    Clean and comfortable. Good location to the town and convention centre.

    I have stayed in many hotels around the world and have not come across a 'handling surcharge' for settling the account with a credit card. To be told there is an additional fee after your stay has been confirmed at an agreed internet rate, has put me off staying here again. It was only a nominal charge but why not include it in the price? Then the customer doesn't feel that they're being fleeced for extra cash when they leave.

    Superb

    Friendly and helpful reception staff. Clean spacious rooms, clean bathrooms

    The breakfast menu didn't match what was available, there was a full selection of hot food including kippers but there were bakery goods missing. While there were plenty of waiting staff, our orders were slow to be taken and the tables were not cleared after people had left. AT one stage we were surrounded by at least 10 tables waiting to be cleared.

    Breakfast is variable and choice of cooked breakfast is very good. breakfast/dinner room is lovely at the old swan.

    The pillows. need to be steralised, or replaced more frequently. greasy smell.

    Was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews, but the staff were lovely and we got a free upgrade to a executive room. It had been snowing in Harrogate when we arrived and the hotel was lovely and warm and welcoming. In a great location for shops, bars and restaurants.

    Clean rooms and bathrooms. Excellent breakfast.

    Bedroom was rather cramped, it was smaller than the bathroom! And we went for the executive rather than the standard!

    Large room, large bed, all very comfortable. staff very friendly and willing to help

    Radiator was on 24/7 and we couldn't turn it off, made room hot. we had a deal which did not induce breakfast making it less value for money.

    Everything very clean. Great location at the centre of Harrogate with attractive gardens to sit out in during sunny weather, facing south. Comfortable bed. OK value for money. Room was very quiet,and high up as requested.

    Bed was quite small and the room was compact in size, but OK for the money and perfect for our requirements. Not clear about what sort of coffee for breakfast was being served so ordered tea instead.

    Fabulous

    Felt very spacious - bar, breakfast area, parking. Good location for working at the HIC. Was upgraded to double to give me more space. Think 2 of us in that bed would have been a struggle but appreciated the gesture. Had a really nice bar meal in the lounge while working on my laptop. Didn't feel uncomfortable at all being a single woman.

    The lift didn't work - not overly problem as only staying a couple of nights so no heavy luggage but average age of visitors was quite high; felt sorry for them on the stairs. The room could have done with more windows / ventilation and the remote for my TV was missing but none of this was so bad that I wouldn't return.
