Stayed last year on business, hotel was pleasant enough. The layout of the rooms involves quite a lot of short flights of stairs, so if motability is an issue I would check with the hotel first as to your allocated room. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Only stayed 1 night and was with colleagues and so ate out; can't comment... More

We arrived earlier than the check in time. We went to ask about the car parking and was greeted by a very pleasant young man, he said that car parking was free. He asked our name and checked the computer and then told us our room was ready. We was pleasantly surprised, he gave us clear directions to our room.... More

As others have said this is a comfortable, well presented establishment. We called for lunch. It was busy but not many people were eating. We soon discovered why; service was very slow and most people had been there some time and were simply waiting to be served. Our experience was no different. However, the food, when it arrived, was well... More

We stayed here overnight recently. Our room (Room 20) was large and spotlessly clean and the beds soft and comfy. The bathroom was functional but again, large and spotless. The bathroom floor was a little uneven, but bearing in mind that this is an old building, this was not out of character and we soon got used to it. The... More

Situated on the middle of the high street this is a perfect place to stay when visiting Northallerton. Very helpful and friendly staff, lovely surroundings which lend themselves well to the history of the hotel and it's location. A bar with two fires, which has slightly overpriced drinks, and helpful staff. The residents lounge is a little bit of a... More

We visit Northallerton once a year and stay here. The staff are very professional and friendly. They aim to serve and please every customer, in a way commercial stop-off motels fail to do. This is a hotel to enjoy the break from travelling. Yes some parts are still a little faded, but the redecoration program is well under way. The... More
