Helmsley is a lovely Market Town and The Feathers is ideally located on the market square.
This is what I call a good average hotel and by that I mean it clearly isn't 4/5*. So within that context of what I call 3* then it was excellent. The bar was great with good beer, excellent and efficient service and usually busy. The food in the restaurant was just the job with good service. I had to laugh though when I was ordering 6+ bots of wine (large party) and asked to taste the house red, the barman said 'if I take the top off, you'll have to pay for it'. There would have been an interesting conversation if it had been out of condition!! By the way, for the price it was fine.
The breakfasts were excellent with very efficient service.
We had a room at the front facing west on a hot sunny day overlooking the Market Place. So the window had to be wide open but take ear plugs to cancel the noise (not too bad) from revellers and motor bikes!
Not much storage space and the bathroom was fairly tiny but fine for 2 nights. Smallest TV I've seen in a hotel room!
