Thirsk
Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed one night with our labradoodle, we all enjoyed it very much. The room was beautifully refurbished to a very high standard - the bars of Divine chocolate had me! We had booked dinner and it was excellent. Everyone was exceptionally polite, friendly and efficient, we will definitely come again after the full refurbishment.

Lovely location in centre of Thirsk. Quaint hotel. Ample car parking. Cosy Mews bedroom but bathroom very cramped. Excellent breakfast. Excellent housekeeping service. Good bus service to York. Herriot Museum well worth a visit.

A nice bar in the Golden Fleece hotel. A very friendly barman was a credit to the place. Good choice of beers and a warm welcoming atmosphere. Well worth a visit. We only called for drinks, but the hotel looked very inviting

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit to our Paddock Bar. It is a great time of year to pop in for a drink with the open fire roaring away. We do hope that you call by again and maybe even sample a dish off the menu to accompany your beer! Kindest Regards The Management Team

stopped for a bite to eat, and loved it. very tasty and well presented - will definitely be returning. Also, due to living reasonably near Thirsk, I am pleased that we are able to come again. We also had one person in a wheelchair, which the staff were very helpful and kind. 5* in my view.

Being our first trip away at this time of year, our expectations weren't particularly high. We should not have been concerned. This place is amazing with its coaching inn heritage and charm. However, all of this could mean nothing if it were not supported by its wonderful staff. All of the people that we came into contact with were friendly,...

Stunning service on arrival at reception. Warm and friendly environment in the Bar. Room was a bit cold but they are undergoing a refurbishment programme. Hope they fix the creaky floors so as not to disturb other guests
