“Simply the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2010

We have been visiting Harrogate for many years and always go up twice a year and stay at Franklin View it really is the best. From the minute you arrive until you leave Jen who owns the B & B makes you very welcome nothing is too much trouble. The whole place is so clean and breakfasts are to die for (always have to go on diet when I leave there) there is a good choice so whatever your preference Jen will caterer for you. It is central to go out to different places during the day and at night it is only a 5min walk to the town centre. Please give it a try you won't be disppointed. Cant wait until Easter when we will be back there

This is one of the best B&Bs I've stayed in - the room was very well equipped, furnished and clean and the breakfast was lovely. Jennifer, the owner, is very friendly and solicitous, always keen to hear about our various adventures in Harrrogate and the locality + ready to recommend places if we were at a loss for somewhere to go.

I'd definitely go back as there's also lots to see and do in North Yorkshire and this is a very good base from which to start.

The cleanliness was outstanding; the hostess warm and friendly, the decor of the bedroom demonstrated a fine eye for detail, the food was plentiful and tasty. It is a small hotel with just three bedrooms, but very well appointed and a small dining room to match. Good value for money.

This guest house was excellent from the minute you arrived and were greeted by Jennifer. The whole house was spottlesly clean and fresh . The room we stayed in (Caerngorn) was cosy with a hotel feel to it ,meaning you didnt feel like you were staying in someones house or that you were being put up in the spare room.The room was tastefully furnished to a high standard with thoughtful finishing touches and plenty of tea/coffee. The breakfast again was of the best quality made with local produce and cooked to perfection. My husband and I will definately visit Harrogate again and wouldnt hesitate in booking The Franklin View Guest House again.

We had an excellent 3-night stay here, and Jennifer made us feel very welcome. The house is homely and well-furnished and the rooms are comfortable very well-appointed - chocolate biscuits, and a fridge on the landing, were a pleasant surprise. Breakfast was wonderful - what perfect eggs! A very quite location, but only 5-10 minutes from the town attractions.

A warm welcome from Jenny and one look at our lovely room made us realise we had made the right choice in staying at Franklin View. Everything was spotlessly clean, with beautiful bedding and a most comfortable bed! The quality of decor and furniture was excellent and in our opinion we would give it a Gold rating. Jenny is a good cook and breakfast was served in a lovely dining room overlooking the garden, the choice was extensive and the quality of food supurb. Jenny's aim is to make your stay a pleasant one and this she certainly achieves in all area's. A short walk took us into Harrogate and all it has to offer.

We visited Franklin View on Valentines weekend and it is an absolute gem! Jennifer the owner is lovely, nothing is too much trouble. The room was spotless and decorated to a very high standard. Breakfast was made with top quality produce and as much tea, coffee and toast as we could manage. I would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone and I am really fussy!! Within walking distance of the town centre and Betty's tea room (which we visited and was worth the expense!). Parking available on the driveway - every requirement met. Thanks Jennifer for a great weekend!
