We stayed at this hotel on a Groupon deal and were very impressed. The staff were very friendly, breakfast and dinner were both excellent. The accommodation was comfortable and clean. The hotel is well situated close to Harrogate centre.

Booked afternoon tea for 2. The greeting in the hotel lounge was non existent. The table cover was stained and the waiter was very unsure of himself in terms of customer interaction. The tea arrived without any hot water. There was was a 30 minute wait before any food arrived. Some of the sandwiches were not good as the bread...

We stayed in a suite at the front of the hotel and it was OK when the sun shone gaining enough heat to be comfortable but on a cold day, even with the additional heaters supplied by the hotel it was too cold for comfort.The bed size was also disappointing as we expected a super king size in a suite....

This is my second time here, hotel is quaint and well appointed , room was not the largest for a deluxe but adequate , and clean, only negative that despite turning the heating off being on the top floor mean the room was very hot. Breakfast was fine even though it was very busy .

Stayed one night in Feb 17 at the Old Swan in Harrogate on a special £110 deal for two. It’s a large old building; ‘faded grandeur’ best describes it. The bedroom was big, bed comfy, lots of hot water from the bath shower and the whole hotel was very clean. Afternoon cream tea was pleasant, the three-course dinner was a...

We booked our break via Superbreak and got an excellent deal inclusive of rail travel and half board for a 2 night stay. The hotel is approximately 15 minutes’ walk from the train station. On arrival (we were early) our room was ready which was a bonus. The hotel is charming and was spotlessly clean during our visit. Our room...

Got a bargain on Groupon for this hotel. It is a lovely hotel and a 5 minute walk into Harrogate. The room was clean (a biggie for me!!) but rather small. But was perfect for our flying visit. Staff very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was out of this world :-)
