“Great Harrogate stay!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

As a local it is always fun to actually go inside some of the properties I have grown up around. This did not disappoint. A one night stay whilst sorting out some family business was made very enjoyable by this lovely B&B. Great room, massive bed, plenty of space to relax. And an easy walk in and out of town for all the bars and restaurants.

Room Tip: Room 16 was brilliant.

Spent a very enjoyable 3 nights at the Grafton from 1-4 August. Couldn't fault the location, accommodation, service or breakfast! Great room with super-huge TV, spotless bathroom which looked brand new, and fantastic attention to detail ... Will definitely recommend and hope to stay again!

Travelling back to home from Wensleydale decided on a couple of days in Harrogate. The Grafton.

Perfect location as 5 mins walk to the town centre.

The room was comfortable with quality bedding.

The breakfast was really good. All the usual choices but the full English appeared freshly cooked. No hotel warm bins here.

From what I experienced? an enjoyable stay

Stayed for 2 nights for a friends wedding in Harrogate. Location was ideal, parking spaces easy to find . The Grafton stood out in it's appearance from it's surroundings. Very well maintained and beautifully decorated. Room was clean, comfortable and peaceful, plenty of storage space. A short 5 min walk into the heart of town and local bars and restaurants. The owners are very attentive to detail and ensure their guests have a pleasant stay, I would stay again.( A personal Thank-you to the owners, for getting us to the wedding on time after the booked taxi failed to arrive, you went out of your way and we appreciated it).

We stayed at The Grafton for three night during the Grand Depart of the Yourkshire Tour de France. Perfect location with a rather short walk from the train station. Nice surrounding with beautyful houses and gardens. The Grafton itself is nice and spotlessly clean. The rooms are very nice, not very large but large enough for us. The bathroom is nice and well equipped, the only minus is the lack of shelves (only one small one), thus difficult to stove bathroom things. Large flatscreen TV with HD picture made it easy and nice to watch TdF when we not were on the route. WiFi worked well. Breakfast was very nice and tasty and the staff was very friendly. This B&B competes well with most 4 star hotels that we have visited.

Room Tip: Our top floor room was nice.

Just stayed at The Grafton for three nights over the time of madness that is the Tour de France! Great small hotel, not the largest room in the world, but not the smallest we have had either. Comfortable, clean, well appointed room, great breakfast, pleasant staff. What's not to like?

This place looked special from the photos I saw and it didn't fail to impress. I stayed 3 nights for a conference and it was just a 10 minute walk from Harrogate station. It certainly is boutique and the decor and overall attention to detail of The Grafton is superb. My room #1 was spacious with good size ensuite. Lovely touches are water, biscuits, sweets and White Co toiletries. Really comfy bed with plenty of pillows for every type of sleeper. The breakfast here is one of the nicest I've had with hot options served to your table and fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts, pastries, croissants and a devine walnut and date loaf! Service was quick and efficient. Enjoyed my stay in Harrogate and at The Grafton. Very special B&B, would not hesitate to recommend.
