lovely - especially the lady on reception who was happy to chat away with our 4 year old! We were in a suite so we could put the kids in a... More

Staff at Balmoral were lovely. The room we were in did not lock from inside. The worktops had not been cleaned properly. The shower was the equvelant of standing under a dripping tap. No pressure or hot water. The bar and reception were nice but for £100 for 1 night it was well below par. Room needs a good lick... More

We recently booked to go away for the weekend at a different hotel. Lots of stars and no parking. We then had a look on the internet and discovered The Balmoral Hotel which had parking and breakfast included. However, only 3.5 stars - I was a little worried! I needn't have been and am so glad I changed my booking.... More

My wife & I stayed for a weekend break - the staff were very friendly & helpful - the hotel is attractive outside & in, room & bathroom were spotlessly clean, bed very comfortable, breakfast was piping hot & filling with a good selection, location very central & no distance from the main attractions whilst being on a quiet street....

We stayed here for one night and glad it wasn't any longer. The lady on reception and serving at the bar was fantastic. She couldn't do enough for you and definitely went the extra mile. Breakfast was good and so was the service. That's all the positives done. I can imagine when the hotel was first done up it was... More

Several elements have to come together to make a very good hotel, and this one achieved it. The staff were first class and did everything to make our stay a welcome one. The breakfast was well up to standard and there was a good choice on offer. With so many restaurants within easy walking distance, the lack of evening meals... More

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
