I have recently stayed at this hotel on a business trip and will definitely be using it again.

Val provided a very warm welcome and was more than happy to get up early to cook me a breakfast before my also early start.

The room was very comfortable, clean and tidy. Equipped with a widescreen TV, free WiFi (great for connecting to the office), tea/coffee facilities, biscuits and boiled sweets!

I personally found the hotel to be very quiet and had an excellent nights sleep, followed by a hot shower and really good quality breakfast on a piping hot plate.

For me this ticks all of the boxes and as previously advised I will definitely be using again!

Thumbs up for Val and her hotel.

We have just returned from a lovely weekend break in Pickering staying at the Old Manse Hotel. The hotel is well situated, being a 5 minute walk to the train station in Pickering and the town centre.
The room (number 4) was spacious with everything needed for a short break away. The ensuite facilities included a shower cubical, complimentary shower gel and shampoo. The room, like all of the hotel, was warm which was just what was needed after a full day out in the Yorkshire countryside in February.
Valerie was extremely accomodating and friendly, as was Gill who serves the breakfast. Thank you both for a lovely stay. If we come up to North Yorkshire in the future we would certainly would stay with you again.

I am sorry that this reviewer had to put such negative comments on - she in fact didnt not stay here
her parents did - we had got off on the wrong foot by missing an e-mail requesting dinner -
this happened because my husband, is terminally ill so events had overtaken us since we replied to the e-mail - we did however offer to do dinner and apologised.
The animal hair she refers to was wool fibre - I just don't know how it got there - I apoogised
wrote her an e-mail offering to do the stay again. Emma, choose instead to write to trip advisor.
I do not take my business lightly we do care about people - we did fail to make her parents happy
for which I am sorry - but do not feel she is in a position to write such
a reveiew. Valerie

We've just returned from a three night stay at the Old Manse and having read the odd negative review would like to set the records straight regarding this accommodation. Our room (No.2) was warm,clean and tidy with a pleasant view of the snow-covered garden. Car parking facilities to the rear of the property were excellent and secure.
Our host Valerie made us very welcome and went out of her way to make our stay extremely enjoyable. The afternoon tea served on our arrival was second-to-none and breakfast offered an excellent choice of fresh fruit and cereal followed by a hearty full English complemented by unlimited fruit juice, fresh tea and coffee. With a roaring fire, comfortable chairs and daily papers provided in the lounge area, who could ask for more !
Thankyou Valerie - look forward to seeing you again later in the year.
Very best wishes. Ken. & Margaret - Manchester.

We booked our two night break through a Groupon deal.On arrival at the hotel a pleasant young man showed us to our room which was very pleasant and comfortable.He then asked us when we would like to have our cream tea and left us to unpack and settle in to our new surroundings.
We went to the dining room at the time we had suggested and were greeted by a lovely roaring fire, much appreciated as we had travelled in the snow and ice to pickering.We met our host Val who was very friendly and immediately made us feel at home, she then served our cream tea which was over and above what we expected including sandwiches, scones, jam and cream, teacakes, small cakes and pots of tea and fresh coffee.
The breakfasts during our stay were absolutely fantastic with local sausages,eggs,bacon and black pudding and lots of fresh fruits and juices available. We were very comfortable and warm during our stay and found our room to be very clean with daily restocking of tea tray , fresh towels and bins emptied etc. Val and her staff were polite, friendly and helpful in fact we felt immediately welcomed and taken care of.
All in all we had a lovely time in Pickering and had no complaints whatsoever, we would highly recommend the Old Manse Hotel to fellow travellers . Regards and Best wishes to Val and her staff . Dave and Alison Stafford from Derby

It was with great regret that my wife and I decided to cut our visit short because of weather conditions and the threat of icy roads.
Our daughter booked the stay for us on Groupon and, from the moment of arrival, Val made us feel very welcome.
The room was very comfortable and overlooked the picturesue, snow-covered garden.
For breakfast there were all sorts of cereal and fruit then, from the menu, we both chose the Full English. It was superb.
We have no doubt that, Groupon or no Groupon, we would love to go back! Thank- you.

Warmly welcomed even though we arrived at lunchtime which is obviously a busy time which i understand. However we weren't informed about breakfast times or where the dining room or anything was. The room was comfy, warm & the bedding clean however it needed a good fettle, my coat fell on the floor & i had to really dust it off there was so much on it. Our room wasn't cleaned the next day, not sure if we should have left our keys but we weren't informed of that, there was a note to say sorry unable to clean your room here are clean towels.

We were woken early each morning to doors being banged loud & dogs barking. Obviously some guests aren't so thoughful so this may not be , especially the young girl on her mobile outside our door Sunday morning at gone 7am.

I personally don't like dogs in hotels, I missed this on booking via Groupon & didn't appreciate the dog hairs in our breakfasts, although you have a very good choice of breakfast which is freshly cooked.

Good location wise & afternoon tea was flexible & very nice.

Would I recommend this to any friends - sorry no.

It was very disapointing to read this review - her room was'nt cleaned the next day because we had
to give the master key - regarding our rating we are rated as a hotel 2-star. We did have two dogs staying,no dogs are allowed in our kitchen. in every room we have guest information re
meal times etc I am sorry who ever greeted you did'nt tell you about the master key - I have written
to this customer direct. Surely if you had a dog hair on your breakfast you would send it back.
her expections were greater than we could supply.

Kind regards Valerie
