I booked this hotel as I had to stay in Harrogate on business for two nights and the rooms looked lovely on the hotel's website. I got quite a good deal and paid slightly extra to get a double room to have a bit more space, even though I was travelling on my own.
The location of the hotel is great - 5 minutes walk from the centre of Harrogate. Harrowgate itself is a beautiful town full of character.
The hotel lobby is lovely - very modern and contemporary. Perhaps this is why when I entered my room I was very disappointed. I stayed in room 313 - one of the smallest double rooms I have stayed in with less than one foot from the end of the bed to the wardrobes! The wall paint was very patchy and marked and the woodwork very chipped and tired. There were several stains on the carpet and on the lounge chair - far from 4 star. The room was also extremely hot, even with the window open (perhaps because it was on the top floor). Views were very limited as half the window was obscured by a stone feature on the roof. There was a dressing table and mirror but no seat. The bathroom was fine but the bath extremely shallow. The hotel did supply Molton Brown toiletries which was lovely. The towels were also fluffy and very fresh and white.
One thing that I was very impressed with was the room service continental breakfast - which could be ordered at no extra cost. The staff were also all extremely friendly.
All in all a mixed experience. I did ask the girl at check-out if the rooms on the first and second floors were bigger/nicer but she didn't know as she had newly started working at the hotel.
