I stayed in this Hotel while I visited Harrogate and it was ideally placed just outside the town. My room was a little basic and really hadn't been decorated for a few decades. However, the staff were friendly and I enjoyed using the Gym and Swimming Pool.
My impression of the hotel was affected by the fact that my stay coincided with the hotel hosting a large (and loud) party for 18 year olds. This meant that the hotel staff were busy trying to work out how to juggle this party while serving all other guests. This resulted in us being herded into an empty back room to et dinner. The couple I was travelling with were also unlucky enough to be placed in a room outside the front door of the hotel. This meant that they were kept up all night by the noise of the party guests. After negotiation, the hotel did take money off the price of the room to compensate for the noise and the fact that their en-suite toilet did not work.
In conclusion, I certainly wouldn't try to persuade people NOT to go to this hotel. It is a perfectly average hotel and you do get the benefit of a swimming pool! But don't expect luxury.
