“Elegant hotel, lovely large comfy bed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011 via mobile

We decided to go for the highest rated trip-advisor hotel, at the price we wanted to pay, and we weren't disappointed. Arriving and booking in at 5pm wasnt a problem, The staff were helpful even telling us where we could go and eat that evening. Breakfast was good.
The only niggle I would say was the lack of a complimentary soap in the bathroom - there was a bottle of body lotion, but that was it. I am sure the staff would've provided some, if we'd asked, but by then we'd had to open our cases & get our own out.

We stayed for three nights to celebrate my wife's birthday. Summing up:

Clean, friendly, good breakfast and evening menu (white linen table cloths and napkins are always a good sign), good nights sleep, great value, eight minutes walk from town. What more could you want?
An all round good experience.

Well done The Ascot.

Stayed for one night (a Friday) and a breakfast the following morning. Arrived early (to change for a wedding) not a problem, the room was ready early for us.
Location spot on just a few minutes walk from the middle of Harrogate.
Clean, quiet, comfortable bed, nice bathroom.
Excellent breakfast - I would have loved to try their evening meal.
Friendly, upbeat staff.

This place was a delight and we left feeling we really want small hotels like this to succeed and thrive.

The perfect location - close enough to town centre for walking in but far enough to avoid the horrors of the weekend stag and hen parties. Bus stops outside the hotel make it even easier. Excellent breakfasts - we didn't eat there in the evenings. Rooms very clean and comfortable. It is an old building with quirky layout - steps all over the place even on the ground floor - so anyone with mobility problems would need to check carefully if it would suit them. And decor and carpets in public rooms look somewhat tired; I am sure the relatively new and very friendly owners will address this as and when they can. But for a reasonably priced break for anyone else it's ideal.

Room Tip: Just ask when booking - the staff are very helpful.

A great hotel experience: very friendly and helpful staff, nice room, excellent food and good location. Proprietors and staff go out of their way to help the guests and to make them feel at ease. Three course dinner is well worth staying in for (superb meringue with strawberries and cream for dessert). Bus stop just outside the hotel makes it easy to take the bus in to town, but you can also walk to the rail station in the city centre in 15 minutes (pick up some fish and chips at Graveley's on the way).

We received a warm welcome on arrival, the room was lovely, very spacious for a double & very comfortable.
The hotel is beautiful & very central, the walk into the town centre takes 5 to 10 minutes & is very pleasant.
The staff are all very nice & extremely courteous & efficient at all times & made our stay a very pleasant one.
The food is excellent & we stayed DBB & we were not disappointed in any way.
There is a nice bar and lounge area & the drinks are very reasonably priced.
My wife & I thorougly enjoyed our 2 nights & we would love to go again.

Room Tip: Our double room was the cheapest but it was lovely & very spacious
