Our break away was perfect from start to finish. We were met with a warm welcome. The room was modern and clean. It was a good size and had everything we could have wished for and more. The breakfast was also excellent, with a wide range of cereals and fresh fruit, homemade date and walnut loaf and freshly squeezed orange... More

We could not have asked for a better hotel. The whole hotel is chic and stylish, tastefully decorated, clean and spotless. Our room was more than comfortable with a sleek and stylish bathroom. Breakfast was a feast of fresh and delicous food and the service was wonderful!

I took my Mother and two teenage daughters for a two night break. The girls shared a twin room and my Mother and I shared a superior double which was arranged as two singles for us. The rooms were spotlessly clean with lovely decor and furnishings. The twin room had a small bathroom but it was extremely well appointed and... More

My husband and I stayed in the Grafton a year ago. I am sorry it took so long to write the review but it was such a good experience I felt I had to even after all this time. What I particularly liked was the warm welcome we received and then to find the standard was so good - spotlessly... More

We chose this Bed and Breakfast/Hotel because it was 5 star as a treat after a stressful few weeks. What a disappointment, the room was small and the bathroom was tiny, as a 5ft 6 lady I could touch the walls of the longest length of the bathroom and the width allowed you to just stand infront of the sink...

My wife and I stayed here from August 4th to August 6 2014. I have to say it was the first time I stayed in a B&B for many years and I have to say I was impressed with the quality of the rooms and cleanness was excellent. The breakfast was very nice if but a little slow, one waitress... More

As a local it is always fun to actually go inside some of the properties I have grown up around. This did not disappoint. A one night stay whilst sorting out some family business was made very enjoyable by this lovely B&B. Great room, massive bed, plenty of space to relax. And an easy walk in and out of town... More

Spent a very enjoyable 3 nights at the Grafton from 1-4 August. Couldn't fault the location, accommodation, service or breakfast! Great room with super-huge TV, spotless bathroom which looked brand new, and fantastic attention to detail ... Will definitely recommend and hope to stay again!

Travelling back to home from Wensleydale decided on a couple of days in Harrogate. The Grafton. Perfect location as 5 mins walk to the town centre. The room was comfortable with quality bedding. The breakfast was really good. All the usual choices but the full English appeared freshly cooked. No hotel warm bins here. From what I experienced? an enjoyable... More

Stayed for 2 nights for a friends wedding in Harrogate. Location was ideal, parking spaces easy to find . The Grafton stood out in it's appearance from it's surroundings. Very well maintained and beautifully decorated. Room was clean, comfortable and peaceful, plenty of storage space. A short 5 min walk into the heart of town and local bars and restaurants.... More
