On arrival at the Studley we were greeted by the lovely reception who directed us to our room. Our room which overlooked the back carpark & roof (that was getting jet washed whilst we were there to remove moss etc), was nice but soooo small & the bathroom was tiny with the loo squashed at the end of the bath! I went back to reception to see if we could change rooms & they were very helpful & showed us to another room which was situated at the front of the Hotel, which was so much nicer and alot roomier!! All the staff at the Studley were very polite, friendly & helpful and although they were from various different countries, they spoke excellent English! Breakfast was lovely, with a good selection of cereals, fruits, yoghurts etc, plus a choice of cooked breakfast options to choose from. We only ate lunch in the Hotel one afternoon during our stay which was also very nice. We ate in the Orchid Restaurant on the Saturday evening which we had booked when we booked the Hotel itself and it was delicious. It must have a very good reputation as it was fully booked with locals etc!
All in all this was a nice Hotel, situated about 5 minutes walk from the centre of Harrogate with all it's shops, bar's & cafe's restaurants etc, and Harrogate itself is a lovely place, very cosmopolitan and a place I have since gone on to recommend to my Friends as somewhere well worth a visit for a long weekend etc!
