Me and my boyfriend stayed here for two nights and had a lovely stay. The hotel is a short walk to the Harrogate spa and the local shops.
The on sight restaurant was superb, the food was great.
The morning breakfast was also really nice, as were the staff.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel for three days as members of a large party. We found a place in the car park although it would not have mattered if we could not because they have a system for getting you free parking nearby, check-in was fast and our bags arrived within minutes. Our room (36) was large and modern - the bed larger than king size, a large flat screen, in room wifi with a good fast signal, tea coffee, iron board etc. The bathroom was also modern with a complex shower facility. The wardrobe was sufficient but the door opened the wrong side which could have easily been corrected. The one thing wrong with the room was the heating which barely worked (despite the attentions of three staff including a plumber) although the hotel gave us an electric heater as a substitute. We had breakfast every morning in the hotel and what was on offer was more than sufficient and good including fresh coffee. One night we ate in the restaurant and again, the food was good and they managed one vegetarian diet. We would stay here again without any doubt, even if the heating had not been fixed because the hotel and its staff are very good. It was a pleasure to be here.

Room Tip: Front or side is better than rear, higher levels better than lower - we do not know which rooms migh...

Excellent location - a short walk to the town centre and railway station. We requested a quiet room on a high floor - and were given exactly what we asked for. The room was a reasonable size,clean, king-size bed was very comfy and we had a new modern en-suite. We enjoyed a cocktail in the bar -seating was a bit limited though. Breakfast was only average - it was a buffet for the hot food. Service wasn't the best - our table was not laid properly and had various things missing which we had to ask for. We would stay again - but only if we could have the same room (Executive double) on the top floor.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room on a high floor - which would be quieter

We booked as a last minute, directly with the hotel. The package included a £30 voucher to use in the hotel or at the restaurant. We had a superior double, which on looking at the standard doubles, we were glad we did as they seemed quite cramped in comparison. Hotel is very clean, staff are extremely attentive, nothing is too much trouble. Our original room was at the very top of the hotel, room 38 and was extremely cold but without hesitation we were moved to room 9, which was much warmer. My only criticism about this room is that it is next to the bar and at 6 in the morning, could hear what sounded like barrels being moved. So would be possibly chose a different room next time we visit, which we definitely will.
Go to the restaurant as the food is fabulous.
All round an enjoyable weekend and would highly recommend and we will be going back.
We even talked about having it as a regular get away venue!

Staff were extremely professional and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble, very clean rooms with attention to detail. Ate at the Orchid Restaurant downstairs, this specialises in 'Pacific Rim' food. This was fully booked when I tried to book a table the day before arrival, however when I told 'Maria' that I was a guest she managed to find a table and called me back to confirm. The restaurant was exceptional, with elegant surroundings, attention to detail and amazing quality of food. We needed a 5:30am (non-cooked) breakfast as we had a balloon flight booked for the morning - this was ordered the previous evening, brought to the room for no extra charge and very punctually, and was delicious (thank you, Edward!). I found our double room a little claustrophobic as I like to open the window and couldn't, hence sleep could have been better. Free access (with a pass from reception) to pool/sauna/steam room/gym within another hotel 2 mins walk away, was an added bonus which we made use of on arrival. Came away feeling very well looked after, by a caring and professional team.

Just returned from a 1 night stay, we originally booked the white hart hotel but due to a very dirty and damaged room we received a refund so I drove to the studley and checked in, our room was gorgeous great size very clean and modern, the bathroom was big with a bath and shower, the bed was one of the best I have slept in when on my travels. We went for drinks before we went out in the bar, the bar is very modern and has a great atmosphere, if you are a breakfast person look no further as it was lovely really fresh and not your usual greasy fry up! Overall we had a grey stay here and we will be back. Thanks mr Thoburn
