It must be really expensive keeping on top of maintaining such a grand building ! The entrance and public areas were fantastic, but sadly as you got to the bedrooms and corridors things did begin to look and feel a bit dated. Our room was perfectly adequate but felt like it had not been decorated for 20 years or more - peeling paint on the windows, very worn carpets etc. ( I haven't been in a hotel that doesn't have a digital flat screen TV for years, but this one was still hanging onto an old analogue set complete with snowstorm picture).
HOWEVER, it was all very clean and perfectly adequate for our short stay. The staff were very pleasant, it was only a short walk to the centre of Harrogate and the breakfast was good without being great. All in all, a good place to stay if you can get a good deal, but stay away if you expect your room to be modern !
