Visited Pickering over many years and this is the first time we stayed at No.9 B&B.
Met with a warm welcome by Elizabeth, and made to feel at home straight away, with a lovely cup of Yorkshire tea and home made carrot cake, just what you need after a long journey!
The rooms are spotless, bright, and very comfortable. The shower was superb and very much needed after a long day out on the east coast ! The bath towels are so soft and warm.
Aylwin cooks a superb English breakfast, and our parents had the fish option (smoked Mackeral, haddock and Salmon) which were equally as good. My wife has food allergies (Gluten/Wheat) and Elizabeth was extremely helpful and accommodating in meeting her needs.
Lots of little nice touches go down well - EG, There is a smalle fridge on the landing upstairs with all the little treats you like when away (chocolate, wine, beer etc) and a large bowl of crisps, not to mention the complimentary sherry. All they ask is that you put a small donation into a charity box downstairs if you have anything.
Each night when you return from your day out there is a chocolate on the bedside cabinet, the room has been cleaned and it's "toasty" warm.
Is there anything we can say negatively about this B&B?, absolutely not, Elizabeth and Aylwin have got this B&B to a very high first class standard, and it's more like a five star.
Superb, and see you both again soon!
Would highly recommend.
