    Good

    Friendly helpfull staff. Good freshly cooked breakfast.

    The bed was very firm. The hotel is only accessable by car. A good mile out of Selby. Only £4 in a taxi. I am partially sighted and cannot drive any more.

    Very good

    great location - great facilities for children, good car parking, decent food and pricing.

    The rooms were like living in an oven - even with the windows open - ventilation definitely required - an automatic opening set of front doors would be very helpful when bringing in luggage too

    it was near where we wanted to be.

    The service in the restaurant for breakfast was very poor. Coffee and tea cold. Dirty crockery and we were put on a table right near the cereals and the waste food bin!! Staff were not impressed when we pointed out these things. The fan in our bathroom worked when it felt like it, only half a toilet roll. The room smelt of drains as did the two other rooms we booked. To be honest feel the rooms could do with a refurb and a good clean, mirror and bathoom not that clean.

    Superb

    I was travelling alone and felt safe and comfortable in my room. The welcome was very good and the decor in room 19 looked recently refreshed.

    No complaints as such, just the view which there is nothing you can do to move the wall.

    Good

    Nothing specific, other than he location being close to the event that we were attending.

    It is an 'okay' place for a short stay.

    Ease to find it very visible from main road.

    My room was room 8 which was at the back on the first floor. Just also happened to be the hottest day of the year so I naturally opened the windows - there was not only a really loud humming/buzzing noise constantly presumably from some sort of generator, but it was clearly very near the kitchens as my room stank of chip fat! It was not pleasant - I had to have the windows open as without aircon it was just stifling, but then it smelt badly! If I stayed again I would ask for a front facing room!

    The comfort, location, food, staff and value for money cannot be faulted. An excellent hotel, and we would certainly stay there again.
