We had dinner to celebrate my Sister in Law's Birthday in the private dining room. The food was excellent and the service was good. We stayed in a lovely room at the back of the Hotel overlooking the river. Breakfast the next morning was plentiful and delicious. We love the Inn at Whitwell. It is a comfortable homely place with... More

this place is great. I've always found it a little strange that on a weekend you can't get food until half 7! But on the whole this is a lovely place to go for food or a drink. On a sunny day you can sit out the back & watch the lambs play & sheep graze. Each room inside has... More

Many thanks for you very kind review. The food question is just one of using fresh ingredients, all prep'd before service and used during, Difficult to manage this on a rolling basis through the day without compromising quality. Hope that makes sense. Regards Cb More

well worth the drive, upon arrival greeted by a helpful young lady, who took us to our room and informed us that we could have a log fire if needed (sadly, the weather was too warm, so we didn't use this service). The bathroom and the bedroom were immaculate and well laid out, the standard of bedding and towels was... More

I'd heard so much about the Inn at Whitewell but had never been, so I booked a table for lunch for my (twin) daughters' 18th birthday. I'm so glad we went... The view from the table was wonderful, the service was very friendly and the food was excellent. My daughters had a lovely time. Two of the party were vegetarians... More

Very much enjoyed an overnight at the Inn at Whitewell. Enormous bar area with lots of rooms with log fires (even in May) and easy chairs. Fantastic selection of drinks including such rarities as freshly squeezed orange juice. Restaurant of limited size and booking essential. Length of the menu suggests everything is freshly cooked and not taken from a freezer.... More

After a long drive, and there's no other way to get here, the hotel looks and feels warm and welcoming. Passing an open fire en route to the wine shop based reception just adds to the comforting atmosphere, as do the friendly staff. You book rooms individually and ours was comfortable with a separate sitting area, traditionally but elegantly furnished... More

Went for a scenic drive and found this place on the way. Beautiful old building with lovely grounds. Bar/restaurant was busy and food stops at 2pm. However, I had a soft drink and a delicious special of a goats cheese and caramelised onion parcel and salad. Was amazing. Views beautiful. Toilets clean and well presented. Would definitely return alone or... More

Thank you for your very balanced and charming review. So sorry about the gnocchi glad we dealt with it appropriately but it's usually good. We'll have WiFi in all areas any moment, we running a cable round the buildings! Only here it's apparently the only way. No mobile I know but on balance I think that's appropriate. Thank you again.... More

The Inn at Whitewell is a magical place to stay situate in a fabulous location with stunning views and great walks along the riverbanks and surrounding countryside. I last stayed in March and upon entering the Hotel you are warmly greeted and at that time of year was met with roaring log fires in all the downstairs rooms. If you... More
