Guest Feedback

Here are a few comments from guest who have stayed with us over the past month.

“Great place to stay”

I like Harrogate and welcome the opportunity to stay whenever I can. The hotels are expensive and so I decided to look around and avoid the main-stays and chose a bijou type accommodation. It was a great move as I came across the Grafton. It is conveniently placed near to the town centre. There is parking and we arrived to a pleasant welcome. The arrangements were completed easily having booked on line. The rooms are small but pristine. Spotlessly clean with immaculate on suite facilities, there is the added bonus of tea making facilities a plenty and toffees and biscuits . The beds are supremely comfortable and after a good night’s sleep we went to the dining room and enjoyed an excellent breakfast with an extensive selection of cerials, fruits and choices of cooked breakfasts to suit all tastes with vegetarian options served with helpful and considerate staff. All in all, full marks and we will return.

“Why pay hotel prices when you can have this – Northern hospitality at its best”

We booked a room at the Grafton to celebrate my mum’s birthday in August and what a super place this is. We were greeted by the fresh smell of flowers as you walked through the door and then given a very warm welcome by the owner who was very helpful in showing us where to find certain attractions and places to visit. The decor was very ’boutique’y’ and it is clear that the owners have put a lot of passion into making this place look stylish and cared for. It was incredibly clean, tidy and comfortable and the location was spot on for anyone who fancied a pleasant and short stroll into the town (rather than driving and finding parking.) Pleasantly quiet with no traffic roaring past your window. I can honestly say this place would take some beating compared to the overpriced hotels in Harrogate. A cute little bar in the lounge was a nice touch for a B&B and the breakfast were excellent (the walnut bread was to die for….may I have the recipe please?) The waitress was very attentive and made sure that we wanted for nothing. I’d would definitely come here again. All in all I have very happy memories of a lovely long weekend in Harrogate. Thank you!

“Quality shines through at this pristine boutique B&B”

The overall quality of this small boutique B&B would match any contemporary four star hotel and that makes for exceptional value for money. We couldn’t have asked for a better bedroom and their award-winning breakfast also impressed in both quality and choice. That said the only slight disappointment was with the scrambled eggs, which had a blancmange texture and lacked flavour. There’s a cosy lounge and a residents bar. Staff are extremely attentive and we were made very welcome. The B&B lies in a quiet leafy street and we managed to park right outside. And you can walk to the town centre in under ten minutes. The Grafton would definitely be our choice when returning to Harrogate.

3 Night Stay

A lovely base from to visit Harrogate. Very, very professional, excellent value. Fantastic breakfast. Easy walk to the town centre, where there are many great restaurants and shops. Parking is on the road outside the hotel, that’s fine.

 

Last minute night out

Booked Grafton at short notice and very pleased we did. This is a modern clean and friendly establishment. Staff at reception and breakfast very happy and polite. Room clean and decorated to a modern style. Very comfy bed with great pillows, quiet location and only a 10 minute stroll to town centre. Breakfast was excellent (one of the best full Englishness I have had) with great eggs and trimmings. Do not hesitate in booking this great little place.

 

High-quality B&B / small-hotel in centre of town

This B&B excelled in all respects, and with its size and availability of small lounge and bar, it felt more like a boutique hotel than a B&B.
The owners were charming and very helpful. The rooms were clean and high quality furnishings. Breakfast was simply superb, the owner’s mother’s date cake recipe is a must and the granola mix (home-made) the best I ever tasted!
With easy street parking outside and a simple 5-minute walk onto the main high street (and Bettie’s of course), this is a rest-over I can definitely recommend.

 

A Great Boutique B&B” 

Me and my wife visited The Grafton as part of a short break to North Yorkshire. We booked into a superior room as we wanted to treat ourselves to something a little bit more luxurious. When we arrived we were able to park right outside the hotel and were promptly greeted. We arrived earlier than anticipated but they let us check into our room which was a real bonus! The room was spacious, comfortable and the bed was very comfortable. The decor of the hotel was distinctly boutique and the flowers around the hotel were amazing. The next day we went down for breakfast and it was very very good, we checked out and settled our balance which was quick and very straight forward. We would certainly book here again!

 A much needed overnight child free break

Just left The Grafton after spending a lovely relaxing evening away. We arrived late Saturday afternoon and were greeted with a warm welcome. We had a standard double room with en suite facilities. It was immaculate! Really clean and nicely decorated. It is obviously well cared for. We had a choice of tea, coffee, and hot chocolate with lovely biscuits too. There were even some toffees! The staff were available if and when needed but not breathing down our neck, so perfect for our quiet escape. We went out in the evening to a restaurant but could have had drinks in the bar/lounge​ if we wished. I would definitely do this next time as it allows you to appreciate the property more. We had a quiet night and slept really well. Bed comfy. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast. I had the full english which was fresh and hot. My other half had ham and eggs and the ham was lean and tender. Service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Will be back again. Congratulations, the hard work is definitely evident.

