More about Saint George Hotel
Now't wrong with the George!
Having read the other reviews and got a preferential booking rate, we arrived with low expectations. The staff were friendly and the hotel has a comfortable feel with a wiff of decaying grandure - I hope to decay with equal grace. Facilities were excellent, we had two good swims and a sauna in the health club (towels provided). Slightly confused by the sign on the sauna asking me not to shave(!?). Breakfast was infinate, served buffet style. We didnt eat in the restaurant prefering Joe Rigatony next door (very good food at reasonable price - local twists like ciabatta served with butter not oil), noticed all local women dress up fully to go out, we felt very scruffy in comparison) Room very comfortable, no tea facilities in room, bed good, shower great. We had a family room with bunks in a cupboard - shame we couldnt lock the kids in, but nothings perfect . Highly recommended - say Nicola (Mrs Pie) sent you.
A nice Hotel with all the attractions nearby.
A good traditional English Hotel in a lovely town. Rooms were a bit dated and the bathrooms could do with a bit of updating/money spent, but the staff were friendly and the car parking problem was solved with its own small private car park at the rear.
Ten minutes walk to the town centre shops with plenty of good pubs nearby. Next door to the Conference Centre and the Spa style baths.
Excellent location for all amenities
Stayed at the St George for 2 nights 20-22 April 2007 and thought it was a lovely hotel - a bit dated in places but otherwise very nice.
Excellent leisure club facilities. Having stayed at another hotel in Harrogate previously which didn't have on-site facilites, I booked this hotel on purpose because it had them.
Excellent location right at the bottom on the main street in Harrogate. Couldn't have asked for a better hotel really. Definitely recommend it!
One night stay on Business. Good clean rooms with comfortable double beds.
All staff helpful, courteous and attentive. It also has a leisure club with Pool which I did not use.
A full Continental & English Breakfast was brought to my room by a team of staff for only £2.50!
Car Parking at rear, looked after by Parking attendent, thus ensuring you get to park and stay!
We stayed here on a overnight stop with our two children, who got a bunk bed in an alcove. We were on a first floor room which overlooked a busyish street, so got to hear all the buses drive by. The room itself was in need of updating. Wallpaper was peeling and the double bed was incredibly lumpy.
I was mainly disappointed because the hotel seemed to be aiming for a higher standard. It has a good location - across from the conference centre and down the street from Betty's tea rooms. They just could do better!
had a nice stay here
We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2007. We got a last minute bargain dinner, bed and breakfast deal that was very cheap. Because of the price we weren't expecting too much but were quite pleasantly surprised. This is an old fashioned looking hotel. Yes, it probably could do with a bit of a paint and spruce up here and there, it's not the most luxurious hotel ever but we had a lovely stay here.
The location is excellent, right in the city centre close to shops, tearooms, bars , restaurants and a lovely park. We had huge room with a big bay window looking out to the Turkish Baths. The food in the restaurant could not be complained about at all. The staff were friendly and helpful, especially in the leisure club.
It had a nice pool, jacuzzi and sauna/steam room. Very relaxing.
If you are looking for a good base with nice food and a pool I would recommend here.
Not all its cracked up to be
Arrived on the Saturday afternoon tired only to be greeted by an extremely full car park. Booked into the hotel and was given our room. The main room was big and spacious and decently decorated, however upon entering the bathroom was totally disappointed, wallpaper falling of the walls, shower curtain barely hanging, bathroom light did not work, toilet roll holder broken. we complained and was shown an alternative room which was pokier and bathroom still not great. Reception were unhelpful and seemed disinterested, we kept original room purely for the space. Main public areas were garish in decor and had an old food smell constantly, they had the audacity to charge £100 pounds per night.
I would not revisit this hotel and the pictures appear inaccurate.
room needs decorating
It was one of only two hotels in Harrogate with availability this night, so bearing that in mind, a bit unfair to complain;but, stained wallpaper from a leak above, cramped room with sloping ceiling over the bed, it could do with a tarting up. Bathroom tired and 70's looking. Breakfast great though and the down stairs rooms fine. Could not get near the bar in the evening as full of chaps from the exhibition that was on at the time.....
This must be the worst hotel I have stayed in, the room was small, dirty and dated. The little man in charge of the waitressess for the evening function was really rude to us in front of other paying guests. All in all dont book this hotel until it is refurbished. At the moment I feel they only get booking due to proximity of the exhibition halls. I coundn't imagine who would want to go back there!
Not the most modern, but very pleasant indeed
Don't expect a flash new hotel, but the service, cleanliness and relaxing environment certainly make up for it.
The rooms were clean, and perfectly adequate, the food was of a very high quality and the staff well mannered.
Was a little disappointed with the room service, but I guess that is hubby's fault for getting snackish after 10pm!
It's not a very family-oriented hotel, but if you're a couple looking for quality and quiet - I'd say you've found the place.
