“Warm welcome, great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We stayed at The Gallery for just one night whilst visiting family. We had a warm welcome from Kathryn who showed us to our lovely room (number 3). On arrival we were greeted with home baked cookies and fresh milk for our hot drinks. The award winning breakfast lived up to its name, we opted for the traditional cooked breakfast but there was plenty to choose from, including fresh fruit and cereals etc. The B&B is in a good location in the centre of Thirsk and the surrounding areas.
To further sing Kathryn's praises, I received an email after our departure to say that I had left a dress hanging in the wardrobe, with the offer of posting it on to me. This is service you wouldn't get in a larger 'chain' hotel.
We'll definitely stay again when in the area.

Thank you it was a pleasure having you to stay and always good when local residents recommend us! I'm sure a lot of us have left something behind in a hotel and wished we could get it back - i know i have so I always like to try to reunite left items with their owners - apart from toiletries (I'd spend half my week in the PO!!) Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon.

My second visit - another great welcome on arrival - my room was perfect with everything I could possibly need and very comfortable bed - a delicious breakfast with lots of local goodies - Granola especially tasty! This is the ideal place to stay if you are visiting North Yorkshire - I will definitely be returning.

We had an excellent 2 night stay at this delightful & ideally located B&B. Kathryn & Steve were very attentive hosts. The room was spacious and clean. The fluffy bath robes and complimentary slippers were like staying in a 5 star hotel in the heart of London but with all the home made personal touches such as homemade cookies and fresh milk with the tea and coffee in the room.

The breakfast sets you up for the day and was perfectly cooked and presented with local high quality products such as preserves and honey.

We were celebrating our anniversary during our stay and returned to our room to find a card and chocolates which was a lovely gesture.

If you are wanting to explore this area then you need to pay a visit here.

We had a wonderful 5 day stay in this B&B. We couldn't have asked for better! Kathryn was so nice and helpful, nothing was too much to ask of her! Always great suggestions of things to do, good maps, and has a huge collection of guidebooks from local sights, which you'd have to pay for otherwise! Thirsk is a fantastic area, loads of history, and if you don't feel like touring towns and castles you can easily go on any number of great walks around the countryside. Would come back here in an instant.

Just a 1 night stay. Wish the stay had been longer so we could have tried more options from the wonderful breakfast menu. Very good traditional cooked breakfast made with local quality products (husband's choice) or plenty of choice from the alternative menu - I had homemade smoked haddock fishcake and poached egg - wonderful. Room and ensuite high standard and very clean. Hosts very happy for guests to use breakfast room for takeaway meals. Also small fridge in breakfast room for guests use - which is better than having a noisy fridge in bedroom. Thanks for a good stay. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely time staying in this excellent B&B in the heart of Thirsk, North Yorkshire. We had a warm welcome from our hosts and were made to feel very much at home. The room we stayed in was very spacious and in immaculate condition. The bed was very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed a leisurely, very tasty breakfast with a great choice of options.The B&B is perfectly positioned for exploring the delightful little town of Thirsk and the lovely surrounding Yorkshire countryside.

First Time in Thirsk, hoping to find a nice atmosphere, we found much more than that. Kathryn is a perfect host and we felt at home. The room was wide with all the facilities, from home made chocolate to the nourishing body lotion. Breakfast couldn't be better, you can choose from a very large selection including delicious assorted fresh fruits and hot dishes in very British style. There were even many books and DVDs and maps you can take for the time you need them. Never seen such an opportunity in any other B&B and we are travelling a lot. We hope to come back one day.
