This is a lovely pub with rooms arranged around a courtyard - Finca style. It is the fourth time I have stayed and this visit was as pleasant as the rest. The food is good, breakfast is excellent and the staff are all lovely. Read the reviews and there is a common theme, most of which are overstated, but nonetheless... More

A rare find. Somewhere children and dogs are made to feel welcome. Booked after a planned walk. Lovely spotlessly clean room! Stayed in family room, it is a luxury for the children to have their own room and also loads of room in ours to sit on the settee and spend time together too. Warm welcome in the bar, stayed...

Helpful welcome, very spacious room, clean and comfortable. Dinner consisted of huge portions of food well-cooked and nicely presented in cosy, atmospheric room followed by coffee in an adjoining small lounge. Breakfast was a repeat of dinner with above-average portions served by attentive and helpful staff. So, all in all a really pleasant experience except that our room (no 2)... More

I had read all of the reviews and I can safely say that I can not believe the content of some of the negative ones having stayed here for two nights. Rita met us in the car park and checked us in. She was an exemplary host. The breakfast waitresses were equally delightful. The young man who ran the bar... More

After a disaterous night at The George in Malton (no review as it was hopefully a blip) I was booked into the Cresswell. From the moment of arrival and meeting the charming Rita my stay was excellent. I wasn't paying but will definitely stay again at my own cost. The accomodation in the rooms in the back courtyard was an... More

A damp Monday night in the middle of November and we were the only residents. Very comfortable, quiet room, well-stocked bar with a few locals, good dinner and breakfast. Situated in beautiful countryside. What more could you need?

We stayed in the family room for one night a couple of weekends ago. The pub itself is very welcoming and homely and the family room was great, very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was lovely. The only criticism, and it is a small one, is the shower wasn't very powerful. We would definitely... More

The pub/restaurant food was really good... We ate there each night and the burger has to be tried! The location is convenient for loads of attractions and towns.... We... More

The location of this hotel is ideal for Castle Howard, York, The Howardian Hills and the North Yorkshire Moors. The accommodation is very good, very comfortable and offers WiFi use. The en-suite facilities are very good but there was a problems getting hot water for a shower in the morning. There is plenty of parking and the rooms are to... More
