I'll be the first to admit that I travel a lot on business, and stay in a lot of slick 5-star hotels, so my hotel-related expectations have got pretty high.
But I was very nicely surprised!
I stayed two nights for my friend's wedding. The bed was comfy, the room and bathroom both a good size but, as someone else has said, the view from room 10 is lousy! But that wasn't exactly high up my priority list. The soundproofing is also a bit flaky, but not enough to stop me sleeping.
The bed was very comfy, the breakfast on Saturday was decent, and the sandwiches in the bar at lunchtime are AWESOME!
My only real niggle was that breakfast ends at 10am on Sunday - I missed it because I didn't get up in time. This seems pretty early to me, but if I hadn't been at a wedding the night before I'm sure it would have been fine.
I'd never been to Harrogate before, but it turned out to be a rather lovely little place. I'd go again, and I'd most likely stay at the Studley too.

Having read reports on tripadvisor we had dinner bed and breakfast at the Studley Hotel last weekend and very much enjoyed our short stay. We were unable to book a superior room but were still very satisfied with the accomodation. We stayed in room 10 and I would probably say try to avoid this if posssible as it looks out onto a storeroom roof and there was some noise from a fan outside. It wasn't enough of a problem to complain but I am sure there are better rooms.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel is well situated within easy walking distance of the shops and Valley Gardens.
Breakfast on Sunday morning was a buffet which was well presented and consisted of traditional English cooked food and continental croissants etc. Again the service was spot on.
We will definately stay at the Studley again

Room Tip: Its worth paying the extra for a superior room if one is available. Avoid room number 10.

Hotel is 5 mins walk to Harrogate centre and is on a nice quiet street so no traffic noise. Rooms and beds very comfortable - I've stayed here a few times. The only room I wasn't keen on was the attic room with the sloping ceilings as I banged my head twice! Breakfast is really good - cooked breakfast with lots of additional choices of cereals, fruit, yoghurt and juices. Staff friendly and efficient.

Room Tip: Avoid attic room as there's a risk of banging your head on the sloping ceilings.

Let's start with the good but not the best: the size of the bathrooms is quite small. The service is quite amazing: not in-your-face but extremely attentive and friendly. There's a lot of staff who all give you the feeling of being a highly esteemed guest. That is true for the hotel and for the Orchid restaurant. The Orchid specialises in Far Eastern (anything from Thailand and up to Japan via Indonesia) cuisine. We like that kind of food but at most once every few months is sufficient, usually. We dined three days out of 4 in the Orchid. If we'd spent more time in Harrogate there would have been more dinners there. Each time a truly wonderful experience. One of the nicest hotels anywhere we've stayed in. Bravo for the Studley.

Room Tip: The rooms are not very big, but the beds are excellent. Wifi in each room. It doesn't really mat...

Just returned from one of the best bargains we have had. A great stay in a hotel with excellent amenities situated in a great location. We booked directly through the hotel and paid £101 for an overnight stay in a large well appointed room together with a meal in the excellent orchid restuarant and breakfast. Tip as mentioned by others I would park on the street rather than the very small car park and obtain a permit from reception

Stayed one night whilst at concert at Harrogate Conference centre, location could not have been better, close to everything but nice, quiet street. Twin room good size with good facilities like ironing board and wash line in bathroom. Friendly staff. Good cooked buffet breakfast. Car park a little tricky for larger cars but looks like could park on street after 6pm. Would definitely use again if staying over in Harrogate.
