We stayed here after travelling down from Scotland and were only going to stay 2 nights but liked it so much we stayed on. Jennifer is a great hostess and made you feel very welcome. The room we had was at the back overlooking the garden and was very quiet. The room was also spotless and we had a great... More

What more can you say after all the reviews below! We are not usually big fans of B&B's but I must admit might change our minds after our recent stay at Franklin View! Easy to find from the map online, very friendly welcome and were made to feel very relaxed and 'at home' right from the start. Room really lovely,... More

We stayed at the Franklin View Guest House whilst visiting the Great Yorkshire Show. The guest house is conveniently located with a 10 minute walk to town centre and the bus station. Jennifer greeted us with a warm welcome and showed us to a beautiful big and bright room with a bay window at the front of the house. The... More

We have just returned from a weekend watching the Tour de France in Harrogate. From start to finish Jennifers attention to detail, outstanding level of service and hospitality have been amazing. Having phoned many hotels and B&B's only to find that their prices were astronomical due to the Tour I finally found Franklins View where Jennifer wanted no more than... More

This is an outstanding B&B and we have nothing but praise for Jennifer for her warm welcome, her superb breakfasts and her extremely comfortable rooms. She could not have done more to make our stay more enjoyable. Franklin View is located in a quiet road only a short walk from the town centre and Jennifer provides much local information concerning... More

We have stayed here before and once again found the warmth of welcome and quality of the accommodation outstanding. Forget your boutique hotels, Jennifer sets the benchmark for proper good old fashioned bed and breakfast excellence. Everything is top notch, from the well decorated large room, the comfortable bed, thoughtful accessories and lovely bathroom; The hospitality tray is generous and... More

We have stayed at Franklin View a number of times . It is a B & B we look forward to coming back to. The rooms are spacious and fresh and the breakfasts are delicious. Jennifer is the perfect hostess. It's a pleasant walk into town for dinner. Sharon and Joe

Thanks to Jennifer our marvellous hostess who made our two night stay a real pleasure. The room was immaculate. The breakfast was delicious and very filling. The next time we are in Harrogate this will be the only place we will be staying at.

Just had our first experience of staying in Harrogate. My husband and I stayed at Franklin Guest House. We were warmly met by Jennifer the proprietor, and we immediately felt relaxed and comfortable. The bedroom was large and airy and the en-suite was a very good size. The shower was also larger than normal. The accommodation was SPOTLESS, and needless... More
