We stayed for one night in one of the smaller double rooms. The hotel was easy to find and in a great location for wandering around Harrogate. Parking was available but there was only 1 space left so we were lucky. Not sure where we would have gone otherwise as all the spaces we could see around town were full.
The room was small but made smaller by the bed being about a foot away from the wall due to the curved headboard. This meant the bedside tables were not against the wall and things kept falling down the back of them. I also had to lean over the lamp to reach the light switches and plug sockets which was a bit annoying.
Our room also had a fire door outside which was open at all times but meant it was really difficult to get the key into the lock to open the door. I never did get the hang of it!
One final thing that would have made the stay better was a net curtain on the window, I know this is really minor but as we were overlooking a restaurant I had to have the curtains shut making the room dark when just a net would have meant more light while I was relaxing after a lovely long soak in the deep bath.
On the positive side the bath and shower were fab, I was able to have a relaxing bath on the evening and the shower woke me up the following morning. The bed was incredibly comfy and we had a great night sleep. Breakfast was good, not a huge range but sufficient and lots of what is available. The large sofas and chairs in the public areas looked very inviting and were always busy.
The staff were very friendly and provided a warm welcome when we arrived and were able to answer all questions and even found a spare remote control when we couldn't find the one in the room.
Overall we had a lovely time and I would stay there again for a special event but would look to stay in one of the larger rooms for the price.
