Fantastic value for money.
Large car park, efficient check-in. Good sized double room with large bay window. Woken by banging windows during the night but once reported these were closed. On the whole slept really well. The hotel is very positioned to enjoy Harrogate centre.

Disappointed weekend visitor.
A hotel living on it's past reputation. Fine features but dated, needs a good upgrade. On Fri our room was freezing on arrival & no hot water for shower before venturing out. Reported to reception, nothing happened. Only single beds even though double booked. Terrible nights sleep, kept waking up cold. Sat morning room a little warmer, but tepid water for a shower. Asked reception for blankets which arrived. Water slightly warmer for evening shower. Room appeared warmer. Better nights sleep with blankets with room getting up to temp on Sun, and, amazingly hot water for shower. The bathroom is in a poor condition. Lady on reception Fri & Sat curt to say the least, very unfriendly. Breakfast very, very good, hot & tasty with brilliant staff. A credit to the hotel, couldn't do enough for you.

Exactly what you pay for
Cheap and cheerful. Could do with being updated but I can imagine it would cost and absolute fortune. Close to town and great parking so can’t complain
