“Unexpected excellence!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

We booked this fantastic B&B just the night before we visited Harrogate. Our weekend away was totally spur of the moment simply to visit our favourite restaurant LeD2. I describe the review as unexpected excellence as there were no photos of Murray House on any of the .com booking sites, so I anticipated a building and room far below what we were met with.
Murray House is beautiful, and our room was fantastic value for money. Large, modern and tastfefully decorated with a very comfy bed.
Tracie was an excellent host - nothing was too much trouble, including her help when we had a delay getting there. A friendly service and welcome.
We're regular visitors to Harrogate and will be returning to Murray House next time for sure. Great location, close to everything.
If I could change anything, it'd be that we could've had an extra night there!
Thanks Tracie.

Booked a last minute night away in Harrogate for my boyfrioends birthday. We had never been before so we took pot luck really. We found the hosts welcoming, rooms clean, great showers and plenty of choice at breakfast.

To top it off there is free parking permits and just minutes from the town centre what more could you ask for,

We would just like to thank you both for your hospitality. The guest house was amazing and the breakfast superb. There was enough to choose from and service was prompt. We had the big breakfast, everything cooked to perfection. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have nothing but great things to say about Murray House! Thanks for everything. One other thing to mention, the shower in the room was unbelievable! Best power shower I've ever used! :)
 
We will certainly try and stay with you guys again next time we visit Harrogate, which will hopefully be in the not too distant future!

I recently stayed in Murray House and was very pleased with the service. The room was clean & well proportioned. Breakfast was delicious & it was nice to a menu rather just a set breakfast.
There was some confusion on my part, I hadn't realised the latest check in was 7:30pm & I arrived much later. However, I received a call & helpful arrangements were made to ensure I could still access my room despite this. Please note the last check in time though before booking!

All in all a lovely stay & recommended.

I was booked into this B&B for a conference, and it was a fantastic choice. It is a lovely B&B, I stayed in room #7 which was bright and airy, clean and plenty of space. It was a bit of a trek with a suitcase up the two floors, but I didn't have to carry it! It was very kindly carried for me :) Very comfortable bed, great choice of breakfast, and really accessible for the conference centre and Majestic Hotel. I'd really recommend it as a place to stay in Harrogate.

Room Tip: I was in room 7 which was on the 2nd floor, facing the garden. It was bright and sunny.

I booked this B&B purely for its proximity to Harrogate Theatre on Oxford Street & because of previous Tripadvisor comments. You would be hard-pressed to find more helpful & hospitable hosts, the rooms are spotless, the breakfasts faultless, the shower powerful & hot and the value beats every comparable B&B in York by miles. Really looking forward to our next stay there & would gladly recommend it to anyone.
Also for anyone on longer stays; unlike most town centre B&Bs, there is plenty of space for luggage.
Top marks all round! It was a home from home. If you're staying in Harrogate you won't regret booking Murray House.

Stayed at the Murray House on the first weekend in March 2012. A lovely hotel. Tracy called me the day before checking in.. to double check our arrival time and make sure we knew to use the hotel address as satnavs didnt always recognise the postcode. We stayed in Room 3- Kindsize Superior at the front of the house. The room was lovely, immaculately clean and comfortable. We didnt experience any noise despite being at the front. The choice of breakfast was great, with a buffet bar for cerealand /fruits as well as a hot breakfast menu. The hotel is a very short walk away from shops and nightlife in Harrogate, and parking permits were provided in the room price.
All in all we wanted a relaxing weekend away and thats exactly what we got. Would highly recommend this hotel to all.
