We stopped here for a night last week en-route to Whitby. With hindsight we perhaps should have had two nights here!
Ok - so Mexborough doesn't immediately inspire the traveller, and this hotel is just on the edge of town, and in a fairly quiet location. We didn't want to drive all the way to the North East as we had a late start, and so we stopped here, and I'm glad we did. There's a large car park to the front, and opposite the hotel is the 'partner' pub / restaurant, which gives guests two eating options.
I have to say that our bedroom was one of the nicest we've seen anywhere, and we had an en-suite bathroom that was straight out of 'Ideal Home' - really posh for the dosh and has given my wife some great ideas for the bathroom I'm now going to have to overhaul at home.
We had everything needed for a comfortable stay, a very nice tv, good courtesy tray, a fan, extra pillows, an iron, hairdryer...etc. Very well thought out room.
Nice public areas, a good bar and restaurant [we used the pub across the car park to eat, which was excellent, good value - big portions]. Staff seemed friendly enough, and so a deserved 5 stars for this place - highly recommended. less
