This hotel restaurant does an excellent Sunday roast....we had the pork but wish we'd had the beef but it was still a lovely dinner!! We would go back, would recommend it and will have the beef next time because the Yorkshire puddings are great!!

A very nice, quaint, homely, and very friendly hotel. The location is very good, very near the Malton, York and the coast. Our room was lovely, overlooking the garden and the marquee used for weddings. As it was January, the hotel was very quiet and we had the restaurant to ourselves. We were asked were we wanted to eat, as... More

Dear patsylandin It was a pleasure to welcome you to Hovingham, good to hear you enjoyed your winter break with us. January is a quieter time of year but we keep the home fires burning for those seeking peace and quiet and the company of a good book. Thank you for the positive feed back on the food. We look...

We stayed here on 24th Jan 2016 and had a wonderful time. OK it is a little tired in places, but is a unique gem in a gorgeous location. We were in room 1 which was perfect for our one night stay with our dog. All the staff were amazing, so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They happily... More

We booked the New Year's Eve dinner/dance, overnight stay and breakfast. We booked late and only got in through a cancellation. What a lucky break that was. The food was fine dining and the entertainment perfect for the clientele who attended the celebration. Our room was comfortable and quaint and situated in the main building. The owners and staff were... More

Dear Alan D Thank you, glad you enjoyed the celebrations. We try to provide a private house party atmosphere and it really helps when everyone enters into the spirit. Judging from the feedback it will be a full house again this year, I hope you are able to join us again. Regards Tony Finn More

We have never spent a Christmas away from a family home so we weren't sure if we would take to the idea. However, we need have had no fears as the warm welcome we received at the Worsley Arms from Tony and his team made the three of us feel just as though we were staying in a family country... More

The best food I've ever had while attending a wedding. Both the pre-wedding evening informal hot buffet and the actual wedding breakfast were delicious and cooked perfectly. Lovely venue, friendly staff and the extra touch of board games freely available to enjoy in the lounge were a nice touch. Highly recommended

We worked out, last weekend, that we'd been coming to The Worsley Arms off and on for over 20 years and little has changed in that time. So yes, that does mean that you're not stepping into the height of cutting edge fashion; a trendy boutique hotel this is not! But it does mean there's a wonderful familiarity and comfort... More

Stayed on a Sunday night. Room 1 dull dark & uninviting, no working hot shower, had to have a bath. Given the choice of being the only customers in the chilly dining room or eating in the slightly warmer but bleak bar we opted for the bar. I assume it was the chef's night off as the food very disappointing.... More

I find it difficult to criticise The Worsley Arms because, generally speaking, we enjoyed our stay, the staff were very friendly and the food was also of a very high standard.
