“Very close to Harrogate centre”
Reviewed 16 October 2011

A very good guest house close to Harrogate town center. Easy car parking. Twin room very good but unfortunately too many stairs to climb - fine for the fit.

We picked this B & B based on the trip advisor reports. What a great choice!!
We do not usually try B&B's but in Harrogate this is the better option. It was easy to find and very close to the centre - about 5 minutes walk for us. Parking was not a problem. One tip however, leave someone in the car whilst you check in and get your permit. When we came back he was trying to book our car. It was close.
We had room 1 which was great. It was ultra clean and just a perfect room. Loads of tea/coffee/biscuits and plenty of room. Breakfast in the morning was cooked to order and was very good.
There's little more we can add. It was a perfect stay in a perfect place and fully deserves a top rating on Trip Advisor.

Room Tip: Room 1 was great

Reviewed 17 June 2011

I booked this place based on a solid amount of great reviews- I was not disappointed. The Dales is a more traditional B&B but nonetheless charming and very well presented. The building itself is a large townhouse (3 stories?) with a large communal lounge and a few rooms on each floor.

It is located on a quiet residential street opposite the Valley Gardens/ Park which is well worth a walk through for the incredibly varied and well maintained plants.

I was greeted by the extremely pleasant proprietor (I apologise, I don't know her name), where I was given a brief tour and shown to my room. The room was a nice mix of old style (Large with high ceilings and traditional features) with clean tidy and modern decor. Everything was extremely clean with all the facilities that you need - Flat screen modern TV, ensuite WC & shower (very new), super comfy bed and a great nights sleep.

Parking is outside the property on the road but there was ample spaces nearby and you would require a permit (provided free by B&B) if you are parking between 9am-6pm.

Breakfast I might add, was some of the finest scrambled eggs I have ever eaten. I would definately return as while this B&B was not 'showing off' with a theme or fancy twists it's owners clearly have gotten this place just right.

Room Tip: Great pub food at the Old Bell Tavern (5 min walk)

We spent 11 nights at the Dales during a recent visit to Harrogate. The owners could not have been nicer. There was always someone there to help with questions or requests. The breakfasts were delicious, our large room overlooked the Gardens and it was an easy walk to the center of town, as well as the train station. Perfect place for us to stay.

Room Tip: Our room (no 3) was lovely.
