My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in 2011, and we visited everything Heartbeat while in the area. I read the negative reviews before we left, and thought we'd find out for ourselves. The one thing this hotel lacks is embracing its' Heartbeat connection. It seems they want nothing to do with the series, and everyone working here seems tired of hearing about Heartbeat. Instead, they should embrace it, and use it for their own advantage. After all, many people come because of Heartbeat. So smile!!! Answer our questions with joy. This way people will come back! The hotel has one lady there that never smiled, and was really cranky. We tried to ignore it, and just enjoyed sitting in the bar we had seen on TV. The breakfast was excellent, but their hot meals lacked salt, so was a little tasteless. The toilets were terrible, really hard to flush. Other than that the rooms were fine. We have visited Goathland every year since, but we haven't stayed here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to our traditional local pub and hotel. We have become world famous by sheer accident but for the very reasons Yorkshire Television chose us we like to think that the very best of an English village pub has been delivered to an international audience. Our belief is that many come because of the fictional Aidensfield but return for the spirit that is Goathland. Essentially we offer the convenience of a small hotel but with a big personality. The hotel has eight en-suite bedrooms; they all have individual characteristics and views of our wonderful moors and timeless village. Our rooms reflect the traditional building and retain all the charm and character of yesteryear. The rooms are all fully equipped with 32" LCD Televisions with Freeview, Tea, Coffee and Hot Chocolate making facilities and of course all fresh white linens. ... more less
