Have stayed at the Lister a few times and the night we had at the end of April was as good as the rest. I originally booked 3 nights but had to reduce the booking to 1 due to an unexpected hospital visit. This was not a problem for the hotel and I wasn't charged anything for the cancelled nights....

We have just revisited our favourite Inn/Hotel in the stunning village of Malham, Yorkshire.. We stayed in a standard double in the Garden House which in many hotels would have been classed as deluxe. The soft furnishings were beautifully coordinated, the bed was huge and comfortable.The lighting was very well planned and catered for low mood lighting or brighter lights.... More

We ate lunch here on the late May bank holiday Monday. It's a charming setting in the middle of Malham, the dining room is charming and the pub very cozy. The menu is a decent selection of modern British pub food, and the food we ate was all very nice. However, I've reviewed as merely 'Average' as the service was... More

Nothing special, attracted solely by its location but could have done much better by staying elsewhere, staff were offhand unless you were a local and serving staff paid more attention to patting and cuddling all the dogs in the bar that serving food. Hope the kept washing their hands !

Thank you for your review. We welcome all comments positive and negative. We are very surprised but sorry to hear your comments about the staff. As far as giving priority service to the locals, this is not something we do, we are not sure as a visitor how you know who is local and who is not? Also we have... More

Visited the Lister Arms to eat during a recent trip to Malham and I was really pleased with the choice. Malham is a beautiful place and The Lister Arms looks lovely nestled across the beck, especially when lit up at night. The food was great - particularly excellent were the liver pate and the slow cooked beef. Staff were pleasant... More

The Lister Arms is a great place to stay! All staff are amazing - friendly, helpful, nothing too much trouble. Great accommodation and superb food with a well stocked bar of real ales. This is by far the most dog friendly place we have stayed with dog beds provided in the bar and lounge areas. Ideally situated for walking and... More

Off the beaten track, just into the Yorkshire Dales National Park the Lister Arms is a great place to stay for exploring the area. It's dog friendly - although our old dog did have some difficulty in negotiating the stairs up and down to our room. The room was large with huge comfy bed. The en suite shower room/WC was... More

We went for my husband's 50th birthday. Lister Arms in Malham is a fantastic base to explore the cove, falls, gorge. The food was quality and the service was helpful. And the rooms are comfortable for a family. We hope to return next year.
