A nice escape

Nice hotel staff weren't over friendly at reception though and didn't ask if everything was alright. Our room was clean but outside Windows were filthy on the outside and crumbling. Bathroom door was hard to open very stiff once closed. I did mention this before I left.my sister ate the Morrit burger for dinner which she said was delicious I had nothing to eat due to a migraine. Aembet of staff Salvador went out of his way to help me which I thought was very kind. Breakfast the following day was nice enough but could only manage half due to the amount of flies in the Gilroy restaurant and sitting on the plate which put me off. There was only one member of staff serving who was oblivious to all the flies in the room. We used the spa which was lovely but looked tired outside especially the flooring. The beds were uncomfortable to lie on which I thought was such a shame.

Hotel close to relative

Room very small and hot as on top floor . Outside floodlight shone into room all night on one night , staff very apologetic but should have been switched off. Small double bed but to be fair it was only room left ! Last visit we had a nice twin room .

Nice hotel handy for visiting the Yorkshire Dales

Pros: Friendly bar and breakfast staff. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice for both continental and cooked.
Cons: Stairways were looking a little tired in some places.
Location: Enjoyed the beautiful countryside of Swaledale and Wensleydale. Highlights were the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes, Richmond and Barnard Castle.
Stayed for two nights in a very comfortable, spacious Platinum room with well appointed en-suite. The hotel is full of old world charm. We were captivated by the painted walls in the bar by artist John Gilroy. Although very close to the A66 we couldn't hear the traffic. This was a good base for visiting the Yorkshire Dales and County Durham.
