“Friendly staff, clean room, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2011

This is our second stay at The Yorkshire and I must say I am struggling to see why some people give it such bad reviews. Unless of course they are expecting 5 star accommodation, in which case they should read more closely as it's a 3 star hotel.

But star rating aside, we have enjoyed both our stays here. The staff are polite and attentive, both on the reception desk and in the restaurant and they make the effort. As an example, the parking seems to be an issue at the Yorkshire and as there was a wedding on, there were no spaces when we arrived to check in. However the receptionist immediately pointed out where the nearest multi-story carpark was and also helpfully pointed out that as it was a Saturday, from 6pm we could park in a pay and display space for free until the end of Sunday. Armed with this knowledge, we ended up being able to park right outside the hotel anyway.

Once in our room, a front facing one as requested, we found it clean, functional with no problems at all. Yes it was relatively small, but there were only two of us and how much time do you actually plan on spending inside the room? The bed was comfy, the hot water was hot and the thick curtains did a good job of keeping the strong sunlight out the following morning.

Breakfast the following morning was perfectly fine. Everything that should have been hot, was hot and vice versa. The staff where pleasant and polite and the restaurant itself was a nice place to relax and eat.

As for value, we booked via laterooms.com and got the room with evening meal and breakfast included for just short of £80. At that price it was exceptional value.

If you are looking for a pleasant hotel, right in the center of Harrogate with great views from the front facing rooms, you could do a lot worse than the Yorkshire. Get one of their special deals and it's a real bargain too.

Room Tip: Request a front facing room

we stayed as a wedding party, and evry moment was made special. staff always willing to help and polite. the room we were in was bit small but clean. the food was lovely from the wedding meal to the morning breakfast. we were going to have a trip on sunday to leeds, but there was so much to do in harrogate that we had no time. betty's tea rooms were just great. and also the turkish baths looked good. this hotel is the best i have stayed in to date. i did not use the restaurant because table was booked behind the hotel in a bar.

Room Tip: ask for the rooms over looking the front.

In need of modernisation, room was very drab & very dirty. Cracked bathroom sink. It is poor value for money. Wouldn't recommend and certainly won't be returning.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of The Yorkshire Hotel, I am sorry that your stay was clearly not an acceptable standard for which I can only apologise.

We are currently undertaking an in house redecoration programme which has started with the ground floor and corridor areas and working up through the floors. This will certainly rectify some of problems you encountered.

Just returned from two nights half board at the Yorkshire Hotel. We booked a self drive break through Travelstyle and we couldn't have been more pleased. Spacious room, clean linen, and lovely bathroom. The hotel staff were all so friendly and our room was on the corner so we had two views. The one over the cenotaph being superior in my opinion. The food was excellently presented and tasted delicious. We were worried we might not get a parking space so we arrived early which the hotel were fine about, you need to tell them though as you need a voucher from them to display in your windscreen. We did not move the car until our departure for fear of not being able to get another space which I don't think we would have done. The hotel is amazingly central to all of Harrogate's attractions which means you aren't trudging around getting worn out.
A visit to the Royal Pump Rooms was so interesting and I learnt alot about the history of the spa's from there. Make sure you taste and smell the water from the outside tap!
Our first proper visit to Harrogate made truly memorable thanks to the Yorkshire Hotel.

We have just returned from this hotel. We stayed for 1 night and as the previous reveiwer we were allocated room 326!!

We were appauled at how small, drap and dirty it was, so much so, that we asked to be moved. The staff were so helpful and very effecient, even though the hotel was busy! We were moved instantly without any issue and they put us in one of the rooftop rooms!

Lovely nights sleep, lovely breakfast and very friendly staff.

Moral of the story - if you don't ask you don't get!

Enjoy your stay!

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of The Yorkshire Hotel, I am sorry that your stay was clearly not an acceptable standard for your first night which I can only apologise. It was extremely helpful to have a telephone conversation we had after posting your comments. Thankyou for finding the time to speak with me and it was great to learn that this experience had not detered you for using the hotel again. It was a real pleasure to read you comment relating to the staff.

Just for an update for other readers of the review: Room 326 it is a small double with a compact shower room, however the comments in relation to the decoration have been actioned this room has had the ceilings replastered and has undergone redecoration.
