Studley Hotel and Orchid Restaurant
Ranked #4 of 28 Hotels in Harrogate
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2012

I stayed here for a Saturday night with my mum. The hotel is lovely, an old building but very comfortable and modern inside. The staff are very friendly and gave excellent service. The twin room (30) was clean and comfortable with everything you need. The hairdryer was rubbish but when I rang reception they brought me a good one immediately. The location is perfect, just a couple of mins walk to the town centre, Betty's tearooms, turkish baths, Valley park/Harlow Carr gardens and Birk Crag woodland. If you like south east asian food you MUST go to the Orchid restaurant, the food is fabulous as is the service. It was full so had a good atmosphere. I would recommend the dessert tasting platter! You also need to book in advance as it's very popular.
The breakfast is also good. There was a bit of noise at night but this is to be expected in a town centre on a saturday night! Overall a fantastic place to spend a weekend and I'll definitely return.

Room Tip: Our bathroom had a very low ceiling so anyone over 6ft make struggle in the shower, perhaps ask if s...

Could not have been better, room (suite) staff, location, and food both breakfast and evening in the Orchid 1st class Have already recommend it to family and friends. I note a couple of negative comments about noise, yes we could hear people leaving the restaurant but it was completely quite by midnight which for a central hotel is acceptable . If you want total peace stay in the countryside and sacrifice the convenience of being able to walk everywhere .

Room Tip: We chose the suite it was excellent

Beautiful hotel, attention to detail and cleanliness 5 star, Rooms are very tastefully decorated, and the hotel was so peaceful at night, no doors slamming or noisy guests. Staff and service was superb. Would recommend for a romantic weekend, not sure it is sutable family base though

Stay was business with a part social gathering, the hotel staff are very helpful, can't do enough for you we had a suite which was very nice nice and big worth paying a bit extra for. A great location the hotel is central for most things . There are some great restaurants around, we didn't get the chance to use the orchid. Restaurant in the hotel but hopefully next time we will.

This is the third time I have stayed at the hotel and it is still as wonderful as ever.The service is consistently courteous and attentive.The hotel has a feel of subtle design and this is reflected in the rooms.The in-house Orchard Restaurant serves excellent South Eat Asian influenced cuisine.The set menu was good value.The manager kept a high profile and would greet us at breakfast and in the evening.

I have stayed here in the past whilst on business but this time I brought three friends on a walking weekend break. Apart from being a beautiful town, Harrogate is an excellent base for a vast number of walks around the stunning Yorkshire countryside. A trip to Fountains Abbey and to RHS Harlow Carr are also highly recommended as they are both a short trip away. Harlow Carr can be accessed on foot through the wonderful Harrogate Valley Gardens.

We also managed to squeeze in a trip to Betty's Tea shop for some Ceylon tea and cake. Although very tasty extremely expensive. There are other very nice teashops, pubs and restaurants in the town.

An overall excellent weekend was had by all.

Room Tip: Some of the corner rooms are brighter as they have more windows.

On arrival the staff were very helpful, the room was lovely - in fact cutting to the chase, there is nothing negative I can say about this hotel, it is in the centre of harrogate but is quiet,the breakfast was very good, the shower was sooooo good, lots of local restaurants if you don't fancy eating in. in fact there is one thing I would like to mention - there should be a warning that there is a step up in he 'ladies' situated in the bar area. A really good hotel as a base for shopping in harrogate.

was dissapointed that we did not have all the facilities in our room as advertised on the website, I was not aware of this till after our visit as it was only booked last minute. we were not advised by reception on arrival that we could request these items so feel we over payed for the room. bathroom needed updating and the so called power shower was def not that, and it was very noisy when used. one one pillow provided and that was very thin, should of been extra pillows in the wardrobe if needed. lighting is also very poor in bedrooom and bathroom and the room was very warm despite us leaving our windows open all day/night. I would say this property is def over priced for the standard which is a shame as I have never really had any complaints anywhere else I have stayed
