“Good old Yorkshire hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2006

I have heard good things about the cuisine at the Golden Fleece and during my stay I was not disappointed. The quality was outstanding as was the presentation. The meals that we ate were very good value for money. We had a fantastic time the staff were efficient, warm and polite and could not do enough for us. Our accommodation was excellent, the double bed was so comfortable it was a real effort to extract myself in the morning. The room was clean, welcoming, comfortable and well equipped
I have travelled extensively around the world and stayed in everything from tents to 5 star hotels this hotel rates as a good honest establishment and very proffesionally run.

The Golden fleece is an historic hotel on the lovely Thirsk town square. While very picturesque it has the most inadequate soundproofing I've ever encountered, anywhere. I stayed there for 3 nights over a weekend. The first night I was kept awake until after midnight by the noise made by drunken locals using the public right of way which runs through the hotel's car park. Two hours later the couple in the room above me came in and proceeded to talk, laugh and make other more intimate noises for the next three hours. They weren't being unreasonably loud mind you, but the walls and ceilings are so thin that it sounded like we were on adjacent beds. I realize that soundproofing an historic building might not be an option but a few words of warning when booking or complimentary ear plugs would be a kindness. The second night (Saturday) there was a birthday party in the hotel bar which went on until Midnight and featured a DJ and a very loud sound system. The noise level was so high the lights in my room were vibrating. My traveling companion in the hotel's annex could hear it as well, as I suspect could most of the town. While the lack of soundproofing and other guests unaware that their every sound could be heard is not a management issue a party so loud it shakes the property defies belief.

It is only fair to also say that the staff were all pleasant although the restaurant staff could use a bit of a brush up in the customer care department. The restaurant is nothing special and although they are trying it can't be said to be good value for money. Try the Bistro on the alley to the left of the square for a memorable meal and superb service.
