Arrived to a lovely little place at Giggleswick, we were greeted with a warm and friendly face, our room wasn't quite ready but that wasn't a problem as we went off into the lovely little town of settle for a look around. Our room was a lovely little place at the back with its own doorway that opened out onto... More

My wife and I got rid of the children and I wanted to take her to this part of the country as I have done a lot of walking there, so I wanted to show it off. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal in the restaurant, well cooked, well presented, well served, excellent. Following our meal we went through to... More

There are some issues with this hotel which are alluded to in other reviews. Yes - the restaurant and bar areas are nice, but the bedroom was basic. The room we stayed in had high windows, was dark, the lighting was poor and cleaning had not been done well over quite a period of time. There were many insects in... More

I had the ploughman's as an evening meal with the most divine warm pork pie as well as the usual cheese selection, chutneys and bread. It was lovely and very filling, although having said that I did make room for the lovely profiteroles, which were filled with crème patisserie just as they should be. Prices were reasonable and the staff... More

The real ales available were very welcome and in good nick. The meal which followed gave good choice and quality. Breakfast was well up to the standard of... More

I stayed here with a group of friends after a walking trip. I was staying in a family room with a "put up" bed to act as a third bed. For three of us to stay in this room was £25 each and superb value for money. The room was clean and tidy. The only downsides for me was the... More

We called in at the Craven's Arms as a last minute decision. We could not have been treated better. The effort Nick went to (even on a busy night that it was) was outstanding. The room was impeccable and the cleanest we stayed in on our entire trip (even compared to some of the high end hotels in capital cities).... More

We booked here for a night but unfortunately they had an issue with a new booking system and there was no room when we arrived. NIck was extremely apologetic and arranged for us to stay at a lovely B&B up the road at no extra cost to us. We didn't have to wait for this to be sorted and he... More

We stayed at the Craven Arms for 5 nights, everything was perfect. The room was spotlessly clean, the refreshment tray was replenished every day, Underfloor heating in the bathroom will be very welcome in the colder months. Breakfast really was fantastic, cooked freshly to order every morning with a good choice of cereals etc too. Dinner was excellent, so much... More

Stayed at The Craven Arms for a wedding that we went to in Settle. We were made very welcome when we arrived at the hotel and made use of the lovely sitting area where newspapers and magazines are provided.
