“HOME FROM HOME IN HARROGATE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

My husband and I stayed here as part of his birthday treat in July. I had booked a flight simulator session at nearby "real simulation" and needed a nice hotel to stay in for three nights. This hotel was very good indeed.

I booked the "turret" room which is lovely, spacious and on the second floor with seating area, lovely furnishings and a nice view. A Large superking bed which was very comfortable and a lovely fire place and ensuite bathroom. there is no lift in the hotel, something to bear in mind if mobility is a problem.

The hotel is very clean and the staff are very friendly. The bar is very nice with a small terrace with a couple of chairs so you can enjoy a drink outside. The food was very good with plenty of choice for all tastes. this is a small hotel which made it feel more homely than some of the larger hotels. Ten minutes walk away are the beautiful valley gardens and Harrogate town centre with its variety of high end and chain stores.

we were very comfortable here and will be returning when we next visit Harrogate. Well done to the management and staff of Ascot House Hotel.

Room Tip: The Turret room is the best room in the hotel.

Stayed for 1 night with my wife and another couple. Quaint hotel absolutely perfectly clean and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I stay in big hotels all week and they could certainly learn a lot from how the Ascot is run and their attitude to guests. The bar is well stocked and sensibly priced and the breakfasts were excellent. Well done!!

I've just returned from 2 nights at the ascot house and found it well worth the money. The hotel is very clean, and the staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is superb, nicely cooked and good quality. Despite a previous comment the breakfast menu clearly states various options. A really good selection is available. One note to vistors from the south about Harrogate. Everybody eats very early here. No restaurant we found served after 10.pm, and many it was 9.00! There is however a good selection of restaurants in the town which is an easy 10 minute walk away

Stayed for one night at Ascot House during the Crime Writers Festival weekend. The staff were very friendly and helpful right from the start. We were allowed to check in at 1pm and we ordered pots of tea to drink outside in the beautiful garden in the lovely sunshine. Our room was a classic or cosy twin and was a decent size, good decor and spotlessly clean. Our only problem was that the weather was freakishly hot that weekend and, as I thought I'd read that the rooms were air conditioned, we didn't bring fans with us. We didn't ask the staff for a fan so don't know if they would be provided on request. Having said that under normal weather conditions the room would have been ideal.

We loved the attention to detail and had a delicious cooked breakfast in the morning. There is a good sized car park and free parking on the main road and the side road next to the car park.

It's an easy 5-10 minute walk into the town centre and easy to find if you're driving in from various locations.

I would heartily recommend this hotel and plan to stay again when I'm next in Harrogate.

We stayed here for 1 night without children and found this hotel mostly good. There were plenty of car parking spaces when we arrived at Saturday lunchtime, but the spaces were small. The reception staff, and in fact all the staff we came across were very helpful and we were able to check in early. The room was medium sized and nicely decorated. It had everything we needed. i thought it was a little expensive for what it was. The location of the hotel is great, about a 10 minute walk from the centre. As we left to go out for dinner the restaurant at the hotel was busy, I think there were some 90th birthday celebrations getting underway. I would have rated this hotel higher but when we returned there was a disco underway. We could hear it quite clearly from our room (room 3) but thought it would stop soon. We did want to have a quiet drink at the bar, but it was very busy so decided to take them back to our room. It was only then the bar person mentioned the disco would be going on till midnight. We were disappointed it was so late, given how clear it was in our room. Thankfully we had had a couple of drinks so were able to fall asleep as it was finishing, however at breakfast the following morning we noticed many of the guests were much older than ourselves and quite probably would have wanted to go to bed earlier in the night. There was no mention on the website when booking or when checking in even that there would be a function, especially one going on so late.
Breakfast was great, a tradition cooked breakfast for my husband and an inventive vegetarian cooked breakfast for me. It was all great and just such a shame there was the amount of noise there was till the time it was.

Food is good and reasonably priced. Location is good for central Harrogate. Parking is not only limited but very very tight. Large cars ie estates may struggle but talk to the staff about alternative options. Any queries or requests you may have, ring in advance or talk to the staff. I found them nothing but helpful and met all my requests.

When I say Umberto is a star, he really is. He is the ultimate professional.

This hotel could easy have achieved five stars from me but the room rate was too high for a single which really was a box room with the tiniest of shower rooms (£174 for 3 nights).
