My wife and I booked for Sunday lunch, very warm greeting upon arrival, coats taken and shown into a lovely cosy lounge with real fires!! Just the thing for a cold winter day. Nice menu with some interesting choices and no problem with my wife requirement of 'gluten and diary free'. Special mention of the lobster bisque with potato dumplings... More

very last minute decision to actually go out for new Years eve. The Worsley said' no problem'. So we went thinking it wasn't gong to be busy as we had been fitted in. Wrong!! It was heaving! Terrific atmosphere, roaring fires, delicious hot and creative canapes with crisp champagne Dinner was fantastic, wine outstanding and delicious desserts. Slightly too 'supremes'... More

I know for the most part we appear to be an oasis of tranquility but we can liven it up when needed! I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay, sometimes the impromptu decisions work out... More

As we booked our two night break via Travelzoo it proved to be real value for money. Our room was one of the larger ones in the cottage annex and it was a decent size and very comfortable. On the first night we had a drink in the hotel bar and although I am generally not a fan of hotel... More

Visited Hovingham in the summer and this experience, combined with the promotional offer gave us the excuse to stay over for 2 nights. Attentive staff, good size room and adequate bathroom - good experience prior to arrival and ease of check in. Dinner in main restaurant good and quite formal - as expected of this upcoming type hotel. The owners... More

We have stayed at the Worsley arms a few times now. We rely like the bar and open fires. The staff are friendly and it's good for visiting Helmsley and Castle Howard. The breakfast is really good. Some of the rooms are a little tired but are good sizes and very comfortable. We tend to go when there is a... More

We booked a 2 night deal through Travelzoo. Terrific value! As with most hotels of this type, the layout of the rooms is dictated by standards determined many years ago. We had room 12 at the end of a corridor, which has plenty of space with a bathroom to one side of a small 'hall' and the large bedroom/seating area... More

We started our break with Sunday lunch.....sadly this was served in an unattractive bar area despite the hotel having a very attractive dining room. The food was average, greasy roast potatoes, overly rich jus and nicely cooked fresh veg. Our room was cramped and dark, impossible to read in bed and a bit of an obstacle course en route to...

We stayed for a two day break in November and enjoyed our stay. The room and bathroom were a nice size and the staff friendly and helpful. Lovely open fires and a nice homely feel about it. We had a nice meal on our first night and found out quite a bit about the village and its history from one... More

My husband and I stayed on the 28/29th November and have to say what fantastic value for money the stay is. Lovely country style hotel with real coal fires, various snugs for reading/relaxing. We ate in the Cricketers on the first night which was excellent and would have happily eaten there on the Saturday but a prior dinner reservation prevented... More

Yet another excellent weekend away at the Worsley Arms far away from the madding crowd. If you like fine wine, real ale and great food all served up in front of a roaring fire then this is the place for you.
