Spent 2 nights here visiting the flower show - lovely clean and warm room - beautiful white fluffy towels and comfortable bed. Breakfast - good choice with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon a real treat - good big pots of tea and proper toast and butter - lurpak just can't be beaten!!
Excellent location for the town and theatre and easy to find. Very quiet and no issues with parking.
Helpul information on where to find a good evening meal and map on how to find everything.

This is in a good location, next to the center of Harrogate, close to shops, restaurants, pubs ect.
The Guest house was very clean, rooms had everything you need kettle tea coffee and the beds were very comfortable.

Plenty choice at breakfast, and staff very friendly, would recommend this guest house to anyone visiting this lovely town.

Room Tip: Take care when parking your car as not much room in car park, you can park on road they will give yo...

We booked a fairly last-minute one-night stay as the start of our honeymoon in Yorkshire. We welcomed the call from the manageress en route to see how our journey was going, which also meant that they were waiting for us on arrival. Nice clean and quiet room with good facilities - the bathroom was on the small side but was what we had expected, so no disappointment there. Very handy for Harrogate itself - just a 10-minute stroll through pleasant surroundings, which means you can leave the car at the hotel and avoid the town centre parking fees. Excellent breakfast, and we appreciated (but didn't need to use) the very reasonably priced honesty bar. Friendly atmosphere all round, and having had a puncture on the M1 on the way up, we were grateful for advice on the best place to get the tyre repaired before we set off on the rest of our journey. Would definitely recommend this venue as the base for a weekend sampling the delights of Harrogate (including Betty's Tea Rooms!)

We stayed at Arden House, which is about 10 minute walking distance from the town. Our stay was during the week of the Yorkshire Show in a double room on the top floor. The window of our room faced out from the front of the property with a pretty view of the tree lined road below. Parking available either at the rear or side of the property but we chose to park on the roadside at the front of the property - and parking secured by use of a parking permit which is made available to all guests. The shower room was a bit small, but not the be all and end of everything. After all we didn't go to Harrogate to spend our time in a shower room! The basin was in the bedroom, but this was preferred by us, especially when filling up the kettle for tea & coffee making facilities. The weather was extremely hot during our stay and consequently our room, especially being on the top floor was very warm during the night. We mentioned it to Bev and she provided us with an electric fan which solved the issue. Our room was clean with a more than comfortable king-sized bed which was more than welcomed and a bit of a treat!!! Lovely, homely accommodation with superb breakfasts that set us up for the day. Our only regret was not having the time to take advantage of the 'honesty bar' which we thought was a lovely idea. Nothing was too much trouble - thus ensuring a relaxed and more than welcomed break. Very many thanks once again Karen & Colin (Lincolnshire)

My wife and I have just returned from a visit to Harrogate and stayed in this Hotel, we can not speak highly enough of this establishment. It is welcoming, spotlessly clean and every requirement thought of even though the shower was on the small size. It is also very well situated for walking to Town centre.
