In the Montpellier Quarter and just a five-minute walk from the Valley Gardens, this historic Harrogate hotel and apartment building feels fresh and new inside. Rooms spanning entry-level Cosy Doubles to Suites are pared-back, yet pleasing, with smart tartan headboards and striped or spotted soft furnishings. Slate grey bathrooms keep the colour volume low. Be prepared for hearty British food with Yorkshire influences at the Fat Badger restaurant – we recommend the Gressingham confit duck with chocolate fondant and red wine jus.

The interiors – arched beams, bold floral wallpaper, vivid-coloured rugs – all vie for your attention, with the scenic reservoirs and moors of Nidderdale beyond. It’s a must-visit area of outstanding natural beauty, a 10-minute drive from Harrogate. Suites are agreeably spacious, so you can lounge about, giving tired limbs a rest after a day’s hiking in the Dales. All rooms have a terrace on which to sit, drinking in the bucolic view – or a glass of wine. In summer, you might like to enjoy an outdoor breakfast.

Richly coloured fabrics – in shades of chocolate, plum and silver – create a cosy feel in all eight rooms of this attractive townhouse-turned-boutique B&B. The bathrooms are elegant affairs in stone, and family rooms have showers and baths. A totally different scale of bath can be found a four-minute walk away at Harrogate’s historic Turkish Baths, a beguiling mix of Italian mosaic, Islamic arches and Moorish design. It’s well worth a wander during your stay.

Foodies will appreciate a couple of nights at this 15-room establishment, with its soft-hued, leaf-patterned fabrics, smart tartans and fresh metro-tiled showers or freestanding tubs. Seasonal dishes elicit wows in the stylish, chequered-floor restaurant – anyone for Yorkshire pork belly with roast apple, carrot, cabbage and mustard sauce? There’s a flowery terrace for warm days, while the welcoming bar draws drinkers. It’s just 500 metres (1/3mi) to the Royal Pump Room Museum, where you can learn how Harrogate became a spa town.

    This good-looking former coaching inn facing the Stray parkland stands out, with its flower-trimmed white front, turquoise signage – mirrored in the restaurant banquettes – and awning-topped bistro seating. Soft shades of blue and green grace airy bedrooms. Those facing the front have Juliet balconies, and two of the Superior rooms have terraces. When you’re ready to eat, it’s all equally inviting down below – the West Park bar-brasserie is a sociable space where seasonal, local ingredients go into such dishes as beer-battered haddock, chunky chips and mushy peas.

    This vine-covered Victorian grande dame is resplendent with flower-filled hanging baskets, rolling lawns and mature gardens. It has 136 rooms, including 10 suites, some with four-posters swathed in dramatic scarlet fabric – one even can boast a boardroom-cum-dining room. The Wedgwood Restaurant woos diners with its intricate glass ceiling and elegantly formal styling. The food has winning ways with vegan fare, like the char-grilled aubergine steak, plus dishes like braised short rib of beef with fennel for the carnivores. Afterwards, head to the library, which has an ornate stained-glass window.

    With sofas you can sink into, soft, furry bed throws and smart glass tables, these serviced apartments stand out from the competition. They sleep between two and four guests and have glossy, well-kitted out kitchenettes. Hotel-style breakfast can be delivered ahead of your stay. Alternatively, get familiar with Harrogate’s cafes and restaurants – some serve espresso roasted by Yorkshire’s Dark Woods speciality coffee roasters. Shiny bathrooms are stocked with local skincare ranges – a reminder that the Harrogate Turkish Baths are mere footsteps away.
