Usually I am a fan of wetherspoons pubs and hotels. Lets face it they are usually great value for money. But unfortunately the three tuns in Thirsk is the exception. We stayed during the mini heat wave in july 2013 and were given a room on the top floor, which had stairs that first went round two tight corners then up and then down again, which made getting the suitcase to the room a bloody nightmare. There was a lift but this only negated part of the maze of stairs. This room turned out to have no air conditioning and even worse it only had one window which you could open to let fresh air in, and this only opened a tiny amount, no more than three inches high and three foot long. Subsequently the room was like an oven, realy unbearably hot.
Also the food in the restaurant seemed to be the most flavourless I have ever had in a weatherspoons. Beefburgers which are usually very flavourful, tasted bland. Bacon rolls were served up with the bacon barely cooked and totally lacking in flavour. Even their best Aberdeen Angus steak just did not have the taste it usually does when purchased at other pubs on the weatherspoons chain. In the end we gave up on them and started to eat at the little 3 just around the corner, where although more expensive the food was vastly superior. All in all I definitely would not eat at the three tuns again, and probably would not stay there over night.
