The hotel is imposing and suitably 'majestic' in a central location in Harrogate. I was there on work in the exhibition centre so didn't get to experience the town itself. However, the hotel reception rooms maintain their original character and are lovely. The bedrooms cover 4 floors and seem to be spacious. My room was a typical 4 star ish affair. Everything was fine but not much character in the room. Yes, there is room for some TLC, particularly in the bathroom but essentially, it had everything required of it. Interestingly, my colleague's room was far more attractive than mine with a nicer bath!
We ate in the bar. The barman was very friendly and the food was simple but just what I wanted! I did use the 'leisure centre'. Breakfast was again, typical. Gorgeous room, expensive for what it was, but normal selection you would expect. This does indeed seem to require some modernisation and touching up. I didn't go into the pool (it's very small) and it looked 'fine' but not especially 'beautiful' or 'relaxing' the way you often expect. I did use the gym which is very small and not brilliantly equipped. It's not a 'proper' gym, more a little room attached to the hotel with 3 Lifefitness treadmills (old), 2 Technogym bikes (old), 2 cross-trainers (old) and 2 rowers (also old). All worked OK but they were very tired. The whole room looked tired. The weights area was extremely limited and the stretch/stomach area had 2 tiny little mats! Enough to tick you over but not for anything really serious!
