Excellent location with large car park at rear. Renovations taking place in hotel . After midnight when we went to bed noise from local disco/bar heard quite clearly till after 3am.We were in Room 15 up one set of stair. Good clean room with excellent upgraded new ensuite. Mattress little bumpy .
Breakfast from 8-10 on Sunday. Went down about 9.15am. Was buffet but items not hot. A table of 8 were just finishing and we seemed to be last customers other than couple that came in just before 10. Dish that had contained scrambled egg was empty and dried up and plate for toast had only half slice. I asked if more scrambled eggs was coming out, and staff member said she would find out. I also asked for some more toast . She asked where I was sitting but I never saw her, eggs, or toast again. Think the food had been on display for some time. Fried eggs rock hard and bacon very cold. Looked good food and so disappointed.
Staff throughout visit were friendly and helpful

A return visit to this hotel, and we were not disappointed, some rooms have been refurbished, and are pleasant and well equipped.
Restaurant was very good, and excellent value for money with the party menu at £12.95 for 2 courses of quality food.Breakfast was hot and fresh, with a self service sector.
The bar had a range of local beers, with friendly service from the staff.
I look forward to our next visit !!

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear are quieter, particularly when the market is setting up on Weds/Sat early hours.

The standard bar menu does not disclose that the Golden Lion serves an excellent value roast lunch/dinner: you'll need to check out the chalk board, near the dining room . Quite simply - a huge plateful of meat & veg - amazing value!

I have had lunch in this restaurant many times, mostly with friends but on occasion on my own, it has a good atmosphere the staff are excellant and the food is allways good. it gets quite busy on market day, but if your in Northallerton shopping its a good place for lunch or a coffee and a sandwich.

Northallerton, is located about 9 miles from Catterick race course, a lovely market town nestling in the North Yorkshire countryside. The Golden Lion Hotel is situated in the main street and handy for the little shops, boutiques and pubs. There is a large car park at the rear and permit can be obtained from the reception which is a must on market day.

The hotel meets a very good standard with large rooms and well appointed Ensuite. In the room there are modern facilities, trouser press, flat screen TV and all the usual things, such as hair dryer, kettle etc...

We spent a day at the races and there for didn't eat in the hotel, but if the standard of breakfast is anything to go by then I imagine the food in the restaurant will be fine.

The staff were cheerful and very helpful, booking a mini bus to and from the race course and in general very pleasant. We spent the evening relaxing in the bar with friends and again the staff provided a first class service. We loved being there and enjoyed our stay, the price was very reasonable, we will definitely go back.

Room Tip: There are winding stair cases, so you may wish to request a room on a lowere level if stairs present...

I stayed here twice during June having booked both periods in advance. On the first visit I was not that impressed, particularly with one member of staff who's attitude was terrible. The food was average and the restaurant was full of flies, although this was hopefully down to the weather rather than the state of the place. The rooms are average also with the basics. WiFi was difficult to connect to.

During the second stay, I never saw the female member of staff we experienced the first stay and all the staff were very helpful and friendly.

I must be honest, if I had to stay in Northallerton again, I think I would opt for somewhere different.
