The Bridge Hotel & Spa is in the hamlet of Walshford in North Yorkshire. The hotel is said to stand exactly halfway between London and Edinburgh, so it's not surprising that there is a 17th-century coaching inn at the core of the hotel building. Today, the property is five minutes' drive from the A1(M) and is "well-connected" (The AA) for day trips.

The hotel is less than 10 minutes' drive from the market town of Wetherby, home to Wetherby Racecourse, which hosts racedays from October to July. Bramham Park -- a sprawling wooded estate with an 18th-century manor -- is a 15-minute drive away.

You can also drive 15 minutes to Knaresborough and see Mother Shipton's Cave or the ruined 14th-century castle, or venture 30 minutes by car to spend the day at Newby Hall, Fountains Abbey or Lightwater Valley theme park. The nightlife of Leeds, the spa town of Harrogate and historic York -- "the North's most compelling city", according to Rough Guides -- are also around 30 minutes' drive from the hotel. The North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales national parks are 40 minutes' drive away. 

The hotel boasts a spa with an outdoor hot tub, two saunas, an ice fountain and a steam room (spa access is £15 per person for three hours and must be pre-booked). The cosy bar is adorned with oak panelling dating back 250 years, and the restaurant serves classic British dishes. Wi-Fi is free.

From arrival until leaving we cannot fault anything, we were greeted with a warm welcome, the bar staff were helpful and the evening meal was excellent. Our room was very comfortable and we had a good nights sleep, we then departed after a good choice breakfast, we will go back next year.

The staff who served the evening meal were very obliging, they had a French waiter who bent over backwards to please and was pleased with some help we gave him for the future.

Excellent value for money. Five course meal was excellent. Staff fantastic - nothing was too much trouble. Dining room strange mixture of designs! Room adequate but next to the Spa so had a strong smell in corridor. No heating in en-suite nor any hooks to put towels on after use. Biggest problem was the noise from above caused by insufficient insulation. We could hear every footstep from the room above! Not the fault of the people in the room! Mentioned this to receptionist who said she would pass it on. Advise not to be in room 36.
