We stayed here on the final night of walking the Yorkshire Wolds Way. We had walked 17 miles without a break and it had been raining all day, so we were tired, wet and cold. The welcome we received soon warmed and cheered us though as a very friendly lady checked us in and provided us with a stack of newspapers to help dry out our wet boots.
Our room was very nice indeed - roomy, clean and comfortable. There was a slight glitch with the radiator which wouldn't work and, as we needed to put it on to help dry out our gear, we reported it to reception. A very friendly chap attended to it immediately and we were soon warmed up and steaming nicely.
Our room was well stocked with tea/coffee/toiletries etc. and the shower was excellent.
We dined in the bar later that evening and had a really top notch meal of local belly pork followed by a scrumptious fruit crumble, all washed down with a very tasty local beer. Our breakfast the following morning was equally good.
After a couple of earlier negative experiences with accommodation along the Wolds Way, the Ganton Greyhound was a real treat. The service and standard of accommodation was very good indeed and good value for money too.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Greyhound, not just for walkers but for anyone visiting the area.
