In the heart of Yorkshire Harrogate has an abundance of restaurants, cafes, gardens and only a train ride away from both Leeds and York. The Grafton is only a short walk from the centre of Harrogate allowing you to enjoy every aspect of our beautiful spa town, whether you are visiting Harrogate for business or pleasure. 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 enticing place to be this April.
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.
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.
