We have visited Knaresborough on different occasions and looked at this pub which through the day is quiet and popular with families. Our room was shabby to say the least. The bathroom was awful, smelt damp and the walls were covered in damp. We also had the added bonus of a snail on the door frame! As we were only staying for one night we decided it would do and set out to find a decent pint as the range of beers was limited to one bitter. On returning we could hardly believe our eyes! The disco was so loud - we had not seen anywhere that there was one, we tried to get to the door that led to our rooms but another table had been put near the door making it difficult to get through. The music was so loud that the doors were vibrating in the frames and the floor boards too. To make it worse our room was at the back and above where the smokers stood. The screaming and swearing was disgusting and continued until gone 1 in the morning even though the disco stopped at 12.30. When we used our shower in the morning - there was no handle on the shower door so was unable to close the door properly. Most of the water ran out of the shower flex rather than the shower head. The extractor fan did not work which will account for damp as there is no window in the bathroom. It's only good points are that it is central knaresborough and the breakfast was lovely and served by friendly waitress. I am even more annoyed that am unable to
Leave my review on the website that I booked through! We stayed in room 4 - if anyone else stays there have a look to see if the snail is still there!
