Possibly the worst Hotel we have ever stayed in. Hotel position good. Our room was extremely basic, with some of the cheapest fittings and furniture you could imagine, toilet seat with chunks missing and badly damaged underneath. Bathroom looked as if it had not been touched for 20 years. We had to keep the bedroom window closed day and night because of so many black flies. Public rooms the worst I have ever seen very cheap shabby furniture. The food was extremely poor quality. In my opinion this hotel needs closing and a complete refurbishment. Decor was awful with parts of ceiling hanging down dirty fingerprints on all paintwork, in fact we loved this part of Yorkshire but were so upset by this hotel we left one night early. One good point sheets and towels were fresh and clean and many of the staff were very friendly.
My advice AVOID THIS HOTEL.
