Could not fault this guesthouse at all. Owner friendly and welcoming. Rooms clean and nicely decorated. Owners had created a local guide for the rooms recommending days out, bars, restaurants, etc. this was really helpful. Good location and free parking also a bonus. Breakfast was excellent. We will definitely be visiting again.

Great couple of night spent here this week to round off a Wedding. Lovely home from home, very warm welcome and perfectly located for sightseeing in Harrogate. The breakfast was first class using all locally sourced produce. We'll definitely be back.

Two of us stayed here for the entire weekend. To be honest normally stay in hotels, but 4 nights in a hotel this weekend would have left the budget dying by the side of the road. Can't recommend it highly enough, would hotel staff go to the trouble of washing your soaking wet cycling clothes (carefully at that "30 degrees,... More

Having read many positive reviews of this guest house we booked via a booking agency for a three night stay. We were not disappointed, it was all that other reviews had said. A warm welcome and help with the bags as we were on the second floor. The room was very nice, the only minus was that it was on... More

This was by far the best guest house we have ever stayed in. The rooms are a very comfortable size, pleasing to the eye and with all the extras you would expect in a hotel. Lindsay and John, our hosts, could not have been more hospitable. They provided excellent information about the local restaurants, where to shop and where to... More

We stayed at this lovely guesthouse in June for 2 nights over the weekend and cannot fault anything. Lindsay was very helpful with any requests we had. Rooms were spacious and clean and also immaculately looked after. Breakfast was great, loads of choice and variety and all freshly cooked. Location from centre was a 3-4 minute walk which was ideal... More

We loved the location and overall feel of The Fountains Guesthouse. Lindsay is a wonderful hostess. The place is very clean and the breakfast is outstanding. There is a great selection of breakfast foods with much of it locally sourced. We'd return with pleasure.

This guest house is really welcoming. Lindsey was a great host making us feel at home right from the front door. The breakfasts were excellent with a good choice, though for me it has to be the full English which offered a Masham sausage, lovely bacon and all the rest. The hosts don't confuse quantity with quality either: there was... More

I am a very fussy and hard to please person so rest assure this review is all the more relevant to those who are of the same nature.
