We stayed three nights while visiting the James Herriot Museum and exploring North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. Delicious food, attractive and comfortable lodging, and cheerful staff.

Stayed here for two nights at end of May 2014. Staff, accommodation and food was great. Great location for us to get to a family wedding between Thirsk & Northallerton. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will return.

Called here on a Sunday afternoon for tea,sandwiches and cakes at cost of £6 per head. More cakes than sandwiches and had to send the ham sandwiches back because the ham had an unattractive green tinge. Complained but staff not too concerned although did make sympathetic noises. Not a good experience but other food offerings might be better.

Overnight stop en route further north, so booked the cheapest price we could find and were not disappointed. We had room 1, at the back of the hotel, so it has no view. There is a market in the square twice a week and the set up is from early morning, so perhaps a room at the back could be... More

We received a very warm welcome from Reception staff on our first visit to The Golden Fleece. Our room was spacious, with a very large 4-poster bed. Two comfortable chairs and a table were provided in a good position to view the Market Place. The room was equipped with every facility you require for a comfortable stay. Breakfast was served...

The hotel has a wealth of history and quirkiness that makes the stay here memorable. Reach this hotel after a long drive but was warmly welcomed and shown our room. I don't think spirit levels were used in the construction of the hotel but it added to the charm of our hotel choice. Excellent location being central to the town... More

One of the good things about this hotel is that you are made to feel welcome on arrival and from then on, the staff are very attentive providing superb service. This was our second visit to The Golden Fleece this year. We stayed in Room 4 overlooking the Market Place. The room was large enough and well appointed with comfortable... More

This was our first visit to Thirsk, and we were not disappointed. The Golden Fleece Hotel is situated in a wonderful location, overlooking the Market Place. There is a good sized car park at the rear, although I am not sure if all the cars owners were patrons of the hotel. We had booked a room with a four poster... More
