Innkeeper's Lodge Harrogate East, Knaresborough
Ranked #10 of 15 Knaresborough B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 March 2012

The Kestrel is well placed for Harrogate and York. It is a Standard Innkeepers lodge in a very old and interesting building. The rooms are all very different but all have beams as a feature. The bed was comfortable and there was a modern freeview TV. The room was clean and well appointed . The one we had had an en suite with a bath tub and shower over. The room was a good size and had a sofa bed (For Family use). It was not over-noisey considering there was a busy pub downstairs. The Continental breakfast was well stocked and had a good veriety. The Pub provided a good choise of well cooked meals and real ale. I use this place regularly and it has never let me down. The staff are very friendly and very helpful and I heartily recommend it.

Room Tip: Family rooms have a tub and shower. Doubles have just a shower.

We've just returned from our second visit. This time the room was cleaner but only half the size. Both times due to the age of the property we've found it almost impossibe to sleep due to the constant creaking of floorboards and thin walls. We ate in the pub for both lunch and dinner due to the poor weather and found all meals to be very enjoyable and the staff were pleasant. Maybe we had the two worst rooms in the place but for this reason I would probably not stay again although I would return to the pub if passing.

Room Tip: Room 4 is small at the start of the corridor so you get noise from everyone passing. Room 7 is slig...

We stayed here on a whim because of heavy rain. Our room was cold when we arrived and to be honest it could have done with a refurb - decor was a bit tired. Dinner was nice though and service was friendly.

Have stayed there many times before, but not for last four years. Did not have any food but the rooms were still of a high standard, but what a pity the Sky TV with sport has now gone. Also no pen, writing paper or booklet showing other Inkeeper Lodges (there always used to be, and I ended up at another chain hotel the following night as a result, when I would have preffered to stay at another Innkeepers).
Staff very helpful

We stayed here at the end of 2009 (sorry I've not added a review before!) As a family of 5, we had a triple room & a twin and found it to be good value, clean & in an excellent location for visiting York, Harrogate (which we love) and to go into the dales, to grassington, slipton etc. Breakfast was exactly what you expect from any hotel /b&b nowadays, nothing to complain about, plenty for the kids. Evening meals were good pub food. If you want a top restaurant meal, you're in the wrong place, but we found it to be good value, delicious, pub grub - again plenty for the kids to chose, and if they are well fed & happy........that'll do for me!!
A great experience, we hope to go back one day - thank you

We've stayed in hundreds of places all over the World & this ranks high up there with some of the best for service!!

Fabulous staff & if we have to highlight a few then that had to be headed by Matt, Linda & Apia...

Food is out of this World, especially Fish Cobb Salad & (Meat) Mixed Grill....

We spent 4 nights at The Kestrel & thoroughly enjoyed it!!

Thanks to everyone!!!!!

Excellent stay - hospitality at its best. T - bone steak special was fantastic, cask ales exceptional if a bit pricey. Well done.
