“clean , comfortable and excellent food.”
Reviewed 29 May 2008

Our large group of friends have been staying in Helmsley for over 16 years and 2 years ago returned to The Feathers after a 3 year defection.We are delighted with the changes and the welcome , staff ,food and general ambience are to be highly recommended .The rooms were immaculate and beds very comfortable . It's position in the Market Place make it an ideal location to sample the delightful shops and as a good starting base for walks to explore the area without resorting to the car ! We have already booked again for next year which in itself is a good recommendation !

Stayed May 2008

Just returned from a very cosy weekend away. We were paticularly impressed with the manageress, waitresses and bar staff ,all were "genuinely" friendly. The room we were allocated looked over the market square and was very spacious, well decorated and clean. We were on a winter weekend deal which included dinner, what can I say, the food is excellent, couldn't fault a thing!
Whilst we were there , the function room was in full swing on both nights, but we heard nothing in our room.
Overall we had a wonderfull stay and would highly recommend this hotel .

Booked for a two night break just before Christmas but had to check out after one night because of the noise from the disco in the function room which went on until 01:00 am.

We think that this is a new function room that opened shortly before our stay.

Prospective guests should ask about any functions and the location of the room before booking.

We have just stayed in this pub/hotel in Helmsley, North Yorkshire. I just wanted to write a review as the staff were wonderful. Very friendly and helpful.
There are quite a few pubs in Helmsley, which i confess i did try to find accomodation in before trying the feathers, but im so glad we eventually stayed in this hotel instead.
The hotel is in the process of refurbishment, and the rooms we were allocated were not, it must be said, in the nicest part of the hotel.... However, they were sold to us as economy rooms, (with appropriate economy price!) which we fully understood, and i have to say, they were no worse than some rooms i have stayed in and been charged double the price for! If that was an example of a budget room, in an area of the hotel that was being refurbished, then the other rooms must be fantastic....?
The food i can vouch for though! It was wonderful, as was the service from the youngish staff, from the manager/ess of the place to the waiting staff. Very helpful and friendly.
The pub areas themselves were nice...old ,classic, traditional country pub style. Lots of wooden furniture and dark red painted walls. Just what a country pub should be.
They do seem to be in the process of modernising parts of the pub in a more 'wooden floors..minimalist' style in the function room areas, which actually works very well, but hopefully they will keep the traditional style of the pub also as a contrast.
Highly recommend this friendly pub!
Helmsley is a lovely village to visit by the way
