“We will be back”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at Arden House. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious and plentiful! We arrived early but this was no problem for Beverley,the owner, who gave us a useful map and details of various restaurants in the vicinity. The rooms were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Location is excellent, just five minutes walk into town. We will definitely make a return visit. Thankyou for a great stay!!

living room and dinning room was very nice,but this was a complete contrast to bedrooms ,we stayed with a group of friends for a birthday and we were very disappointed,the owners really need to invest some cash to bring the bedrooms up to a decent standard. Shabby chic it is not, just plain shabby, wont be back

Really enjoyed our stay here, excellent breakfast, great accommodation and will definitely return. Highly recommended. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. The front garden is very well attended to as well as the accommodation itself. Location is excellent being only a few minutes walk into town. Harrogate has some excellent restaurants and there is so much to do here. The bars are also good.

This is a clean and smart business operating in what appeared to be originally two large town houses which are now amalgamated. Check in was quick, professional and friendly and our room (2) was light and functional, incorporating a small ensuite. The room appeared to have once been one large living space, but the addition of the ensuite within it worked quite well - The shower is however subsequently a little small for larger people.
Breakfast was excellent, providing a good choice of fresh fruit, cereals etc. As usual I had the full breakfast and it was excellent (and I am fussy).
Interestingly, there is also an honest bar arrangement, which is an excellent innovation.
So, while much of what I have written should be provided by any good b&b, or small hotel, why did I grade it as excellent? The answer is due to the extra care demonstrated by its owner, (Beverly?) which I will 'evidence' with two quick examples: firstly, we were able to leave our car in the car park for most of the day after booking out, saving considerably inconvenience and when my mother later returned to the car and sat in it waiting for my wife and I the owner invited her back inside 'for a nice cup of tea'. Such thoughtfulness speaks volumes about the quality of the stay you can expect at Arden a House.

We really enjoyed our short stay at Arden House, this time with a group of friends. The breakfasts are delicious and certainly set you up for the day. We enjoyed several drinks in the bar lounge before going out to a restaurant recommended by Beverley and we are looking forward to returning in the New Year. Thanks again for a great stay.

We were rather disappointed with Arden House. The reviews when we booked were good. Perhaps it was our room which let it down....4 poster bed was nice but room very small and shower room also. Sealant in shower room had seen better days and was discoloured. Breakfast was good and the honesty bar is a nice touch. Wouldn't recommend it and it isn't a budget hotel.

Room Tip: We saw room 2 which looked bigger and brighter. Wish we had gone for that instead of being attracted...

We are sorry you were not completely satisfied with your stay here, however we have changed the sealant straight away. It is such a shame you felt you made the wrong decision when choosing rooms as we always strive to please but cannot make people's minds up for them. Thank you for your praise towards our breakfasts for which we obtain many excellent reviews.
