“Just what we needed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We stayed at the green dragon overnight as we were attending a wedding in Bedale. The room was clean and just what we needed for the short time we were in the room itself. The cooked breakfast was very tasty. The staff very polite.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

Just stayed a night in the green dragon. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms very large. We had a fridge in pud room with complimentary tea, coffee & hot chocolate. We also had fresh milk with a selection of breakfast cereal for those who don't want full English. A very nice touch. The breakfast in the morning was freshly cooked and very good. This place may not be the ritz but it is very good value for money and very warm & friendly. Top marks

Having stayed at the green dragon a few times, i am happy to say that it seems to get better, a fairly new landlord, who really knows what guests require with a mini fridge in each room with cereal orange juice, and the usual tea & coffee, the breakfast the following morning was second to none
on a minus side, the only thing i picked up was the old style tv, maybe needs updating

The bedroom we were given was very average, the TV was very old fashioned and the shower pressure was awful. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. We were given cereal, milk and orange juice in the room, and were given the choice of a full breakfast for an extra charge, which was very good. The staff were very friendly, they let us check out at 4pm with no extra charge. we wouldn't recommend Bedale as a town to visit, for younger people. it was a very localised town and not very welcoming. it was also very noisy as the pub downstairs had a full house and a band playing - which didn't stop until very late - it also didn't have a lot of places to eat out, apart from takeaways. We felt that the price of the room was very pricey, probably because we expected more for our money. unfortunately we would not come again.

Room Tip: Stay away from the front of the building - noisy.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Green Dragon. I must say I was a little disappointed that you didn't enjoy Bedale as a town. I can only assume this is why you only gave us 3 out of 5.

I'm not quite sure if you researched our website prior to booking, we do clearly state that we have live music most weekend and that we are proud of our reputation for excellent entertainment. We also inform guest that the music is muted at midnight and have not received a complaint to date. Sadly, the majority of negative point are always brought to light on TripAdvisor & not during the guests stay, which makes it difficult for us to rectify any issues.

As for being pricey, £50 prpn including continental breakfast, plus a very late check out free of charge, I'm not sure what would be more reasonable?

Again, thank you for your review, as the majority of negative points in this review are in reference to Bedale, I would suggest they are placed in the Bedale area of TripAdvisor & not on our accommodation.

Regards,

Martin & Catherine

Really enjoyed our stay here,
Location right in the centre of Bedale, can struggle to get a parking slot,
Rooms, very clean, free cereals, and milk, and orange juice in room,a small fridge, tea and coffee making facilities,full cooked breakfast for £5.00 per person, never had that, as was busy going out and seeing our son, who lives nearby,bed very comfy, had two amazing nights sleep, even though music on till late friday, never disturbed us though, clean bathrooms, had a corner bath, which was really nice,The small town of Bedale has everything you require right on your doorstep, from pubs, to bakers, and butchers, and supermarkets, fish.n.chips and eating places.
The one thing that stood out here, was our Barman/Host Mike, so very nice, sociable, always there to help from everything to carrying luggage, to asking how your day was,this Guy, so deserves a good pay rise,a right natural,who really cares, so nice to have met him truly,made it a memorable experience thanks Mike...

Room Tip: We had a room on the top floor, noise never bothered us.