Five stars

We booked a single night to celebrate a birthday. What an exceptional stay. We booked a superior room. It was a good size, very clean and well resourced with all the usual accoutrements that you might expect; fresh milk on request (appreciated). The en-suite was compact but good use was made of the space and it did not feel small in any way. Very good shower and luxury toiletries. The breakfast was of an excellent standard with fresh orange juice that really was fresh, grilled breakfast with high quality bacon and sausages, and eggs done to my request. Car parking is on-street but the hotel has thought of how to help you with this so just ask. The staff were charming throughout our all too short stay. It really is a five star establishment. Highly recommended.

Amazing” 

We stayed for a couple of nights for leisure. The Grafton is a fabulous place. Awesome staff. Spotlessly clean. Walking distance to the centre. Breakfast was incredible with I my the best ingredients being used. Freshly squeezed orange too! Brilliant find. Thank you so much for a relaxing time.

 Guest Feedback

Excellent stay

The Grafton is a central location but quiet. Our room (12) was lovely, modern and clean. Mark and team were great. The breakfast was excellent, good quality ingredients and service. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again and/or recommend to anyone staying in Harrogate.

Overnight stop off

Treated my boyfriend for his birthday, and wasn’t disappointed in my choice, location is good with only a short walk to the main places and the street is really quiet. Looking forward to more stays in the future.

Lovely little find

I stayed here with two friends whilst on a girly trip to Harrogate. The hotel was perfect. Clean, well-decorated, friendly staff, great breakfast and close to the centre of Harrogate. All in all a great stay! Would definitely return.

Home away from home

It was a really good stay.
– Given a parking permit to park outside the hotel for free
– Clean room and hotel
– Great breakfast
– Close to town
– Nice decor
Only thing I had was the shower plug hole needed unblocking as it filled with water and I could hear people outside in the corridor but very minor things.
Overall it’s a great boutique B&B hotel!

 Guest Feedback

 “Fantastic boutique hotel. Highly recommend. ”

My husband booked a surprise night away for my bday to The Grafton. On arrival we were met by the very pleasant owner and shown to our room. We had room 3. Wow. It was gorgeous. Fantastic decor, large and roomy with sofa and seating area but most of all spotless. Even the bathroom. The bed was comfortable, tea and coffee, iron, large tv. The location is quiet and less than ten mins walk into town. The breakfast is the best I’ve had in a hotel. Not fatty, bacon nicely done, variety of cereals, pastries and hubby tells me the walnut home made bread is delicious. The hotel is decorated to high spec and spotless. The staff were very friendly and helpful, with recommendation of an Indian restaurant which was fantastic. All in all a wonderful experience and would highly recommend.

“Luxurious 5* Stay”

We picked The Grafton Boutique B&B for an overnight after a quick search on Trip Advisor.

I have to say this establishment is fantastic and a real touch of luxury. Check in is from 3 but as we wanted to spend the day exploring Harrogate, so we just parked the car near the hotel and walked the short distance into town. Parking permits are required during the week (provided by the owners) but on weekends there are no parking restrictions.

The B&B is well located and it took us less than ten minutes to walk into the heart of Harrogate. We checked in around 4pm which was quick and easy. The whole place is spotless and we were directed to our room (room 6) on the second floor. The room itself is well appointed with a comfy bed, large wardrobe, full size chest of drawers, bedside tables and a dressing table. There are plenty of lighting options and an abundance of plugs. The ensuite bathroom was compact but plenty of room to move about freely. A hairdryer is supplied in the room so it’s one less thing to pack and there are plugs next to the dressing table with a large mirror above. The bathroom mirror is lit so it made doing my make up much easier and there’s also a full length mirror in the room.

It’s the little touches that make The Grafton worthy of its five stars: the soap dish provided next to the sink; the spotlight above the power shower; White Company toiletries; good quality coffee and biscuits on the hospitality tray; and bottles of water. We requested an iron and ironing board and the owner very kindly delivered one to our room.

Breakfast is served between 8 and 930 and there is a wide choice of cereals, fruit, yogurts and fresh juices to help yourself to. They also cook hot food to order. We chose the full grilled breakfast and beans on toast with poached eggs. The food was served piping hot and was extremely tasty. As well as tea and filter coffee, you can also request decaf coffee and herbal teas.

Our whole experience at The Grafton was very pleasant. We felt well looked after and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will definitely return to this hotel in the future and I highly recommend it.

 “Mini Break for 50th!”

For my partner’s 50th birthday we planned a trip to Harrogate and wanted to find somewhere special to stay. We chose The Grafton on the strength of the many positive reviews it had received on Trip Advisor. Our room was the Superior Large Double (room 16), which overlooks a quiet residential street. The hotel is no more than a 10 minute stroll into the centre. Our room was spotless and felt luxurious and the bed is huge and extremely comfortable! Breakfast is served between 8.00am – 9.30am and the choices are plentiful with one of the best veggie cooked breakfasts we’ve had. A bottle of chilled prosecco in our room (requested) kicked off our wonderful stay at the Grafton and we will definitely be returning!

“Best veggie breakfast we have ever had!”

“What a lovely place – walking distance to the main part of town, lovely rooms, friendly and warm welcome. Breakfast really was amazing – we had the veggie breakfast and it genuinely was the best one he have had! Would definitely stay again – was very clean and loved the contemporary feel. “Fabulous boutique B and B!”

