“Absolutely splendid bed and breakfast.”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Wonderful accommodation and Jennifer is a very warm and welcoming hostess. Franklin View is of a very high standard indeed. We have stayed in many 4/5 star hotels world wide that do not come anywhere near the quality of accommodation, furnishings, cleanliness and hospitality at this bed and breakfast. The room we stayed in was very large with bay window overlooking the front garden. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable with lovely linen. Toiletries were high quality, hairdryer also provided with bathrobes. Tea/coffee facilities more than ample with choccie biscuits too! Breakfast was excellent with plenty selection and beautifully cooked, the eggs were done perfectly to our special requirements! We stayed at Franklin View for 2 nights 7th & 8th September and just wished we could have stayed longer. Jennifer is a lovely lady who takes excellent care of her guests, there is absolutely nothing to fault her on, all marvellous. The house is very central and easy walking to all attractions in town centre. This is certainly the place to stay if you are visiting Harrogate or surrounding area.Very highly recommended.

Excellent Bed and Breakfast, with comfortable room, shower etc., in a relatively quiet location only 10 minutes walk from the town centre. Breakfast was also very good. We stayed here for 4 nights visited many of the nearby attraction including Harlow Carr, Fountains Abbey, and Newby Hall, The latte we especially liked.

Excellent room with everything you could need from a bed & breakfast. 10 mins walk to the centre of Harrogate. Quiet tree-lined area. First class hospitality. Very friendly and welcoming hostess, who is also an excellent cook. All the little extra touches and attention to detail made our 2 night stay worth commenting on. Don't usually stay in large hotels, so for us this small friendly atmosphere was spot-on. Highly recommended. Will definitely return when we next visit Harrogate.

Stayed for bank holiday weekend 2 nights, booked it last minute about 2 days before.

Perfect location it is only a 10 min walk into harrogate, a 10 min drive to knaresborough and within close proximity to a lot of little towns.

Room was very big had plenty of space, we had the twin room as the other doubles were taken. However Jennifer was more that welcoming and said we could move the beds together. Lots of nice touches to the room; bath robes provided, shampoo, shower gels, chocolates, different varieties of teas and coffees etc. our room overlooked the garden which was nice and let a lot of light through in the morning.

As soon as we arrived we were asked what time we like breakfast which was great for us as we're late risers. Good selection for breakfast fruits, yoghurt etc or a cooked breakfast. All meat was sourced locally and cooked to perfection.

Overall I would highly recommend this guest house to anyone looking for a break in Harrogate. We felt we were really looked after and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Lovely welcome when we arrived, spotlessly clean room with nice homely decor. Some great little touches like bath robes and kit kats on the tea tray.
Breakfast was spot on, high quality ingredients cooked really well.

We stayed here from Tuesday 9th April 2013 until Monday 15th April 2013.
Franklin View is really first class, spotlessly clean, accomodation and Jennifer is a really wonderful and friendly hostess. It is located about 10-15 minutes walk from the Town Centre but frequent buses to the centre stop about 100 meters away in Kings Road.
We had the Macdui room with single beds and a well appointed en-suite bathroom with shower. The beds were comfortable and the bed linen clean and crisp. We had use of the lounge in the evening which was very nice and also comfortable. There is a fridge for the use of guests on the landing.
Breakfast was huge, with many choices, and Jennifer makes super porridge on request.
In our opinion Jennifer could not do more to make us welcome and we would not hesitate to recommend this accomodation to anyone who would like to stay in Harrogate. If we go to Harrogate again this would be our first choice.

Room Tip: Any of the three rooms would be equally suitable.

Stayed here over Valentines w/end having stayed last year.
Jennifer is such a nice host and everything is 1st class.
Lovely fresh ingredients for breakfast, large well appointed room.
Really cant remember anywhere better, and that would include fancy hotels.
Will return when we are in Harrogate again.
No hesitation in recommending because you wont get looked after better
Thanks again Jennifer and Alan
