Had an inside room at rear of house. Was quiet and good size. Bed comfy, room clean and good linen. Small TV in room. Was unable to add breakfast to the room only deal as staff had no access to more sausages. Strange customer service which does smack of B&B mentality and does not reflect the rather pretentious strapline in...

Myself and 3 friends stayed here last night. First impressions were good however the two of us in Room 5 were woken (& kept awake) at 6.30am by a pipe clanking in our room that didn't stop. On check in we were told breakfast was until 9.30am. However when we came down at 9.25am we were rudely & loudly told...

Great location and everything alright. We were accommodated in a converted stable block which was fine but cold. Might be best to take a heater if you like to be warm or have a young family. Like I say, alright.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in October 2016. We stayed in room 5 which was a lovely large room, with one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! Breakfast was very good with a nice selection of cereals, fruit and cooked options. My partner particularly enjoyed his kippers! Service during breakfast was good and...

I have to agree with others, this room at the back of the hotel was although clean, smelt of damp, I was cold and was assured when asked at reception that the heating was on a timer and would be on at 6pm, well it wasn't and even though the smell of the damp was awful it was too cold...

Got a small room in the small building at the back of the houses (didn't know that the room is not in the house shown in the advertisement). Very over priced. No breakfast provided, you need to make an additional payment for the breakfast. No heater and warm water and rainy in lower-than -12-degree-celsius day. Asked the owner (or a...

We stayed for one night, the room was cramped and the toilet was so small you had to sit sideways !! The welcome was lackluster and we had to wait outside for an answer as the main door was locked, we arrived at around 2pm so this was a bit unusual. We would be hard pressed to find many positives,...

I visited here because I wanted a weekend away on my own and planned to visit the Yorkshire Wildlife Park and Nidderdale Llamas so needed somewhere with good transport links. On the morning before I arrived, I realised I needed an earlier checkout time, and after sending a message through booking.com, I received a response within minutes from the owner...

The room was very nice and pretty clean but no proper shower just a hand held attachment. Stayed a few years ago with a couple who's partner is well known this was a cue for the husband to leave cooking the breakfasts and come and be 'funny' whilst we're all trying to eat our breakfasts quietly.....he was excruciating, even without...
