A beautiful building with a homely, cosy bar, gardens and restaurant. The room was nicely decorated in traditional cottage style with unlimited tea, coffee and milk. The staff were the friendliest I have encountered at any property without being intrusive. They could give lessons in customer service to other hotels it was that impressive. All staff came across as genuine... More

Another lovely overnight stay at this really welcoming country inn. Dinner was especially good last night - lovely fresh crisp vegetables, and perfectly cooked salmon. Treacle sponge and custard is always good here! The staff couldn't make us more welcome, really friendly; and the guests always seem to echo the warm Yorkshire welcome.

We have just returned from our third short break at the Ellerby in less than six months. This in itself is a good recommendation for this hotel. It's main advantage isn't the spotlessly clean, comfortable,spacious bedrooms and inviting restaurant serving good traditional food. It is the genuinely friendly staff and relaxing ambience of the place. One instantly feels at home.... More
