If it's all about the location then this hotel ticks all the boxes. Less than a five minute walk from the station (ignore the google map directions) - exit left out of the main station entrance, turn right down James St then turn left at the end on to Prospect Place and the hotel is on your left. The hotel is an old building so there are creaky floorboards and yes the lift is compact and bijou and does jolt to a rather alarming stop at each floor but for what the room charge is here its absolutely fine. My room was very spacious, rather sparse in furnishings but had a lovely view of the Stray and out over the town to the moors beyond. (unfortunately for me some rather drunken young men decided the Stray was perfect for a game of very loud football at 4am in the morning but that's not the hotel's fault - although I did wonder if the front Stray facing rooms may be noisy of a weekend) It was comfy rather than luxury but this hotel is not promoting itself as luxury. The bathroom was large and yes could do with a refit but it was spotlessly clean and did everything it needed to. Free Wi-Fi is a bonus and for me a hairdryer which is not nailed to the inside of a drawer is also a godsend! Harrogate was gearing up for the Tour de France and many roads were being closed but the hotel did their utmost to minimise the disruption. The staff were friendly, the location superb and I would definitely return. If as another reviewer has mentioned you are expecting the Dorchester you will be disappointed if you want location, tradition and a warm and friendly welcome then it is perfect.
