I stayed for 1 night with colleagues on our way to AFC Harrogate. Check I was smooth, the hotel is very nicely presented and my room was lovely. I really appreciated a bath as well as a shower as a relaxing soak after our 5 hour drive was much needed. Based on the experience of a colleague, we had booked...

Whilst staff are trying their best this is what let it down....had to repeatedly ask for drinks from the bar and the tea came twenty minutes after they...

If you like quaint and old fashioned this is the place for you. No air conditioning, so it can get a little warm in the rooms. View from the bedroom would have looked like a prison exercise yard if it wasn't for the roof covering the quad. Stayed for nearly two weeks, but during this time they didn't manage to...

Booked on their own website for a great price and got a cream tea, evening meal and breakfast thrown in for a great price. Arrived early and could check in early. Had a lovely cream tea booked in the bar. The room was nice, on the third floor at the back, without a view. Adequate for what we wanted. Hairdryer...

Great location in the heart of Harrogate. Yes this hotel was once very grand and is now a little tired. Our stay was only for one night, & the price we paid was a bargain with an Internet deal. However we experienced extreme different levels of service during our stay. Greeting at reception was very welcoming. We visited the bar...
