Really friendly welcome after a long day, The Forest & Vale Hotel is an impressive building in the heart of Yorkshire countryside. There was a good selection for dinner, I had beetroot with goats cheese and walnut salad to start, followed by sea bass washed down with some local beer all was fantastic. From a business perspective rooms are spacious,... More

Stayed in an executive room .....#7 which was far from executive standard. I am a Diamond for Life member of Best Western and have stayed in hundreds of their Hotels. This is by far the worst one I have used. It's well past it's sell by date. Our bathroom had mould on the grouting around the bath........dreadfull.

Very nice hotel . Our room wasn't very well ventilated. We couldn't leave the window open as it was on to the street so it felt & smelled a bit damp. The room was very clean and clean towels daily.
