My husband and I moved to Harrogate in 2007 from Leeds. I think
I may be safe to say that we are the first Sikh Hoteliers in
this beautiful spa town of Harrogate and very proud to be a part
of it. Even though neither my husband and I come from a
hospitality background we do have vast customer service
To be honest at the beginning this was
nothing like what we had done before and have had our moments
with getting the right balance. I think as I've been told by
many of our regular guests I need to believe in myself more and
then everything will come together. I think I can safely say it
Though we have refurbished all our rooms with new modern fitting
bathrooms and tastefully decorated each room individually, as you
can appreciate it is never ending. There is always something to do.
Recently we had the fireplace in the dining room stripped back to
when the house was built exposing the original brick but yet have to
complete it with a burner that I can't find. Then we've started the
work in the hallway but now I don't know what to do with
it...there's still the double glazing for the two large bay windows!
So, you know we do keep up with the house and though all refurbs end
up with me throwing a few wobblies with my other half it eventually
gets done and it's always a fab job!
My first breakfast, what
a cracker! I managed to drop at least ten eggs before
successfully cooking a poached egg, I was that nervous. Now I'm
a dab hand at it though I tend to serve and my husband cooks. We
pride ourselves on breakfast. Even though the cooked Full
English is popular we do cater for vegetarians and any other
dietary requirement. In fact during the BIGGA Conference in
January our spicy omelette with chillies and onions was
popular.So nothing is impossible. Furthermore, all our produce
is sourced locally, we support local businesses.
We are a
family business and our aim together is for all our guests to
feel comfortable and special whilst staying with us. Obviously
we are not always going to get it right so rely on you to tell
us on the things we can improve on.
We hope you can join
us soonTabs and Pritpal
