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

They had coffee and cake waiting for our group and check in was all sorted ready for us along with the menu for our evening meals. Our stay run like clock work. The food was brilliant and plentiful! The hotel is beautiful.... More

This was our second visit here and once again we were not disappointed - except by the wet weather! From the offer to carry our luggage to our room on arrival (not always common in UK hotels) to checkout, we experienced a friendly quality of service. It is a lovely hotel in the heart of beautiful Pickering, with a beautiful... More

We tend to get Advance DBB when travelling so we have paid for all main meals before we leave New Zealand. Unfortunately this one doesn't do those. Notwithstanding we enjoyed our night in this hotel. The staff were excellent, including the one who had to come to the room at 10pm to turn off a faulty extractor fan. The breakfast... More

Three couples meet up regularly and this time we wanted a base to see the sights around Pickering. The hotel was perfectly situated and the stay there exceeded our expectations, from the warm welcome received when we checked in, through the surprise complimentary room upgrade so that we could be together, to the excellent meals and very friendly staff. We... More

What makes this hotel special is the staff , they are so helpful and pleasant . The position of the hotel makes it great for visiting various seaside places and of course the North yorkshire moors railway. Having a big car park is a bonus and the gardens are lovely especially when you have children with lots of energy to... More

The outstanding thing to say about this hotel is the staff who are well trained, welcomong, friendly and efficient. Predestination approach from the car park is a little austere and the entrance lobby could be a little more welcoming - but I am being picky! We were allocated a courtyard annex room down two steps with a step into the... More
