The hotel is packed with stunning period features, including revolving doors and polished wooden floors, combines Victorian splendour with elegant contemporary style. One of the most famous hotels in Harrogate thanks to its romantic past. Once a popular spa, it was the hideaway haven for crime queen, Agatha Christie, when she famously disappeared in 1926.  In winter, you can cosy up in front of the roaring fire in the lobby. There are elegant reception rooms, including the magnificent Wedgwood restaurant, with its original glass ceiling, or the Swan Lounge & Bar, where you can relax overlooking the lawns and views of the town centre.
