They say photographs never lie, well they probably don’t when the picture of the hotel is probably one taken a few years ago as looking around it was not easy to see where it was taken.

Read other reviews and stayed with trepidation! The car parking is extensive and free for guests, and was virtually empty on a Saturday evening. Reception had a bell and a pleasant staff member directed us to our room. The decorations, carpets and some fittings are tired, but the rooms and corridors were clean and the bed comfy. There was tea... More

Welcome stop butit was very basic. Would not stop here again but have to say at the time we were desperate to have a break. Could not drink the coffee and sandwiches were in the stale side. Not a very inviting place

The lodge is an uner average hotel with "ghost staff" They are never arounf when needed, either on arrival or departure. The procedure seems to be dragging somewhat out of costa coffee for any questions or help. The rooms are clean and comfortable but the "Hotel" is very tired and really needs an upgrade. Still very expensive for parking.

Myself and a colleague was booked into this "hotel" for a business trip to Northallerton. The hotel on the website looked ok and it had an onsite restaurant.

The hotel itself was ok - it was clean and generally presentable if a bit shabby in parts, such as an unusable (apparently unsafe?) heated towel rail in the bathroom and a random plug in heater in the bedroom alongside what I'm guessing was an ineffective/noisy fitted heater - this was in what was titled as an Executive double....
