After visiting family in Leeds we decided to travel a few miles north to Harrogate.
Find somewhere nice to stay overnight with parking, and maybe have a few drinks and a meal in the town.
We booked a double room with breakfast and secure parking in the Old Swan as recommended by the tourist information centre.
The hotel is impressive on approach.
We paid the bill and were given our card key.
I thought the room was was very clean, what was described as a double bed looked very small and it was small for two average framed adults.
Not a comfortable bed and we both found it hard to sleep through the night.
The bathroom was also very clean but so small the door hit the side of the bath / shower on entry.
Our two tradition breakfasts were very nice with plenty of tea and coffee.
All in all the place is very clean indeed.
The staff seemed to provide a required service, but there is no humour or personality which was a shame.
The hotel may have been suitable for Agatha Christy but we were not impressed.
It is not welcoming or friendly, some guests looked like they have a nasty smell under their noses.
It was somewhere to try to sleep / shower and eat breakfast.
It was no more and not worth £118 per night.
