Stayed here on business trip. The welcome on arrival was ok, Rooms were very clean and spacious, good quality bedding. The room suffered from excessive noise from the manager and his dog in the room above. Street noise of the marketing setting up at 3.30am. Breakfast was totally non existant not a sole around to assist. The morning was a complete disaster unable to gain access to the dining area all locked, eventually after a considerable amount of time the cleaner arrived for her days work and tried to help with little success. After a further delay the manager arrived gave some excuses. Eventually gave him some money for the stay but not what was asked, could go on and on, this place needs to learn customer service.

Room Tip: "Rooms at the rear less noisy noisy"

High street in a North Yorkshire Market Town ! Think back to the the 19th century and then the Mail Coach stopping over for the night and you have to find a room in one of the Hostelries in the High street, then as now don't expect too much ! A warm welcome, good beer a clean bed and a good breakfast can all be had at the Black Bull for a modest fee by today's standard.
As has been noted in previous reviews, it can be noisy so take your earplugs if you want to turn in before midnight.

Needed a place to stay for a last minute business trip. Got a twin room for £55 including breakfast which was very good value.

Room was large and clean with lovely soft towels. Shower wasn't very powerful so this took longer than normal.

During the night there were a regular stream of revellers shouting which did disturb my sleep. If it's for one night I wouldn't worry but longer breaks maybe a problem.

Staff were friendly and efficient, so all in all an acceptable place to stay.

Spur of the moment visit. Made very welcome on arrival. Room pleasant, clean, shower a bit on the lame side but we were at the top of a very old building. Only problem, was late night revellers leaving night club to the rear of building, very noisy but hey that can happen any where.
Fabulous breakfast and lovely people.
Reasonably priced, you get what you pay for

We have just spent two nights here. It was warm,clean, comfortable and the breakfast was very good. In no way could it be considered "meagre".The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. The room was very warm with nice curtains and the bathroom had a blind. Yes, it was a bit noisy on the Friday night as we overlooked the main street, but locals are not under the control of the management!! The beautiful soft white towels were changed every day. The trouble with some reviewers seems to be that they expect 5 star accommodation at B&B premises and prices.
