Very grand hotelPosted Feb 1, 2016
Pros: Location, clean
Cons: More staff at breakfast
Although staff were friendly I did not feel very welcome as the building was intimidating and the breakfast room was too busy

Not a majestic stay.Posted Dec 31, 2015
The hotel looks amazing from the front and the entrance hall is very impressive. A standard double room was disappointingly dull. A plain room with a hospital looking bed which was too small and very uncomfortable. A smoke alarm that flashed above the pillows all night disturbing our uncomfortable sleep. The wallpaper was peeling and every metal surface in the bathroom was rusty.

Disappointing stayPosted Nov 22, 2015
Cons: The reception staff
Room smelled of paint so had to have windows open in winter. Scaffolding outside- gave myself and the decorator a shock when I came out of the bathroom naked! I was not warned that building works would be carried out early in the morning or I would have kept my curtains drawn( being on the 4th floor- privacy wouldn't normally be an issue!) A plug in radiator in the room which smelled of burnt dust when used, no other form of heating. I had arranged for someone to collect a very important parcel from reception. They had to come on 4 separate occasions before they received the item. The receptionist who took the parcel went off duty and didn't label up or pass the details onto the new reception staff. It took 5 phone calls to get this sorted! Breakfast staff were efficient and polite and breakfast was faultless. Ate in the bar one evening but they forgot 2 main parts of the meal so that by the time the missing items appeared the food was cold. Wouldn't go back to this hotel. I stayed at the holiday Inn before and will return there when I visit harrogate again.

Well Situated hotelPosted Nov 1, 2015
Cons: More staff
Location: Location good,shopping & Dining
Our stay was pleasant although the weather was not.Our first visit to Harrogate & The Majestic did not disappoint.On checking in we were told that we were upgraded,the room was lovely,clean & quite big though not as big as our friends,they had not been upgraded.We had lovely white bathrobes & slippers (they did not). Breakfast was buffet & very good although we waited quite awhile for tea& coffee. In parts the hotel is very tired in places & need more staff as there was waiting at the bar as well as breakfast

Tired hotelPosted Oct 28, 2015
having booked a premier double room I was genuinely shocked at the small size. It was very cramped and didnt match the what I have come to expect from the price that was paid. A very lack lustre experience.

Exceptional restaurant staffPosted Oct 23, 2015 on Hotels
Restaurant staff have been brilliantly trained to deliver exceptional service. Room on the 4th floor a little tired but never had such immediate hot water!
