Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our stay at Arden house was a very pleasant one, fabulous breakfast, very impressive variety of fresh fruits. Arden house is on a quite street with easy walking distance in to town. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Jan and Mark are a very friendly hosts, lots of hints of where to eat and places to visit. Will definitively go back.

We initially booked for a two night stay in January, but were prevented by a hospital stay. The owners Jan and Mark were very accommodating and we moved our stay to February. Franklin Road is ideally placed for a visit to Harrogate, and the Arden makes an ideal base. The hotel is bright, clean, and well-appointed. The owners are exceptionally helpful, ideal hosts. The breakfast selection cannot be bettered. We highly recommend this hotel.

My husband and I stayed for two nights at Arden House. Our double bedroom was clean and comfortable, especially the bed, with plenty of light, overlooking the road. Jan and Mike could not have been better hosts: very welcoming , friendly and happy to engage in conversation. The pièce de résistance however was the copious breakfast. The variety of the cooked dishes on offer and of the cold buffet was staggering and the quality of ingredients, especially the wide choice of fresh fruit, dates and yogurt was better than any I have experienced in larger and grander hotels, The cooked breakfast also reached perfection. The dining room was tastefully furnished and very light and airy and the bar lounge very stylish. A staff member at "Betty's" described Arden House as " a hidden gem". How right she was!

Situated on a peaceful suburban street with plenty of car parking, Arden House is warm, clean and quiet and run by a friendly couple. We would definitely return for our next visit to Harrogate. Extensive cooked breakfast with a long menu. Attentive staff :-)

This was our second visit to Arden House, we came again this year partly for my husbands birthday and partly for the Christmas Show in the Conference Centre. We stayed in their other property a few doors down the road in an appartment, which was absolutely lovely, which had everything we needed and more. Mark and Jan do everything they can to make you feel welcome and provide an excellent breakfast. Will definately be back again.

Stayed for 2 nights in November 2023 with my colleagues as we were attending a conference. The hosts were wonderful, the rooms very. Best breakfast ever, the homemade muesli was delicious. The hosts helped us with parking our van and making sure we didn't get a ticket! We will definitely return.

I stayed at Arden House for a week with a small tour group. The house is charming, the rooms were comfortable and clean. It's on a quiet street, a short walking distance to shops, restaurants, and train station. Jan and Mark are great hosts--so warm and friendly. They were extremely helpful with recommendations and arranging local excursions. We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfasts and afternoon tea. Highly recommend Arden House for the great hospitality and would stay here again.

Many thanks for your lovely comments and we are delighted that your Group enjoyed your stay with Arden House of Harrogate. As you discovered, making a direct reservation gives you the best prices either on 01423 509224 or our web page. As a 14 bedroom property, it is always lovely when we change for a few days from being a B&B to a private house for a large Group, and we are a great venue for wedding parties, golfing trips, vintage car rallies (we can get upto 12 vintage vehicles on our car park!) and of course the lovely Knitting retreats. We look forward to your next visit.
