We enjoyed our visit very much, our room was well presented with a large shower in the bathroom and comfortable bed. The staff were friendly and breakfast was delicious. The hotel is a few minutes drive from Pickering surrounded by pretty countryside and there are ponies and chickens in the ajoining field. Lovely fresh free range eggs for breakfast!

This is a family run hotel in a lovely location with ample parking. The room had a king size bed but with only queen size bedding, but comfortable and clean. The meals were ample and well cooked, however the service was rather slow. You will get an enthusiastic greeting from the family dogs.
