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.

We’ve just returned home after a two night stay. Mark, Rob and Sue made sure that our stay was fantastic!
Great free car parking off road and managed to get our room slightly earlier too.
Great digital locks on the front door and our room set to our own memorable code meant no keys.
Breakfast was brilliant too, very well set up for social distancing. A good selection of individually portioned cereals, yogurt, and fruit juice, coffee or tea and a cooked breakfast made to order.
Overall a great place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My husband and I throughly enjoyed our stay at the guesthouse. The owners were kind enough to let us check in early as our room was already ready. Upon entering the guesthouse was immaculately clean, with a welcoming lounge area. Our room was also very well presented with a stunning view from the huge bay window, and the most luxurious en-suite. We were also impressed to see our room had an Alexa, and with a really good choice of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits. Although we had only paid for a standard room we had a huge super king bed, that was incredibly comfortable. The next morning at breakfast we were welcomed and instantly made to feel at home. The breakfast was well cooked and obviously made using high quality ingredients. The tea and coffee was plentiful, and service was very attentive. We were sad to leave, our visit was perfect. We will definitely recommend and be visiting again in the future. Thanks again, Daryl and Kerry Smith.

We had a lovely stay.
The owner contacted me before re entry to the hotel and room. Car parking was easy and FREE. There's a small hotel car park, but also plenty of on street parking and permits available from the foyer.
The room was clean and had a modern en suite.
Plenty of tea,coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits. Fresh milk was fetched from a fridge downstairs in flasks, so no fiddling around with plastic UHT milk containers , more convenient and better for the environment.
Breakfast was lovely, quick and efficient service, plenty of tea, coffee and toast.
The staff were friendly and interested in our stay and informative about places to visit nearby.

We stayed here as a group of 5 taking a cycling trip. The guesthouse is clean, well located and run by a very friendly team of staff. Our rooms were warm, comfortable and with very good showers!

Breakfast was served everyday at the time we requested and was perfect for a day our in the Yorkshire hills.

The location was ideal for access into Harrogate for restaurants and cafes - of which the town has plenty and we were recommended some excellent ones by Mark @harrogatestays.

We’ll definitely be back to stay again!!

Fountains Guest House is part of Harrogate stays, -we found the hotel when it came up on a search on bookings .com for central hotels in Harrogate

It was a perfect place for us to stay with adult family for 2 nights in Harrogate and is a 10 minute stroll into town
We had 3 rooms all very comfy and clean and spacious
Breakfast was included which was excellent.

Staff all very friendly and helpful

Small car park for about 5 cars but you can easily park outside ,very safe area.

I booked my trip very last minute and the contact and instructions were excellent, with even a suggestion for a lovely walk through Valley Gardens to RHS Harlow Carr. The guest house was in an excellent location, less than 10 minutes walk into town and there was free parking on site or via parking permit. My room was spotless, everything was excellent quality and the attention to detail was superb, one of my favourite things was the 'proper' milk and not UHT which I hate! Great choice at breakfast too. I had a great stay and will definitely be coming back!

Mum & I have just returned from a couple of nights at Fountains Guest House, we had a wonderful time! Just 10 mins walk from the bars, shops & restaurants in the centre of Harrogate.. peaceful location, parking at the rear or on street & very easy to access. Breakfast was served in a beautiful room, the hosts were fantastic & such a treat to come down & eat breakfast with some great songs being played to suit all tastes. The food was beautifully cooked & the coffee plentiful. We will back in December if not before, thank you very much x

From the easy online booking process via the clear, welcoming arrival instructions, including a whatsaap message on the day, to the friendly helpful staff this was a great short break.
The Fountains is a short walk into town but still in a quiet area near the Conference centre. There is a small car park but also a supply of daily parking vouchers for the immediate area available in the hall. The property has electronic front and room door locks so no need of manual check in and the room we had was modern and decorated to a high standard. Small details are well catered for even to the extent of having flasks of fresh milk in the lounge fridge for each room rather than inadequate UHT sachets. Breakfast was cooked fresh to order and the staff were helpful and friendly especially with my wife's dietary requirements. A great find for us.

We stayed at this lovely guest house last week and were so impressed with our stay. The code locks on the building and to the individual rooms made it so easy and hassle free to check in and out. The room itself was lovely, very clean and the bed was super comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was fab and the lovely owners were so welcoming and nothing was too much to ask. If we are ever in Harrogate again we will definitely be back. Thanks so much for a fantastic stay.

Fountains Guesthouse is well appointed with the rooms and en-suites having recently been upgraded. The lounge area is useful and the breakfasts are exceptional with great service from the lovely Sue. We have visited 5 times over the past 5 years, under different owners, but each time it just gets better. The location is perfect for walking into Harrogate itself. The bedrooms are very comfortable and have all you need for a relaxing break after a busy day out exploring.
