we found the hotel immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and the staff very helpful and friendly.. The breakfast was very nice with a selection of fresh fruit , yogurt and cereals for breakfast. followed by a cooked breakfast which would definitely set you up for the day ... We were very pleased with our room ( number 14), lovely view over the main street and square ... the one thing i am picking fault with is that whoever had previously stayed in the room must have been ill on the carpet , because the room smelt very sickly ..

We stayed here for a "Pamper Your Partner" weekend break. It was really great, with dinner, bed and breakfast, newspaper, flowers, sparkiling wine and chocolates each day. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the hotel had a really traditional cosy feel. We had a room overlooking the Market Square which meant that we felt right in hte centre of things. We were told that refurbishment is ongoing so the bathrooms are being upgraded which will be even better. However, this is a good location for exploring the surrounding area and we wished we had been staying a bit longer. We would certainly stay again.

Stayed here for two nights over the bank holiday. We booked quite late so there were only mews rooms available, which were small, but we found no problems. Hotel is dog friendly too, which is a real bonus. Used it as a base while we spent the weekend exploring the North York Moors, a beautiful part of the world. Food in the hotel was excellent, a good hearty Yorkshire breakfast is the perfect fuel for a long day's hike! Rooms could do with updating, but are clean and well serviced. I think I would like to stay somewhere in the Moors itself next time, but should I find myself in Thirsk again, would certainly stay again!

I took my fiancee on a 'pamper your partner' night at the 'fleece' . They spoilt us rotten . I am a regular user of this fantastic little hotel and have always been extremely happy with this place. The staff are particularly friendly from the waitress's right upto the management. The girls on the reception are exceptionale also.
The food is always fantastic and great value for money

Will keep going back again and again

Well done everybody x

Stayed here for one night. Didn't see a great deal of the hotel, although it seemed fine. The staff were polite and helpful. I did think the room was a bit small and the bathroom a little claustrophobic, but everything was clean and in good order, so no real issue there.

The hotel is right in the centre of Thirsk, it has a decent sized car park and is well situated for the races. I must admit that for the same kind of money I would probably prefer to stay in a Travel Lodge or Premier Inn, although I am not sure if there is either of these in the Thirsk area. Saying that the hotel was decent enough and I wouldn't have any issues with staying there in the future.
