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.
