We had a pleasant stay here last weekend. However make sure you do not get rooms 10 or 12 as the showers are non functional. One hardly ran water and the temperature was unadjustable and the other could not be used properly because the sliding bracket for the shower head did not grip and so the shower was to low. Room was pleasantly furnished but tired.
Breakfast was good.

This hotel is a little gem. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Jo, the manager ensures that everything works like clockwork. We prefer privately owned hotels as you get a more personal touch. The hotel is very old and full of character. But the rooms and beds are very comfortable. As it is right in the centre of this lovely market town there is plenty to do without travelling far. The James Herriot museum plus another museum mainly devoted to Cricket are just a short walk away as well as a beautiful old church. The food is excellent with plenty of choice. When visiting this area we would not stay anywhere else

Very friendly helpful staff.
We ate in the hotel restaurant, which is unusual for us and had lovely meals.
Hotel a bit 'oldie worldie' and 100% for the racing crowd, millions of horse pix adorn the walls and clientele straight from the hunting, shooting, fishing brigade.
We were allocated a large room right at the front, with HUGE four poster bed, overlooking the market square, well impressed!
Only negative comments:
Wi-Fi struggles to get to room due to old, thick walls and..
BEWARE the front rooms the night before market day.. .. the traders start setting up at 04:30 for a prompt start and unloading their equipment from vans is an early unwelcome alarm call,
G doesn't know how but T manged to sleep through their activities, must have been something to do with that big bed!

Stayed here Sunday night. Very welcoming staff on arrival. Room was nicely decorated but a little cluttered. Bathroom was very big but cold as radiator not working. Phoned to tell them but no one availale to fix. I said no worries but receptionist appeared with key to another room where it was warm.. Again lovely room and warm bathroom but alot of furniture again. Plenty of tea and coffee available and cup a soup which was a nice touch on a cold day.Breakfast very good with good selection. A very nice stay ia a good position in the town. Stayed at back of hotel and did not hear market setting up. Would recommend!!

Thirsk has been a place that we have visited many times over 40 years. It is a lively, bussling and picturesque North Yorkshire market town. The Golden Fleece Hotel is centrally placed in the Market Place. We have stayed there on many occasions in the past. We booked a room for a weekend in January but the weather was so bad at the time, we decided to cancel and re-book. We stayed last weekend for 2 nights in a recently refurbished room. The staff are very helpful and friendly, making the stay even more pleasant. The Hotel has been modernised but has managed to retain its Market Town Hotel identity. The restaurant has been updated but is still very comfortable.
If you are looking for a base between The Dales and the Moors, then the Golden Fleece is ideal,
as it ticks most of the boxes for comfort and value for money.

Room Tip: Best not to select front facing room on the nights prior to market day [Friday and Sunday]. They sta...
