We stayed at Red Lion in Burnsall on the 21/22 March this year and found it to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in and in saying that we have stayed in many hotels including the Savoy in London! The people who work there were just the kindest, friendliest most helpful we have ever come across.... More

This is a great family run place in a beautiful town. I just wish I could have stayed longer. If you need a break from the City, take the train to Leeds or Skipton and a taxi to Burnsall and you will have all you need for a smashing weekend at the Red Lion!!

Thank you for your lovely review, we are a rural village, but right on the bus route from Ilkley or a short taxi ride from Skipton so you don't necessarily have to bring a car ! So pleased you had a great stay and hope to see you again. Regards Rachel More

I enquired and booked by phone and email, and the staff were very helpful and quick to reply. On arrival, attentive and professional. We went up to our room, room 2 in the annex, which is showing slight signs of wear but generally feels really cosy. We loved the bath, slightly sunken into the floor. Unfortunately the hot water did... More

We stayed as a family in the last weekend of February, and I can't fault any single part of the weekend we had.

Thank you to every single one... More

Stayed here for my birthday as the first stop on the Dales Way. The rooms are comfortable, Molton Brown toiletries which are my favourite. Great selection of real ales, wine very reasonably priced. Started meal with sharing board which was divine. I had Venison steak and my partner had the Moroccan lamb shank, both of which were very good. Would... More

I was looking for a traditional pub with an atmospher in the Yorkshire Dales. Olde world and found it here. Beautiful log fire in the bedroom along with a comfortable bed and an excellent meal in the restuarant. This may not be the cheapest accommodation in the dales but in my view worth every penny. The lounge was cosy, no... More

Had a wonderful two night break just last week, even got a room upgrade. Had dinner in the hotel both evenings, excellent food and a good menu. Will definitely go back and would without doubt recommend to friends. Loved it.

A 2 night stay in a superior double booked via the website- large, warm room, big comfy bed, hot shower and Molton Brown products to ablute with meant that my failure to book a table for dinner on a busy sat night was offset by a comfortable start.
