Good Hotel Guide Review
In a quiet Yorkshire village, a mile from lovely Runswick Bay and on the edge of the North York Moors, this country inn is a beacon of good service, and is great value, too. Mark and Georgie Alderson seem to have thought of everything that outdoor-loving guests might want for a comfortable stay. Family and dog-friendly, the sandstone inn, with its climbing roses and window boxes, offers neat and fuss-free bedrooms with breezy colours and light oak furniture. All have fresh milk, robes and king- or super-king-size beds while modern bathrooms, most with bath as well as shower (be aware, the shower-only ones are small), have Elemis products. The best share a balcony overlooking an inviting garden with colourful planters, and sturdy wooden tables and chairs for alfresco dining. Or you can relax in a ‘pretty and very comfortable residents’ lounge in a conservatory’. Food, served in both bar and restaurant, includes ‘superior’ pub classics from home-made beef lasagne and pies to steaks and Whitby scampi, and there are good vegetarian options. Staff are ‘keen to ensure you have everything you need’. (LW)
