“Fanbabbydosy. To coin a phrase”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Just got back from 3 nights at Fountains and it was great. We arrived Monday afternoon , and greeted by this giant of a fellow John, who very quickly did the man thing and passed us over to his wife Lindsey. She is lovely and a giant welcome was fast signed in and up to the room. Big clean and fresh milk for you tea or coffee. Their knowledge or should I say Lindsey knowledge of places to eat or visit is endless. They want to know how your day was where did you go and do suggest places to see etc. Breakfast it much easier to say what is not on the menu rather than what is. Always got a smile on their faces in fact we both agree this is one of the most friendly guest houses we have stayed in. One thing I did like was in the lounge they have a small fridge in which they have fresh milk free and wine beer with an honesty box what a great idea. when Harrogate again well will be back for sure John Lindsey thank you.

Me and my sister stayed at the fountains guest house for 5 days in a twin room. We had a lovely experience whilst staying there. The b&b was immaculate, the room was great and the owners and staff were fabulous! I absolutely loved my stay. We were on the top floor at the front of the building facing the road which was a little noisy however the windows were double glazed so when closed noise was not an issue at all. The only negative was that our beds were uncomfortable they were very hard and also very short I found my feet hanging over the end (I'm 5 ft 6) but besides that it was absolutely perfect I would happily stay there again.

this is an extremely comfortable hotel, nicely furnished and the breakfasts were excellent. Lyndsay and staff were very helpful and professional and had given a lot of thought into making this an enjoyable experience for all of their guests. They also gave helpful suggestions about where to eat. The house is quiet but close enough to the centre of Harrogate and most of the places of interest.

Just returned from a short break. A warm welcome on arrival by Jon which continued throughout our stay.
The room was immaculate and the breakfast was superb with a good selection which was of a very high standard. Lynsey was pleasant and attentive.
No problem with parking and within easy walking distance of town centre.
If we were visiting Harrogate again we would definitely stay there and recommend it to others.
It was one of the nicest places we have stayed at!
Thankyou Lynsey & Jon.

i have just returned home following a short stay at this guest house.....truly amazed and impressed with the quality of the accommodation and the personal attention received from Lyndsay.
Within minutes of arriving I sensed we were set for an enjoyable stay for the welcome was so warm and the bedroom so clean and spacious.
The breakfasts were exceptionally good...with tasty food that clearly had been bought from quality suppliers. I particularly enjoyed the fruit compote that was available.
The spacious 'guests' lounge.....and the complimentary parking permits ....were a welcome bonus.
I was not surprised to find that this guest house had guests regularly returning......i certainly expect to be back!

Could not fault this guesthouse at all. Owner friendly and welcoming. Rooms clean and nicely decorated. Owners had created a local guide for the rooms recommending days out, bars, restaurants, etc. this was really helpful. Good location and free parking also a bonus. Breakfast was excellent. We will definitely be visiting again.
