“Great place to stay and eat”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

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.

Really pleased we booked this hotel for our wedding anniversary treat. It was brilliant great value for money with the Sunday night deal.
The room was gorgeous & a little anniversary card left on the bed for us was a beautiful personal touch.
The hotel staff were really friendly was very polite.
We ate in the orchid restaurant & beautiful. Top quality food, beautiful surroundings. We will definitely be using this hotel again ☺

We stayed here for 1 night in July and booked the "Sunday Special Offer". Even though our room was right next to the car park, we heard no sound whatsoever. The room was very clean and the bathroom and facilities were modern. As part of the Sunday Special Offer, we received a £50 voucher, which could be used in the restaurant or bar. At the time of booking the room, we also booked a table at the Orchid Restaurant (a very good meal - I have written a separate review for this). All the staff were welcoming and very friendly and the hotel overall was very well presented. On the whole, I would definitely stop here again and would highly recommend it.

Stayed here for two nights. Walked in and was greeted by helpful happy staff fantastic customer service. My room was spotless even a fan in the room if too hot. The bathroom was just fantastic once again spotless, loved it when I walked in the lights turn on by sensor. Tea and coffee hot chocolate and lovely biscuits in the room free wifi we ate in the popular Orchid restaurant which has a big reputation in Harrogate and I agree with the reviews just stunning. This place is top of my list when I come back for a visit.

Room Tip: Can be a little noisy from the restaurant on a Saturday night that's with the window open hence...

We stayed here the weekend of the Tour if France and paid way above the normal rate to do so. On the plus side the staff were friendly, and the room clean. However the room was tiny and hot - barely enough room for a double bed, the walls paper thin so could hear all movement outside our room and the bed uncomfortable - every time my normal weight husband moved I bounced up in the bed - resulting in restless night. Breakfast was average
