Walked in off the street and got seated straight away. We had been on the north York moors railway all day so was was quite peckish. Excellent food and service. I thought reasonably priced for what we ate. Think they more geared up for older people eating there. Atmosphere was a little stuffy. But no complaints really. Was very quiet...

Excellent service throughout. When we booked were offered a free upgrade to a Superior room, which was superior with gas fire and bath within the room as well as separate shower. Excellent breakfast. Needed at last minute to extend our stay and this was accommodated for us with no problems

We have just returned from a lovely one night stay at this hotel. We had a large Executive room at the front of the hotel and although it wasn't one of the renovated rooms it was good.

Well set out, quiet room. Staff could not have been more helpful. Food was first class. We went on a wet Feb weekend but gardens look like they would be pleasant in summer. Plenty of car parking space. Two minutes walk from the delights of the town centre.

Lovely friendly hotel situated right in the heart of Pickering, with ample parking. All the rooms looked different, ours was huge. Slightly dated/tired decor but that didn't spoil it, kind of added to the quirky charm. Food was great. Would definitely got back.

We booked the hotel on a B&B basis as when we stayed a couple of years ago and the meal was awful. The hotel did give us our money back for the meal at the time, we said we would come back on a B&B basis next time we stayed. The bedroom was immaculate, good breakfast with good choice and...

had a very good short stay at the Forest and Vale in Pickering, North Yorkshire. The bedroom was big with plenty of space for clothes, lots of armchairs and a lovely bed. Very comfy and clean. I was in a quiet room overlooking the garden. Nice meal in the bar, which was very informal and cosy. Nice people; happy to...
