Unfortunately our room overlooked the back of the Inn and is close to the Co-op, who had a delivery just after 6 in the morning. We were also kept awake by the air conditioning duct of the same supermarket. This is totally out of control of The Feathers, but worth mentioning. We were in room 22. The food on the second day both at breakfast and the previous evening's dinner was poorly cooked, on the previous day it was excellent. So it's a little bit pot luck!
We had a very large room with a king size bed which was extremely comfortable. The bathroom had a large walk in shower. The Feathers is beautifully situated in the heart of Helmsley, so lovely for a stroll after dinner. It is within a short drive of Castle Howard, Rievaulx Abbey and many other attractions. Every single member of staff was warm, friendly and helpful.
