Peter had a guided walk map and even though the article was 10 years old, we found it was accurate. Only at the end did we need to make a slight adjustment to get back to the car. The scenery, as always, was beautiful. This time of year the morrland is monotone and nothing is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Majestic Hotel Harrogate
If you love brand new, sparkling decor then the Majestic isn't for you.
But it does have: great food, friendly and attentive staff, good bedroom facilities (and clean), a great location with parking, a lovely swimming pool.
We had a lovely one night stay, with dinner and can't recommend it highly enough. The high point was definitely the food - superb quality and service by the restaurant staff (and breakfast was good too).
It's worth a visit to see the marble clad walls and pillars of the interior, and the wonderful chandeliers - it's like stepping back into a different age.
In all, I'd definitely stay again and would have no hesitation in recommending for others.
Lovely hotel - lived up to it's name.
Just returned from a wekkend break in the Majestic.
It truly lived up to it's name. It is absolutely fabulous. So grand and elegant.
The room was an excellent size and very light and airy. It was all absolutely spotless.
the staff were all very friendly and really couldn't do enough for you. The leisure facilities were very good. The pool is quite small but it does the job. It is approx 5 minutes to walk to the centre of the town from the hotel. The breakfast choice was excellent and the chef was present at the hot buffet to cook everything as needed. We didn't have dinner in the hotel but the table d'hote menu looked lovely and only £17.50 for 3 courses.
I would definitely stay here again.
The hotel was shabby, unclean, foisty and unflexible, I would rate the hotel nothing more than a 2 star bed and breakfast. The very dated decor brought on one of my headaches, it was a nightmare, not to mention the deposit that was left in the toilet that was by no way recent, and the stained, foisty towels, they were so rough I could have used them as a brilo pad. The hotel offered nothing other than a bed and I was astonished that we had to pay to stay there, they should have paid us. There was 1 bar which was so smokey we moved to another area and we were the only 4 there in a room approx 150ft long so much wasted space it is astonishing, The hotel had nothing at all to offer and I wouldnt recommend anyone staying there. Although I do have to say the food and service in the dinning room was quite good. To top everything we even had to pay £2.50 for parking even though there was no space.
What can I say? I will not be staying at the Majestic when next I visit Harrogate! The Majestic was indeed a fine hotel when it was built over 100 years ago, however its original standards have not been kept. The hotel is quite shabby (unfortunately not 'shabby chic'!) the paint work is nicotine stained, the curtains in my room were torn and my companion complained of a 'foisty smell'! Don't get me wrong I am a great lover all things traditional and collect antiques myself, but the place just seemed to be living on past reputation. When we stayed there were two wedding receptions held at the hotel and it was fully booked. Unfortunatly this left hotel geusts who were not attending a wedding with the option of one smoky bar, alot of large empty rooms to sit in or bed! One member of staff suggested I find someone who would play the piano in the hallway!!!!! On the whole the staff were very pleasant and polite. Harrogate its self saved the day and a good time was eventually had when the rain stopped and we checked out of the hotel!
Quality time and food
Stopped for two nights on a DBB basis (offers on jan/feb).
Room was large and spotless giving exellent views across harrogate, bathroom was immaculate.
Evening meals were excellent and the service 1st class, breakfast was also very good.
It is obviousley a large imposing hotel undergoing restoration work, but we will use again (especially when offers on !!)
We stayed at the Majestic for one night during a trade fair in July 2004. The hotel was being used as part of the fair and therefore was extremely busy and every available public space was taken up by exhibitors. Our room was large, airy and clean (although nobody had vacumned under the bed). The bathroom was spotless.
We recently stayed at The Majestic and thought it was a wonderful hotel that positively oozed with opulence. We stayed in a standard double room and while it was not luxuriously appointed it had everything you need and most importantly was clean and tidy.
We spent a night in a double room in May 2004. It was a corner room overlooking the courtyard and in DESPERATE need of refurbishment. The desk looked as if someone had tried to demolish it with a hammer. The bathroom (especially the bathtub and its surroundings) were covered in scummy black stains and limescale. The shower curtain pole was completely rusty. But the worst thing was that the room had not been cleaned properly. There was a large, suspicious looking stain on the bed cover, and there were little bits of rubbish on the floor, which indicated that it had not been vacuumed for a while. The reception staff gave us no information when we checked in (e.g. check-out time, breakfast) and when I enquired about bicycle hire in Harrogate they seemed completely out of their depth and came up with no information at all. One of them remarked that "it's the kind of thing you'd do on holiday isn't it? Like Greece or something." It obviously had not occurred to him that someone staying at the hotel might actually BE on holiday! The duty manager agreed to knock £10 off our bill in the morning, but this hardly compensated for this thoroughly unpleasant experience. I may also add that there was an enormous queue at check-out (the hotel was full and the reception only has two positions), which meant that we missed our train to York and had to wait an extra two hours. How does this place justify its four star rating?
Very nice place
Stayed here for business recently. A very nice, grand old hotel that was modernized sometime during my lifetime. They have an indoor pool and gym which are above average, and breakfast was great too. Centrally located and an easy walk to downtown Harrogate. Would recommend.
Still Harrogate's best
This enormous red-brick Victorian hotel overlooks the town centre, has a welcoming atmosphere and retains its reputation as Harrogate's best.
Spacious, high-ceilinged bedrooms. Choice of restaurants, with good food (and a particularly good breakfast). Good leisure facilities, with swimming pool and gym. 12 acres of gardens, with tennis courts and large car park. Extremely convenient for International Conference Centre. Recommended.
