We stayed here for my birthday weekend away and were directed to our room (we paid for a luxury double) when we arrived. I had my reservations when I was told to press the minus 1 button in the lift.......the basement. The first thing we noticed was the window faced a brick wall - not what I would call luxury! The bed was around 14 inches from the floor so even at just 31 years of age it was an effort to get in the bed. We went to reception and pointed this out (the window being the main issue) to be told there were no other rooms available. This was until we told the receptionist we were there for 2 nights and suddenly one was free? Odd.
The second room we were in however was lovely! The bathroom was dated as it was the lovely avocado colour from way back when. This wasn't an issue though as the shower totally made up for this. If only we had been put in this room initially!
Breakfast was spot on and the staff were friendly apart from one comment by someone saying "well the view isn't to everyones taste" - how is a brick wall to ANYONES taste!? It was Yorkshire stone but still......
I wouldn't stay here next time we're in Harrogate though as while we were there we found other hotels which were in a more centralised area and at a slightly better or the same price.
This hotel I would say is more a guest house than hotel.
