Powered by AI

The Harrogate Inn boasts a central location favored by many guests for sightseeing, though the limited parking can be a drawback. While the hotel's cleanliness and refurbished communal areas receive positive comments, some guests find the rooms cramped and the decor outdated. Noise is a common concern, with disturbances often reported. Opinions on service are mixed, with commendations for friendliness contrasting with criticisms of professionalism. The amenities, including a revitalized bar, are appreciated, but inconsistencies in room quality and the value of dining options have been noted.

The Harrogate Inn is in the centre of Harrogate across the road from the Turkish baths and exhibition hall. There is self check in or make enquiries by queuing at the bar. This feels like a large pub with rooms.
There is a small lift and wide stairs. Signposting to the rooms is ok.
The room was of adequate size with large comfortable bed and chairs. Water, tea and coffee provided. The shower room was clean and there were enough towels and toiletries. Plenty of hot water.
The downside of the room was the broken windows. The secondary glazing did not close and one window was jammed open. Occupancy was 100% so towels were used to seal the gap. Fortunately there was no noise from the street or ground floor pub.
Parking places are very limited, but there is a multi-storey car park nearby. No nearby free parking. Easy to find due to central location.
I am unlikely to stay here again. Everything was just OK, but dated and nothing special. Staff seemed too busy to be able to offer a service. Not good value for cost this weekend. Prices will vary greatly dependant on the events in town for the day of stay.

This is no longer the Country Living Hotel and is now a very large pub with rooms. The hotel side of things seems to be an afterthought.
The biggest plus for this place is it’s location which is directly opposite the Convention Centre and five minutes walk from the main shopping area.
The room and bed was comfortable. The food in the bar area was good and there was a reasonable choice. There is parking at the rear of the hotel but it is limited and charged at £10 per night. Breakfast was included in our room rate but honestly was not worth it. Breakfast is served in a smaller bar area so not a designated dining area. (There are plenty of coffee shops around where you’d have a pleasanter experience).
The staff are pleasant but are not hotel staff more bar staff. Reception and check-in is at one side of the bar which offers no privacy.

Nice hotel, clean, well presented and pleasant staff. Only stayed for 1 night, the room was a cosy double, and it was cosy but had everything you needed. Although would of appreciated a bottle of water, but tea, coffee etc was provided. Bed was too hard for our preference but that is personal choice. We opted for breakfast, there was adequate choice and what was served was of good quality and worth the extra £5. The location was really good, a short walk and you were in the centre of Harrogate. Although we were unable to park in the carpark, there was adequate parking a very short walk away at a cost of £10 for 24 hours and as we were pre-warned this was not an issue. If in Harrogate I would happily choose to stay again.

Unfortunately I didn’t have a great experience at this hotel and the only good thing that I can say was some of the staff were exceptional, Jonathan, Conor, and Jamie. I mostly dealt with Jonathan at the front desk and he is a real asset to the hotel. Sadly, it appears the hotel isn’t prepared for guests after the refurbishment and they also appeared short staffed.
My first concern was the note I had emailed to them had gone unanswered, leaving me thinking everything was ok but it wasn’t ( they don’t have designated pet free rooms). Jonathan was very thorough and found a room where a dog hadn’t been for weeks, this room would have been ok but it was on the 2nd floor and the lift was out of order ( felt like the 4th floor as there were so many stairs and doors to go through that don’t stay open). Conor one of the food servers was so kind and could see we were struggling with our luggage and he came to our rescue, so kind of him to help us. My poor mother who’s severely asthmatic was struggling with the stairs, so being deeply concerned for her health I quickly realized this room on the second floor was not an option, since the elevator was out of order. I found out it hasn’t been working for FIVE weeks, since they opened. Therefore I was doubtful it would be fixed during our 3 day stay. So I went back to see Jonathan, who understood my mother’s health couldn’t allow us on stay on the second floor without a working elevator. He only had penthouse rooms available on the first floor and he kindly offered to give them to us for the same price. The room was spectacular, but unfortunately as soon as you opened the door, you were hit with an incredibly strong smell of paint. The smell was so intense that even someone without severe asthma could end up wheezing, so as much as this room was beautiful and it was an upgrade, we had to decline and find another hotel. Jonathan was so professional and clearly someone who has been in customer service before as not once did he seem flustered with the curve balls the hotel threw in his direction. He tried his absolute best to adapt to keep us as a guest but unfortunately the hotel just wasn’t ready for arrivals since the refurbishment. Jamie kindly helped my mother and I carry our luggage back to our car so we could find alternate accommodation that had a designated pet free floor as well as working elevators and free of paint fumes.
I can’t express how much I was grateful to Conor, Jamie but most of of Jonathan, The Harrogate Inn is lucky to have such amazing staff, such as them. Thank you again Jonathan for doing everything you could under those circumstances.
I would recommend for future, the hotel could advise the guests prior to arrival that the elevator is out of order and that there would be a lot of stairs to walk up and offer cancellations if guests aren’t able to take the stairs. I would also recommend reading the emails in full that guests sent to you. I was told, oh we only saw that there was a request for twin rooms and we didn’t read the part about pet free rooms. “ it’s our fault, we should have read the whole email from you and replied”.
Thank you

