We had an excellent stay in snowy Harrogate in January 2013. We thought the Majestic hotel really complemented our two night break. The polite, friendly faces of the reception staff got us off to a fine start, and the good feeling continued into our room, which was pleasingly decorated and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was sparkling in cleanliness and looked quite new and modern.
Smiling and helpful staff abounded in the bars and restaurant, and we enjoyed a very filling breakfast prior to venturing into the snow of Harrogate. Full marks, too, to the staff for clearing a lot of the snow from the hotel pathways.
My wife enjoyed a swim, jacuzzi and sauna in the hotel leisure centre both mornings and found the facilities much to her liking.
I know what people mean when they say somewhere is 'tired'. However, if you want to stay in a hotel where Agatha Christie, Winston Churchill and even Cliff Richard stayed, and retain some of that ambience, you can't expect a brand new place. We thought that a lot had been done to the public areas in the way of refurbishment without damaging the hotel's integrity.
We really enjoyed the Majestic and are already looking forward to returning in spring!
