Spent three days at this hotel as a base to tour Harrogate and surrounding area.
Built on a hill this hotel has a fine view overlooking the town.Access to reception is from the main carpark,the first thing I noticed is there is no disabled access from the car park to reception.Those with mobility issues have to take a circular route via the spa and gym to reach the reception.Reception was quick and efficient.Our room was on the second floor overlooking the main entrance,which proved to be a bit noisy on occasions.The room was a good size with two armchairs and a desk with a plentiful supply of information about the hotel and surrounding area.The en-suite too was of a decent size,although the step into the bath was quite high.As usual the house keepers worked hard and did a good job of keeping everywhere well cleaned.
We stayed on a b+b basis so only used the dining room in the morning.The dining room was one of the largest we have ever seen,almost big enough to play football in.The room afforded plenty of space between tables which made a nice change.The breakfast menu was excellent with a choice to suit every taste, pity there was no black pudding.The dining room, like the rest of the hotel gives an insight back to a more elegant time,everywhere has thick carpets and chandeliers,wide sweeping staircases and corridors wide enough to almost drive down.At all times the staff where helpful and attentive and although the hotel could do with some T.L.C in some areas,we would recommend the Majestic as an excellent base from which to tour this very nice area.
