We stayed here for the weekend of the country living fair, which was excellent. We let ourselves into the room, only to find a nasty big wet patch round the toilet (which spread as the night went on). We went down to report this but there was nobody about. we went back to the room and tried the phone, which... More

We were at a charity ball at the Royal Hall which is only 150 yards away so the location is excellent. We arrived late at around 8.00pm & there was no one there to greet us. Having pressed all three bells a lady who (I understand) rents a flat or room from them buzzed the door open. Our keys were... More

Not even worth 1 star.......keys left on table for you to let yourself into your room and all your bank details including security code left for anyone to view or use! After waiting around over an hour I decided to make a quick exit but was chased down the drive by the owner who pursued me to return and promptly... More

My impressions of Harrogate were shattered by this experience. We come to Harrogate most Christmases as we like the variety of shops and when our friends suggested staying a night in the town we jumped at it. As soon as we arrived we knew this was a down trodden hotel. The hotel sign was broken, the outside was littered with... More

We booked this hotel in January and the rating was 9.5. On our arrival 23rd August as we drove into the car park we were met by building rubble furniture and dirty sacks of laundry. We went into the reception or should I say hallway. There was a table with a phone and a notice saying that breakfast was no... More

No staff at this hotel had to check in via telephone a builder working on the hotel had to show me to my room. The rest of the hotel was un occupied and in darkness and large amounts of building material and rubble around As a woman travelling alone I was not comfortable and within 5 minutes made the decision...

Fortunately we went prepared having read the reviews on here, otherwise we might have been a little shocked. We chose this place as we were on a budget & there wasn't much else available in the area. On arrival there was some confusion with our booking and we, like others on here, were moved to Ashley House (which looked more... More

This property looked great online, with a photograph of a nicely appointed dining room, but they didn't offer a B&B rate. This, it turns out, was because the kitchen was being refurbished. We did get a room upgrade, with a four-poster bed, but the room was shabby and dirty, with a rather unpleasant smell coming from the en-suite. Not really... More
