“Lovely staff, shame that the hotel is a little tired”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

I think it is fair to say that this place has seen better days, although I'm sure it was pretty impressive in the past. However, while it could probably do with a lick of paint, the hotel certainly makes the most of its strengths - mainly its incredible, friendly staff. We arrived late on Friday night for our weekend stay and it was great to be met by a welcoming smiling face, who greeted us by name (as the last guests to check in). The receptionist was also great in helping us to plan our weekend activities as well as advising us to keep an eye out for an elusive car parking spot.

The room itself was just what we needed for a weekend break, the beds were comfy and the tea and coffee was very well stocked and replenished. The cleaning staff were also very friendly when we saw them as we walked through the hotel.

Breakfast provided a great selection and was again manned by staff who could not do enough to help us.

This hotel was well worth the reduced price we paid - fab location, comfortable if slightly tired room, excellent staff and great food - what more could you wish for in a central hotel?!

'The Yorkshire Hotel' employs some of the friendliest staff in the business and high-quality customer service is embedded in every part of its operation.

We bought the deal on LivingSocial for 2 nights' accommodation with breakfast and when we arrived on Friday night, we were warmly welcomed by the hotel's reception staff who seemed genuinely happy to help.

The room, whilst a little outdated (particularly the bathroom) was clean and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and enabled us both to have a very good sleep.

The breakfast buffet was constantly being replenished and it was clear that pride was taken in the food being served. The friendly waiting staff couldn't have done more to help.

Even the hotel's cleaning staff were keen to engage in friendly but unobtrusive chat about nice things to do in the town.

I intend to recommend the hotel to friends and family and will be making a return in the future.

Found the offeron the internet.Two night break for two @£99 for B&B
Lovely big room with large en-suite.Excellent full English buffet breakfast or
Continental if preferred.Every thing spotlessly clean with two sets of towels every day.The staff very pleasant and helpful.Sufficient car parking space atthe front of the hotel for the sole use of clients.May be a little sparce during a very biusy time.
The hotel is idealy sited for access to shops and resteraunts and would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Just spent 2 nights here with my partner . The staff very polite and helpful. Room size excellent , a little tired in places , but has not spoiled our stay . Breakfast very good , buffet style , help yourself , plenty of choices and kept well stocked . Ideally located in the centre of Harrogate and only a short stroll away all amenities . Requested a front facing room which was lovely overlooking the park opposite . Free wi-fi a bonus and also free parking ( don't forget to ask for your permit at reception ) .
All in all an excellent couple of days away .
Also a visit to the Turkish Baths is must , spent 3.5 hours there , very relaxing . And as The Black Sheep Brewery is only 20 miles away would have been rude not to pop along there too .

My Husband and I stayed two nights recently and found the staff to be polite, courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. The Service we received at check in and breakfast was excellent. Yes the rooms and décor are a little dated, but this is a historic building and this all adds to the character of the place, although I would suggest an overhaul of the Ladies toilets near the bar which need a little TLC. Our room was bright, airy and the bathroom large and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. Our breakfast was good - although fresh rather than tinned mushrooms would have been nice, and there was little choice of pastries. We didn't have other food there but on inspecting the menu the price for Panini's were actually cheaper than I paid in a café in town, and the drinks were reasonably priced for a Hotel. The only addition I would like to see is nicer biscuits on the tea tray - not the freebies you can get with coffee in any old coffee house! The location could not be better and the view from our bedroom was just lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely visit this lovely Hotel and beautiful town again.

Room Tip: we asked for an upgrade on our room for £20 and got a lovely view to the gardens and hills

This is one of those landmark Victorian hotels that add such character to our towns and cities. It is always going to be difficult to bring hotels like this up to luxury standards without spending the sort of money that makes the finished product beyond the pocket of all but the most wealthy.

It is however a pleasant place to stay with lots of character offering a reasonable standard that travellers expect.

I had booked a single room online and they were happy to give me a small double at no extra charge.

The breakfast - cheaper if you pre-order - is reasonable and offers smoked haddock and kippers, something that is getting increasingly rare. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again if in the area.
