Friendly family run hotel, rooms on 2 storeys in motel style, good standard of accommodation. Handy for Fountains Abbey, Harrogate, Ripon and Knaresborough. The carvery was excellent with massive portions. Would certainly use again

Stayed here to attend a wedding at nearby Fountains Abbey on the following day. On the way to the accommodation our car broke down and it was touch and go as to whether we would make it to the hotel or wedding. We phoned the hotel to let them know our situation, they couldn't have been more helpful. They said... More

Just spent a couple of pleasant nights here. Checking in was just going to reception and picking the key up that had been left out for us. Comfortable room with new looking bathroom, both of which were very clean. Bed was very comfortable with plenty of room, but beware the end posts in the dark! Excellent food for breakfast, lunch...

Spent one night in a comfortable double room with bath and shower. Good inclusive deal, £80 for the two of us which covered dinner, bed and breakfast. Not a very varied menu but we were quite happy with the four choices on offer for the starters, plus all you can eat carvery and a choice of five desserts. Bonus was... More

we walked in and although the menu was placed on the table we just asked for two Carverys. Menus were taken away and we went to get our food, this was all fine. However when it came to paying I noticed the price looked high as I have been in previously and it was quite a bit less last time.... More

Having visited on a Tuesday at 7:15, this country pub advertising quality, home made 'British' food on their website, was a complete let down. The menu was awful. Such limited choice and nothing that could fall into a category of 'quality'. With such little choice we opted for steak, which I must say was a considerable size and extremely flavoursome.... More

Stayed here a week or so ago. Booked through last minute.com. Quoted £60 for a double room, hotel wants you to pay cash not card " because of the charges " the owner said repeatedly. Made sure I had required amount of cash. Was asked for £70. Breakfast extra. No mention on web site so buyers beware

Want there with my boyfriend for a Sunday meal, although the decor was outdated it was homely. Staff were polite and the food was great, would highly recommend as it's was not to pricey for the amount of food and quality you get
