My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in October 2016. We stayed in room 5 which was a lovely large room, with one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! Breakfast was very good with a nice selection of cereals, fruit and cooked options. My partner particularly enjoyed his kippers! Service during breakfast was good and...

I have to agree with others, this room at the back of the hotel was although clean, smelt of damp, I was cold and was assured when asked at reception that the heating was on a timer and would be on at 6pm, well it wasn't and even though the smell of the damp was awful it was too cold...

Got a small room in the small building at the back of the houses (didn't know that the room is not in the house shown in the advertisement). Very over priced. No breakfast provided, you need to make an additional payment for the breakfast. No heater and warm water and rainy in lower-than -12-degree-celsius day. Asked the owner (or a...

We stayed for one night, the room was cramped and the toilet was so small you had to sit sideways !! The welcome was lackluster and we had to wait outside for an answer as the main door was locked, we arrived at around 2pm so this was a bit unusual. We would be hard pressed to find many positives,...

I visited here because I wanted a weekend away on my own and planned to visit the Yorkshire Wildlife Park and Nidderdale Llamas so needed somewhere with good transport links. On the morning before I arrived, I realised I needed an earlier checkout time, and after sending a message through booking.com, I received a response within minutes from the owner...

The room was very nice and pretty clean but no proper shower just a hand held attachment. Stayed a few years ago with a couple who's partner is well known this was a cue for the husband to leave cooking the breakfasts and come and be 'funny' whilst we're all trying to eat our breakfasts quietly.....he was excruciating, even without...

Thank you for your review we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Breakfast is now an option for those who want it. Some guests would rather have a bit longer in bed and like the fact you dont have to pay for something you dont have. We are very pleased with our new Super King beds and are pleased you...

my room was in a small "hut" not directly in the hotel, the room was very cold, they turned off the heating the whole day, the owner was not really friendly, I think she only likes British guest, Harrogate itself is perfect

How odd that you waited untill you left to say you were cold. And not only that but 4 months after your stay. Actually the heating was definately on in April in every room, even the Stable Cottages. I do not keep the heating on all day as most guests do choose to see Harrogate during the day. Had you...
