The Majestic is really trading on it past history. It's huge and imposing, well situated for central Harrogate and with updated rooms that were much better than the rather dingy facade suggested. The staff were friendly and attentive, but it's the kind of place you have to feel comfortable with to realy enjoy. The dining room is very large and echoey with large numbers of people dining at the same time - to me it felt like an up-market holidya camp. The room was clean and comfortable, with plenty of space. Breakfast (self-service) was plentiful and varied. We stayed one night on a breakfast-included deal, which was good value.
We chose to have dinner at the hotel and it proved to be a Big Mistake! £25 a head for 3 very mediocre courses. The menu was uninteresting and tasteless, definitely not worth the money. We asked for a full wine list rather than the choice of 3 reds and 3 whites that came with the menu, and chose to have a glass each of sparkling wine to be followed by a glass each of red. Our waiter told us this wasn't possible as we could only order a bottle, despite our choices coming from the list of 'Wines by the glass'. We did get the sparkling wine and gave up on the glasses of red, though we did tell reception who brought the restaurant manager to see us. She assured us that this had been a mistake nad was most apologetic, but it seemed very odd. I would definitely suggest eating at one of the many choices of eating place in the town only a few minutes walk away!
