          Good location with easy access to Harrogate.

          Our accommodation was dated,the decor was tired,there were no curtains and one of the venetian blinds was broken.Being above the kitchen there was intrusive noise both early in the morning and late at night. Breakfast was very ordinary,in particular, the continental choice was limited.Staff with the exception of the receptionist were lacklustre and housekeeping was atrocious. All in all very poor value for money.

          Hotel is in ideal spot for visiting the sights around Knaresborough.

          Part of the hotel is in need of up dating. First offered a superior room in older part of hotel. very disappointing then moved to newer part of hotel this was far better.

          Good location, good spa facilities.

          Room needed total refurbishment. Wallpaper & paint peeling off, shabby furnishings, old & dirty bathroom suite.

          The Spa was a lovely space to chill out in, The breakfast was very tasty and the staff friendly

          Friendly and professional hotel.

          Decorators appear to be busy on each of our occasional visits.....no problem though !

          Breakfast

          We were in the older part of the hotel room booked was a superior - very dissapointed, shabby & old fashioned. With a double bed with foot bar (husband 6'4'')

          5.0

          The location was very convenient for Harrogate and Mother Shipton's cave. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Wonderful swimming, sauna and steam room in Spa.

          Two of our three bedrooms were awful. Eighties bathroom, tiles, shower and fittings. No heating when we arrived in the snow. Room not properly cleaned and bedcover just pulled up rather than made. No light bulb in bedside light (asked for it to be replaced).Blind broken.Bed oid.

          Front desk staff very helpful. Spa facilities excellent. Food good. Bar service friendly. Location good.

          Some of restaurant staff were slow and showed little interest in customers, Lacked any enthusiasm for their job.

          Large Beds, English breakfast was well cooked

          Not as we imagined from the pictures!| Our room was far from 'superior' We had to swap rooms as the first one we were given smelt badly of smoke although staff were helpfull at relocating us as we had to move the extra bed, Our employees room we had booked had a toilet that would not flush, Breakfast service was very slow. Rates did not reflect the room standard.

        • Single

          absolutely nothing!

          my room - with scolding hot water floorboards that squeek from neighbouring rooms.dirty fllor and bathroom especially needs updating.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          Could be a fantastic hotel - excellent location. Rooms in dire need of modernisation. Staff very friendly and helpful.

          Thought £130 was a lot to pay considering rooms very old and in need of update.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Dinner was nice, also it was good to have a workout room with lots of equipment. Room was spacious. Bed was OK.

          Pillows were nasty little thin things, and throw pillows were old. Window had no screen, so bugs could fly in when the window was open.

        • Older travelers
          2.8

          Nothing

          Room was very poor. Looked like it hadn't been properly cleaned in years. The brown nylon duvet covers were the poorest I've ever seen in a hotel old, worn and stained. It was raining in the morning outside and we new this as there was water dripping through the roof in the hall outside our room door.

        • Single
          8.2

          - The gym/spa facilities are very good - In a fantastic location within walking distance of the town

          - Internet connection in the room was very poor - probably due to the rural location of the hotel, but connection was better in the reception area.
