Why we love The Harrogate Spa - DoubleTree by Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel & Spa

In the famous historic spa town of Harrogate, this stylish hotel combines the best of heritage and modern style. Here are just a few of the reasons we love it.

Historic on the outside - modern on the inside

Harrogate is a beautiful, historic town, so it's fitting that the DoubleTree by Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel & Spa is set within a palatial red brick property with an inherent sense of history. On the inside however, it's all modern hospitality with fresh finishes and everything you need - even chocolate chip cookies in your room.

Fab food

Yorkshire is no stranger to culinary excellence. After all, this is the home of Yorkshire puddings and excellent tea. The hotel's restaurants continue that tradition, with Carters Champagne Bar & Grill open all day, and Frederick's Piano Lounge serving up superb lunches and afternoon teas. There's even a DJ in residence most Friday and Saturday evenings, so you can extend the experience late into the night.

Spa tradition

Harrogate has a rich history of restorative treatments going back over 200 years, when the Victorians delighted in its health-giving natural springs. Today that heritage remains strong and The Harrogate Spa honours it with its own offering. Favourite features include a Spa Terrace and Zen Garden, complete with a 10-person hot tub enjoying views of the town's skyline.

Therapy goals

Naturally, the therapeutic experience wouldn't be complete without a treatment or two, and offering the full spectrum of holistic face and body therapies, the spa has six treatment rooms and a relaxation lounge. Working with ESPA, Thalgo, Carita, Jessica and Mii products for head-to-toe pampering.

A perfect location

Last, but certainly not least, the hotel's location couldn't be much better. Set in tranquil grounds it's just a short walk from the centre of Harrogate itself. Spend time exploring shops and restaurants (not least, Betty's Tea Room), or travel around the surrounding area to Ripley Castle, RHS Harlow Carr and the beautiful Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden.
