Stayed here for 3 nights in May 2014. Used Pickering as a base to see round the North York Moors. Hotel was excellent. We will be back but have spoiled ourselves by having a superior room, nothing else will do now.

We had a short trip to Pickering at the start of July as a last get away before our new arrival lands, just the two of us, and booked last minute. We normally go camping as hotels are like a bus mans holiday for me, but fancied a little luxury for a change, and boy was we. We arrived at... More

We stayed for one night in this lovely hotel in Pickering. From arriving our stay there was great. The lady on reception couldn't have been more helpfull. There's a lovely bar where we relaxed for a while before getting ready to explore the village of Pickering which is very quaint and pretty. Room was very clean, had everything we needed... More

Well situated in the centre of Pickering a great place for exploring the North York Moors, Scarborough, Whitby and "Heartbeat" country. We were given a superior room (without asking to be upgraded) which overlooked the garden. A very comfortable and quiet stay with friendly service from all the staff.

A very friendly informal atmosphere, with clean comfortable rooms ensures a great stay. Restaurant serves food at reasonable hotel prices. Good choice at breakfast including kippers, cooked meats and cheese as well as the usual stuff. We used it to visit Whitby via the NY Yorks rail.

Spent a couple of days here. Arrived early before our check in time but room was ready and were shown straight to it. Very pleasant staff especially Ben in the bar who was extremely friendly. We had a bar meal which was very good and prices for food and drink were extremely reasonable. We stayed in an executive room which... More

This is a pleasant hotel, a bit dated but very nice. The staff are friendly and very helpful. My room was a little overpriced but well equipped and decorated. However on a warm humid June day there wasn't a single window open in the bar or restaurant - it was sweltering! There was a similar problem in my room and... More

We booked a 2 night stay in an executive room £119 per night. What exactly was executive about it remains a mystery! It was so small/basic (although it was clean). There was also quite a noise from the central heating too. Anyway despite the room we were looking forward to a good hearty breakfast, however , when it came it... More
