Quiet, comfortable room, good bathroom with nice shower, all clean and neat. Old Victorian-style hotel with atmosphere with spacious staterooms. Great breakfast included. Economically priced for its quality. Fast, no fuss checkin/out. Good free parking, and well located for access to Harrogate and villages. Has one or two quirky features (what hotel doesn't?), but have stayed there twice and will probably do so again when visiting Harrogate.

Although the room was clean, it was very tired - and not good value. The service in the breakfast room was very slow. The hotel was well located for the town centre and the reception staff were very pleasant.

Easy car parking, good location for all routes, large very quiet and comfortable room, large, clean bathroom, good water pressure. Breakfast included was great, full english with variety of sides, great service. There were a few minuses: Not much food except sandwiches outside dining room hours in the evening, too few teabags and milk in room, shower hose had troublesome kink that cut water pressure. But on the whole, great place, good Harrogate Victorian northern wealth ambience, big, spacious, comfortable, good value, will stay there again.

Friendly character hotel

Stayed a few nights with teenager to visit the local area. Good parking. Very polite and welcoming staff. Clean and comfortable room. Good selection of breakfast, ordered pancakes which were nice. Free WiFi in the room would have been a bonus.

Welcoming and convenient

Pros: The staff were welcoming ad professional, the building itself is very fine, and it is very well located.
Cons: It seems such a small thing... but we didn't get a really good cup of tea all weekend! One day for breakfast it was really weak, the next very strong!
Location: Well located within easy walking distance of the town centre and all facilities
We were greeted by a very friendly and professional receptionist, and indeed all the staff we encountered over the weekend were excellent. The bedroom was plain but comfortable and the bathroom well appointed with modern fittings. The hotel itself has a rather grand foyer and an impressive dining room, which are all nicely presented. The age of the hotel does show a little though in the creakiness of some of the floors and the thinness of some of the walls (not a problem as long as you have considerate neighbours, which we did!). On Easter weekend, the visitors seemed skewed to a somewhat older demographic, with a lot of retirees, which added to the slightly 'old-fashioned' charm. However, there were also some younger couples and families, and our 12-year-old was made to feel very welcome.
