I stayed here on business, the location is stunning, excellent food and service. The hotel rooms are well appointed with good showers. They have two restaurants the Michelin starred Burlington which was fully booked and the Bistro where we ate, the food and service were excellent.

We stayed here for the second time taking advantage of a dinner bed and breakfast offer. Everything was as good as it could be. The room was pleasant with a nice view and the bathroom looked to be recently refurbished. The weather was surprisingly good we had a pleasant walk to the abbey and back in time for drinks on...

We stayed here for 1 night to celebrate my Husband's birthday, having wanted to stay here for many years. It is in such a lovely location near Bolton Abbey and the buildings and grounds are very attractive, with quirky rooms to eat and relax in. We really enjoyed a meal in the Brasserie restaurant - the vegetarian options were good... More

My wife and I have stayed here quite a few times over the last two years when we go up to Yorkshire to see my mum. The service, accommodation, location and food are all top notch and you are made to feel like a guest rather than a customer. The two restaurants give you options for what you feel from... More

On arrival we were met at our car by a member of staff with an umbrella as it was raining very heavily. An outstanding welcome by the receptionist included a brief tour of the hotel. Our twin room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Room service was good. The Health Barn offered afternoon respite from the weather. The pool was refreshing... More

We went to the devonshire arms for one night, and purchased the "Evening with Adam" deal online for dinner, bed and breakfast. On arrival we were shown around the hotel and then to our room "Park Top". This was an upgrade from the room allocated online so we were really pleased. We went over to the spa in the afternoon...

The "Dev'" is a really great Country House hotel by any definition. From the log fire in the hallway (not always lit nowadays to conserve natural resources!), the reception table, the plentiful and willing/friendly staff, the very comfortable bedrooms, the beautiful grounds and Yorkshire fells that surround the place, the occasional helicopter that brings guests for lunch or an overnight...

This review is for the restaurant only. We dropped by on Sunday afternoon without booking and were greeted with a very warm smile from the meeter/greeter on the door. We were asked to wait in the bar for approx 5 mins while a table for four was set up. The bar area was very tidy with a nice modern feel... More

Beautiful location and a large, comfortable room, plus super helpful staff, made this a visit to remember. The spa is fairly bijou but the food, even in the brasserie, was superb. Can't wait to go again!

Accommodation, location, service, friendliness were all excellent We had a party of 13 on a work trip, and the tables were well laid out, lunch was spot on, and service levels at breakfast and dinner were both equally good. And a straightforward and enjoyable walk by the river took a couple of hours. Anything more to add?