“We arrived after a horrendous journey up the A1 to a very friendly welcome at the Grafton. Situated in a quiet street but only a short walk from the town centre, it is in an ideal position. The hotel provides a map of Harrogate, which is very useful. Our room (3) was a superior double and it was lovely. It was beautifully furnished with a king sized bed and a large sofa. The en-suite bathroom had a bath with overhead shower, lovely thick bath towels and a fantastic illuminated mirror. There are tea and coffee making facilities (and nice biscuits!). Robes and slippers were also available as well as a hairdryer and ironing board. The owners have thought of everything to make guests really comfortable. Breakfast is served between 8 and 9.30am with lots of choice as well as a range of cooked options. Our breakfast was delicious with really good coffee. The staff are delightful and keen to ensure guests are happy. The hotel also has a bar open until 11pm. Parking is on the street- the hotel provides parking permits for guests, as it is restricted to 3 hours in the daytime during the week. We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay and have booked another visit. Highly recommended! “Super little hotel”

“Very clean. Excellent service. Beautifully appointed room with The White Company toiletries. Large en-suite. Good lighting and electrical sockets, which is quite rare in a U.K. Hotel. Lovely breakfast with good choice. Quiet location, about 10 minutes walk to town. Good easy parking.”

 “Super little hotel”

Very clean. Excellent service. Beautifully appointed room with The White Company toiletries. Large en suite. Good lighting and electrical sockets, which is quite rare in a U.K. Hotel. Lovely breakfast with good choice. Quiet location, about 10 minutes walk to town. Good easy parking.

“Fantastic Hotel”

This is a superb hotel with lovely staff.
Stayed for 2 nights. The room was huge as was the bed. Lovely décor, and fantastic grilled breakfast. Staff were so helpful. Lovely and quiet overnight, excellent shower and even bathrobes. Staff give you a parking permit for your stay as no car park. Great location for the conference centre and about a 15 minute walk to the main shops.
Would highly recommend.

“Faultless ”

Friendly, helpful and efficient staff, lovely room, delicious breakfast. Spotless throughout with lots of thoughtful extra touches. I really couldn’t fault the place and I’m pretty fussy! Top quality accommodation.

November in Harrogate

The start of November has definitely brought winter with it this year. As the temperature drops, fortunately, Harrogate has maintained its charm. Spoilt for choice, Harrogate offers spectacular scenery both inside our small town and out. In the heart of Yorkshire, we are only a stones throw away from the Yorkshire Dales and all the beauty that it beholds. As well as an abundance of restaurants, shops and cafes Harrogate never fails to disappoint rain or shine. At The Grafton we offer affordable and luxurious accommodation, with one of the best breakfasts in Harrogate. We take pride in our great facilities and friendly service, making The Grafton the most desirable and comfortable place for your stay this November.

Guest Feedback

Here are a few comments from guest who have stayed with us over the past month.

 “Perfect”

We stayed at the Grafton for three nights for a short break. We had a double room and we were really impressed by the high standard of the B&B.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were absolutely spotless, nicely decorated and furnished and tidied daily. The showers were powerful and hot! The choice and quality of the breakfast was impressive. The neighbourhood where the B&B is situated is very quiet and just a 10 minute walk to Harrogate centre. There was plenty of on road parking and, when we checked in, we were presented with a parking ticket to display in the windscreen. We had a lovely three night stay at The Grafton and would definitely return if we revisited Harrogate. Highly recommended!

“Brilliant”

Wonderful B&B, fantastic bed, tasty breakfast with loads of choice. Can’t fault this place. Wonderful staff who were attentive and polite. Great location in walking distance from Harrogate. Loads of restaurants close by and close to the theatre.

“Excellent standard throughout”

Very comfortable rooms, excellent facilities and breakfast was a real treat. Couldn’t fault the accommodation. The staff were so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Parking is a little tight but you get a parking permit so that you can park on the road outside.

What’s On in Harrogate this November?

There is always plenty to see and do in Harrogate and November is no exception as there is definitely something for everyone.

Guest Feedback

Here are a few comments from guest who have stayed with us over the past month.

“Very pleasant stay”

Lovely Guest house just over half a mile from the centre. Quiet area, hotel and room. Very good breakfast with large selection all made to order. Parking on the street is free with a parking permit from the hotel. Bottled water is included in you room with a good selection of coffee, teas and hot chocolate. I would happily stay there again.

“An excellent B&B !”

We have just returned from a couple of nights stay here and were totally bowled over with the quality of the B&B. The room was spotless and food lovely. It certainly deserves 5☆ as is genuinely friendly, welcoming, clean and with helpful staff and manager. We recommend staying here for all your visits to Harrogate due to all the above and as is only a 5-10 minute walk to the city centre or 2 min drive. We are definitely staying again if bookings allow!

“Cracking B&B”

Had 2 nights here mid week and full marks to The Grafton; puts a lot of hotels to shame. Very clean, beautifully decorated and good location. Breakfast excellent with plenty of choice and high quality.
