Have just been to this hotel and although it is in a fantastic setting and the rooms and staff are lovely it is on the busy A road so there is traffic all day and night so cannot sleep with window open. The scenery is wonderful and the staff cannot do enough to help.

Impulse booking for a midweek treat that turned out to be a really good choice. We have had mixed results here before but this evening was great. Good selection and good service. We even had to remind them to add the cost of wine on! Would go here again without hesitation.

It all started so well. We had booked a table for 18 as a post climbing meal & one was beautifully set out for us. We were asked to pre-order our food which we all did. However, the inevitable problem of 'jus' reared its ugly head as these usually contain wine & I have a serious allergy to wine! So... More

We stopped here for one night on 14th May on our way to the Lakes. Easy to find and decent parking availability. On arrival, the check in process was swift and we were shown to our room. Good sized room, everything you would need, and a comfortable bed. Went down for dinner, really good menu choices, not cheap but equally... More

We stayed a night on our way from Scotland through to the south, and chose this place for the quintessential country pub/hotel atmosphere. We were greeted on a cold rainy late afternoon with a warm and friendly welcome. The room was very comfortable, clean, warm, and surprisingly quiet for being on the main road near Settle. Great shower and water... More

A warm welcome from Nick and the team and a great atmosphere in the bar all evening created by the folk music. Clean, comfortable, great food and a perfect location for the Way of the Roses cycle ride. Will definitely be back.

Me wife and I stayed for 3 nights at the Craven Arms. The highlight, I suppose, was the quality of the food. It was consistently excellent over the 3 nights we eat there. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very reasonably priced and comfortable, though our shower was a bit small. We love real... More

We had booked the annual snooker dinner for the Settle and district league. We were not disappointed!! Excellent food, service and staff. We had a 3 course meal and couldn't fault anything. Highly recommended!! Everyone we spoke to said the same. The best yet!!
