Stayed one night en route through Helmsley. The room was fine and well equipped, with two chairs, which is a real plus! The breakfast was good, with a good vegetarian option. The staff and owners were friendly and helpful.

Very friendly place to stay in the middle of the main square, therefore the location was great. The room was clean with everything you needed. The breakfast was fabulous and a great place for a drink before bedtime, which was very comfortable

We wanted to see how our new rescue dog would cope with a hotel... and this was a great success. She could even have had a Full English Breakfast if she'd not been on a diet! Warm, comfy Room 5, only slightly marred by the cellar cooler motor running all night beneath the window. Needs more sound-proofing?

Had a visit to Helmsley before going on to the Carpenter's Arms at Felixkirk and decided to have lunch at The Royal Oak. The food was excellent and the chips were the best I have had for ages. The beer was a little expensive at £3.60 a pint. It was a very cold day and the pub had a brilliant...

From walking through the door to saying goodbye nothing was too much trouble for any of the friendly professional staff. Our room was spacious and comfortable with good amenities, a really comfy bed and supervise bath. All this right in the centre of Helmsley. For breakfast there is a good selection and my full English was both beautifully cooked and...

Our hotel room was great!! Massive comfy bed, great coffee machine, nice bathroom. A big spacious room with everything you need! Breakfast was great!! Local produce and was so tasty. The reason I didn't give 5* is because of parking. There is parking outside the hotel but it's pay and display but there is free parking near by on the...

Full marks for this hotel. The hotel is set in a prime location in Helmsley Market place. I was impressed by other Trip Advisor reviews so we thought we would try it as a last minute Sunday night away from home. Booking online allowed us to choose the room we wanted to book (the hotel has 5 rooms), and we...
