I was unable to get a room near York due to the races so I decided to check out Harrogate. After reading several reviews I booked two rooms via Expedia.com. My mom was with my husband and I and she had never had a B&B experience. When we arrived we found that the booking engine had secured only two single rooms when I had secured a double and a single...the owner, Beverly, was quick to accomadate us even though there was a problem with the reservation. Yes, the rooms are small and so are the en-suites. However, they are clean and comfortable. The breakfast was the BEST I have ever had at a B&B. Hot, fresh, and generous. I would definitely stay again. As for my Mom....she is hooked on the B&B concept.

My husband and I stayed 1 nite for my birthday. The location is great! Less than a ten minute walk to the centre.Our room was very clean and spacious with lots of cupboard space and an en suite.Had a very good nights sleep in a very comfy bed! The breakfast was lush! There was a buffet breakfast offering cereals,fruit and yogurts and toast.we had a full English which was very tasty and a big pot of tea! We had a really pleasant stay here and thought it was excellent value for money and would defiantly stay here again!

Well just reurned from a 2 night stay29/07/12 at this hotel/ B&B , what a lovely place .After we eventually found the front road to this ( because Google and sat nav took us around the back of hotel) we were greeted by Bev who is a lovely host, she gave us parking permits so we could park outside on the road which was very handy.Bev showed us around the place which was lovely and clean, she also gave us a map which had discount vouchers on to use in many restaurants. The rooms were lovely and clean and yes they had sink in the room but this was not a problem for us. The breakfasts were freshly cooked to order and were delicious , they had everything from Yougurt, fresh fruit, cereal and the orange juice was lovely .Would stay there again . Thank you Bev

I Stayed here with my husband for one night as we were visiting the exhibition centre. The location was only a short walk from the centre (10 minutes) and was ideally situated to explore locally.
On arrival we couldn't park on the car park as it was full but could park outside on the road with a daily permit which Bev gave us on check in.
Our room was small but adequate and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was made to order and was delicious with lots of choice.
Will definitely book again next time we visit Harrogate. Bev is a very friendly host and made us feel very welcome in her hotel!

Stayed here overnight to attend a friend's wedding. The room, as some other reviewers have noted, was on the small side, but there was certainly plenty of space for luggage, ample cupboard space should you need to use it, and an adequate bathroom containing shower and toilet (the sink was in the room itself).

Service at the Arden was first-rate: staff were friendly, helpful and polite. Breakfast and a well-stocked honesty bar were both superb too. Slept incredibly well. Would highly recommend!

We (12 girls) stayed June 2012 for my hen do weekend in Harrogate. From the start Beverley was very friendly and professional taking my initial enquiry and helped me immensely. The hotel itself was decorated lovely and all the rooms were nice - especially the one i stayed in with the four poster! Beverley allowed us to use the communal bar area on both nights for drinks and a meeting point for my guests and went above and beyond the norm to help us with this. Breakfast was lovely and lots of choice. Thanks again Beverly to you and your team - it was a fantastic stay with you - if i ever find myself in Harrogate with somewhere to stay i know where m,y first point of call will be :)

Room Tip: the four poster! Can't remember room number sorry!

Our twin room was not spacious but fine for a few nights. It's a good clean b&b run by quality people. Recommended.
