Well set out, quiet room. Staff could not have been more helpful. Food was first class. We went on a wet Feb weekend but gardens look like they would be pleasant in summer. Plenty of car parking space. Two minutes walk from the delights of the town centre.

Lovely friendly hotel situated right in the heart of Pickering, with ample parking. All the rooms looked different, ours was huge. Slightly dated/tired decor but that didn't spoil it, kind of added to the quirky charm. Food was great. Would definitely got back.

We booked the hotel on a B&B basis as when we stayed a couple of years ago and the meal was awful. The hotel did give us our money back for the meal at the time, we said we would come back on a B&B basis next time we stayed. The bedroom was immaculate, good breakfast with good choice and... More

had a very good short stay at the Forest and Vale in Pickering, North Yorkshire. The bedroom was big with plenty of space for clothes, lots of armchairs and a lovely bed. Very comfy and clean. I was in a quiet room overlooking the garden. Nice meal in the bar, which was very informal and cosy. Nice people; happy to... More

We have just completed a perfect 4 night New Year stay here. All staff (bar, restaurant, housekeeping and reception) very friendly nothing is too much trouble for them. Food excellent and both restaurant and bar friendly and relaxing. Accommodation extremely clean and comfortable. Already booked a return visit.

The Party was flawless until a barman called "Ben" became hostile when he asked by a party member for a drink unaware the bar had just closed. Ben replied with, bar closed ten minutes ago and your getting thrown out in ten minutes so i would advise you to warn your party. I mentioned to Ben I've never been thrown... More

This app needs a 4.5 button. This stay was pretty much perfect for me. I spoke with the hotel twice before booking and the customer service was exceptional. This continued throughout the stay. All the staff are friendly and it seems nothing is too much trouble. The superior room I booked was very nice. Large with a sofa and arm... More

Every time we visit n Yorks we make a point of visiting this hotel and bar. We don't stay in it per se as we prefer but lower key but no it's the bar that's caught our imagination. The place is well placed for watching the world go by. Sounds bit odd but the Windows face out to the roundabout... More
