Reviewed 15 August 2016

Another very pleasant stay. The location in the Market Place in Thirsk is ideal. The hotel is beautifully decorated and has a historical charm in keeping with its history. The food continues to be first rate.

Just arrived back to our room, after meal out. Disco thumping away below. No chance of sleep. What type of place takes your money then treats it's guests this way? Room is cramped and stuffy. Tea and cakes this afternoon was ok. I've come to Thirsk to take part in a cycle sportive tomorrow and this horrendous accommodation threatens to...

Booked the Golden Fleece after seeing the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor. My wife and I stayed here after a day at the races. The lady on reception made us both very welcome on arrival although our room wasn't ready as we arrived at 10.30am, we left our bags and went for refreshments at the Witherspoon pub a few doors...

We visited the Golden Fleece recently and stayed one night and found the staff really friendly and helpful and the food excellent in the restaurant the only thing I would say is that the hotel is old and the rooms are very dated and really I need of a god makeover and upgrading👍

Old style hotel layout. Bar food on left and restaurant on the right. We went in the bar. Hadn't booked but wasn't a prob. Had to ask for table to be wiped as it hadn't been but overall service was good. Decent selection of pub grub. Had run out of quite a few items but it was nearly last orders...

Hotel is situated in an excellent position on the market square. Our room was lovely and even though it was at the front of the hotel it was very quiet. Staff are exceptional and very friendly.

Nice hotel very clean well appointed. The food at dinner was excellent we could not fault it. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Slight negative was the bathroom which for a superior double room was not really up to scratch and could do with some upgrading. Hotel is in a central location and has an extensive car park.
