  • "Excellent accommodation ideally located for shops and restaurants"

  • "We booked this property to spend some precious time with family and loved ones between the Christmas and New Year period."

    It was fabulous, the configuration works well between the main rooms and the bedrooms. The quality of furnishings and fittings were excellent and would definitely book it again. The Hamper and beautiful Christmas decorations made such a lovely added touch. We really had no complaints at all but to offer helpful feedback we found some of the rooms a touch cold, the windows a little noisy when it was windy, there was quite a bit of noise from the pubs directly outside even after 2am but to be expected considering it is in the middle of the town centre, the lack of a communal toilet on the main floor meant that everyone had to use one guests bedroom's facilities which was a little inconvenient for that guest, the lift stopped working once with children in it and one of the bedrooms had a spot of plumbing trouble when flushing the toilet and taking a shower. But these really were very minor issues and certainly did not detract from an amazing time had by all. Thank you, we loved it!

  • "A beautiful well designed and equipped property in a fantastic central location ."

    Guisbrough provided plenty of places to eat and drink and walk and was a short bus journey away from Whitby and Saltburn on sea which were both beautiful.

  • "A fantastic property for a large group of people right in the middle of lovely Guisborough."

    The property had quirky bits & character , was well furnished and well equipped . Plugs in the bedrooms were a bit odd in that they were too far away from mirrors to be able to use the hairdryer but that’s just a silly niggle. We loved the place and will definitely stay again . The welcome pack went down well too

  • "Fantastic accommodation for large family gathering with plenty of space and cooking implements for feeding the 18 of us!"

    It felt really luxurious and was great value! The hamper was a nice touch and meant we didn't need to rush out for teabags straight away! It was very convenient being in the centre of town, though it was a bit noisy on the weekend nights due to the very nearby pubs... However we definitely hope to stay again!

  • "Beautiful property, very comfortable and caters for everyone with it having a lift."

    Loads to do and see in the area as well. We had a great weekend. The only thing we would say is it could have done with a general use toilet on the top floor, the only toilets were en-suite so you had to head back to your room to go to the toilet, other than that perfect!!!! We loved it and would definitely stay again.

  • "Overall an excellent place to stay with a large group."

    The rooms are lovely and well furnished. The facilities are excellent. A couple of niggles: - The light in the fridge is flickering like crazy which is surprisingly unpleasant - blinds were not dropped in bedrooms despite it being a sunny day and the house was stiflingly warm (especially top floor) on arrival. Suggest you shut windows and blinds if you anticipate a hot day. - no blinds on south facing windows in the hallways, which meant on a sunny day it just got hotter and hotter. It would also help with heat retention in winter. - window opening set too small to produce a significant breeze. I appreciate that it is a safety feature, but could you have the locking bolts set a bit further up for a larger window open gap? Or fix the bottom window and allow the top to be dropped further thus giving a much larger opening? - the neighbouring pub was very noisy until 2am and then the clientele staggered around the high street shouting at each other. This may have been the heat or maybe this is just a normal weekend. Either way several of our guests suffered very bad night's sleep. I'm not sure what you can do about this. Is the area around the town hall designated as residential? If so, a statutory nuisance order would be possible. It was really very noisy! All of that said, it is a wonderful property for a large party. I would happily book it again for a similar event. All our friends thought it was fabulous. Many thanks. Marty

  • "Me and my extended family really enjoyed our stay at this amazing and unique property."

    There simply isn't anything else like this. The town of Guisborough is a little gem with good food and plenty to do. One small criticism would be that although the whole property is wheelchair friendly, all the showers had narrow doors and a little lip at the bottom, making it difficult for a wheelchair user to enter a shower. None of the bathrooms are specifically wheelchair friendly, which would have been a huge bonus.

  • "Absolutely beautiful accommodation, so comfortable and welcoming."

    Location is great with plenty of eateries and shops close by (just wish we'd thought to book a table at Cookfellas because they were booked up and the food there smelled amazing, maybe next time!) Every bedroom is as lovely as the next (so we had no debates about which teenagers get the better room) and the two separate living areas worked very well for us. The kitchen is clean, nicely laid out and very well equipped. All in all we couldn't fault the entire place and we'll definitely be back again in the future if we can.

  • "Guisborough Town Hall Accomodations was perfect for our family get together."

