All we wanted was somewhere different to go for a nice evening meal and to stay over for bed and breakfast. Didn't want to pay a fortune for over the top extravegance and false hospitality. So when we found this "2 star" hotel with a special offer for half board it seemed ideal. Having read comments on this site regarding the rooms away from the main building being inferior our expectations were that we might not even get a "2star" meal and accommodation to match. That was not the case. In fact it could not be further from the truth. There was a warm friendly atmosphere from all the staff and the owners and a friendly, busy "country pub" feel to the bar area. The food was very god indeed with plenty of choice for the evening meal and breakfast. It might not be Gordon Ramsey in the kitchen but it was certainly well above its 2 star rating in our opinion. Yes, the rooms are basic, but they have everything you need and are clean and tidy. As for the rooms away from the main building,. they have been recently refurbished and from what we seen, we would have no problem in booking one next time. I say next time because we will certainly return for more. In fact we are going to book one of the rooms for a birthday surprise treat for a family member and a treat it will be I'm sure, might even return with them ourselves The overall experience of our stay at this hotel was far above the 2 star rating...Maybe the owners should re apply for a higher rating ? I would reccommend this hotel to anyone whether you just want a nice meal or bar meal in a friendly pub atmosphere or whether you want to stay for a short break or even longer, great location to relax and unwind with good bus connections for sight seeing, shopping in York if you want to leave your car, or you can drive north to some great scenery and historic places in North Yorkshire like Hemsley, Thirsk and Whitby.
