We have just returned today from a lovely weekend at this hotel. The rooms were spotless and provided all the necessary toiletries. The afternoon tea was well received and was lovely. The breakfasts were fantastic with everything you could possibly want and Val even made my hubby his favourite brekkie. We decided to eat at the hotel on both evenings and the menu was different each day and wow, the food was simply the best!! There was plenty of delicious food served hot on hot plates with warm bread. The food itself was delicious and more than expected...a pure delight. If you stay there, make sure you have an evening meal or you will be missing out on a real treat as Val is a superb chef. Nice touch having a secure car park too. Thanks again Val and we will be back

Myself and my partner booked two nights with a groupon offer which included double room, breakfast and also an afternoon tea and for what we paid we couldn't expect any more than we got. The hotel is well located in Pickering with a car park at the rear of the property. The room was large enough for a short stay with a lovely view over the gardens and a brilliant comfy four poster bed. What really makes this hotel stand out from any other 2 star we've stayed in though was the service offered by Valerie and the other staff members, friendly & helpful throughout with brilliant home cooked food to boot. In fact we had booked in for a valentines meal in York only to cancel that and stay at the hotel, it feels like a home away from home, very cosy in the conservatory with a lovely fire place as well. Some reviewers have mentioned the fact that there are dogs, even if you don't like dogs the two who are resident at the hotel are lovely and seemed more than happy to be near the fire! All in all we would go back for sure.

Room Tip: If you have any requirements just ask, Valerie will do her best at accommodating them!

Just returned from a one night stay, using Groupon. The staff were a little a busy on our arrival, which can`t be a bad thing in the middle of February! We were shown to our room which was on the Ground floor overlooking the garden. Valerie had gone out of her way to accomodate us on the ground floor due to my wife suffering from Vertigo and the room was superb with a very large comfy bed and large en suite shower room. The afternoon tea was to die for and very well presented. The breakfast was extensive, the full English nice and hot and plentiful to say the least and nothing seemed too much trouble. My wife was a little wary of the dogs, as she doesn`t get on with animals, but they seemed soft enough. We were also allowed to leave our car in the car park after we had packed up, so we could walk around the shops in Pickering. All in all, an excellent stay that I would recommend to anyone.

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
