My wife and I booked here for a night away, as it seemed like a charming pub / hotel in a nice little market town. This is exactly how it turned out to be, a nice building, well equipped with amenities. The pool was nice, as was the jacuzzi. The place however did seem eerily quiet, one of the bars downstairs was always closed, the communal areas were deserted, the restaurant was empty and devoid of character, as was the main bar area. Reception was efficient if not terribly welcoming.
The room was in the far corner of the top floor, which was actually fine because it flet more private, however, on the down side:
We had a view of a brick wall which wasn't nice. The old sash window didnt close properly and rattled in the wind, the tv was tiny and mounted high in the corner. The bathroom door wouldnt close, and the toilet seat wouldnt stay up, which is dangerous as any man wil tell you.
That said, the room was cosy and comfy, maybe a little cramped if you're there for any longer than 2 or 3 nights with a lot of luggage. The bed was comfy and the shower was very nice. Boroughbridge is a nice little town, not much to do really , but many pubs and beer is cheap ! The free WiFi in the hotel was also very welcome.
