Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Located on a tree-lined street, The Balmoral Hotel in the spa town of Harrogate is a Victorian York-stone property set among pretty gardens and topiary. The original owner was reputedly a chef to the Queen Mother, which gave the hotel its name.

The property is less than a mile from Montpelier Hill -- known for its independent cafés and restaurants, and also a number of antique shops and Sotheby's auction houses -- the Victoria Shopping Centre and Betty’s Tea Rooms. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a 20-minute drive.

Leather Chesterfields and chandeliers sit alongside this boutique hotel’s Victorian fireplaces and period features, creating “opulent interiors” (The Guardian). There’s complimentary parking on site and a cocktail bar, which also has an outside terrace.

All rooms have free Wi-Fi, while the Superior Rooms and Suites feature king-size or 4-poster beds. Full English breakfast is included in the rate.

Enjoyed Most: Yes, it was a little treat for my mum and she enjoyed it. The good things outweighed the bad. The staff were very helpful.
Other Comments: Waited 45 mins (until 3.45) until room ready. Had a cream tea and scones were stale. Hotel is a little "tired".

Enjoyed Most: The cream tea and smoked salmon at breakfast.
Other Comments: We were disappointed that we had to ask several times for the bottle of proseco which was supposed to have been in our room on arrival and the broken blind was not mentioned until we pointed it out. However, we did find all the staff very pleasant.

Enjoyed Most: The most friendly staff, from chamber maid to manager.
Other Comments: The bed was extremely hard and Mrd now has a bad back. Breakfast was very nice and location close to centre.

Other Comments: This was a fantastic deal. We were blown away with the room, four poster bed, fabulous bathroom, prosecco in an ice bucket for our arrival. Afternoon tea one of the best we have had. The staff couldn't be more helpful, when we came down late for breakfast (by half an hour, I had misread the last breakfast time) a table was set and we were even given a choice of cooked breakfasts. We have been raving about it to friends since we got back.
