“Great Village for a Short Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

We have just returned from a weekend away staying in this quaint village. We decided to stay in the Feathers after experiencing a lovely meal there last time we stayed in Helmsley. Rooms clean and airy - comfy bed and a market place view.
Food was up to the usual high standard we remembered from our last visit ...Only small criticism was that in the eating area part of the ceiling was coming away - wouldn't have wanted to sit under it for fear of dust etc falling into the food - just needs a patch up...All staff really pleasant and helpful - highly recommend the area and hotel and will definitely return to stay here in the future.

We have just returned from a short break in Helmsley staying at The Carlton Lodge - a super B & B within walking distance of The Feathers. We decided to eat in The Feathers one night and go somewhere else the next night but our meal was so enjoyable and the staff so welcoming and friendly that we returned the next night rather than eat elsewhere. We opted for the Early Bird Menu which is excellent value. There is obviously no reduction in standards for this offer menu. Each course was nicely presented and full of flavour. There is also an excellent choice. I will certainly go back to The Feathers when next in Helmsley.

Lunch on a Saturday. Great food. Great ambience. Great value for money. Would definitely return here. Was busy but the service was great. The food was fresh and the place was clean. We didn't stay here. We were stating at the feversham arms.

I visit twice a year and always try and stay at the Feathers, friendly staff, lovely rooms, food is excellent. Both bars are very relaxed and the town can be explored at leisure. What more could you ask?

Definitely value for money, bedrooms lovely, large and clean, food was excellent and again value for money. Beautiful village and the atmosphere there is fab.

The majority of the staff were excellent but one or two were a bit sharp.....no one asked us if our meal was ok or if we enjoyed our stay on checking out. We would of said 'yes' beacause it was but no one asked! Pillows were awful.

Will definitely go back though.

Room Tip: Think we had room 21 (or 22!) it backed on to the function suite, and there was a function on so it...

We booked the two night DBB offer direct from The Feathers website and have to say had the most amazing stay. We wanted a large room and this was worth every penny. We stayed in room 23 with a huge super kingsize bed and was at the back of the hotel which was quiet and peaceful. The bathroom was modern with a rainwater shower with plenty of power and constant hot water. Both rooms were spotlessly clean.

The breakfast was plentiful and first class. The dinner in the restaurant was totally awesome with enormous portions.

The staff are super friendly and attentive without being overbearing. A special mention for the Tetley's Cask Bitter which, I am told, is kept very well indeed. The cosy bar is packed with locals which says a lot.

Definitely hope to return to this very special place indeed.
