Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Harrogate. The hotel is The hotel is huge and looks quite impressive from the outside. On arrival to the hotel car park - which is £3.50 a day to park (totally unnecessary and makes the hotel look desperate for cash) - we were welcomed and directed to our first floor room. The room was huge, almost too big with 3 wardrobes! The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. The windows were drafty and made quite a racket when the wind blew. The bathroom was also huge and the shower which was inside the bath with a curtain was just adequate. The odd thing was when the bedside light wasn't on, half the bathroom lights would be off! We didn't eat in the hotel except for breakfast which was very nice. Staff were quite good but maybe needed to proactive rather than reactive to stocking up the food (often waited for something to completely run out before going to restock). We had a drink in the bar which ok except the background music was stuck playing the same part of a tune for the full hour without being changed. Also had to wait to be served a while as the bar man didn't seem to know the order to serve people.
The gym and pool was adequate. A very small gym wasn't helped by some equipment not working. The pool and jacuzzi were small and was little room to move but this was just the time I chose to go I guess.
Overall a reasonable stay at a large hotel in a good location. It cost us nothing as we paid in Tesco vouchers, which is probably why we weren't asked if we'd enjoyed our stay when we left, but certainly wouldn't pay full price to stay here.
