We stayed for one night bought through an offer on travelzoo. We were not disappointed. We had a suite on the ground floor which was roomy, very tasteful and clean with lovely individual touches. What really blew us away however was the level of service we received from the moment we arrived until we left. All the staff were extremely... More

This past summer (2014), my wife and I visited Harrogate for my friends wedding at Allerton Castle. We booked to stay a couple of nights at the Balmoral in a superior room. On arrival we were upgraded to a junior suite by the front desk staff. The rooms were well laid out and spacious for an older building like the... More

We bought a Travelzoo deal for an overnight stay at the Balmoral. It was amazing value with afternoon tea (very good), a bottle of fizz and a delicious breakfast. It was spotlessly clean and the bed linen was lovely and crisp - something I really rate. The staff were friendly and helpful and if we are in Harrogate again we'll... More

Just back from a one night stay, booked via a Travelzoo offer, intended as a pre Christmas treat, and I am SO disappointed. The offer promised an upgrade to a superior room so I was appalled when I saw Room 24: it was dusty, worn and frankly terribly tatty. I checked with Reception that we were indeed in a superior...

We stayed two nights and we're delighted when upgraded to the Windsor suite. It was fabulous. The breakfast has a good choice and quality. The staff go out of their way to be helpful. When a friend and fellow guest became poorly they phoned the local GP to arrange an appointment. The hotel is well situated for the town centre.

We shared the Windsor Suite - good price for us both to share, bed and breakfast. the room was gorgeous - very spacious, separate sitting room with sofa... More

We had our wedding reception here in September. Both Daniel and Charlene made the celebration so special. We wanted a laid back affair so we opted for a BBQ buffet and the hotel's chef did not disappoint. The food was amazing, the breakfasts are fantastic too! The organization of the day was spot on and we both felt that the... More

Friendly and helpful staff, from checking in to service at the bar. Bedroom was superb, large with character, well worth the hike up the stairs. Breakfast really good, plenty of choice and good quality - definitely recommend here for a weekend away. The website states a cocktail bar, however having only 3 on the menu, of which you don't have... More

We stopped over for one night after returning a classic hire car . The hotel was in a good location, we enjoyed Harrogate, the hotel room was clean and the bar area was nice, special thanks to Katy on reception who was very helpful. Would stop again if visiting Harrogate which is a lovely town.

Gorgeous hotel, very welcoming, all staff were very friendly and couldn't do anymore to make sure are stay was special, in particular Charlene. Breakfast was delicious, and bar area very relaxed and cosy atmosphere. Location was just a few minutes walk into town centre and loads of excellent restaurants. Will visit again for sure.
