Best Western Forest & Vale Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Pickering
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 April 2012

My partner and I stayed at this hotel last year for a weekend. It is a beautiful old building set in the heart of Pickering. The bar area is particularly lovely. Our only regret is that we did not pay for a dearer room as the one we were allocated was on the small side and very basic. However, this did not spoil our stay as the staff were always friendly and polite and the breakfasts, delicious.
It is a really good base for exploring North Yorkshire and at a reasonable price too. We shall definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more and opt for an executive room as the cheaper ones are small and basic.

The hotel and staff were excellent. Food marvellous, setting beautiful and both the wedding and reception were conducted very professionally, but with a friendly manor. I cannot praise everyone enough, we laughed and relaxed outside in the gardens where the photographs captured the day perfectly. All our guests enjoyed the moment. Thank you Forest & Vale you made our day so special.

Had a weekend here with family and it was perfect. Price, location, cleanliness, food and the staff were extremely accommodating, especially with our 2 year old! What more can I say!

We have stayed here on numerous occasions, we only live 20 miles away, we go here just for a quick night away occassionally.
We love staying here, friendly staff, clean rooms and lovely variations of rooms.
This is our little gem that we have been going to since we met 9 years ago.
We always look forward to going and we are also staying here the 1st night of our honeymoom on the 8th July in the deluxe room, i cant wait!!
Hope to be back before then though :-)

I was very pleased with my stay at this hotel. Before we even arrived the hotel called to reconfirm our booking. On arrival the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

We had two rooms booked for a weekend away and one of the rooms was upgraded to the top suite, a pleasant surprise that made the weekend even better. Both rooms were very nice and clean, as were the public areas of the hotel.

The location is just a few minutes walk from the centre of Pickering, and within easy access of the Steam Railway station. If you are planning a trip to see the railway and Whitby, I would recommend stopping in Pickering instead of Whitby - the location is quieter and this hotel is better than any we saw in Whitby, but you're not too far away to take a trip to the seaside.

We didn't eat at the hotel so I can't comment on the food, but the dining area looked spacious and the menu looked good.

I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially for the friendly staff, the large clean rooms and the location
