We spent a day at the races and came back for dinner - quite a big table but the food was served together and we were really looked after well. The bedrooms were very clean and comfortable - bathrooms a little narrow but really nice. We arrived just in time for breakfast - a real Yorkshire welcome and a great... More

A very comfortable room , excellent breakfast, friendly staff, and free wifi which works. That all makes for a pretty good combination. The ambience felt a little dated, but as this matched the classic decor it added to the charm
