The hotel is slap in the middle of all the attractions in Harrogate and, though only just of the main A61, is attractively located and relatively quiet. The car park was over subscribed when we arrived so we parked in front and received a complimentary permit for our stay. Very friendly helpful young staff. The room was a bit mini but for the price was excellently equipped. I'm not sure how they managed to cram so much into so small a space and it all looked very fresh and clean. They provided us with two fans as it was very hot and there is no air conditioning - why don't British hotels wake up! The bathroom was as mini as the bedroom with its compact walk-in shower. We booked for the Orchid restaurant as it had 2 rosettes and we were not disappointed. The food is Asian orientated with interesting selections from Asian countries excluding India. Not having been there before we decided to share all our plates and chose two starters (enormous!) and then 4 'small' rather than regular plates with noodles. I could not believe the quantities of food that arrived - so much that I was sure the staff had made a mistake but no, these were indeed 'small plates'. My only regret was that I was unable to finish everything - so delicious. Particularly recommended was the crispy duck and the lamb massiman
Breakfasts, too, were freshly cooked with a good choice. I would definitely return.
