Good and points. The room was frankly poor. It was a first floor Nidderdale one with tired paintwork and furniture. Decent sized bath in a tiny bathroom. I was amazed that the sheets and duvet were polyester and not cotton. It all felt cheap. Dinner was the tasting menu. Food was first rate and faultless. Wine a total disaster; bottle... More

Discreet service from supremely trained and capable staff, wonderful surrounds, lavish decor, great food: it's a potent blend of success at this truly magnificent hotel. Having just stayed there for a large chunk of August, I can attest that this is a hotel at the top of its game and an absolute joy to experience.

We visited the Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey on two occasions for the food festival 7 course evening meal and an overnight stay. I'm not very familiar with this region, so we enjoyed exploring the beautiful location, but the hotel itself and facilities were really excellent and we enjoyed both our experiences here immensely. From arrival and car parking we... More

Visited an event here and stayed for one night afterwards in a beautiful room followed by a tasty breakfast. The Devonshire Arms is situated in such a beautiful place, great location near Bolton Abbey. I enjoyed using the spa facilities and eating in the great restaurant, will definitely visit again.

A lovely visit for afternoon tea to celebrate my wife's birthday. Stunning location and traditional decor. The food and Service was first class. I look forward to visiting again for an evening meal around Christmas time. Pride of North Yorkshire.

Eddie the concierge extended the warmest welcome we’ve ever experienced on arrival at a B&B / hotel. He sets the bar extremely high and his hospitality was maintained throughout our stay by all Devonshire Arms staff with just the one very notable bad apple... The receptionist at the pool / gym was far and away the rudest member of staff... More

We were here for the 'Sauvignon Blanc' dinner with stay overnight - essential after all the alcohol provided (and consumed)! We stayed in a slightly larger room than normal (The Fisherman) and it did not disappoint. We wanted for nothing, the bed was exceptionally comfortable and, contrary to recent experience of room facilities in other hotels, everything worked! I'd particularly... More

This hotel is in a beautiful setting with lovely long walks in the countryside. Bolton Abbey is worth a visit and the surrounding countryside is breathtaking. The hotel is lovely with comfortable reception rooms and character bedrooms. We ate in the brassiere and the food was very good. This hotel caters for dogs with personally we think is excellent as...
