Reviewed December 28, 2013

Me and my boyfriend stayed at these apartments and I can happily say we would frequent if we could. Spotless, modern, comfortable bed, kitchen appliances were easy to figure out. We shall definitely be back!!

Lovely apartments in ideal spot. Easy walk into Harrogate if you wish to do so.
All amenities that you require were supplied. Lighting a little dark inside and very limited wardrobe space.
Lovely touch on the breakfast supplied from Bettys tearooms.

Tip would be to put a bit more lighting outside

My self and my daughter stayed at The Lawrence Apartments on York Road, we where given the coach house wow what a place it had everything we needed, and close to the town centre We have stayed in Harrogate before in different Hotels, but will always stay at these apartments from now on. The only problem we had was we didn't want to leave.

I recently stayed in one of the two bedroom apartments on York Road with some friends. The apartment was really well decorated and maintained, and it was a lovely space to call home for the weekend.

The apartment was well located, and had everything that you could wish for - a comfortable bed, great shower, fridge etc.

However, there were a few problems - the main one being the soundproofing. My friends and I returned back to the apartment around midnight, and we retired to bed shortly after. We were all kept awake until 2.30am-3am by people coming in and out of the other apartments, running up and down the stairs and generally making noise from their apartments.

I appreciate that the owners can do little about how noisy these people were being, but if the soundproofing was improved it would sound less like these people were actually in our apartment and the noise would be a faint murmur, rather than us being able to hear everything word for word.

The only other issue for us was that we couldn't get the cooker to work, no matter how hard we tried. I'm not sure if it was broken or if we just couldn't figure it out - a minor issue for us, as we ended up going out for breakfast instead.

Overall, great apartments in a fantastic location but don't hold out for a sound night's sleep - we definitely didn't feel rested after our stay!

Stayed in apartment D on Duchy Rd in November for a girls weekend. Apartment was lovely, spacious and well equipped and the location was perfect only a 5/10 minute walk to the centre.

However the lighting in all the rooms is terrible! The rooms were really dark even with all the lights switched on. There were no bulbs in the wardrobe light fittings so you couldn't see your clothes! Bathrooms were lovely too but again please improve the lighting.

I stayed at this apartment twice this year, one week in July 2013 and two weeks in September/October 2013. They put me on Kings Rd in July 2013, and both York Rd and Duchy Rd in September/October 2013. I have stayed in the single room apartment, the two bedroom apartment, and a guest house. I had an wifi problem during my first stay but they offered me a free dinner at the restaurant next door while using their internet instead, which I kindly declined. Overall, it's a pleasant stay; it's clean, spacious, and walkable to the city center and restaurants.

We stayed in the Studio apartment on Kings Road at the beginning of Nov 2013 for 2 nights. It is exceptionally well furnished with excellent quality fittings. Exceptionally clean throughout. Great comfortable bed. Just a stones throw from the town centre with all it's amenities. Bathroom was spacious with an excellent power shower. Kitchenette is excellent again with excellent fittings. Lounge area great with quality modern fittings. All in all, a first class establishment. Would definitely stay again and would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Forget conventional Hotels, try the Lawrance for it's exceptional quality.
