Booked this hotel for a weekend away with my partner and it was lovely. Room was a good sizzle, very cozy with a big comfy bed. Very short walk to the town centre. Breakfast was gorgeous! Lots if options. The honesty bar is a brilliant idea! The Owner was very friendly and welcoming. We will be back soon!

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a stay in Harrogate. We found the owners and staff to be incredibly helpful and friendly, the rooms are all thoughtfully and individually decorated - such a nice change from formulaic chains. The location is perfect - a 5 minute stroll and you're in the centre of Harrogate. Breakfast is a particular highlight,... More

Stayed at The Bijou Sunday 23rd February just for one night. Our room (a double) was lovely overlooking the gardens at the front of the hotel. Quite a bit of traffic noise though at night so we did have to close the bedroom window. We were then too hot although there was no heating on. We had to open the... More

We stayed at the Bijou for the first time this weekend. On arrival we were warmly welcomed and given a map of Harrogate so that we could go explore- land marks and places to see were fully explained which was really useful as neither of us had previously visited Harrogate. We were really impressed with the homeliness of our room... More

Stayed here one windy wet February night, Cold outside but a warm welcome within. The bedroom had every amenity including Jelly tots! Good value. Good breakfast freshly cooked . Fresh orange juice. The owners deserve their earnings as they offer good value to their customer. Quite close to centre of Harrogate-onle a short walk down the hill to the central... More

Just as described by other reviews and the website. I prefer smaller places rather than giving my money to big companies which you could get at a similar price nearby. The Bijou is closer to town than I was expecting, a real easy walk down the hill. Service was good, room was lovely with great big bathroom. I pod dock... More

We were in Harrogate for a family party and The Bijou was just perfect. It is in a great location, just a short walk into town and from the beginning we were made to feel welcome.

Stayed one night over Christmas period. Was a short walk into town which is ideal and lots of free parking at the Hotel. The room was individual with lots of special touches and a huge bathroom. The communal areas were very attractive too. Breakfast was delicious, one of the best I've had. Really high quality produce, deliciously cooked. Would love... More

The place is really lovely, all communal areas gorgeous and welcoming and a fab breakfast (one of the best I've had) We had the downstairs room in the coach house and to be fair it's pretty tired and could do with a refurb. The shower room was tiny and a bit damp Wish I could say it was better but... More
