I generally do a fair bit of travelling, and tend to book last minute. So pretty open minded as to what to expect. I stumbled upon the 'hare-able hotel' as it was situated pretty close to my next morning's appointment (Cranswick), but tbh wish I'd of kept driving to the next village!!!!!! I was fully aware I got the last... More

We explained that we only had 1 room left and we usually didn't sell it because it was very small and at the end of the block. We explained that the room had not had any heating on for days and would take several... More

Friendly staff, clean and comfy! Food is of a very high standard and great value for money! During the week, it is mostly used by workmen but at the weekend you will meet people visiting friends or family in the area or up for festivals or just for the walking etc.
