One night - Dinner, Bed & Breakfast - Excellent food and service. So enjoyed meeting the locals and their dogs in the bar in the evening. Bar service excellent and a good range of draught beers - made such a refreshing change from the wilds of Wyoming.

Stayed here 2 nights with 3 sons and families - 8 adults and 4 children. Good standard of rooms, lovely staff and great food. Very welcoming and relaxing. Only one little point, windows could do with roller blinds to make more sleep friendly as a couple of rooms had external lights shining.in during night.

We were really happy. We had a downstairs room so had easy access for the dog. Many other dogs staying so everyone friendly! Staff were lovely not stuffy but friendly, polite and efficient. The upgrade package included a bottle of prosecco, strawberries & shortbread..........all beautiful! Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Super breakfast, with good variety. Dinner menu changed totally each night... More

We visited Skelwith Bridge after a previous stay some 5 years ago, very little has changed. Hotel overall quite old and tired ( like most of it's clientele ). Is in need of a major update and serious investment. Service and food is good breakfast being the best meal. Could also do with sorting their Wi Fi and television reception.... More
