My wife and I stayed for one evening over the weekend. We were very pleased with the friendly welcome, comfortable accommodation, cheerful, polite staff and excellent food. The beers on the bar were good too. Looking forward to going back and staying a little longer.

I have just spent 2 nights here in the comfy, cosy cottage in the courtyard. This is such a lovely place and I feel very privileged to have found it. I stayed with my family and the purpose of the visit was to go to Flamingo Land, which is only 8 miles away, for a day out in half term.... More

I arrived later on a Sunday evening and staff seemed a bit lost with the fact that I had booked in and arrived at 8.00 pm. The room was small and clean, with no complaints. There is WiFi available but ridiculously they don't provide the code in the rooms meaning that if you need internet access, as I did for... More

Kitchen area is well equipped and clean too. Breakfast was excellent, good choices but we all had the full breakfasts anyway. Stayed for an evening meal too and a large party of... More

Four of us enjoyed lunch here. The service and food was good in this busy Helmsley Town hotel. The main problem was finding a place to park as the town was so busy, but eventually we found two car parking spaces in the Market Place.

Don't get me wrong, the room was really lovely (massive bathroom!) and the food really was top notch, however we booked through a booking website & I sent a follow up email to the hotel to check it was a double room, (& was assured it was) but upon checking out we were informed that the price on the website...

Excellent food, good parking facilities round the back or in front. [Avoid the nearby pay park]. Rooms a little tired perhaps but absolutely spotless and very comfortable beds. What really lifts this inn was the attitude of the staff who could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Good value for money.

Just called in for a quick pint with friends whilst visiting the area and we were impressed by the staff who were very friendly and welcoming. Excellent pint of Jennings beer in comfortable surroundings. Now our challenge is to see how we can fit in another visit before we leave!
