The first thing that struck us was the lovely warm air entering the door from the cold street outside. The lounge was very cozy looking as we passed whilst being shown to our room.

Stayed here this weekend. The owners were really friendly, rooms clean and well kept, tea and coffee in the rooms and fresh milk available. The hotel was really near to the city centre, walkable and easy to find. The breakfast was just amazing, so much choice and fresh. This was a great find. Would recommend this.

Two nights here were very much as promised. The couple who run it state that they try to provide the kind of stay that they, themselves, would enjoy. Absolutely! The breakfasts were top class and we parked the car free of charge.

Having booked five rooms for a two night stay we were really pleased with each of them. There was a handy guest lounge which was really suited to our needs allowing for us all to get together during the evening. Breakfast was lovely with a fantastic choice cooked to order. Would gladly return and may well do so next year.

A most enjoyable stay in Harrogate made even more perfect by our stay at The Fountains Guest House. Our room was exceptionally comfortable. The breakfast on both days was amazing. Within easy walking distance of all of Harrogate's outstanding attractions.

My friend and I decided to have a 2 day break in harrogate to visit the Xmas market. I picked The Fountains guest house from its reviews by previous guests here on trip advisor and we certainly weren't disappointed. From the moment we arrived Jon and Lyndsay made us feel at home. Jon even insisted on carrying our bags up...
