Despite lovely staff, this hotel is not as good as rating suggests. It has recently changed ownership and the new owners cost cutting is very obvious! The rooms are okay if a little over furnished (14 drawers plus a fitted wardrobe in one small room! ) and the towels are lovely large ones. Those are the good points. Despite the... More

I have just returned from having a Sunday Carvery at this hotel and have got to say it is the worst one I have attended in the area. I parked near what I thought was the main entrance as there were disabled parking bays nearby. I later realised that the main entrance was actually off to the right and this... More

We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff we encountered. Our room was comfortable though compact, the ensuite shower room was very short on space but more than adequate. WiFi was available in the public areas and for most of our stay we had signal in our room too. Dinner was good, with prompt service, the full... More

Booked the White Horse at the last minute for a wedding in Helmsley. We tried all the normal hotels a little closer without success, despite them asking prices upto a crazy £340 for one night. Arrived at the White Horse and welcomed really well, shown our room and provided with fresh milk for a cup of tea. Comfortable if slightly... More

The staff were absolutely wonderful. We were shown to our room, and when we were unable to contact a taxi service the reception found one for us - that arrived 5 minutes later! The room was clean and the view was incredible.

We stayed here for a race meeting at Thirsk; we loved the site of this hotel--lovely views across fields to Sutton Bank. Very quiet and we were not at all troubled by road noise as some other reviewers had reported. Lovely deep bath and lashings of (very) hot water; huge bed, decent sized room. Food was great, and all the... More

We stayed here for 1 night only on our way up North. The Hotel Manager was very welcoming and showed us to a lovely room overlooking countryside. The room was quiet and the very large bed very comfortable. We had an excellent breakfast the following morning and would have been happy to have stayed longer. We did pop into Thirsk,... More

Pleasant reception staff and very polite and helpful breakfast service, the young man could have not tried harder. Clean room, quiet and very comfortable bed. Tea and coffee making facilities were very welcome in the room. Being shown a menu might have encouraged us to eat in the hotel; perhaps a menu in the room would be useful. We did... More

The staff here were very friendly and made our stay enjoyable. The room was comfortable and we were happy with the food. We only stayed for one night as we were passing through, but we would definitely consider staying here again and we thought it was very good value for money.
