2/5 Poor

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Avoid this place
Poor tired bedrooms, cramped and definitely not worth £120 a night. Manager was quite rude and not helpful at all and very abrupt with his young staff who were lovely. As we checked in with the manager his first words were that you havent booked a table with us tonight for a meal and the restaurant is fully booked tonight and tomorrow anyway! No other suggestions at all, like if we get a cancellation we could maybe fit you in or advise of an alternative venue. Another young couple who we spoke to got the same treatment. Breakfast was good to be fair. The other three pubs in the village offered good friendly hospitality and food. We had one drink in the Wensleydale because i didnt want to spend another penny more in the place. I think that the owners aspire to be something alot better than what they are. More like a 1 or 2 star rating at the most.
