All in all, this was a good hostel to stay in. It wasn't easy to find, as it was off a side road. Sign postsing was good, once you got to within 100 metres of the place. This was the first YHA we stayed in 10 years ago, and hasnt changed much. Staff where friendly and helpful. Didnt help that... More

This accommodation is good value for money, with a restaurant and free wi-fi. Everyone we spoke to was kind and well-mannered. We were shown to our quiet room and drinks were brought to us. There was plenty to do in the area. What more could a small family ask for?

We stay here for 4 nights what a fantastic place the staff were great, The rooms are clean and tidy and the kitchens are the same. There is also a restaurant also where meals are good and very reasonable. Lounge area lots of games, books with tv and plenty of outside tables and sitting area, also parking.

Lovely setting and friendly staff who were very helpful. The en-suite room was clean and functional. The pre-ordered breakfast was well cooked and plentiful. The self catering kitchen was well stocked and clean. My only criticism is the poor sound insulation and banging doors - the door closure mechanism needs adjusting and that would be the problem solved! Very close... More

As July can be an expensive time for short breaks with families you must explore all the opportunities a modern day YHA can offer. We booked a family room which was adequate with bedding provided and towel hire at £2 if needed. Wet room ensuite with additional toilets and shower close by for the morning rush! Would recommend the evening... More

Great setting and well looked after by Nigel the warden. Edwinstowe a lovely wee place to visit. Short walk to Sherwood Forest visitors centre and the Major Oak. We had a family room with en suite. Great vfm as was breakfast. If we holiday in this area again it would be our first choice for accommodation.

We cycled up to the YHA from Melton Mowbray along Sustrans cycle routes, this was for our second visit this year having been up to a conference organised in Edwinstowe during April. Excellent facilities, locked bike room, a choice of self catering or chef cooked meals, we opted for the latter, excellent. Our private on-suite room was clean and comfortable... More

This was our first stay at a YHA. We were visiting to celebrate my son's 8th birthday. As soon as we arrived we received a warm and friendly welcome. The room was basic as expected but spotlessly clean and comfortable. My son loved the bunk beds. Breakfast and dinner were served with a 'kids eat free' policy. The breakfast was... More
