Reviewed 2 May 2013 via mobile

We had our wedding reception here on the 20th april and everything was amazing. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. The room had been set out and decorated beautiful. there helped everything run smoothly and went the extra length to make it perfect. The food was amazing and ever single guest couldn't find a fault. The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast was nice and the staff service was the same day and night faultless.

The hotel lies just next to the center of Pickering. It has a really nice garden who are well kept.
When we first arrived the lady in the reception seemed like she had a really bad day - she seemed like she was the manager. The rooms are ok, but a bit out-dated and then there is the noice... oh my. From the hall you can hear everything and moreover from above you also can hear..everything! People going to the toilet or taking a bath like it was right next to you. The breakfast which we tried twice out of our 4 nights stay was incredibly booooring. The staff was ok, but the food..I know its England, the nation of dull food, but still.

This hotel is one of the nicest places we have stayed in whilst travelling the UK, the room we had was very large & the bed was to die for, we ate dinner in the bar 2 nights out of the two we stayed because the service & food were excellent. I cant remember the name of the lovely lady on reception she was so helpful nothing was to much trouble, i remember her telling us she lives York way!! thank you once again for your hospitality & a great stay.... The very thankful Aussies!!

M and I have just returned from the Forest and Vale Hotel,Pickering from a 3 night stay, and cannot praise it enough. The hotel is exceptionally clean throughout, the dinner menu offers a good choice to suit most tastes and the quality and presentation of the food is first class. Breakfasts are cooked when ordered and are hot and plentiful, with again a good selection of dietary options. The hotel is extremely warm throughout, the beds are huge and very comfy.
For sunnier times the F & V has a lovely sun terrace for enjoying a drink/meal in the summer.
The staff are very friendly, and efficient ,nothing is too much trouble. We would recommend the F & V to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the large garden tend to be quieter.

We have eaten here on several occasions and experienced the restaurant and both eating areas in the bar.

The food is usually very good (only one meal has ever been disappointing) and the staff are excellent. The dining room is splendid, grand and with lovely views over the garden. The bar area is comfortable although some tables are draughty when hotel guests are using the bar door to access their rooms.

booked this hotel at the last minute and was really pleased with my choice. The hotel staff were very helpful, the food plentiful and super quality and the hotel accomodation very good. As it was the 1st of February the weather was poor and very cold but the hotel and its rooms were welcolming and warm. We will definately return and would recommend the hotel.
