5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Stayed at The Grafton with my daughter last weekend for her birthday. Our room (7) was located at the front of the house and was tastefully appointed and equipped with all necessities. We liked the large mugs for our morning cuppa. The towels were big and fluffy and the walk in shower fab. Breakfast was superb, lots of choice and served in a lovely light sunny breakfast room. My daughter left her Internet booster behind and the owners posted it back to her first class - a big Thank you to The Grafton. If you want to stay in a beautiful Edwardian house close to the town (5 mins walk away) stay here.

Stayed October 2012, traveled with family

We chose to stay at the Grafton after seeing reviews that highly recommended it whilst also taking note of the modern decor, central location and reasonable price.

Staying in a Double Superior room our two nights were just great and the room, especially the bed and bathroom was extremely comfortable and well kept.

Breakfast was fantastic and staff very obliging - helpful when needed but essentially left you to it.

Would definitely return and recommend to anyone looking to stay in Harrogate!!

Great decor, plush and modern more like a boutique hotel.
Very clean, lovely large walk in shower in one of the rooms we booked and great cosy sofa in the other. Booked as a girls family trip with ages ranging from 32-82 and all were happy!
Good breakfast, lots of choice and very efficient friendly service, myself and my daughter have some food intolerances and were looked after well too.
Would recommend without hesitation.

modern decor, very clean and tidy, cannot fault apart from the room is smaller than imagined but this was not really an issue, very classy place to stay and easy walking distance from city centre.
Food was excellent and parking outside with permit was easy. Would use again.

My wife found the Grafton on a web site after looking for somewhere to get away and de-stress for a couple of days. Its situated in a very quiet part of Harrogate within a 10 minute walk of the town centre. Room was very nice with large king size bed, beautifully decorated with en-suite, flat screen TV, hot drink facilities and plenty of large fluffy towels. Very comfotable so slept very well. Breakfast was superb and a lot better than I have had in big chain hotels at a lot higher price. Will definitely be going back again to use as a base to see more of North Yorkshire. Thanks to the owners and staff.

Room Tip: Any room will be nice at the Grafton.

We have stayed in this Guest House a number of times, and our most recent visit was as good as all the others have been. On this occasion we had a superior double room, lovely large room with comfortable super king bed and large sitting area. As always, the room was very clean and fresh. The breakfast was excellent, with hot items cooked to order. I have always found the staff friendly and helpful.
