Lovely food great service-HelenPWestYorks, May 2016
We visited the Restaurant Sunday evening as we were staying at St Helens Caravan Park, lovely walk to the Downe Arms, we were able to sit outside in the sunshine and enjoy a fabulous meal, Our children had chicken nuggets, chips and beans with salad, I’m not a lover of “Childrens Meals” as they are usually beige plastic rubbish, however I was more than pleasantly surprised as homemade chicken in batter arrived with twice cooked chips and lots of salad, it was beautiful chicken and not at all what you usually get for children, clean plates said it all. My husband had curry which came with all the usual, rice popadoms, chutneys etc and I had Mussels with fries and bread it was delicious, puddings were to die for home made rice pudding and sticky toffee pudding and custard, we asked fro 4 spoons but our children ate them both we didn’t get a look in! it’s so nice to go away and know that what your children is eating is home made and not processed rubbish. The guy in charge was helpful and very lovely, cant wait to revisit!

Bank holiday visit for a hearty meal May 2016 – Jeff B
Having phoned in advance to ensure they served food on a Sunday evening we booked a table in the restaurant for 7 of us. Really pleased we booked as advised, as it was really busy & people were being turned away.
Good choice of meals we have 5 different mains between the 7 of us and they all came together and in good time.
My choice was steak pie, chips and peas, it was the best steak pie I had eaten. Lovely thin crispy pastry with large chunks of good quality steak.
We all had clean plates inclusive of some pudding & would recommend but book in advance to avoid disappointement.

Excellent service, Jan 2016 – Sueh2572015
We stayed for one night two weeks ago and could not fault the staff, service, food or room. A really lovely hotel, very friendly staff who could not have been more helpful. The food was superb, we would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a weekend break 15 mins from the coast.

Christmas Break…., Dec 2015 – Susieq15
First time away from home at xmas in 35yrs
We arrived Christmas Eve to be greeted with a roaring fire mulled wine and mince pies what a start.. The staff on arrival were very friendly and quickly showed us to our room which was fairly compact but beautifully clean and done to a high standard. From Christmas Eve all the way through to Boxing Day morning the experience was just what we needed total relaxation and being looked after.The staff and I mean each and everyone of them are a credit to the hotel they could not do enough for you.The food on Christmas Eve,Christmas Day and both breakfasts was outstanding compliments to the chef and staff. Would we return definitely !!!
Your hotel is beautiful pleasant place to be and we hope to be back soon.
Thank you for a wonderful stay

Relaxed and welcoming hotel, Dec 2015 – WilliamNW
We went for a half-term break and found a really relaxing and welcoming place to stay. The building is very old, dating from the 17th century, and the rooms have maintained the feel of a farmhouse.
The restaurant had specials on every evening – early bird, steak, curry – and we failed to find any meal that was neither delicious or filling. The breakfasts were similarly of a good and generous standard.
All of the staff we encountered were polite and helpful, and any requests were dealt with courteously; nothing seemed to be too much for them.

Great Hotel, Nov 2015 – Neil K
Stayed here overnight whilst attending a concert at Dalby Forest. The room we stayed in was huge with a very large bed,traditional furniture and a very large en suite bathroom with freestanding bath. The hotel was spotlessly clean,staff were helpful and pleasant and the cooked breakfast the following morning was very nice. I would stay here again.

Exceptional, Aug 2015 – Kevin
5 star staff, warm welcome , great location ,lovely choice of food ( even for vegetarians like us) comfortable rooms – lovely walk straight from the door too (they even printed a map for us )

Short Break, July 2015 – Keith A
Along with my wife we decided to have a short break at the Downe Arms, our third visit in about 19 months, we had a change of room this time choosing room 202 overlooking the church, a beautiful room and furnished very well and a very good size with a four poster bed. The staff as usual were very friendly and as helpful and could not do enough to help in any way. We had a great stay, good entertainment in the bar Friday night, the breakfast was first class with well cooked good food. We ate every night in the restaurant, all very good at reasonable prices. Can`t wait to return again you really feel you have recharged your batteries.

Friday Lunch, July 2015 – JCS54Oldham
Having passed this hotel on several occasions we decided to stop for lunch on Friday and we were not disappointed. The restaurant and bar areas are lovely and the food excellent, we will certainly stop again next time we are passing through Wykeham.

A Lovely Stay, March 2015 – hinchliffetj
This is our second visit to the Downe Arms Hotel and was as enjoyable as our first trip. We had a three night break consisting of 2 nights half board plus one night bed and breakfast. The food was delicious and wines were of a good standard, the bar is good also. The location is perfect for exploring either the coast or other parts of North Yorkshire…

Charity Ball at the Hotel November 2014 – Annika D
I organised a charity ball for 109 guests, for the 15th November, supporting the snowdrop appeal at scarborough hospital.
I chose this location for personal sentimental reasons…The ball was my first event of this scale, the staff from the day I rang and booked to the day we left were all very helpful, friendly and supportive. The function room was set up to my plans, very clean, and neat -the food – all I can say is yummy and filling!!! the staff constantly checked if there was anything I needed, but not to the point where it was annoying ( if that makes sence) – I stayed the night, so I know the accommodation is lovely, comfy, clean, tidy everything you need to have a good break, breakfast was fab! (scrambled eggs where lovely – thanks)
I will also add….. it was nice to see that the owners/management did not shy from the front of house and are extremely hands on… nothing too much trouble for anyone.
I can not wait to visit again
Steak Night September 2014 – JeannetteA1
Went here for Tuesday steak night – a short walk from St Helen’s caravan park where we were staying. Excellent value for money, steaks were cooked medium as asked, ‘real’ chips, stack of onion rings, mushroom and tomato, and best of all it was piping hot! Good service. Can definitely recommend.

My family treated us to Sunday lunch and my it was a wonderful meal. The eldest of our party being 91 and the youngest being 6 you are always a bit concerned when you are trying to please all on the quality of the meal. No need for worries here it was first class and the staff were also ..We have being back for another meal midweek at lunch time and it was just as good as so were the staff. Keep up the good work.

Real quality 19 July 2013 SandraK291
My mother and I used the Downe Arms as a base to visit family in Yorkshire. It exceeded all our expectations. The staff we met (receptionists, waiting staff, gardener, housekeeping) were friendly and effective. The hotel was comfortable, well maintained and spotlessly clean. The gardens are lovely. We ate there one night and enjoyed it. There were some lovely walks from the hotel, including a restored ice house close by.
