Reviewed 31 July 2011

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Kimberly hotel. We booked on line and were more than pleased with the location. It was right next door to the international conference centre and just a short walk into the centre of the town. We were given a lovely room in the new anex which overlooked a small dene. it was quiet, spacious and well appointed - everything brand spanking new. the only grouse (and a small one) was the lighting. the bedside lamps were not enough to light the room but when we put on the main ceiling spotlights the room was bright enough to perform open heart surgery!!! the breakfast was first class - (tea in a teapot and not stewed tea from a flask which seems to be gaining popularity with some hotels.) All the food was freshly made and fruit was fresh and not tinned! We ate at the restaurant on the first night and the menu was really different and good value. we ate out the second night and wished that we had just stayed at the hotel restaurant. The staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. We would certainly reccomend this hotel and if we return to Harrogate would certainly use it again.

Just returned from a two night stay at the Kimberly Hotel courtesy of kgb deals. We had a deluxe room in the annexe which overlooked woodland at the back of hotel so there was no road noise.

Room very spacious with excellent decor and large bathroom with high quality toiletries. Breakfast very good with lots of variety and food in Bistro is of a very high qualty. Staff all very polite and helpful and Hotel is defintiely a 4 * establishment.

I do have a couple of criticisms though. Although waiting on staff are very efficient there seems to be a problem in kitchen when the hotel is busy. First evening we waited an hour for our starters in the Bistro which was probably due to the fact that there was a large party in the dining room eating at the same time. Breakfast on our second day was very busy and they ran out of eggs, bacon, hash browns and black pudding all at the same time and diners (myself included) had to wait a long time for the hot dishes to be refilled. Had to pay £6.00 per night to park on hotel car park.

Despite the comments above we did get an extremely good deal and would definitely return if a similar deal came up in the future.

We stayed for 2nights , our room was with groupons booking special deals the room was an up grade ,but we felt it was not quite up to the mark no fridge no real extras as most 4stars but decor/comfort good, on sightseeing trips, we went to Harrogate TI, they gave to 2hr parking disc, The train to york, do a two for one return which is £11, knaresborough is worth stopping off the train , beautiful views, and not to forget Betty cake shop, you may have to wait along time to get a table

Room Tip: York can be a nightmare ,they do a park and ride, But the train do two for one we went from Harrogat...

Two good stays this month at this great value hotel. I had great rooms, both in the new extension. Both rooms were really spacious and furnished to a high specification. The second room had a great view over to the dales. The wifi is lightening fast and does not even need a password. The hotel has changed a great deal over the last two years and is definitely worth trying again if you used it before he refurbishment.

The breakfast experience is less good. The coffee is truely awful it manages to taste weak, burnt and bitter all at the same time. Also the choice is more limited than in oher Harrogate hotels of a similar category.

This hotel is a short stroll from town, looks fabulous, has a lovely bar and terrace, and the rooms are spacious and high spec. We stayed in one of the "executive doubles" which had nice touches like chocolates on the pillows, real coffee and a cafetiere, and gowns and slippers. From what I gathered from the conversations in the hotel lobby, not all the rooms have been fully refurbed, so ask before you book.

My only frustration was the booking process before we arrived. I was quoted three different prices on my first phone call, and when I called back to confirm, was put on hold for a really long time before going through a very laborious process to take my details. When we arrived, the reception staff were really friendly and helpful, so it may have been down to new staff members.

Overall, worth the money and I'd recommend it to friends and family.

Room Tip: Ask whether the room you've been offered is fully refurbished

My partner and I have just arrived back after staying with the Kimberley Hotel for a short break and have had a wonderful stay.

The rooms are maintained to an excellent standard and the location is fantastic in the picturesque town. Having been recently disappointed by other hotels in the area, we are delighted to have found this gem.

The restaurant menu offers mouthwatering options for all tastes and the staff are very helpful and well informed. A special mention must be made to the lovely gentleman on reception who served us on departure. His helpful and professional manner isn't commonplace in hotels these days but was an accurate reflection of all the staff at the Kimberley and really added the icing on the cake!

We will be returning!
