“Central location, good choice for a short break away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

This hotel is very centrally located in Harrogate and we had a very nice stay here. The hotel and our room was a bit dated and could do with some renovation work but it didn't harm our stay at all. Breakfast was tasty and filled us up although we had to wait sometimes for ages for the cooked food to come....others got theirs before us even!

All and all though, this hotel is central, reasonably priced and we enjoyed our stay here. The bar was busy most nights with functions going on (like weddings) so we had to go outside to the bars down the road to get a drink. Overall it's a nice 3-star hotel kind of place but good breakfasts and friendly staff, it's a good base for any Harrogate tourist.

i booked the white hart as they had a family room that would sleep four adults, and as it was myself and my three sisters we were more than happy to share. the price i paid for b and b was cheaper than the premier inn and much nicer. we visited for my sisters 60th birthday.

all the staff were very helpful and efficient, the lady on reception was more than happy to have the flowers i had brought taken to our room so it would be a surprise for my sister.

we liked the atmosphere in the hotel, especially the candles on the stairs, and the fat badger pub!

the family room turned out to be two interconnecting rooms with a double bed and 2 singles. as this was an executive room we also got molton brown toiletries. we had no problem with the room, it was nicely furnished and very comfortable. we were near the lift but couldn't hear it at all.

we chose to upgrade to dinner which was fantastic and very well priced for what you got, again excellent service. after a few cocktails we retired to our room for a good chat and a catch up, we decided we wanted more drinks and they happily brought them up and we were charged the same price as in the pub.

breakfast next morning was very good, fresh hot and tasty and the usual things on the buffet if you didn't want the cooked option, again very nice, helpful staff.

when we were leaving the receptionist validated out car park tickets and explained we could stay all day if we wanted, a definite bonus in Harrogate.

all in all a very enjoyable stay and we will happily return.

Room Tip: the family room will sleep 4 adults

Stayed 1 night at this hotel on a room only basis. Fairly good value for Harrogate and brilliant location close to shops, restaurants, Betty's tea room, Harrogate baths and Valley Gardens. Parking was good once we got it sussed....residents at the hotel only have to pay £6 per night and no extra during the day even if you have checked out. This worked out cheaper than the town car parks. Reception has to endorse your parking ticket before you can leave. The room was smallish with 2 beds pushed together. The beds were not very comfortable. It was at the top of the hotel at the front but most of the view was obscured by a wall going round the roof. It was quiet, tastefully decorated and quite charming. Apart from the restaurant and bar at the front of the hotel there was little else to the hotel but rooms and long corridors. There were some chairs in the entrance hall, a toilet near reception and a gym but no lounge to sit in. Overall I enjoyed my stay here as Harrogate has so much to offer.

Room Tip: Our room at the top was very quiet.

I have thought long and hard before I added this review.
The White Hart has the potential to be a lovely hotel. The location is superb and ideal for walking into the centre of Harrogate.
The Fat Badger bar is popular and gets busy. The dining room looks good.
However..................... the bedrooms are so in need of much updating and bringing up to the expected standard of a four star hotel. From our experience and from reading other reviews, the furniture is shabby and chipped. The ensuite bathroom was very basic with no extractor fan which didn't work and to our disgust, on the first day I had to ask the reception staff to arrange for a wadge of hair to be removed from the bath waste which they did within the twelve hours I gave them. Quite off-putting to say the least!!! The wardrobe had two hangers in it and when I asked for more, I got two more!! I then asked again and six arrived.
Four of us stayed for five nights and made the most of the area. Harrogate is a super place and we will be back but will not stay in this hotel again. Very disappointing. I so hope they do something about the rooms as I cannot see a future for the accommodation side of this hotel if it continues as it is a present. Think twice before you book as I feel you could be as disappointed as we were.
The reception staff did a good job of coping with all the complaints (and not just ours!)

If you have booked then try and get your money back. We booked for three nights and even thought of moving.This hotel does not take any of your complaints on board. Superior room not even three star standard, dated and tired. I can only assume the 25mm gap under the door was for ventilation but obviously someone forgot about the occupants privacy!!!!!. Fire doors wedged open and if you have a room at the front above the dining room beware of the patio chair tidier at around 5 30am. Noisy. Oh and take your own batteries for the remote control for the TV, I asked for some on the first night and still waiting. Overall very very disappointed and would not recommend.

Room Tip: Take a draught excluder.

Myself and my husband stayed at the White Hart Hotel in Harrogate mid week. The room was lovely, very French style. Good size, nicely decorated, really lovely. The staff were great, helpful and polite. The only gripes- no fan in the bathroom which meant the room stayed very steamy and we were so hot and could have done with a fan- but it was a bit of a heat wave!
Really smart hotel, nice bar and brilliant location. We will be back!

Room Tip: We were on the second floor, noticed some less flattering reviews so we asked for this.

Stayed for one night en route to Scotland and my husband and I were not disappointed. Yes, it's an old building but that's part of the magic about this hotel. So much history (as once a hospital, apparently!).
Our room was nice, food (breakfast and dinner) fabulous. The staff friendly, polite and so eager to give us some history info on the Hotel and surrounding areas. Lots to see, great walks.
Stumbled across this beautiful place by accident and will definitely return for a longer visit.
