Stayed one night (in the Mews) and everything was just right-from lovely friendly staff , well appointed room (though some might find the bathroom a tad small-I didn't) and the general ambiance of the whole place.It's a genuine old coaching inn and rightly celebrates it's history that you can almost feel seeping out of the walls......overseas guests must love it...

Had a lovely Sunday lunch here today. Menu is large enough to cater for all tastes yet small enough to give confidence that everything is fresh. Lovely to speak to locals who are clearly regular visitors and great to see that staff treated them so well. Equally as first time visitors we were warmly welcomed and based on this visit... More

What a lovely hotel. The interior leads you into a modern day tome warp. The decor is fitting for modern times yet still has the authenticity of its past. The staff are so friendly and made our stay very pleasant. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Food is locally sourced and we'll worth every penny. The bedrooms are period... More

Yet again stayed at Fleece. I know why I keep returning its the warm reception and the quality. Staff always look happy and nothing is a bother. They had a function on and this did not affect the service one bit. Paul at the bar looked after our liquid needs well. Had the Roast and it could feed two. Breakfast... More

Good location, friendly staff, fine breakfast, room small but clean, quiet and tidy. Main problem and the reason I am writing this is the bedroom smelt strongly of sick. Apparently it's the wax they use on the furniture... They should change furniture wax and experience the joy of a four star review.

I am a regular visitor to the Fleece and have been for the last twelve years. In that time I have never had cause for complaint and have probably stayed in every room at one point or another. The hotel has a very friendly and homely feel to it, the staff can't do enough for you, the food is very... More

Decor very dated. Walls were so thin, we were kept up all night with snoring and movement from the room next door and the room above. Room was boiling. Shower nozzle didn't stay up high enough which meant having to bend in shower, I'm only 5ft 5. Breakfast was disappointing, didn't even bother with it the second morning. The sausage... More

We had a three night stay while visiting for a family wedding and stayed in room 26 in The Mews. The room was a little shabby in places with a crooked curtain rail and a fire sprinkler in the ceiling which had not been plastered in properly, the shower tray needed re grouting. On returning to our room on the... More

The well kept brick facade gives the idea this that teh hotel is well kept. It is nog bad but it could be better: immediately behind the entrancedoor the carpet is worn. The girls in the receprion offer good service. The top room with a great view over the marketsquare smells as if the windows have not been opened for... More

Held the Yorkshire Gliding Club annual dinner - dance at the Golden Fleece and they gave us a great time. Food and service excellent and the hotel did everything they could to help us have an outstanding evening. We'll certainly be doing it again next year. My wife and I stayed the night at the hotel, had a great room... More
