Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great stay, lovely hotel with very friendly staff. Very nice menu with a wide choice all well cooked and presented. Freshly prepared breakfast with nothing to much trouble to prepare for you. We stayed in room one which is a large room with views over the garden.

A brilliant hotel in such a good position for Pickering centre and also the east coast. All staff exemplary for a start. Lovely smiley welcome & free upgrade on one of the two rooms. Breakfast was a great experience, lovely food well cooked and a smiley, happy staff member serving us (Gabi) Our rooms were good and we had no noise from the road. We used the bar area and, again, staff happy and obliging and a bit of banter which is always good! Jacqui checked us out and was very helpful regarding future visits. She said we could leave the car in the car park whilst we had a walk around Pickering & even use the toilets before we left for the coast! Thank you Jacqui The whole ambience of the hotel is great. You won’t be disappointed. We will return with the rest of our group who couldn’t make this visit.

The staff are a credit to this hotel, nothing was a trouble. Had breakfast and evening meal both days. Excellent food and choice. We didnt need to look anywhere else to eat on the evenings. First class.

The Best Western Forest & Vale hotel in Pickering is just perfect. Really helpful and friendly staff, excellent dining, lovely clean and well appointed rooms and welcoming bar/lounge. Location is perfect for the NYMR and exploring the Moors, local villages such as Hutton le Hole, Helmsley or a trip out to Scarborough or Whitby.
