Hotel has recently been taken over. Its been spruced up and the staff offered excellent service. Our room was small but serviced every day. Bar was clean and tidy and well run. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of evening meals. Overall I would have no problem returning here for my next visit to Thirsk.
