Great location for the town centre, lovely character in each of the four rooms we occupied and our stay was so good my older children will now consider looking for such accommodation i.e. a boutique B&B rather than a big chain hotel. The breakfast was very good, great choice and the porridge was perfect.

Loved the provision of white dressing gowns, the fresh roses in the room , chocolates , and choice of drinks. Great ro have fresh milk and not the little plastic types. Toileteries... More

Just had a wonderful three day break staying at the Fountains. Certainly lives up to its reviews and I am so glad that we chose to stay here. The house is immaculately clean and there is a wonderful combination of mixing together old and new. Felt very welcome straight away after meeting Lyndsey on arrival. Stayed in a twin room... More

My friend and I needed a convenient base for a conference at Harrogate International Centre. Having attended many such events, we normally compromise on some aspect of the accommodation as it is normally difficult to find somewhere to stay that ticks all boxes without spending a fortune. The Fountains Guest House is hands down the best accommodation at which I... More

Just returned home from the Fountains guest house. Received a lovely warm welcome from Lyndsey and shown straight to our superior double room. The room was of a very good standard with quality furnishings, complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits, bottled water and chocolates. The bed was very comfortable and there is plenty of storage space for your clothes. Breakfast was delicious... More

This was my first visit to Harrogate and we booked this from the reviews and we were not disappointed . The room on the top floor was very comfortable and we were made very welcome. Breakfast was one of the best I have ever had and I enjoyed the forest fruits and also the stewed dried fruits there was so... More

Lyndsey was a friendly and very helpful host. The guest house is in an ideal location for the town centre. The bedroom and en suite were both well decorated and spotlessly clean and I will certainly book here again when I hopefully visit Harrogate in the future.
