This hotel & restaurant are a real find. The rooms & bathrooms are fitted out to a good standard & the restaurant serves wonderful food. The light supper menu is great value. All the staff are friendly & very efficient. The only drawback is poor mobile reception on O2 over which the hotel has no control. We would highly recommend... More

We had previously had a dinner here while staying in Knaresborough several years ago. The hotel is in a village just north of Knaresborough just a short distance from the A1. We spent the Monday night here in room 14. We were shown to our room and assisted with our luggage by a very friendly member of staff. The room... More

This hotel is a great find. The approach belies the reality as once inside everything seemed faultless. A smiling welcome from Bestek, who accompanied us to the room which was generously appointed. The restaurant served up great food at Dinner and Breakfast. The staff were there when needed but not overbearing. A very good location when travelling up or down... More

We stayed here as the result of a promotional offer, for dinner B&B at a decent rate. When we arrived and had a look at the menu we decided that we would upgrade ourselves to the full a la carte dinner, which was delicious with generous sized portions. The room we stayed in was spotlessly clean, well appointed, and comfortable.... More

Stayed here for the night after a wedding. We met friends in the restaurant for lunch which was pleasant and the staff were helpful as we got there before they really opened so thanks for letting us have the teas and coffees! Stayed overnight in a very nice room, clean and comfortable. Had breakfast the next day and I must... More

Our last stop-over on our holiday in the Highlands, heading home to Kent, this is conveniently situated for the A1M. A warm welcome in reception, immaculate but atmospheric decor in an individual hotel. Dinner was superb, fine dining at its best, I shall never know how I had room for a cooked breakfast as well! The only downside was our... More

We did not stay but held a dinner party for friends in the restaurant. The welcome and the service were faultless and the food and choice excellent. All the staff we met were charming and helpful and added to the pleasure of our meal.

Well,I do not think I can praise this hotel enough, it was a last minute find on late rooms, FANTASTIC value for money indeed, this must be one of the best kept secrets around Knaresborough......I was working in the area and once I arrived I invited some friends who live local, we had a very relaxing evening indeed, the reception...
