Have just returned from 5th stay at the Goathland and enjoyed it just as much as previously.The service was excellent and the food and wine just as good as on other visits.The Heartbeat influence is very much in evidence in the hotel and the village itself.Gets very busy during the day with visitors arriving by train, coach,and car but quieter...

Surprised I actually was able to book this popular hotel, we had the pleasure of the highest room ( 7) so once climbed the 3 lots of stairs, it certainly was a room with a view, comfortable beds, nice shower, we slept well, a top sheet would have been nice as it was a warm night and the quilt was...

this place is dirty, all the upholstery on the chairs is beyond disgusting and badly marked, it makes your skin crawl to sit there, the staff are beyond unfriendly cold and rude especially the younger girl who works there she has no manners even to older people. the place should be closed and left as a tv historic building because...

When I read some of the negative remarks on tripadvisor I wondered if we had made a mistake in booking this hotel, however my fears were unfounded! I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband, sister in law and husband and I really wonder what people are grumbling about - if they want a modern conference hotel then they... More

I rang the bell on reception five times, no one came. I had to ask the girl behind the bar to find someone. Breakfast that you must pay for in with the room, is only served between 8.30 and 9.00. We came down at 8.15 and were promptly chased back upstairs by a female Basil Fawlty. " You can't come... More

We booked in for 3 nights and picked this one due to it having been the “Aidensfield” in Heartbeat and because it took dogs. Most of the staff were very friendly, especially the dark haired lady at reception and the lovely Italian waitress, but the landlord`s daughter was quite unsmiling and abrupt. Furniture in the bedrooms was quite tired and... More
