We had an overnight stay here and enjoyed it very much, the owners were away but we were looked after very well by the managers. The room was very spacious with a double and single bed and lovely and warm. The bathroom was nice and modern with some nice toiletries and good towels. There is a small private car park which was great, we were early but Karen had the room ready so let us in which was fantastic after travelling and gave us fresh milk for a nice cuppa. The breakfast was very nice, plenty of it and more if you wanted it, all cooked fresh to order, We would return if visiting Harrogate again.

Room Tip: Th family room we had was on the ground floor which if you have prams would be helpful.

I stayed at the Fountains as part of a move I am making to the Harrogate area, having already stayed at two hotels in the town. This was a much more pleasant experience - nice big room, well decorated, comfortable bed and friendly help from the owners. Handy for restaurants etc, good parking, thoroughly recommend it !

Central guesthouse, only 2 mins from Conference Centre and central shops/retaurants in harrogate.
Very accommodating and helpful staff in lovely, comforting and clean guest house. Rooms were nicely furnished and had lovely views from the windows (park on one side of guest house), tea and coffee facilities in the room, with bottled wated supplied, also iron/ironing board, hairdryer in room.
Breakfast was lovely - good assortment of cereals/fresh fruit/yoghurts and choice of full english, porridge, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon - all cooked beautifully and quickly. Fresh juice, tea and coffee always available.
The owners were very helpful, with a good local knowledge and I would't hesitate to recommend this guest house.

Stayed at this lovely guesthouse on the 1st November for two nights.
Myself and two colleagues were attending a conference at the convention centre.
I had booked a single room and my colleagues had a twin room.
We had a great welcome from the owner on arrival and were promptly booked in. He gave us directions to the many eating places Harrogate has to offer.
My single room was small but very comfortable. The shower room was in the bedroom and was separated by a curtain, but there was very good use of the space available. The room was spotlessly clean. The only complaint was that the door wasn't a tight fit and let the light from the landing in to the room, but I rectified this by putting a cushion at the bottom of the door.
The breakfast was fantastic. Lovely choice of cereals and fruit. The scrambled eggs were smashing.
The location of this guesthouse is perfect. Three minutes from the convention centre and another 2 minutes further to get to the shops.
This property wasn't on the accomodation list for our conference and I'm quite glad as I think we did very well to find it and wouldn't have wanted to miss out.
Will definately stay again but probably book a double room next time.

Great family run business in a great location. We would definitely come here again.

What a refreshing change to see a wide range of food available at breakfast too. Cooked well and fresh local produce. The only we could say let our stay down and only ever so slightly, was the temperature of the shower, and the annoying sensor on the bathroom light.

This said, we would definitely go back

Situated on the Kings Road only a 5 minute walk to the convention centre & Harrogate town centre, made this a perfect location. Inclusive parking & WiFi and the other reviews made me book the Fountains, and I was please I did. Very friendly owners, the rooms are well presented and very comfortable. Would definately recommend.
