The hotel was clean.The food was okay and the bedrooms
clean and tidy. Raining hard when we arrived,so happy to
pay only £2.00 to park that Bar man filled in for us(new to this parking concept) Problem was he didnt mention "Zones" and we got a £25.00 fine that came on Sunday 4th. Saturday evening being tired we stayed in bar and opened a TAB and booked Sunday Breakfast,retired early.Greated by this "Bar Man" who came over saying (in front of everyone having Breakfast, that we had not paid our Tab.Embarrased I said that in "Normal Hotels you pay before you leave...but not hear...they don't trust you !!.That night we went back in the bar for dinner and a drink and was refussed a tab because it was not allowed.then a couple came beside us to eat and were given a Tab.We ate up went to bed and left before breakfast, prefering a friendly welcome in Pickering on the way home. If that Bar man was the Owner - I would think about how to improve his cutomer service techniques.
