This is essentially a guest house (serving dinner to residents if required), rather than a full service hotel, but does not pretend to be otherwise. The room and bathroom were clean, although the shower cubicle was rather on the small side; there was a good array of toiletries. The proprietor and her staff are friendly and, although we did not...

I recently stayed here with family for a birthday celebration weekend. Val and the team are very welcoming and look after you very nicely indeed. The location is very handy for the railway station (we were here to travel on the North York Moors steam railway) and nothing seems to be too much trouble for the hotel staff to make...

A tray of tea and biscuits outside in the garden within minutes of arriving set the standard for our overnight stay. Warm and friendly, nothing was a bother and a superb breakfast with a bottomless supply of tea or coffee. Our morning toast was whipped away part way through because "it will have gone cold" and fresh hot toast brought...

I was dismayed to read this review - we are not registered disabled have never published that we are. I spoke to the lady at length during departure - returning her deposit by way of the credit card machine and offering to find her alternative accomodation - we also gave a tray of tea and coffee. The week before we...

On a business trip to Malton, was looking for something a bit more homely than a hotel. I found it! A wonderful welcome on arrival - hot cuppa thrust in my hands in minutes and a nice chat about this and that. The room was beautifully clean and comfortable, a lot of extras you wouldn't get in a hotel too....

We stayed at the Old Manse in March as part of the Groupon offer (as a lot of reviewers seem to have!) which was for a two night stay for £79 including breakfast. The Old Manse is located on the outskirts of Pickering but no more than a 5 minute walk to the railway or restuarants. Off road car parking...

Thanks to my sister-in-law and brother (and Groupon) we have all just returned from a stay at the Old Manse in Pickering. The lovely house was very easy to find and provided secure parking around the back of the property. The location is perfect for a short walk into Pickering where there are several restraunts and pubs. Valerie and her...
