We booked into the Listers Arms as we could not get accommodation in Harrogate for the Sunday night that we needed - so decided to have one night in the Dales beforehand. We are so pleased that we made this change to our plans as we had a lovely stay at the Listers Arms which was really very good. The... More

We stayed three nights and found this a very comfortable and friendly Inn. The location is excellent, facilities are very good, staff helpful, and the dining good quality. Dinner menu is perhaps a little limited.Very pleasant seating areas, inside and out..I had adouble room in The Cottage which was very good (annex connected to main building, no problem at all)

Just spent one night at the Listers whilst visiting the lovely village of Malham in North Yorks. The rooms were very cosy, both the dinner and breakfast was beautifully prepared and served in very pleasant " bistro " type surroundings and the range of beers in the bar were excellent. The staff were very welcoming and went out of their... More

First impressions of this hotel were wonderful. However, the next morning a series of events made us quickly change our minds. The shower door was completely jammed and when we told a staff member that we were disappointed not to be able to shower before breakfast her reply was quite alarming. She stated that they knew about this and had... More

The Lister Arms is great for people who want a short stay break within the Yorkshire National Park and caters very well for walkers etc. It was unfortunate that when we stayed the weather was really hot and sultry. We had an upgraded Superior Room, very well furnished with a comfortable large bed. the BIG PROBLEM was that the Gothic... More

Charming cozy Inn with a lit fire. Food is absolutely gorgeous. Breakfast with strawberries and open for special demands. I asked for cheese and had lovely Cheddar, my son had Bacon buns even if they were not on the breakfast menu. The staff is very service minded, smiling and doing their utmost to satisfy any demand.