    Everything we needed for a great stay was there. The welcome basket was beautifully filled with lovely things. The location is so central to everything, with easy access to all the lovely shops on the main street. The beds are comfy and the rooms are decorated to a high standard. I'm going to have map wallpaper in my house!!! The owners were so accommodating and easy to communicate with. The lift in the property was brilliant, we had two wheelchair users with us which made their stay so much easier than other places we've stayed. I'd recommend Guisborough Town Hall to anyone with a large group. Amazing accomodation.

    We were a party of 17 adults and children, and 2 dogs. The building is huge, beautiful inside, very clean. Every detail had been thought of with ample seating and crockery etc. Every bedroom was individual and spacious. Beds super comfy. There's an area out the back for dogs, and the location meant we had plenty of facilities on the doorstep. Parking easy, long stay across road only £4 for 24 hrs and pay on the ring go app. The housekeeping team were super friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely stay again.

The property

Nestled in the bustling market town of Guisborough in North Yorkshire, is this stunning seven-bedroom landmark building, Guisborough Town Hall.

Formerly the town hall, the Grade II listed Guisborough Town Hall enjoys a superb location on the edges of the North York Moors National Park where walkers and cyclists will find their paradise.

A stylish interior with high ceilings, character features, and disabled access throughout, this wonderful pet-friendly dwelling offers spacious group accommodation, suitable for large family gatherings to celebrate weddings, birthdays, and special occasions.

Step into the ground floor of the property, where you will find ample storage for over 20 bikes and a drying room, ideal for freshening up your pooches after walking through the moors.

Climb the stairs or take the lift up to the first floor, where you will discover five well-appointed bedrooms, each offering king-size or twin sleeping arrangements, and boast their own en-suite shower rooms to freshen up before winding down for the evening.

Continue up to the second floor, where you will be welcomed into a large open-plan living space; sure to be the social hub of your large group gathering!

Prepare culinary delights in the well-equipped kitchen, suitable for feeding large groups thanks to the impressive range cooker, fridge/freezer, and ample preparation space with a walk-in pantry next door.

There's plenty of space for all at the flexible dining space which can seat 18 people or be split into two, seating nine guests at each; don't forget the bubbly to toast to your special occasion!

After dinner, retire to the sitting areas and relax on the plush sofas as you recount the day's adventures, whilst two separate, communal snug areas offer a TV and a selection of games for evening entertainment.

For those wanting more peace and quiet away from the group, there are plenty of breakout corners to escape with a good book or catch up on any calls or emails whilst you're away.

Completing this large group accommodation are two further bedrooms on the second floor, both of which are family rooms with king-size beds and quality sofa beds, one double and one large single, ideal for parents with little ones, plus the benefit of en-suite shower rooms!

About the location

GUISBOROUGH

Saltburn-by-the-Sea 6 miles; Staithes 13 miles; Whitby 21 miles.

Guisborough is an attractive market town set in rural surroundings on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. Steeped in history, Guisborough is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the town's most notable feature is the beautiful ruined abbey, Gisborough Priory; standing in full glory, to its original height of 97 feet, the dramatic gothic east gable towers high over the market town and has become a well-known icon of the town. This bustling small town has twice-weekly market days, a good selection of eateries, excellent pubs and many independent shops. Around Guisborough sits the spectacular woodland of Guisborough Forest. Guisborough Forest & Walkway is situated in Pinchinthorpe on the outskirts of Guisborough at the northern end of the A173. It extends for 2.5 miles along part of the route followed by the old Guisborough Branch Railway line, heading west towards Nunthorpe, and east to Guisborough Forest, which is managed by Forest Enterprise. It is a gateway site to the North York Moors National Park and offers splendid views of Roseberry Topping to the south. Points of local interest include Highcliff Nab and Hanging Stone. Captain Cook 92s Monument is also within walking distance. The Cleveland Way and the Tees Link walks pass through Guisborough Forest, and are just two of the many walking routes easily accessible to visitors. This super country park has cycle trails, walking routes, bridleways, a trim trail and an easier sculpture trail. The park includes the Guisborough Walkway which runs along the former trackbed of the Middlesbrough to Whitby railway line. This includes a wetland area with boardwalks, woodlands and grasslands. You can also climb Highcliff Nab for fabulous views of Teeside and the coast. The park is also very popular with mountain bikers with a number of super trails to explore. There is an excellent visitor centre with full details of all the trails in the park. The long distant trail of the Cleveland Way passes close by, whilst nearby Roseberry Topping is well worth the climb to take in the spectacular views. An easy thirty minute drive brings you to the Heritage Coastline, with historic villages and resorts, including Staithes, Saltburn and Whitby to enjoy.

Note: No stag/hen parties.
