An ivitation to a wedding( which involved a group booking for guests) was our first visit to Harrogate, and our first experience of the Studley Hotel. This was definitely a case of "love at first sight", and we have since become addicted to this beautiful Yorkshire town and to the priceless jewel that is the Studley. The hotel is located close to the centre of town, but nestles in a little niche of peace and tranquillity close to a magnificent public park. From the outside it looks like a typical victorian terrace, however the interior has been impeccably refurbished and exudes an atmosphere of relaxed charm. The reception and lounge/bar have a distinct oriental flavour to their decor. The armchairs are so comfortable and inviting that you could just chill out in them for hours... that is assuming you were completely immune to the lure of the Orchid Restaurant. What can one say? Imagine the best Chinese restaurant you have ever been to, and then think again. This place is so good that you will need to book well in advance to get a table. The extensive menu covers a wide range of oriental dishes, and the wine list is superb.
The service is discreet and highly professional. We have been back to the Studley once already, and have booked our third visit for September this year. We can't wait to renew our link with this truly magnificent town and its crown jewel - the Studley.
