Stayed at the Golden Fleece on 27th February for 2 nights in their Superior Room. What a lovely time we had. Hotel was great, bar warm with roaring log fire and a great atmosphere. Beer good too. Dined in the restaurant on 1st night. Food was very good, tasty and well presented. Staff could not do enough for you. All... More

My husband and I had a five night stay from Sunday 16th to Friday 20th covering our wedding anniversary on the 19th. We booked a standard room and arriving on Sunday afternoon we were shown into a freezing cold room 6. This was rabbit hutch size with a big bathroom, but we did not intend spending too much time there.... More

We had a 2 night stay in a great room at the front of the hotel with a four poster bed. We had dinner in the restaurant on both nights as the food was excellent. There was a cosy log fire in the bar where you could dine if preferred. To top it all the staff were a credit to... More

My wife booked for 2 nights for my Birthday (unfortunately we could only stay one night due to family illness) The hotel is well placed in the market square and looks very impressive. The room was very comfortable and clean but was a little cold at night. Next day an electric heater was brought up but, like I said, we... More

Made a special trip to Thirsk and called into the Golden Fleece for lunch to celebrate my wife's birthday. Had our Border Terrier, Timmy, with us and he was made welcome in the bar, where we ate. With a roaring log fire in the hearth, it was a lovely venue on a bitter cold February day. With lots to choose... More

We recently held my Mother' s surprise 70th Birthday Party at The Golden Fleece. Pot luck really as we are not from the era but chose somewhere so all the family could get to via car and rail. Fabulous service all the reviews you read about friendly staff are correct. We had visited late last year to discuss requirements and... More

Lovely Hotel with lovely staff, in a nice little town square. The room was nice and big and I needed to use the step to actually get onto the big bed. The breakfast was lovely and we really did not need to eat again until the evening.

You can't beat the Fleece for a business or leisure trip, great staff, food and nothing is too much trouble. I travel on business a lot and even when in the area not on business I still prefer to stay here. Jo's crispy bacon (and mushroom) sandwich is just the ticket to start the day.
