If the Frenchgate is No 1, then I worry about the rest, we had a so called superior room which was quite small and dominated by two very large single beds which the owner told us he had made to order, (not really worth the bother).
There was a lot of damage to the staircase area which made the place look very shabby, and our bathroom window was cracked, as was one of the ground floor windows, but worst of all I kept waking throughout the night as it was very cold and the individual summer duvets simply did not keep us warm and the heating is controlled by the owner!
Basically this is just a glorified guest house overcharging for very mediocre rooms.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The quality of food and menus at the Frenchgate reflect the passion and enthusiasm of the staff. Care is taken to source ingredients locally wherever possible and all our food is all prepared to order. Start with a selection of homemade breads, starters of hand dived scallops, Whitby white crab or carpaccio of local beef, then maybe a loin of Yorkshire lamb together with a confit of shoulder, a fillet of pan roasted halibut cooked to perfection, local game or one of our delicious vegetarian options. Our bar and wine lists match the quality and value of our food. Choose from our superb house recommendations or unique “wine flight” to classic and unusual new world offerings. As well as a range of fine spirits and liqueurs befitting the independent and non corporate feel of The Frenchgate, you can also enjoy a range of both local bottle conditioned ales, and imported beers from around the world. ... more less
