    The price of the room was great, and the food in the restaurant was fantastic.

    The room I had was lovely but there was noise from the restuarant/bar underneath and I had to ask reception when the music would stop. I dont think the music was loud, it was just the location of the room in relation to the exit I think. No probs after that.

    The staff was exceptionally helpful.

    Breakfast was not good and the food prices for what you received were very high.

    Very nice room and breakfast

    When we arrived the receptionist was very rude and miserable infact to the point I was going to complain. However when we went back to reception the second time to get the key to our room the other lady who I think was maybe of a more senior level was very helpful and upgraded our room as she said she never allocated room 17 unless it was the only one available But again the receptionist made it clear she was not happy with this and was reluctant to upgrade.

    We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel! We stayed in the Windsor suite which was fantastic. The location was great, only a couple of minutes walk to Harrogate international conference centre wher we went to see a show! Would highly recommend this hotel.

    we found it nosy with the adjacent rooms, ie next door TV to loud and people talking.

    The appearance of the building was to my liking and in a good location. The Windsor Suite was amazing and would definately recommend. The red wine was nice by the glass from the bar and reasonably priced.

    Having to get daily parking permits for your vehicle, instead of one for the duration of your stay.

    Conveniently situated for Harrogate and surrounding areas. Reasonably quiet location.

    Bedroom furniture looked tired and scruffy, I'm not into this "stressed" look or whatever else you call it. Bedside lamps were left on each day by cleaners, not much point when it is still daylight when returning later in the day and not very green. Service at breakfast was poor - cooked dishes arrived before cereals were finished, plates were not cleared as courses finished and no offer of coffee re-fills.

    Near the venue I was working at.

    Small single room, extremely hot. The window was painted up. The only opening window was two feet square in the bathroom. They did move me to another room on the last night because the lock on my door broke. Generally not a good experience, but would stay again following their apologies.

    the mini suite was lovely, 4 poster, large room. the building was really old,victorian stone with lots of character. next time we'll stay in the windsor suite. we had a peek in, it looks fab'. already sorting out a date to go and taking friends and family.

    the shower let them down, not much power, and a bit of mold around the tiles. needs better extaction. the resteraunt wasnt up to our standards, we'll eat elsewhere next time

    Fantastic welcoming staff - arrived to find a complementary bottle of champagne as it was my husband's 50th birthday, first class spotlessly clean suite with luxurious decor, excellent food and great location!

    The staff were very attentive, friendly, and could not do more for you! Food was expensive, but worth every penny!!

    The only thing I will criticise, is the beautiful duck down quilts, were incredibly warm for summer months.

    Very helpful, friendly staff. The room was fantastic. On-site parking is great to have so close to the centre of Harrogate.

    The Internet access was atrocious. Poor WiFi and kept dropping out. This is the only thing that would prevent me booking again
