Historical Traveler Reviews Kimberley Hotel Harrogate
Liked the small details - guest sausage, wide range of jams and the postcard whe
very friendly hotel - let me go to the room even though I was early. Excellent breakfast including a daily variety of guest breakfast. Even sent a post card when I got home. I am already booking for the Lib Dem Confernence 2007 as its so much better value than the big hotel next door - and they dont charge for the car park either!!
Just come back from a wonderful weekend in Harrogate. I booked the Kimberly based on the reviews for this hotel and how pleased am i??.... very it was lovley. We stayed in an executive suite which was huge, the bed was enormous and so comfy, complimentary wine was left in our room with the usual tea, coffee facilities etc, 2 fluffy dressing gowns were laid out on the bed along with complimentary chocolates on our pillows. The whole place is spotless the staff are well trained which is excellent. The breakfast was just fantastic the best i have every had in a hotel. I ve not been home 24 hours yet and im online booking for another weekend next month.
If you are looking for a hotel in the centre of Harogate, that is total value for money, then look no further than this place.
The Kimberley was the choice for me when I wanted to take the girlfriend away for a romantic weekend. For some reason I overlooked this place on my first scout around on the internet.. but I'm glad I didn't miss it in the end.
It's spitting distance away from the centre, it's clean, its well equipped, has a bar, breakfast is great and the people who look after extremely polite and helpful.
I opted for the more expensive executive room - as I wasn't a fan of the decor in the standard rooms. The exec rooms are £30 pounds extra, but well worth it.
In the morning you get a little note pushed under your door telling you who is on duty, breakfast times, local weather, any traffic delays and a brief summary of what is going on in Harrogate. I even got a postcard from them this morning saying thankyou and that they hope we had a good time. It's little things like that that make me want to return there next year.
Finally, car parking is safe. I don't think there is anyone who more protective of their car than me, and I felt happy parking around the back of the hotel.
Everything you need...with a smile
I agree with the good reviews. It's a great hotel, clean well sized rooms, good value for money, friendly staff, great breakfast. Oh and the bar was handy!
However, if you do go for an executive room then be prepared to lose your partner in the bed as it was massive!
Excellent value for a pleasant hotel!
I booked several rooms at the Kimberley via a cheap-online booking service, as several of my friends were coming to Harrogate for the weekend.
The rooms were so cheap (55 GBP for a twin, with two breakfasts) that I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised!
Situated a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Harrogate, near the Conference Centre, the Kimberley is in a quiet and pleasant location, and offers free car parking.
The staff are friendly, and the rooms - despite being a variety of shapes and sizes - are also clean and modern, with huge bathrooms and excellent showers.
The hotel bar is quiet and a good place to relax with a drink after normal closing time in the centre of town.
One of the most surprising aspects of the hotel was the splendid cooked breakfast. It was a buffet-style affair, with a vast array of excellent sausages, bacon, eggs, fresh toast, fresh fruit and many other treats; all washed down with a steaming pot of good coffee.
After my stay, I was susprised to receive a hand-written postcard from the hotel, hoping that I had a pleasant stay.
If you are staying in Harrogate on a budget, or want a "Late Room," I would definitely advise booking one of their cheap internet deals.
Best breakfast in the UK!
We were delighted to check into this lovely, conveniently located hotel. The room was large, spotless and well-equipped. The bathroom was also large and provided hot water aplenty -- a real treat after two weeks of tiny guest house baths! The staff was very helpful. But the best part was, without doubt, the buffet full English breakfast, including with such unexpected treats as kippers, fresh fruit galore -- even kiwi, strawberries and blueberries to our surprise -- and, if you can believe it, HOT toast. There are a wide variety of affordable restaurants within view of the hotel, making it easy to find a place for dinner on a Sunday night.
We booked two days before arrival, via an online late rooms booking service, and got a family room with breakfasts for three for less than 80GBP. Even at the regular rate of 150 GBP for a family room, though, this would be a great stop.
Lovely hotel in an excellent location. We stayed here on business and also hired a conference room. We found the staff to be extremely accomodating and friendly. The food was lovely and freshly prepared, the chef was more than happy to meet any special requests for the buffet lunches.
Hotels rooms were a decent size and very clean, in particular the bathroom was of a high standard.
Highly recommended to visitors on business or pleasure.
Good B&B with a homely feel
Visited 6th July 2004. This hotel is just down the road from the centre, shops, bars, restaurants and the famous harrogate baths. Harrogate is a lovely town. The hotel appears to once have been an old house which has been converted, so all rooms are slightly different, and decorated in keeping with the style of the place (high ceilings and bold print wallpaper!) Bathroom was pretty large and equipped with little shampoos, shower caps etc. We upgarded to an executive room for an extra £10 when we arrived, the other normal rooms we saw were quite a bit smaller. Breakfast good. Friendly and helpful staff. Overall a nice little place to stay.
Excellent Location, great service.
This was a last minute deal from the internet for us and it really was good value for money. The room was immaculate and a nice size with a really trendy bathroom and a fancy shower! Our window looked out on to the top of a roof which wasnt so great but it really didnt matter. The only reservation we really had was there was no 'big light' as such in the room, just lots of lamps and mirror lights which was a bit of a problem at times but nothing major. Also in our particular room the light from the corridor outside was coming in under the door at night, again though not such a big deal. The staff were really helpful and the breakfast was brilliant, lots of choice to suit everyones diet requirements. The hotel is in a fantastic location, nice and peaceful but literally two minutes from the International Centre and a five minute walk into the town centre. Overall a lovely hotel, very very clean and smart and very friendly with a wonderful location. We would stay again.
Good location, good service!
Found this hotel on the internet, and was very impressed! VERY good location, just a 5 minute stroll from the Exhibition centre and the great shopping area.
Found a cheap last-minute weekend deal (£57 per night for a double room) which included a superb full English breakfast.
Our room was of a decent standard, although it was right next to the reception desk (so quite noisy) and had no view from the window at all (but what do you expect for the money?).
Staff very friendly. I'd recommend this hotel!

... the Shambles and behind the facades of the shops. Apart from the very strong wind it was worth the climb. We visited the Chapter House with its seven stained glass windows and beautiful flooring. I even managed to spot the one and only 'green man' as I was sitting underneath it. There is a new interactive attraction called the Undercroft, this follows the 2000 year journey of the Minster and is really quite moving especially the section on Resurrection, well ...
The one we have been waiting for! The Ouse has some reputation and needs to be treated with a great deal of respect. It is fast flowing, tidal and not very wide in places for a big river, which then emphasizes the speed of the flow.
John and I go and have a look past the lock to see what is happening with the River and we don't like what we see! How many logs, branches and floating islands do ...
... a "duck weed" issue on the Selby Canal but were surprised on how much there was and how green it was, it didn't look like there was a canal at all, under the luminous green covering.
Selby is a very pleasant small town and we moored in the basin at the junction with the River Ouse, well placed for our for our early set off time with tide on the way up to York ...
We are on the way again after a week at home. John and Vanessa join us at Lemonroyd Lock by the Marina and we head off on the second stage of our summer trip. First stop is Castleford to fill up with diesel, a simple process you might think, just like filling the car!!
Not quite so easy on the boat.
Two hours later after the chap at the Marina who was ...
Camping?? Easter weekend in the UK?? Crazy plan.. Then the snow hit (again) and the campsite cancelled for us.. So what to do instead? Same activities, different location.. Perfect..
You forget what's right there on your doorstep. In this case, Valley Gardens and surrounding woodlands makes for a perfect country walk. 8 of us all wrapped up warm after a huge breakfast (thanks Jo) and we head out. Great scenery and good ...
