I visited Laurel Bank with my boyfriend in August 2011, and it was truly lovely; Brenda is a tremendous hostess.
On arrival we were informed (very apologetically) that there had been a booking mix-up, and we were allocated a twin room instead of the double we'd requested. It was no real issue though, because the room was truly lovely; everything at Laurel bank is new-looking, wonderfully clean and truly welcoming.
The information packs in the rooms are very useful when exploring the local area, and were amply supplemented by Brenda's willingness to help.
As for the breakfast: wow. Bacon, eggs of choice, sausages, cereal, toast beans - all locally sourced and scrumptious, and we certainly needed it for our journey to Goathland.
The breakfast booking system is also incredibly efficient; in filling in a small form the night before you know what to look forward to, and also help reduce waste.
Overall, Laurel Bank was lovely and we wished we could have stayed another night. Pickering itself is interesting, and the steam train is simply awesome. We only made it as far as Goathland, but are planning on returning again so that we can get to Whitby!
