The location of the Lodge is awesome. The views were stunning, peaceful & relaxing. Yes the drying room, fantastic. The food, service and location of the dining room, tic tic. Being a dog lover, I loved the sign in the bathroom that said 'Please don't wash your muddy boots & dog in the shower' as there is a wash pad... More

Just returned from a fantastic weekend staying at Keld Lodge where the hotel was very clean and the service and food was nothing but excellent. Matt and his team make you feel welcome from the moment you walk through the door. Located at the top of Swaledale where the scenery is stunning we will most certainly be returning in the... More

The views from the dining room were gorgeous, the food was delicious and the beer was plentiful and well kept. The room was clean of a good... More

This is hands down my favorite place in our 17 day trip on the C2C trail. Everything was terrific. I know everyone comments on the drying room. It may seem like an unlikely perk, but it is necessary. The lounge is very nice, the rooms were very comfortable with nice views of the landscape. The food was terrific.

Decided to head off with my camera for the day into the wilds of Yorkshire as it was such a gorgeous autumn day...stopped off here, completely unplanned, and though I was disappointed they only had sandwiches on the lunch menu, the service was impeccable... I didn't want sandwiches, so they said they would make me a salad, it was HUGE,... More

We stayed here as we walked the Coast to Coast Trail. It is great place to stay among the through the Dales. The rooms are comfy and well appointed. The food is excellent and great choices of beers. The staff are very accommodating and the drying room was the best along the whole route. Both dinner and breakfast had many... More

Had a wonderful stay during my coast to coast walk. Amazing service, great team, a warm clean room, delicious food with an added perk of a drying room. Perfect for walkers. Planning my next visit already!

Lovely stay in keld lodge, nice place in an amazing area, very nice manager and other staff, our visit was spoiled only by the owner Nick, I have never met such an arrogant man in my life! Very rude, condescending and generally ignorant. Maybe he did his hospitality course in Auschwitz? Who knows? Consequentially we will never go again.

We believe this review to be false from an unhappy supplier. Regrettably this review demonstrates Tripadvisor's lack of accountability. More

We loved our stay here- the location boasts amazing views and the staff are so attentive- as mentioned in other reviews. An effective drying room is always a plus. We had great meals and were included and welcomed into the local annual harvest auction which felt special- gaining mint matchmakers!! we will definitely return
