3/5 Okay

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Food was fairly good and location was convenient. Room was quite small, beds were squeaky, shower badly planned - v small with no room for shampoo etc, inadequate shelving for toilet necessities. Overall room rate was more that the facilities could justify.

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is located a few miles out of Skipton Which gave a nice location with stunning views. Good location for visiting local attractions.Could perhaps do with refreshing a little but did not spoil an Exellent weekend away location.good choice of food in restaurant

We stayed 2 nights to explore the Dales. Perfect spot, friendly and helpful staff. Room was basic but had everything we needed and was clean. Rooms at the front have better views.
