We have stayed at The Worsley on several occasions including the last two Bank Holiday weekends and were delighted on both visits. Hovingham is a beautiful little village. You'll need to drive to get to places, but there's lots to see and do within a short distance (if you can drag yourself away).
The first thing to mention is the staff, and how friendly, polite and helpful they are. The rooms are always clean and well appointed, with comfy beds (especially the 4-poster room!). Yes, in places it could be argued that the decor is getting a little tired, but this doesn't detract from the ambiance of the place.
The food and wine is always excellent, and very good value for what you get. Pace yourself, it's worth sampling 3 courses! Tony (the owner) has excellent knowledge of wines, and I would always recommend selecting your meal then asking him to bring what he things would complement it best - it will always be excellent, and the most appropriate, not the most expensive! Also the breakfasts are superb, using locally sourced produce.
The garden is beautiful on a summer day, and a perfect place to enjoy the sun and chat for hours with a cooling drink (or three).
As always on this site there are a couple of bad reviews. To be honest I find some of them hard to believe, and as for lack of mobile phone reception - hardly a reason to mark the place down - there's wifi available if you ask.
All in all, we can't wait to go back and would recommend strongly to others.
