“Good quality B & B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Quiet location but only 10 min walk to town
Reasonably sized first floor room and clean and warm with recently installed ensuite shower room
House not for those liking minimalist modern decor but friendly owner and good quality breakfast
Felt safe leaving car on the street

Room Tip: First floor room very adequate size and light and airy

Stayed for three nights in this fantastic guest house. Very friendly and accommodating owners, lovely clean and quiet room in quiet location, very comfortable bed, super breakfast, fantastic shower room and very very convenient for town centre (or conference centre if you were attending there). No parking issues either thanks to permits provided by David and Ruth. Cant wait to return - a really wonderful stay. Thanks very much.

Wonderful place to stay, very homely and cosy, followed by a tasty full English breakfast to set you off for the day. David and Ruth are a very kind and helpful couple, who made our short stay in Harrogate a memorable one.

Room Tip: Check it out, all looked good to me

Spent 2 nights at April House end of November. Could not fault it ,every thing went well, very comfortable room, easy parking, great breakfast, nice and quiet at night and very friendly hosts.
Would recommend to anyone wanting to be near the centre or conference centre.
Warmer weather would have been nice but you can't have it all !

Room Tip: We had the room with the mega sized bed, but from what we saw they all looked good.

Stayed 2 nights at this lovely house. David & Ruth are fantastic hosts and very approachable if needing any advice. Room was a good size and very comfortable with a lovely modern shower room. The shower cubicle was also a good size. Very convenient location just a short stroll into town and also in quiet road with parking not a problem while we were there. Breakfasts were well worth getting up for. With plenty of options available. We knew the area fairly well but plenty of useful books available for places to go etc. Or as said both David & Ruth always on hand with local knowledge of restaurants, Shops & pubs. We really do hope we will be seeing you again and thoroughly recommend it to others. Just hope there will still be room for us.

Room Tip: I would think any room would be well worth the money

Thank-you for taking the time to write a review - it is very much appreciated. Ruth and I are delighted that you enjoyed your short stay with us and hope to see you again. Harrogate is a lovely town to visit especially when there isn't an 'r' in the month!

We spent nine lovely nights at David and Ruth's outstanding Bed and Breakfast, April House. They were extraordinarily helpful and accomodating from the moment we inquired about availability. They sent us "insider tips" for driving from our arrival airport in Manchester and welcomed us with tea and cookies even though we showed up several hours early. Throughout the week they offered recommendations about places to go, sites to see, restaurants, pubs, and shops. Our room was simply superb with a comfy bed, large windows to enjoy the views of the quiet neighborhood, and a spectacularly well appointed bath. Everything was spotless. Breakfasts were sumptuous, made to order, and our daily interactions with David and Ruth were always engaging. For those who have business at Menwith Hill, a base bus stop is just a block away at the bottom of the hill, 2-3 minute walk. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in Harrogate.

Thank-you Tim and Mac for your very complimentary review. Ruth and I enjoyed meeting you and are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. One thing I would like to point out to anyone reading your review, the en-suite consists of a large shower, toilet and wash basin - there is not a bath, which people reading your review might think there is. Once again, many thanks and we hope your return to St. Petersburg went smoothly.
