We were driving on our way to Scarborough from York and was diverted off the A64 via Pickering so we were looking for a Sunday Lunch, well not being a lover of carvery's and some poor experiences I glad we stuck with it. The restaurant was busy and they could only accommodate a table for 2 in the Bar area,...

Reception staff were excellent. Good bar service and the food is good and wholesome with a refined touch. Breakfast could have been better. The cooked part was good but the fruit and cereal part was a very poor after thought. Rooms and see comfortable and surrounding area very pleasant

Stayed at the Downe Arms Country Hotel for 3 nights. Our room was 202, decor was lovely and very clean. Only downside was the toilet noise but it didn't put us off, neither did the church clock. The service at the evening meal and breakfast was extremely efficient. Lovely food! Overall we loved it, but the staff made it for...

We were on holiday and had eaten here a few years ago and on our way back to base we decided to call in on a Friday and finish the holiday with a nice meal. We were a bit early (5-30pm) and were unsure whether they were serving meals at that time. We were welcomed in and given a table...

Hotel is about 8 miles from Scarborough and about 30 from York. Our room-202 was a comfortable room with a fourposter bed. It is on the side of the building adjacent to the church-if you are a light sleeper avoid this room as the church clock strikes every hour-even through the night! Breakfast was part buffet-cereal, yoghurt fresh fruit but...

Very pleasant and comfortable rooms. We have stayed in several hotels recently and this was the first that had good lighting in all areas. The bed was very comfortable and shower was excellent. Evening meals were very enjoyable with a very good menu choice. We have stayed here many times without problems, but this time staff forgot to change towels...

Come here regular as its next to the caravan park the pub is very nice and gets quite busy at times. The food is nice but can sometimes deal a little expensive for what you get. Staff are friendly. Will continue to come here but mainly for drinks.
