good location excellent staff

Posted Sep 4, 2017
Pros: The staff were very professional in a freindly way
Cons: Not a lot
Location: Though the road out side was busy, there was very little inside. Just across the road is the town centre and very nice it was too
Good two night break, good food of all kinds in the town centre. Excellent location to tour the north Yorks moors to the coast

Centrally placed.

Posted Aug 21, 2017
Pros: Very comfortable. Good parking.
Cons: Separate dining room.
Location: Just 10 minute walk to North York Moors Railway.
Welcoming staff. Good facilities. Slightly disappointed there was no separate residents' dining room. If I had eaten in on the Saturday night I would have had to have shared with a 100+ wedding.

Great location

Posted Jun 8, 2017
We chose this location because Castle Howard and Whitby within driving distances. The town has supermarket. It situated at the corner of the town with its own parking lot. Gas station down the road. Staff very helpful, great food in dining room with ambiance, and lovely backyard for your cocktail.

Excellent hotel at the centre of Pickering

Posted May 21, 2017
Pros: Good situation. Friendly, attentive staff. Good and well-prepared breakfast menu.
Location: Steam railway within easy reach. Interesting and attractive places to visit, such as Scampston Hall. Lots of good walking.
We spent a week in Pickering, staying at the Best Western Forest and Vale. Our stay was excellent in every way. The room was well-appointed and clean, there was a good and varied breakfast menu, and the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. Although the hotel is at the centre of town, our room overlooked a very pleasant garden, and we were not disturbed by traffic noise. Good car parking facilities.
