we visited goathland whilst staying at Whitby, we stopped here for lunch and both my partner and I had a ploughmans lunch and it was very disappointing. x 2 pieces of cheese ( one type, you had to choose either a type of cheese or ham ), a small side salad, no dressing, half a bagette and an whole apple...

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

While it was quite a novelty to be staying at the Aidensfield Arms (which is why we booked here in the first place) the rooms were quite average. The beds we had were quite old and the mattresses were a bit saggy. Breakfast was ok, but only served between 8:30 and 9:00 am. The water temperature and flow was a... More

We stopped off here for coffee and toasted tea cake on a very cold and windy July day. Service was pleasant and the toasted tea cake was lovely and hot and the butter nicely cold. A step back in time The walls were covered with photos of the stars of the series and of course we had to take photos... More

When you get to Goathland you step back in time so of course the hotel is in keeping with the village and so it should. We found the staff friendly and helpful, breakfast was lovely, room was dated but we expected this. Good sized twin room with lovely views. If you want to stay in a modern no atmosphere hotel,...

We'd read reviews of this hotel and tried to get in somewhere else and this was the only hotel that came up as haveing rooms available that take dogs. It turns out there had been a cock up with the room booking but they gave us a room overlooking Scripps garage. The room was tiny and although clean, VERY dated.... More

Did the 'Heartbeat' thing with our daughter, son-in-law and four young grandchildren last week. Took longer to get there than we imagined, arriving at village around 9pm with grandchildren needing the loo. Only establishment open was the Goathland Hotel, so our daughter went in with our well-dressed and well-mannered grandchildren seeking mercy and help, only to be turned curtly away!... More

I enjoyed my stay. It was a little dated , but it suited its surroundings with the heartbeat feel. The staff were friendly. One in particular . A lovely Italian barmaid . Who added to the enjoyment of my stay. With her friendly funny banter. Especially with England playing Italy in the World Cup . Unfortunately England lost. So that... More

Stayed one night at this hotel, and will definately not be returning. I thought the hotel was very tired and dated, The bed was extremely comfortable. The bar area was devoid of any atmosphere, and would have been absolutely terrible if not for the pleasant and cheerful barmaid, who was doing her best to cheer up the awful surroundings. She...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to our traditional local pub and hotel. We have become world famous by sheer accident but for the very reasons Yorkshire Television chose us we like to think that the very best of an English village pub has been delivered to an international audience. Our belief is that many come because of the fictional Aidensfield but return for the spirit that is Goathland. Essentially we offer the convenience of a small hotel but with a big personality. The hotel has eight en-suite bedrooms; they all have individual characteristics and views of our wonderful moors and timeless village. Our rooms reflect the traditional building and retain all the charm and character of yesteryear. The rooms are all fully equipped with 32" LCD Televisions with Freeview, Tea, Coffee and Hot Chocolate making facilities and of course all fresh white linens. ... more   less
