Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Business traveller
Liked: Staff & service
Rooms ok for one person. Lovely balcony not that it was used with it being so cold. Furniture very dated and would be useful to have a desk and chair to work at. Toilet very close to the radiator and burnt my legs a couple of times. Very quiet but could do with updating. Food was good on the evening and very quick to serve. Breakfast was ok, not much choice available for someone who doesn’t want cooked breakfast. I would say it was ok for one night but wouldn’t stay any longer

It was a great stay. Food excellent. Beautiful location at Bishop Thornton just outside Harrogate. Terrible mattress! Small bed for two people! Very friendly and helpful and professional customer service.

Excellent room, friendly staff, top class food
Really excellent. Room standard was very good, clean tidy and comfortable. Plenty of room, facilities great. Plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits. The food in the hotel though was so, so good. Breakfast was good but the evening meals were first class. Can’t recommend this highly enough.
