Just to set the records straight for the purists. These were never "Pullman" coaches more likely ex-LMS mid fifties general stock and they have not been restored, rather they have been adapted and converted into seven absolutely perfectly adequate en-suite rooms with TV and Tea/Coffee facilities so whilst the interiors bear little resemblance to actual railway compartments you do still...

Stayed two nights staff friendly food very good breakfast good but could be organised a little better eg bread handled by everyone. Traffic in morning a bit loud . Nice place for access to York and dales. Plenty of high speed trains hurtling past. Fifties style train carriages converted to bedrooms could do with a little refurb. Overall an experience... More

In line with other reviewers, we found the Sidings to have friendly and attentive staff and the food was good. It does seem a bit odd to have railway paraphernalia juxtaposed with a Mediterranean restaurant. I can only guess that the enterprise was taken over from the original rail enthusiast who set it up and that the carriages have not... More

Stayed at the Sidings for 2 nights B&B + 3 course meal on first night and what an experience. Although carriage needed re-decorating and a bit snug it was fun and comfortable with clean bedding and linen. The restaurant and bar area were very comfortable and the food fantastic and even ate there on second night, Meditteranean menu as well... More

Toilet & shower basic & working ordered.... More

We stayed at the Sidings Hotel on a 2 night break on 29th June 2014 .We had such an enjoyable stay , we were welcomed soon as we set foot through the door. Every member of staff was so friendly and attentive. We arrived early because we had been staying at another hotel for the night. We ordered a glass... More

We could not fault our stay. Food was excellent. Staff very pleasant and friendly. Although carriage was small it was fit for purpose and the shower was hot and powerful .My husband enjoyed the train spotting. Ouzo shots definitely a new experience. We were definitely relaxed when we left. Thanks to Sid and his staff for a most enjoyable stay.... More
