Our Team


The Best of Brothers

Brothers Rob & Mark Hodgkiss own and manage Fountains Guest House as part of their wider Harrogate Stays portfolio.  After losing their mother to cancer in 2014 and each with a growing young family, their attention turned towards the hospitality industry and building a locally-based business. In January 2020, Fountains became the latest addition to Harrogate Stays. Our aim is to provide a streamlined guest experience from start to finish with excellent customer service, impeccable en-suite rooms and a first-class cooked breakfast.

Making up the third member of the team and devoted to giving the guests a VIP experience, house manager Sue takes charge when it comes to the overall maintenance and ensuring the rooms are in perfect condition. Sue has been a key part of the Fountains family for nearly 20 years, garnering trust and respect from guests and staff alike due to her work ethic and friendly way in which she conducts her duties.

Glenn and Beth are our talented breakfast chefs, between them they have over 25 years of experience in the catering industry. They will ensure your breakfast is cooked exactly as you like it, fresh from the kitchen. Finally, we have Monika who is the lead housekeeper across the road at The Belmont. However, you may see her as she occasionally supports Sue during busy periods.

The whole team is devoted to ensuring you have a wonderful experience with us and if you have any questions during your stay, please do not hesitate to ask any one of us.
