“A lovely B&B!”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

This is a real little gem, about 10 minutes easy walk from the lovely historical town of Harrogate in Yorkshire. It has comfortable rooms with good facilities. Staff helpful and pleasant. Service and breakfast very good. Extremely good value for money. Highly recommend.

A very comfortable, safe and enjoyable stay. I don't usually travel alone, and was very nervous about doing so. I booked a single room and from the minute I pulled up, my apprehension vanished. I arrived very early in the morning and was allowed to check in and use my room early as it was ready! This shows the staff are fair and try to please the customer. Also, there is an honesty bar where the drinks are very reasonable priced. Because of this, I met some of the other guests and had a great night of banter with them. The b&b was so quiet at night time and I had two wonderful nights sleeps. The breakfast was perfect and I couldn't have asked for anything more. It's so close to the centre of harrogate and in an area which I found to be very safe! I will definitely stay again if I'm in the area!

Stayed here for a night due to a group of us visiting to Ripon races and a night around Harrogate. Upon arrival was greated by a friendly woman who showed us to our room, advised us that there was an "honesty bar" (help yourselves to drinks and write down what you have and pay for it at the end" which was great and not too badly priced.

We were advised that my partner and I was in a Kingsize room. The bed was huge. Could have fit us aswell as another 2 couples in their easily!! The room was adequate. Numerous refreshments, adequate place to store our clothes, cases etc etc. The bathroom was a little on the small size, with a shower, toilet and wash basin, however for us, this was fine.

The lady who ran the B&B told us that she would be leaving at 8pm and if there was any drinks / food etc that we would like if we told her she would get them before she left. There wasnt, but we thought it was a lovely gesture.

The breakfast - I opted for cereal, followed by a full english breakfast and it was lovely. Couldnt fault it whatsoever. There was a variety, including fruit, cereal, various fruit juices etc etc.

I would recommend this hotel and if was ever visiting Harrogate again, would definately consider staying here. Great value for money, atmosphere, location. Couldnt fault it.

Stayed in this b&b as part of a large group. Staff were very friendly and check in was very efficient especially given how many of us there was. We had a twin room on the tip floor room was spacious enough however was a little warm. There was a fan provided though. Room was spotlessly clean. B&B is in a convenient location walking distance to the city centre. The honesty bar was a nice touch and we made good use of this! Breakfast was cooked to order and very tasty including a choice of cereals, fruit and yoghurt. Would recommend this B&B and would happily stay again

We booked this hotel quite a time in advance as we were going to attend Ripon races and spend some time in Harrogate. We booked all the rooms for one night as there were 16 of us. As my husband was on crutches, we requested a ground floor room and we were allocated this.
We were checked in as soon as we arrived en-masse, very quick and efficiently. Our room was big enough with en-suite shower and toilet – the basin was in the room with large mirror. I struggled to open the window but managed eventually, although it only opened about 6 inches. Some of the rooms had portable fans I am told, but we didn’t and it was a very warm weekend.
We all met in the lounge where we found a well stocked honesty bar and made use of this before we set out. Unfortunately we didn’t make the races as we had torrential rain and so decided to go to the bookies and find ourselves a cosy pub to spend our afternoon. This was in the Alexandra Hotel and very pleasant it was too, although we were a tad overdressed in our racing finery!
We went back to the hotel to change for the evening and again used the honesty bar on our return later that night.
The bed was very comfortable and the full English breakfast with cereals, fresh fruit and fruit juices, top notch and served very efficiently.
Check out was also flawless so all in all a very pleasant stay and we would definitely recommend the Arden Hotel.

A party of 6 decided on an overnight stay when visiting Harrogate. Although we booked some 2 months ahead it was very difficult to find suitable budget accommodation centrally located. We were all surprised at the first rate standard. Very clean. Tea, coffee and drinking chocolate in rooms. A shower or bath in good working order. Otherwise no frills in the room such as soap and shampoo. There was an excellent breakfast choice and it was freshly cooked (unlike in larger establishments). Would we go back? Definitely!

Just had a lovely two day break in Harrogate staying at the Arden House Hotel, the hotel was perfect, excellent location for all shops restaurants etc, Very helpful host who recommended places to eat for us as first time visitors. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the room was well equipped for our stay. The breakfast was very good and enough to last us all day! Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Nice outlook on front of hotel and south facing rooms.
