North Yorkshire has many great...

Lovely welcoming staff. A varied and delicious dinner menu in a really cosy bar/dining area. Rooms are clean and comfortable too. Breakfast was a bit of a letdown... over cooked fried eggs and hard-as-bullets bacon - presumably pre-prepared and stored on a hotplate.

Excellent facilities, staff, and service and the food for both dinner and breakfast was excellent. The dinner was exceptional. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. We would have stayed longer had we had the time!

Have just returned from 2 nights at the Fairfax Arms; outstanding place, wonderful room, delicious food and extremely welcoming staff. The atmosphere is relaxed yet busy and efficient, our room was so well presented I wanted to take a picture, and the extra details made it feel like an expensive boutique hotel - beautiful decor, really puffy pillows, well stocked...
