Stayed for one night with my girlfriend on the second night of a hiking holiday. We arrived a little early so were sheltering in the car for a little while before the pub opened. The lights didn't come on until about 10 minutes after the advertised opening/check-in time, but once we were in doors the lady who greeted us was... More

Modest, clean, fairly priced rooms. Very friendly service. Great food. Flexible and accomodating to unforseeable change. Located on the doorstep of the Yorkshire Dales which makes for some great exploring. Also conveniently located along the A65 giving easy access to Lancaster or Skipton.

Booked two rooms to meet friends early in the New Year. Didn't expect a lot as it was so reasonable. (£128 for 4 of us including breakfast) However, we were pleasantly surprised. rooms were fine, staff friendly and lovely food in the restaurant. We were able to do a short walk the following morning, leaving the cars at the hotel.... More

10 of us stayed here over the New Year and found it a good place to stay for the most part - the rooms were comfortable with extra heating if needed and a small residents lounge and the dining room pleasant. The food was good - better than average pub meals and great breakfasts and nice serving staff so good... More

We needed somewhere to stay last minute and booked the Craven Arms. Stayed one night B and B. Room was relatively small but perfectly functional. Shower hot and wifi fast. Had a great meal - well presented and great value for money. Breakfast choices good. Would recommend - good value for money.

A friend who lives in nearby Settle had died, and we were looking for overnight accommodation while attending the funeral. When close to the outside of the hotel it appeared to need external decoration, and there was some evidence of recent building work. However inside it had been recently decorated and was clean and warm. The furniture in the dining... More

Just got back from staying two nights here. Can't say there was anything to complain about but also nothing to rave about either. There were 3 of us in a room with a double and bunk beds - you wouldn't want 4 people in there. Not much room and the shower room was quite small too. Towels and toiletries weren't... More

Stopped off here for some food with a group of friends. We were promptly seated and some water was brought round to the table straight away. Service was prompt and friendly and the food wasn't a disappointment either, beautifully presented and delicious. It was fairly pricey, all the main dishes were over £10, however there was an option on some... More
