We stayed here during a visit to Castle Howard, check in was easy and friendly, rooms were clean, comfortable, possibly a little too warm for me on arrival but wasn't a problem to switch off the radiator, the décor seemed a little dated but was in keeping with this fine old building, location was good and parking ample, we did...

Stayed here 3 nights in a superior room with the summer offer. Loved it. Room was spacious as was the bathroom. Kettle in room and more than ample supply of teabags, coffee, hot chocolate and packets of biscuits. The food was superb.

Really friendly welcome after a long day, The Forest & Vale Hotel is an impressive building in the heart of Yorkshire countryside. There was a good selection for dinner, I had beetroot with goats cheese and walnut salad to start, followed by sea bass washed down with some local beer all was fantastic. From a business perspective rooms are spacious,...

Stayed in an executive room .....#7 which was far from executive standard. I am a Diamond for Life member of Best Western and have stayed in hundreds of their Hotels. This is by far the worst one I have used. It's well past it's sell by date. Our bathroom had mould on the grouting around the bath........dreadfull.

We stayed in room 4 this time, a superior room, overlooking the road. I do not sleep well and am a light sleeper but wasn't troubled by traffic noise, however, on our previous visit we stayed in room 2 which overlooks the garden and would choose the back of the hotel if available as the rooms overlook the garden.
