About Us

Meet the team at Harrogate Stays

"You're Welcome"

The whole team is passionate about ensuring our guests have the most fantastic stay and we all have a role to play.



Rob is the co-founder of Harrogate Stays and is self-appointed the brains of the whole operation. Cool and calm are his character traits, he loves systems and ensuring the whole process runs smoothly. With a history as an IT consultant, Rob is a dab hand when it comes to spreadsheets and formulas. 



Mark is also co-founder of Harrogate Stays and is at heart, very much a people person. Following a successful career in the Royal Air Force as a Tornado Navigator, he’s adopted a more family-focused ‘slower-lane’, although at one stage, with 3 children under 25 months, it very much felt like the afterburners were still in.



Nikola is responsible for guest communications pre and post your stay with us. Always striving to maintain her quick response time, Nikola also has a very young family and enjoys the flexibility of being able to communicate on the go and not being tied to an office desk.



Jeni works alongside Mark with the marketing and operational side of Harrogate Stays. In the unlikely event, you encounter any issues during your stay, these will be flagged to Jeni and quickly resolved and managed accordingly. Following a successful career in events, Jeni can also liaise with guests for any bespoke arrangements you may have, especially for weddings and larger group bookings.



‘Super Sue’ as she is affectionately known is one of the loveliest people you will ever meet. Sue is the House Manager at Fountains Guest House and works tirelessly to ensure our impeccable standards of cleanliness are maintained. Sue will also more than likely be serving breakfast if you do stay with us at Fountains Guest House.



As House Manager at The Belmont, Monika runs a very tight ship to ensure everything runs smoothly and the newly refurbished Belmont stays fresh for many months and years to come. As the Belmont is a self-service Aparthotel, you might not see Monika but if you do, don’t forget to say ‘Hello’. 



When it comes to having his photo taken, Glenn is very shy. However, when it comes to rustling up a full English Breakfast with eggs and bacon cooked just the way you like, Glenn will not fail to deliver. Glenn works weekdays at Fountains Guest House freeing up the weekend to watch Leeds United.



Fantastic by name, Fantastic by nature. Beth joins us at Fountains at the weekends and is passionate about creating fresh, vibrant & colourful food that’s full of flavour but subtle and refined on the palate. With a role as a freelance chef, Beth can also create bespoke meals upon request and subject to availability for any large group bookings you may have.
