Harrogate hotels tend to be really pricey - they can afford to be with a busy conference centre and lots going on in the town throughout the year. If you drive just a mile or so outside of the town; you find this great place to stay. Rooms are contemporary in styling with neutral palette and white bed linen. Good quality showers and comfortable beds. Food is very good and is served in the country-luxe styled restaurant or the bustling and modern bar area. It's not a cheap menu but food is very good and there's terrific variety and a great choice of wines too. You pay at check in and as you go which speeds things up upon checking out. All in all, good value for Harrogate.
Downsides are far outweighed by positives but what stopped me rating this hotel a five star was:-
* Lack of bath tub in bathrooms
* Poor quality pillows
* Woeful Wi-Fi reception ( I gave up in the end)
* Not enough staff on at breakfast times (both times I stayed)
Whilst I stayed on personal basis, the Wi-Fi could be a make or break for a business traveller as could the breakfast staffing, if in a rush. However, as I say, good points outweigh negatives so would recommend this place highly.
