We stayed as a family of 6 in May 2011 for two nights to attend a family wedding.
We booked the family suite to share with our 12 year old which was fine but would be a squeeze with two older children. Might be OK if you had little ones. Our two older sons shared a twin and my sister in law had a single which turned out to be a lovely double room.
The rooms weren't huge but they were well decorated and very comfortable. The beds were great with very good linen. The shower rooms weren't huge but were perfectly serviceable. Everything was clean.
The breakfasts were fantastic. Great full English or Continental - both were really nice, along with cereals, fruit, juice etc and plenty of tea or coffee. The ladies serving were really nice.
The guest house is opposite beautiful gardens and is close to everything you'd want to see in Harrogate.
I was surprised at some of the reviews. There are stairs, obviously, because it's not a bungalow. If anything let it down it would be the lounge area which could be spruced up a little. There was also a slightly doggy smell as we entered.
We did have a slight haggle over the bill as they seemed to have forgotten that we'd paid a sizeable deposit. This was no problem and was sorted out amicably.
If we were to return to Harrogate I would definitely stay here again.
