I stayed here recently for two nights. On my arrival I was made very welcome and shown to my en-suite, upstairs, room, despite the fact that at the time they were very busy with lots of people back and fore. The room was clean and comfortable, and what you would expect for the very very modest and reasonable price charged... More

Booked this hotel before checking reviews on Trip Advisor which is unusual for us. We did read a few of these before going and was a bit apprehensive about going. We knew it was a 2 star and headed off regardless, after all it was only for an overnight stop. When we arrived, we were booked in and shown to... More

Didn't expect too much from this 1 night trip and wasn't wrong. Friendly enough young chap checked me in and showed me to my room ( 12 ) which looked like it had been caught in a time warp, best described as 70's decor. The bathroom appeared to have been last upgraded about 30 years ago. The shower pressure was... More

I can’t imagine why someone would want to stay somewhere they ‘didn’t expect too much from’. To describe this 2 star hotel as being in a ‘time warp’ with ‘70’s décor’ is a totally inaccurate description for the following reasons: All the bedroom decor is of a neutral colour with contemporary pictures and curtains. The bathrooms are all white with... More

Drove straight passed the hotel as they hadn't bothered to illuminate their sign that night but found it eventually by driving really slowly down the road again. We booked this particular hotel because it had a bar and restaurant we were disappointed to be greeted by a sign telling us that the restaurant was closed. Hey, it's off season so... More

The lighting on the front of the hotel is fully functioning when the hotel restaurant is open, however due to this time of year being out of season a decision was taken to close same on Sunday evenings which is the reason the only lighting was from the public bar. This issue will be addressed with the member of staff... More

On arrival the first impressions are not too good.... slightly dilapidated and dour looking building in need of a bit of TLC. The rooms are similarly old fashioned, but beds and linen clean and tidy and easily do for a quick night's stay. The bar area smells strange and doesn't serve proper beer, just the usual keg stuff, but the... More

From the minute you park at the front of the hotel, you can feel that you are about to go back to 1904, which is the date the hotel was built. On entering, don't be put off by the rickety reception, or the picture of the stern looking lady as you go up the old winding stairs to your room.... More

Went for a 50th party we had a sit down 3 course meal, we placed our orders a few days before the booking. My partner never ordered soup at the time, he asked if he could have soup and the reply he got in a very abrupt tone "if your name is not on the list we don't have extra,... More

There are many inaccuracies in this review as follows: The food orders were placed the evening before the event even though we requested they be placed at least 2 days before for ordering purposes. We sometimes request a pre-order for large parties in order that diners receive the choices they have ordered and also to help the serving of food... More

Having just written a great review for The Swan in Wetherby, I would have to add a further star for the Ord Arms. The place as such is nothing special - just a nice pub with some outdoor seating facing the road -, but the food was simply gorgeous. Never had a better beef pie or grilled salmon, with wonderfully... More
