“Hospitality in Harrogate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Our stay here last week was enhanced by both the hospitality of Ruth and David, and the accommodation. Wonderfully comfortable beds ( not always a given, even when paying ' top dollar'), scrupulously clean and well presented. What was refreshing was the feel of a home, rather than the featureless, standard hotel furniture etc. My sister, brother-in-law and I felt at home immediately.

Breakfast was faultless with plenty of choice including fresh fruits, an endless selection of cereals, figs, prunes, I could go on !!! also, of course, a full English, if one wished. Another welcome choice, homemade preserves, not those horrible little packs of jams etc. By the way, beans could have been available, just ask. Dining room also pleasant to eat in.

Another bonus, just a short walk into the town centre to sample the delights that Harrogate has to offer.

Thank you, Ruth and David for a relaxing stay.

Large room with modern en- suite shower room, I agree with other reviewer that two easy chairs in the bedroom was very welcome, the room itself was very clean and well presented and a view of flowering horse chestnuts out of the large windows pleasant given the close proximity of the town centre and the International Conference Centre. Very quiet location with good free parking outside.

I can only recommend it.

Recently stayed at April house, Ruth was a very genuine lady and very down to earth can not fault ruth she is funny too and goes out her way to make conversation however David got a bit snotty when an accident occurred due to a medical problem! Then were charged for it, the breakfast was nice although no beans not sure if that's just the way harrogate eat there's mind! I was told before arrival that smokers were allowed in the garden out the back however were sent on the front not a good look for advertisement, if your a young couple and may stay out a little later than usual please stay somewhere else as this is a very quiet house and I can imagine we were loud when coming in so not nice for the owners plus you can here everything in a morning from people to leaving the rooms to the dog barking , if you are just wanting a peaceful getaway and are a little older then this Is ur ideal place as its very quiet, I felt a little uncomfortable when leaving due to the small talk David was giving and my fiancé was very unimpressed with the way he spoke to him the night before over an accident.

This is the second time we have stayed with Ruth and David. They were once again welcoming and helpful. Our room was bright and clean and included really comfortable chairs which I do not often find in bed and breakfast rooms. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. It is an easy walk into the centre for restaurants etc. I would certainly recommend April House and stay there again when in Harrogate

My partner and I took my parents on a 3 night break to Harrogate - 25th to 27th April 2013. We could not have made a better choice of a place to stay than April House. Ruth and David are a charming and most welcoming couple and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The rooms were spotless, tastefully decoratied and furnished. If you can, book the bay fronted superior room as it is light and elegant with a lovely view down the tree lined residential street. David went out of his way to make my mother feel 'at home' by organising a newspaper for her each morning at breakfast. The location of April House could not be better: in a quiet road of grand Victorian houses, yet only a few minutes walk to the town centre with its wide choice of restaurants, shops etc. Thank you Ruth and David for helping make our stay in Harrogate most enjoyable.

Room Tip: The large bay fronted Superior Room is charming.

I've never written a review before, but I feel compelled to. As a couple we are used to staying in travelodge holiday inn etc places, but April House lovely charm to it that has added to our experience of Harrogate in an unforgettable way.

Lots of positives
Friendly service, tidy and clean room, easy car parking, quiet area, short walk to town (5 to 10 mins) with a brilliant breakfast included. Certainly beats any travelodge/ holiday inn etc experience as April House has a certain loveable character and charm to it.

No negatives to think of.

Hope this all helps,

Stephen

April house was clean and comfortable, ensuite, with a kettle in the room too. David and Ruth were very welcoming and straightforward to deal with. Quality breakfast cooked to order. I will come back next time I'm in Harrogate.
