We have just enjoyed a wonderful 2 day stay at the Poplars in the Heriot Cottage. Beautifully decorated, furnished and spotlessly clean. Fantastic breakfast which filled us up for the day. Amanda is a wonderful host. Thank Amanda for accommodating or last minute change in needs. Would recommend this place to stay withoit hesitation.

What a lovely place to stay, very clean and fresh. Our room was on the ground floor with our own entrance and conservatory to sit in, (which we did). The family were very welcoming and treated us like one of their own. Amanda, who runs it, is warm and friendly and helpful, we couldn't believe she had had her second...

My husband and I stayed here with my grandson for a trip to Lightwater Valley. Having stayed in many hotels, we stumbled upon this one totally by accident . We normally stay at a well know hotel in Harrogate however they did not have the courtesy to call us back as promised so we searched and up popped The Poplars!...

We only stayed here one night but absolutely loved it. We received a warm welcome on arrival and offered a pot of tea and cake, which was lovely. We stayed in the Wensleydale room, which was on the ground floor and had a conservatory next to it so we sat in there drinking tea and overlooking the garden. The bedroom...

Having stayed here many times it's always good to come back. The cottage we stayed in have been recently updated with a new kitchen and bathroom. It's in an excellent location to get out and enjoy the best of North Yorkshire. Amanda looks after us incredibly well and always recommends places to visit.

I booked the Polars because it's obviously a high quality guesthouse. My husband and I were travelling south from Scotland when we were involved in a very nasty road traffic accident. Amidst all the chaos of Police and Fire Brigade arriving my husband thought he'd better phone and let the guesthouse know it was unlikely we would be arriving that...

Really sadened to read this review... I was called at 5pm on a friday night by the guest to inform me that they had been involved in an accident, and that they thought it unlikely they would be able to continue with their journey and were going to be going home. Unfortunately what the guests have failed to share in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Poplars, originally a farm house, built in 1901, is an impressive detached property with far reaching grounds. Set within an acre of gardens, the Poplars Rooms are all accessed via their own private entrance, affording you the privacy usually associated with a larger hotel, whilst offering our guests the personal touches and attention to detail from a small family owned Bed & Breakfast. Ideally located for access to all major routes ( A1, A61 & A19) as well as being only 250m from the train station, The Poplars is an ideal base for business or pleasure. All rooms are exceptionally well equipped with all the comforts you would expect from a quality driven establishment; Freeview TV, Power Shower, Free WIFI, Bathrobes, Mineral Water and Tea & Coffee facilities, make for those extra special touches. A great night's sleep, complimented by a fantastic breakfast..... Bed & Breakfast as it should be. ... more   less
