Parking round the back of the hotel, free and secure; lovely welcome from receptionist although directions to room obviously went in one ear and out the other as I got thoroughly lost... Was delighted/mildly trepidatious about being given the Dick Turpin room, which was quite a peculiar layout with 3 possible entrances to the room, split level and 4 poster... More

Only stayed for one Friday evening as part of a room/meal deal, the evening meal was very good tasty and well portioned. The room was spacious but warm, so windows were left open, sadly the noise of late night revellers did cause disturbance. The breakfast was ok, but spoilt by a piece of toast with mould on the edge. Overall... More

We stayed here for two nights and had a beautiful room with a four poster bed overlooking the market town. Lovely hotel, and great staff throughout. Food was very good, with a great selection for breakfast and and extensive evening menu too. Would thoroughly recommend and looking forward to going back.

Excellent hotel with lots of charm and excellent staff, the breakfast was very good. All this was let down by our room, very tired, bathroom cool, lots of noise? We should have complained, but the hotel and staff were just excellent.

We had a lovely stay. Friendly helpful staff, lovely food and excellent location. The only reason I scored 3 for the room was because it was small, but still a lovely room with everything we needed including a very comfy bed.

Have just returned from my 50th birthday event held at the Fleece and couldn't have been happier with the afternoon meal in terms of the service, surroundings and menu. The first call out goes to the staff, every last one of which were a credit to the business. From the receptionists to the waiting staff (breakfast & main meal), myself,... More

Stayed here for second time using Living Social voucher. A little gem in the heart of market town Thirsk. Easy access to York & Harrogate. Amazing food, polite professional staff with tasteful bedrooms offering comfort and class. A full English Breakfast served quickly and an array of cereals, croissants and fruits to choose from. A delightful hotel and if needed... More

A pretty hotel with bags of character, good attentive staff and very good food. Our twin room was spacious, with a rather dated bathroom, but overall very comfortable. The only major issue was our room (room 11) was at the front of the building; while it had a great view of the marketplace it also lacked double glazing. As a... More
