“Disappointing”
Reviewed 4 October 2011

The whole place had an air of not being cared for. It clearly depended on C to C walkers but seemed not to appreciate that many of these would expect to be able to have a comfortable night's sleep. The bathroom which I had to share (although I thought I had booked one en-suite) was mouldy and very poorly finished, the bed was extremely uncomfortable and my room, which had small windows which could not be easily opened, had a very odd smell to it.

Room Tip: Don't go for room 6

We found the Old Bewery very pleasant. We stayed in one of the garden rooms which had twin beds. It was very spacious and had an enormous bath/shower room. We could see Richmond Castle from our window.
Breakfast was excellent. There was fresh fruit and various cereals for those who didn't want 'full English". The staff were accomodating of our special needs, particularly the lady at the front desk who went out of her way to give me internet access.
The guest house is close to the river, and we enjoyed a riverside walk with views of the old bridge and the castle.
We would love to stay longer another time.

Stayed here last week doing the Coast to Coast walk. Very clean and good en suite bathroom if a bit small. Quiet and good outdoor space. !0 minute uphill walk to town center for dinner. Great breakfast menu - Eggs Benedict a particular favourite in our party of 3 and early breakfast when asked. Pancakes sublime ! Would steal the chef if I could.

The photo gives the impression of a well loved and cared for guest house but this couldn't be further from the truth. The initial greeting is a phone number on the door with a mobile number to call to be let in. The caretaker has helpful but detached. When we discovered there was no hot water he tried to help but couldn't. He went home in the evening and there was no-one there to help at night in case of emergency. The room and bathroom were pretty basic tho the beds were comfortable. We left early and there was no one on reception to pay so we had to do it over the phone by card. All casual and remote, no cheery log fires, hot cups of tea or warm greeting here!

Worst bed I slept in during c2c walk. Since a good nights sleep is essential I would not recommend this place. I think I had room 6 (single). The bed should be replaced urgently. Also I found the place very noisy at night and as with other reviews the breakfasts were slow.

On the positive side it has a lovely lounge and outside garden area if you are lucky enough to have sunshine.
