Reasons for trip


I mean, it’s probably me…

I expect plenty of people have slept in that bed and had the best night’s sleep, but alas, not I.

Which is a shame because the room we booked, The Family Room could not have been better for the price. Warm and cosy, super clean, with good facilities, TV, Hairdryer, well furnished, en-suite, Tea and coffee in the room AND an excellent breakfast included in the price!

It also has free private parking smack bang in the middle of Malton and in the summer, a rarity nowadays and well received, I can tell you.

I expect the place to be buzzing with folks from the pub of an evening, in the nice looking seating area below (which might not suit some lighter, early-to-bed- sleepers) but back in November, it was perfect for our needs, and despite the fact that we had to book elsewhere for food, we were just walking distance from everywhere.

And the hosts, Nick and Lisa just couldn’t do enough for us either. From the very detailed and entertaining emails (I felt like I was chatting to an old friend in Lisa), to Nick’s amazing breakfast the next morning, they really looked after us like family, so I give them 12 out of ten for all that.

No, sadly it was the mattress which let us down. It was just too old, too “springy” (it literally made that ‘BOING’ noise at one point, which reduced us to fits despite our fatigue… It left us literally rolling together every time one of us moved, which is not as fun as it sounds, with a broken back.

As I say, it’s probably me. I have to have a very expensive one at home so this is always a problem when I book places I haven’t stayed in before. Surprisingly, never an issue at a Travelodge? If I could have given the Rose and Crown four and a half stars, I would have, because everything else was super. It was just the lack of sleep.

One more point, the rooms are at the top of a steel staircase which I managed but a wheelchair user would not. Not a criticism, but it needs mentioning. This is not a ground floor room or has a lift.
