“A very good hotel in an excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We stayed here for 1 night in July and booked the "Sunday Special Offer". Even though our room was right next to the car park, we heard no sound whatsoever. The room was very clean and the bathroom and facilities were modern. As part of the Sunday Special Offer, we received a £50 voucher, which could be used in the restaurant or bar. At the time of booking the room, we also booked a table at the Orchid Restaurant (a very good meal - I have written a separate review for this). All the staff were welcoming and very friendly and the hotel overall was very well presented. On the whole, I would definitely stop here again and would highly recommend it.

Stayed here for two nights. Walked in and was greeted by helpful happy staff fantastic customer service. My room was spotless even a fan in the room if too hot. The bathroom was just fantastic once again spotless, loved it when I walked in the lights turn on by sensor. Tea and coffee hot chocolate and lovely biscuits in the room free wifi we ate in the popular Orchid restaurant which has a big reputation in Harrogate and I agree with the reviews just stunning. This place is top of my list when I come back for a visit.

Room Tip: Can be a little noisy from the restaurant on a Saturday night that's with the window open hence...

I am lucky to use this hotel qute a lot on business as the HQ is based nearby. But its worth mentioning it is a great hotel, staff are always attentive, breakfasts brilliant and rooms spotless and the hotel Orchid Rooms are quite special!

Room Tip: Try rooms 20 - 29, they are very good!

We stayed here the weekend of the Tour if France and paid way above the normal rate to do so. On the plus side the staff were friendly, and the room clean. However the room was tiny and hot - barely enough room for a double bed, the walls paper thin so could hear all movement outside our room and the bed uncomfortable - every time my normal weight husband moved I bounced up in the bed - resulting in restless night. Breakfast was average

So many different thoughts about the hotel make it difficult to review. Really small rooms, even smaller bathrooms but the setting and restaurant are ideal. Dinner in the Orchid Restaurant was so good but the same chef served a breakfast to be avoided! A pre-prepared buffet with crunchy melon and a heated breakfast that sat there for half an hour. You know the type! No attempt to market great Yorkshire food, even down to the mass produced eggs and bacon.
How the experience can change from evening to morning with the same staff is beyond me! I wouldn't rush back to the hotel but I would to the restaurant of an evening. No air conditioning but room fans that don't do the job. A small car park behind the hotel which is useful.

Room Tip: Unfortunately they are all small so the upgrade we made to an executive room made no difference at a...

Stayed for one night. Room was at the top of the hotel room number 39, adequate, plenty of tea and coffee. Bathroom looks as if it has been refurbished, very nice walk in shower had to be very careful though as the floor of the bathroom flooded very easily. All in all a good nights sleep.
Ate in the Orchid Restaurant, lovely meal with very generous portions, the duck was fab.
Pancakes for breakfast which was very nice. Only fault felt a bit rushed when choosing meal.

Stayed at the Studley for three nights whilst working in Harrogate. Within easy walking distance of the town centre, easy parking. Excellent reception, we weren't happy with the location of the first room allocated, this was very swiftly put right with a choice of two alternatives. Room spotless, comfy bed, smart bathroom, good quality toiletries, lots of sockets for phones/iPads. Breakfast was spot on, good quality ingredients, fresh coffee. We will be back.
