Run by nice friendly people, this guest house is a perfect base for a short stay in harrogate. Our room was a reasonable size, well decorated and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was was good quality Yorkshire fayre although some basic dairy free alternatives would've been good (nothing unusual just soya milk and a non butter spread of some type). 10 min... More

We stayed here for two nights. Very conveniently located for the centre of Harrogate and with an excellent choice of restaurants.The room was beautifully decorated, spacious, with comfortable beds. The breakfasts were delicious, freshly prepared with a wide choice. Nothing was too much trouble for our hostess. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend.

Well priced, 3 minutes from the conference centre, good Wi Fi, great breakfasts and friendly staff. What more could you want from a conference hotel/guest house? Harrogate is a great conference venue and having the Fountains in my address book makes it perfect!

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.

we had a warm welcome and were shown our rooms. It is great that in a guest house we had better luxuary than in a top rate hotel. 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
