Outstanding country hotel in Pickering on the edge of the Moors. Ask Lewis for help in the bar or restaurant - very helpful young man. Walking distance to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and to local pubs and restaurants in Pickering..

Stayed here for 2 nights recently with my husband. On arrival we were offered complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits in the lounge which was a nice touch. Our bedroom, although a little on the small side, was clean, comfortable and functional. We had dinner on the first evening and were impressed with both the menu choice and quality of the... More

Stayed for three nights and wished it had been longer. Absolutely fabulous hotel and all the staff are very pleasant and polite. We were made to feel most welcome by all staff members . After a small hiccup ( too many stairs) we were transferred to a beautiful executive room (No additional cost). The evening meals were top notch and... More

We have just stayed at this lovely friendly hotel again (Sat 11th July) and pleased to say nothing has changed, it's as good as ever. Top quality food, nice menu choice as well as nice friendly helpful staff and a spotlessly clean room.

Booked this place on I whim for a night away. This place was easy to get to and had good parking. We were greeted by a wonderful pair of ladies on the reception desk and shown to our room and told of everything we needed by one of the ladies and it seemed it was a real pleasure for her... More

As walk in guests we were greeted professionally and taken care of by the receptionist Suzanne. She told us all about the area and made some recommendation as where to eat. (she was spot on) She is a credit to this hotel as she really knows her job and does it so well. Thank you! The hotel had a wedding... More

The staff were very helpful and efficient. We were made most welcome and put at our ease. The room was clean and tidy, well maintained, and the bed was comfortable. Although it overlooked the main town junction, the traffic noise was very low. We ate in the restaurant and lounge bar and the same food was available in both. The... More

Having stayed at the Crown hotel in Harrogate the night previous we were very happy to experience some genuine Yorkshire hospitality at this hotel - sadly missing at the afore said one. From phoning up through to departure the next day all was good with our stay. We were made to feel welcome and valued - even though this hotel... More
