Studley Hotel and Orchid Restaurant
Ranked #5 of 30 Hotels in Harrogate
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 April 2014

I've stayed at the hotel and eaten in the restaurant more times than I can count over the last couple of years for business. Firstly, the hotel could teach many supposedly 5* hotels a thing or two about customer service and value for money. The rooms are well appointed, well decorated and have useful touches like a charging station for a variety of mobile phones. WiFi is free and easy to connect to through the hotel and rooms.

The restaurant is always the highlight of any visit to me, and whilst I have tried many places in Harrogate, it is always the Orchid I look forward to the most. For variety of SE Asian food it cannot be beaten. The quality and preparation is high-end and the staff are clearly very well trained by an attentive maître d'.

The Studley and Orchid are my first choice every-time.

Room Tip: The rooms with large bay windows at the front give a pleasant outlook over Harrogate. The street is...

18 of us (gents mainly in 40's and 50's) are staying at the Studley Hotel at the end of May while doing a 3 day 200mile bike ride around the Yorkshire Dales taking in some of the forthcoming Tour de France route. As with previous years I always take my wife to stay in the hotel that I have selected for the annual bike ride to check that my choice is a wise one. This year we were joined by another 7 couples at the Studley Hotel on Saturday 29th March, and we were not disappointed. The rooms were clean and well presented and the hotel staff from the receptionists to the bar staff and waiters / waitresses were all very polite and helpful. However the jewel in the crown has got to be the Orchid Restaurant within the hotel, the food is absolutely out of this world. One of our party who regularly travels to China and Korea on buiness commented that the food is as good as any of the food that he has experienced on his travels, high praise indeed. The hotel has a warm, friendly atmosphere and I am looking forward to our return in May.

Saw the offer for the Studley Royal hotel where you get a free voucher for £30 for the in house restaurant, the Orchid! Great room, got a free upgrade, wifi was free and excellent. Great bath and shower. The food in restaurant was great and with the voucher excellent voucher. Atmosphere in the hotel was great and the rooms and service brilliant. Breakfast was okay, had better. All in all a good stay, would recommend and go again.

I stayed here with a work party and have done so more than once before. It is a pleasure to say that I think it has improved since the first stay and was a great experience from the clean room to the lovely food and more.
A sign at the lift caused great amusement reading as it did 'do not use lift in case of fire!' What a gem!
The evening service was exemplary catering for the 15 of us with 3 vegetarians! I would stay again, it is very good value and has the benefits of a larger hotel. Parking as always, was rubbish!

We booked an overnight stay at the Studley Hotel after reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor, and what an excellent choice it was. Our room was very clean, with a superb, modern on-suite bathroom. The food at the Orchid Restaurant is excellent, and the staff there are very informative and attentive. The hotel itself is ideally situated in the centre of town, close to Valley Gardens which are lovely to walk through at this time of year. The hotel has a reasonable size car park at the rear. Overall, a very enjoyable stay, and we look forward to using the Studley Hotel in the future.

Ok but not worth the price difference to other rooms we've stayed in at the hotel. Lots of chipped paint and naff furniture. Toilet light comes on automatically day AND NIGHT ! No control of main room light from bed. Staff great, though someone from housekeeping left keys in our room door most of day - not too secure. Stay here because of staff and location but don't bother with extra money for Trimbach suite

Room Tip: Don't bother with Trimbach suite
