Travellers' Choice
A handsome, ivy-clad 18th century building, once a private bank, overlooking the River Ouse and yet right on the edge of the town centre. Its atmosphere balances that of a boutique townhouse hotel and a bustling, relaxed, traditional inn. 24 beautiful air-conditioned bedrooms with luxurious bathrooms. Fine but informal restaurant, twice winner of AA award for best wine list in the UK. Also wine shop with 'enomatic' tasting machines, bar with real ales, and free wifi.

We spent one night at the Old Bridge as part of a friend's birthday celebration. We arrived in the afternoon, were welcomed by the reception team and had a snack on the terrace. Our room was comfortable and quiet, and the breakfast the following morning was excellent. The building is old, and inevitably some of the rooms have been squeezed into odd spaces over the years. We felt our bathroom would have been better as a shower room, but that's just being picky! The hotel isn't cheap - £169 for a standard double with breakfast on a Saturday night. The only oddity was the carefully laminated notes around the room telling us we'd be charged extra if we took any of the toiletries from the bathroom!! (As a rule, we don't steal!) Equally, with a wine shop on site, the polite reminder that if we bought their wine and chose to drink it in the room, we'd be charged £5 corkage seemed unnecessary.

My lovely daughter treated me to an afternoon tea here for my birthday, which I have to say was one of the best I’ve ever had. Lovely sandwiches with delicious fillings (she had vegetarian fillings which she also loved.) Followed by a crumbly fresh scone with lashings of jam and clotted cream and beautifully scrumptious little cakes. Great choices of teas or coffee. The service was great too - smiling faces and attention to whatever we needed. A very pleasant afternoon ; I can thoroughly recommend. Comfortable chairs and very pleasant surroundings. I imagine this would be a great hotel to stay in

Attended a family wedding yesterday and from the moment I arrived I was made to feel respected and welcome. Every single member of staff went above and beyond to ensure the wedding ran smoothly. The food was amazing, all freshly cooked. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bottle of water a nice touch. Would highly recommend this hotel for any event.

The wedding we hosted on the 26th were such a great group of people - we really enjoyed having you with us. Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such a lovely public review. Trip Advisor is often used by people with some problem they want to air, so it's great when someone feels strongly enough to write something positive. With very best wishes, John Hoskins

I will try not to well up as I write this but everyone at the old Bridge hotel was above and beyond expectations, nobody could help us or my family and friends enough and this was maintained throughout our stay and our wedding , the food was wonderful amazing local produce that just amazed everyone ( even our morning toast and coffee was made special ) the hotel rooms are immaculate and beyond comfortable , if I could have snuck the pillows out of the room i would have done. Honestly 10 out of 10 is not good enough this place is easily a 20 out of 10 . I cannot recommend highly enough and we are local so we will be back as often as we can for food . Thankyou to all the amazing staff for all your incredible service .

We have hosted a few weddings in the weeks since re-opening, so I am not sure exactly which bride and groom you were, but a huge THANK YOU for taking the time to write such a glowing review. It has been a pleasure to see so many happy faces in the hotel, particularly those celebrations that have been delayed for such a long time. With best wishes, John Hoskins