We stayed here for two nights having booked through Travelzoo. The hotel is in a great location and the decor in the public areas is lovely with a lovely outdoor terrace to sit and have drinks, so first impressions were good. However upon arrival we were told the lift was broken and our room was on the 3rd floor. They did manage to move us to a room on the second floor but it was still hard work carrying all the luggage and our dog up 4 flights of stairs. The lift still wasn’t fixed when we left 2 days later. We were pleasantly surprised by the room - nice decor, spacious with a lovely comfy bed, however we had numerous issues during our stay. The safety deposit box wasn’t working, there was no bottled water in the room (only suites get those apparently!), there’s no telephone to contact reception, the maid left the bed unmade and left behind the wine glasses we had taken up. The major problem we had was the water supply in the bathroom - intermittently we had no water from the shower or the sink and the toilet wouldn’t flush. When I discovered I couldn’t have a shower I had to trek down to reception to report it. I was told maintenance would come up but they didn’t arrive. Eventually the water came through but this happened about 8 times over the two nights we were there. I had to go down and use the toilet in the bar as I was so worried ours wouldn’t flush. When we checked out and told them this they asked if we had reported it at the time, I explained I had the first morning. I was told I should have reported it every time (like it was my fault). I replied that I would have mentioned it every time had there been a phone in the room but I wasn’t going to go up and down all those stairs 8 times! BEST TO AVOID ROOM 228 if you don’t want this to happen to you.
The other issue is that you have to pay to park here £10 per day. When you are paying to stay here you shouldn’t have to pay to park - they don’t seem to have any way of knowing if you have as they ask you at checkout if you’ve used the car park.
They are also supposedly dog friendly and you pay extra (£10 per night) to take your dog. We have no problem with this as this is the norm. However what is also the norm is for there to be things such as dog biscuitsowl in the room, but here you get nothing, not even a gravy bone! Not very ‘dog friendly’ in my view. The extra cost for the dog is for extra cleaning apparently and doesn’t run to gravy bones.

Where to start with writing this review as there seemed to be issues with Absolutely everything. The only silver lining is the majority of staff whilst not well trained were very pleasant and friendly.. We understand that all new refurbs are going to have teething issues the Harrogate inn had fundamental issues at every level!!
1. No ventilation very hot rooms with radiators on full on one of the hottest days of the year.
2. Getting hot water from the shower was not easy. Eventually after 5-10 minutes of running the shower warm not hot water did appear. The toilet did not flush well. Overall significant plumbing issues.
3. Our evening meal was poor having a medium steak served raw and no staff attention to put this right in a timely manner
4. Sound issues the rooms were not sound proofed at all so noise from above sounded like baby elephants.
5. Breakfast well this was truly disorganised to the point my husband and many other guests just did not get a cooked breakfast. The self service hot and cold buffet all positioned in a small space creating issues with congestion and flow.
6. There seemed to be very poor leadership and organisation this was most evident at breakfast with the. Large numbers of guests receiving no or little welcome and zero coordination of seating or direction..
7. Cleanliness of the communal areas of the hotel. The stairs to the rooms were clearly not hoovered with us seeing the same dead flies on the communal stairs from Friday to Sunday.

