Fantastic local hotel, warm and welcoming. Staff are excellent, Food and accommodation are great. Fab location in centre of an historic Yorkshire market town. Service was fantastic, especially when plans had to change for the 2nd night stay. Would recommend highly if staying in the area.

Great staff and food as always. Hotel is being renovated in stages at the moment but didnt cause us any concerns. Cant wait to see what they do. Rooms are being done gradually at the moment and our favourite room the Dick Turpin Suite is due for its refurb soon, always a pleasure to stay at the Golden Fleece.

This hotel was a pleasure from start to finish. Greeted like one of the family, stayed in a beautifully warm room and ate like a queen at breakfast, so I'm glad I will be back next week!

The Hotel is looking a bit dated but I understand a major refurbishment is planned very soon, the Hotel is sited right in the Market Square which is very handy for all Thirsk as to offer and also it has the added benefit of a Car Park at the rear.
