Reviewed 10 May 2013

We did. And I'm sorry to say we were wrong to do so. Two adults staying B&B May 2013.
The sat nav does not show the hotel but it is located at junction 51 right at the end of the M1 /A1.
I have to say that the out side of the Lodge looks like an old run down holiday camp. But there is a reason for this. The management say they are hoping for moter way status and if got would have to knock some of the building down so why pay out thousands to refurbish. They've got a point. Ok that's the worst bit. Inside the staff were very pleasant and most helpful. Our room was clean (double) room 8. with bath and wc and shower. The best nights sleep I've had for ages. Absolutely no traffic noise. Flat screen tv, coffee / tea , iron and trouser press in room. Very comfy bed. Full English breakfast eg help yourself. lots of other rooms. Only 10 miles from Catterick. Would I stay again. YES I MOST CERTAINLY WOULD.

I stay in quite a few hotels around the Country and very rarely would I complain, however where do you start ...
Was it the small double room, desk only just big enough to put a laptop on, not overly clean room or bathroom.
Hotel had wi-fi but apparently most of the bedrooms have very poor connection.
Food in the restaurant was basic and served by someone who really didn't want to be there & it showed.
Breakfast was "OK".
I have this one tagged as "Don't Return" ... won't be back in a hurry!

Room Tip: Wouldn't recommend this one!

Stopped here after visiting Ripon Cathedral on our way to Richmond. It had a good choice of tea, coffee and cake options and had plenty of seats. Seems to offer a good selection of local things and we enjoyed the Yorkshire tea.

When you approach the motel you see the paint peeling off the window sills. At the small reception the lady was helpful and upgraded us to a bigger room.

We had to go downstairs to find our room and it smelt like your grandfathers attic, the carpet and wallpaper came from the 70s, we found our room.

The bed was a super kingsize with fresh clean white sheets as if brand new, the carpet was stained badly which need replacing badly, walls desparately need painting there was marks all over the walls. The mattress was the cheapest ones they could buy, when lying down you could feel the springs poking through, the pillows were like they were filled with rocks.

The en suite bathroom was clean but the silicone on the tiles need replacing due to mould.

The bedroom was cold because there was no central heating but there was a electric heater which the fan was very noisy (so you could either be warm and not be able to sleep or cold and be able to sleep).

The room was clean but there was an old dressing gown stuffed next to the bedside table from the last person in the room.

The breakfast was mediocre with a small selection on the hotplate, the quality of the products used was very poor and cheap. The service was good due to not many diners.

If your are desparate stay here but I advise you to go somewhere else.

we stayed here in september last year and we were charged £75 for one night but managed to get the price down to £60.00 which we thought was expensive as most lodge type hotels only charge about £25.00 per night. besides that the room was not as clean as it should have been. we went next door for a meal and the fillet steak was like rubber. not one of the best nights we have had

We stayed 23rd/24th March, which was the snowiest weekend everywhere else, except for North Yorkshire!! The welcome was friendly, the room was comfortable and clean, the evening meal and breakfast was excellent. We took our dog with us -free of charge - which was a bonus.
Don't be put off by other comments, this is a good place to stay to explore North Yorkshire. There is everything you want in a small area, - a well stocked shop, a petrol station with a Londis attached, a comfortable cafe, an excellent restaurant. small gardens, and yes a Mcdonalds!