The Harrogate inn is a beautiful prominent building in the centre of Harrogate and should be a true gem. We really hope that the reviews will be taken seriously as the hotel has major potential. The leaders of this establishment need to train their staff rethink the organisation of service and consider setting fundamental standards of quality and service. We are great believers that improvement is possible if you listen and learn from feedback..
We sincerely hope the Harrogate in. Becomes the gem it deserves to be.

All the staff were very pleasant and friendly and we enjoyed the bar areas.

We stayed in room 6 which was a suite on the ground floor. At first it was pretty cool in the room and a slight smell of damp. So we turned the radiators on and the room obviously got warmer, however as the room seemed to dry out during the duration of our stay, the damp smell got worse and by morning, was pretty nauseous and we couldn't wait to leave and get some fresh air.

The bathroom was a decent size but only heated by a towel rail which wasn't up to the task, so the bathroom stayed cold.

The shower was difficult to use as it was restricted by all the equipment for disabled residents (we are not disabled).

The room is ground floor, right on the pavement and passers by on the main road were able to look into the room, so we felt we needed to keep the curtains closed the whole time. There was also an industrial mobile platform vehicle parked the whole time outside of the room.

No complimentary or water to buy was in the room and no fridge that we could find.

All in all we do not feel the room was worth anything near the £265 we paid for the room.

We were attending a conference at the Harrogate Centre, and this hotel was ideally placed to walk easily to the venue. Comfortable room (a bit too warm), great roomy bathroom, good facilities. Staff very friendly and helpful. Lovely bar area. The evening menu was rather pretentious, as most city centre hotels, and portions were not that substantial, but breakfast was buffet style so you could have as much as you wanted. We liked the idea of getting a free drink each if we didn't have the room made up, as it helps the environment, and didn't cause us any issues. Could have done with an information sheet in the room to remind us of meal times etc. We would definitely return to this hotel if we attend another event in Harrogate.

No impressed having to check in at bar with baggage as no reception on arrival.
Payed over £400 for 2 nights stay in a superior double room with the “winter package deal “
Room clean and pleasant but problem with water, cold water would sometimes stop or while having shower pressure would slow or even stop so would have to wait a few minutes to start up again before finishing shower
Couldn’t book any tables for evening meals even though we had package deal. Most nights tables occupied from people walking in off street and no priority for guests. Food on one night served cold and had to send back, not value for money. Not enough staff as empty tables not cleaned for other customers.
For 4star hotel wasn’t impressed for what we payed

Hotel was easy to find from the Ripon road and the turn to the car park is opposite convention centre. Great location, and the bar has seating outside looking over fresh lansdcaping and pretty window boxes and hanging baskets.

This is a quirky place, very much an inn - bar with bedrooms rather than a hotel. Reading previous reviews we knew reception was located in the bar, but there is a designated area at the back of the bar and we were quickly issued our keys and paperwork. It was busy with Sunday lunches and did make us want to eat there, also a livelier welcome than a quiet reception.

The room was very pleasant, I liked the moody grey feature wall and the hallway decor had a gentleman’s club look, with different chairs arranged along the hallway breaking up the space.

Wi-do was easy to connect to in the room and tea and coffe facilities had a better selection than other places we’ve stayed.

Breakfast takes place in the bar with plenty of room, great choice of cooked and continental breakfast including vegetarian options. Helpful staff clearing tables.

We ate dinner in The Barking George and it was really nice, enough options to keep you interested. My noodles were slightly over cooked but the flavours in the dish more than made up for this, whilst my partner said his halibut was beautifully cooked and he enjoyed the new potatoes.

We have been going to Harrogate at least once a year for 15 years, and have stayed all over, however we really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely plan on staying at this hotel again.
