“Modern, comfy B&B a stones throw (literally) from HIC”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

I stayed recently with a group while attending a conference at HIC. The Arc markets itself as a luxury B&B and is true to it's word. Lovely, modern decor in the rooms, recently fitted bathrooms with an awesome power shower (hard to get out of!). Only criticism here is that the bathrooms are tiny. Fine if there is only one person to a room, however I am guessing it would be a little bit cramped for two people. Really comfy bed and great room treats including hot chocolate sachets and cookies. Plenty of options at breakfast and the bread was lovely and fresh. Unfortunately we were kept awake by an extremely drunk person coming into the B&B on the second night and making quite a racket (owners do not live on the premises so unfortunately it went on for a while!). However this was just an unfortunate incident and overall we had a great stay. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it as a great option for anyone coming to the conference centre.

I stayed from 11th to 14th November for a conference. The Hotel is in a perfect location for the conference centre, directly across the road and a 5 minute walk to the town and shops. I arrived in the evening when Lisa the owner was not around. However, she ensured that she contacted me during my journey to ensure I gained access to my room, when I arrived. The whole hotel is decorated to a high and stylish standard. My double room was well furnished, equiped and decorated in a warm and inviting manner and was spotlessly clean. There was nothing more, I could have required in my room. Lisa asked daily when I would like my breakfast to ensure it was freshly cooked and at a suitable time. Breakfast was very nice and I was given a variety of cooked and continental options to have. Unfortunately, I was unwell during my stay and Lisa even offered to bring me some medication back from the supermarket during the day, which was really very kind and considerate. My stay overall was perfect and there is nothing that I would change or improve. I feel Lisa goes above and beyond to ensure her customers have a great stay. I will definately be recommending this hotel in the future. A fantastic hotel Lisa, thank you for your hospitality, Dawn.

The breakfast is served in the breakfast room and is freshly cooked by Lisas mum and nothing was to much trouble. The bedroom was beautiful and vary clean ample products coffee and tea tv good wardrobe space and a beautiful big light airy window. This is a perfect little B & B a real find !!!!!!!!!!!

A brilliant stylish interior , solid oak, stainless steel and trendy radiators + great individually cooked breakfasts , well equipped rooms and really clean, too.
Across the road is the Conference Centre, 5 minutes to the shops, and parking for 3 cars at the rear, off road, or by street vouchers provided

Room Tip: at rear would ensure quiet

We stayed at the Arc Hotel in mid september 2012 and was allocated the Loft Room, which was large enough for three of us. We were telephoned prior to arrival with instructions on how to gain entry which went very smoothly! The room was decorated to a high standard with a comfortable bed and sofa bed, LCD TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The en-suite had a bath with shower over and was beautifully decorated with lovely soft towels and toiletries. The B&B has a lovely contemporary feel to it and breakfast was very good, nothing was too much trouble. It was very well located and a 5 minute walk into Harrogate with plenty of restaurants. We didn't use the car park but used on-street parking and was provided with permits. Overall this is a very modern and well run place to stay, we were so impressed we have booked to stay again!

Room Tip: The Loft Room is right at top of building so do not choose this room if you cannot make the stairs!

Great locaton, close to shops, pubs and restaurants. Beautifully decorated and furnished building, refurbished to a high standard. Rooms are lovely, spotlessly clean and a good size. Bathrooms are modern and the shower was probably the most powerful I'd ever had!!!!. Breakfast superb and cooked fresh at a time we choose by a text to the owner.The owner is lovely, and very friendly. We were so impressed we booked again for our trip to Harrogate next year.

Room Tip: I saw 2 of the rooms and expect all are of an equally high standard

Easy self service check-in after excellent communication by text and telephone call with the owner, nothing was too much hassle. Room and bathroom immaculate, quite small but unless you plan to be spending a lot of time there it is more than adequate. Lovely, modern decor, great toiletries and plenty of space for clothes. Comfy bed and quiet considering it is located on a main road. Breakfast fabulous, cooked as requested and plenty of cereal, fresh fruit and breads to help yourself to. Parking was full so used a disc provided - make sure you fill it in properly attendants are keen in the area. Very good location - 5 mins walk to the centre. Excellent value for such a nicely looked after hotel. Highly recommended you won't be sorry if you book today.
