Ascot House Hotel Harrogate
Ranked #3 of 28 Hotels in Harrogate
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 January 2014

We went to the Ascot House Hotel for a family celebratory weekend. We were one mature couple, one couple with two young children, one couple with a baby, and one single; and we occupied respectively one “flagship” double room, one family room, one double room with cot, and one single room. The rooms were clean, comfortable and very well-appointed with enviable interior decoration.

The staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and efficient – particularly the couple who were the owners and the young lady serving in the restaurant.

We were booked for two nights, two dinners and two full English breakfasts. The meals were excellent, copious and of a good standard. The Hotel had organised a private dining-room for us which gave us the intimacy we had wanted.

At all times we were very well looked after. Nothing was too much trouble for this most caring of establishments. And, when time began to hang heavy, we could always adjourn to the bar-lounge in ones and twos and groups.

The Hotel is within easy walking distance (even for the young children aged 9 and 6) of central Harrogate, the main shopping area, the Valley Gardens, the Pine Woods and the Stray. It also boasts private parking within the Hotel grounds – though the latter is not secure in the sense of being lockable.

We had absolutely no cause for complaint and we can see absolutely no reason to deduct appreciation points. This was a celebratory weekend that went off without hitch and to which the Hotel made a valuable and faultless contribution. We have no hesitation in recommending it to travellers of all age-groups.

After having a lot of problems with our original hotel (The Balmoral), cutting our stay short we found Ascot House. We inquired about a room at 10.30am on New Year ’s Eve and were told that they had a room free (very last minute life savers), check in would not normally be until 2pm but we were told that they would make us a priority and our room was ready and waiting for us by lunch time.

We booked to stay in one of the loft rooms and were not left disappointed, our room was huge, beautifully decorated and had more facilities than we could use. The room had a very large bedroom including a very comfy super king size bed, digital radio, CD player, iPod dock, smart TV, free Wi-Fi, separate seating area with drink making facilities and a lovely modern bathroom.

Ascot House cannot be faulted; the staff are brilliant, the building stunning and spotless, the breakfast tasty and a great location for Harrogate.

While this hotel is not a budget stay it is worth every penny!

Room Tip: The extra £10 for one of the loft rooms is more than worth it!

Stayed here for two nights over Christmas. A warm welcome, brilliant and friendly service, and a very clean and comfortable room. A massive choice for breakfast, with everything cooked well and an excellent Christmas lunch. I would thoroughly recommend Ascot House Hotel.

I booked this hotel 7 months' ago for 5 couples and my son for the night before his wedding in Harrogate this weekend. The booking system was simple and amendments to our requirements and special dietary requests were readily accepted.
On arrival my wife and I were warmly greeted and offered a free upgrade to the very clean, comfortable and well equipped Baxter Room.
We very much enjoyed dinner that evening and breakfast the following morning, and would certainly recommend Ascot House to other visitors.

We would recommend this hotel, the service, cleanliness, food and location was everything that we wanted from a very good hotel. The food was so good that we did not look for anywhere else to eat. We could not recommend this hotel highly enough.

Really friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms, very convenient for town. All in all a good stay. The staff also bent over backwards to send on my suit bag on next day delivery, which I had managed to leave in the wardrobe, a massive thank you.

REALLY great experience all round.
Very surprised that the dining room wasn't filled to overflowing - all of us awarded full marks.
Breakfast was heralded as top marks - it did not disappoint.
We booked without prior knowledge but would DEFINITELY will return.
