Baytree House
Ranked #9 of 98 Harrogate B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 October 2013

We (my wife, two teenage children and I) have just returned from a weekend trip to Harrogate to see relatives. We enjoyed two nights at Baytree House and would definitely return. The hosts Amanda and Simon were extremely friendly, helpful and professional from start to finish. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them.

The property itself is ideally situated for central Harrogate and all its shops, bars and restaurants. It's probably no more than a gentle 10-15 minute stroll to the theatre district.

We had two rooms - a twin and a double - both of which were comfortable and well appointed. The bathrooms, whilst not huge, were more than adequate. Good shower, good towels and spotlessly clean. Also off-street parking is available, which is a huge bonus for Harrogate.

As others have noted, the breakfast were excellent. I forgot the diet for a couple of days and went for the Yorkshire breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great, high quality local ingredients perfectly cooked. Simon even does his own home baked bread and homemade bio yoghurt.

As you'll see from my other reviews I am pretty critical where needs be, but I can honestly say that I can't fault our stay at the Baytree. We'll definitely be staying there again when we next visit the town.

Breakfast would put many a 5 star hotel to shame. Coupled with excellent service, fine white china, polished cuttlery and white linen the meal was wonderful. Kindly, charming & totally professional hosts -staying at the Baytree was an absolute pleasure

Room Tip: Room 8 was tucked away but the stairs had rails and were not steep at all.

We spent 3 nights and it was most enjoyable Amanda and Simon were extremely pleasant, and the breakfast was just delicious and a wide choice. What's more it was cooked to order (so different from many places where significant use is made of microwave to reheat!). It was a short walk to the town. As we hope to revisit Harrogate it will be our first stop.

Room Tip: Small twin is what it says, and both people cannot (if wanted) watch TV at same time, due to positio...

This is one of the best Hotel's I have ever stayed in. Lovely decorated rooms. Simon and Amanda were very obliging they could not do enough for you. Breakfast was great and would keep you going all day. It is located close enough to walk to town and I would certainly recommend this Hotel. If I ever go to Harrogate I ill be booking this Hotel. This hotel is worth 10/10.

We have just returned from spending 2 nights at the Bay Tree House. Having viewed some of the comments beforehand we were hopeful that we had chosen well. We did! The Bay Tree is first class, We had a beautiful room with en-suite facilities including a very powerful power shower. The breakfasts were amazing and the homemade bread added that special personal touch that typifies this delightful guest house. Simon and Amanda do make their guests feel special. We would highly recommend

We stayed at the Baytree House for 3 nights last week - could not have wanted a better location - lovely room with beautiful luxurious bed and a fabulous power shower and a breakfast that kept you going on all day - keep baking that seed bread Simon !!

We would totally recommend if going to Harrogate - we would certainly go back

From the minute we arrived we were given an extremely warm welcome by Amanda who assisted us with our luggage. Our room was just lovely everything was so clean and beautifully decorated. The dining room was set out perfectly with crisp white linen and fine bone china. Amanda worked very hard to ensure all her guests were comfortable and had everything they needed at all times. Fresh fruit, home made yoghurt was available but we especially enjoyed Simon's home made bread, it was all delicious. I would go as far to say it was the nicest B&B experience I have ever had. Thank you Amanda and Simon, we would love to come and visit again.

Room Tip: We had a superior room which was really beautiful
