We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights over a weekend for a wedding we were attending in the local area. We had a room at the front of the hotel facing the square which was fine for us (like a bit of people watching!) if you want peace and quiet ask for the back. The room was second floor,... More

Booked this hotel on line after reading reviews however what I found didn't tally. As we entered the front door the odour was food and cooking and not too appetising either. The lobby carpet needed a good vacuuming. Check-in was ok but getting to the bedroom was tight up the stairs. The stairs were doored off I presume for fire... More

Had a great lunch here at the feathers. We had just the one course and both had pie. My steak pie with short crust pastry was outstanding - full of succulent beef in a rich gravy. My OH had chicken and ham pie which was also full to bursting with chicken, ham and leeks. All in all a good lunch.... More

We had a really lovely one night stay at the Feathers. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. Our room was in an annexe and was large, clean, quiet and had everything we could have wished for. Breakfast was great - lots of choice and very fresh. For the price we couldn't have had better.

My wife and I are fans of the Feathers, having eaten there many times in the past (usually lunchtimes), and have never been disappointed. On the advice of a friend who had previously stayed there, we decided on the Feathers for our two night (Sat/Sun) stay. I booked on-line and paid by Paypal. Simple. The one thing which worried me...

Great Sunday carvery here but I would advise booking as it does get busy but this goes to show how popular it is. People were very friendly and food was hot and good selection - would definitely visit again

We only had a couple of drinks here but we liked the atmosphere and the friendliness of the barman. It is located on the main square of this delightful North Yorkshire town. We would love to go back for a meal as the food being served looked and smelled very good

The Feathers will not suit if you like bland, uniform. chain type accommodation. If, however you appreciate good value, charm and old-fashioned high standards in aexcellent location with quality food and service - then look no further. Particularly Dog-friendly/welcoming which is a bonus. Will be back soon

Picturesque village and the hotel overlooks the village market square. We booked two rooms, a huge double that was actually a family 2 bedroom suite. Well furnished, comfortable, clean, plenty space, a rare commodity in some older hotels! The single room was nice too and overlooked the square. Pleasant breakfast. The frequently encountered stairs. Kind of lackadaisical staff who don't... More
