My wife and I stayed here at the beginning of June on our way back from the Scottish Highlands. It was a convenient place to stop being just over half way home and very close to the motorway. In fact it is just a mile from junction 36 of the M6 and set in a quiet country village. If you... More

The Crooklands hotel has several large dining rooms/bar areas and is able to seat a coach party in a private room for dinner. We had pre-booked for 52 of us to stop in and were given a choice of meat and potato pie or scampi and chips, plus tea or coffee, for £10.95. The food portions were substantial and good... More

Have been staying at Crooklands for the past 15 years or so. I would strongly recommend it for the high standard which it has maintained all this time. The rooms, food and friendly staff are all excellent, it has an ideal location between the Dales and the Lakes. We just love going there - it's our favourite Hotel.

Was pleasantly surprised when we arrived as interior was very nice and the receptionist lady was friendly. Our room number 10 was nice but had lots of issues with the bathroom, the shower wouldn't work and sprayed out everywhere from the bottom of the pipe, the taps were extremely difficult to turn unless your hands were dry and even then...

We stayed here the one night and had booked a premier room. Not cheap but certainly the room was quality and a nice luxury. Staff - mixed; some very friendly others somewhat off hand. Food was very good and good selection of drinks. No real "atmosphere" but overall a very comfortable stay. Free and fast WIFI

Family meal. We had to eat early as they were fully booked from 730pm. Service was efficient and friendly. Pace was good and not rushed between courses. Highly recommend the home made pudding that night was steak in ale. Have the black sheep bitter excellent on draft!!! Prices good at £20 per head including drinks.

Everything about the hotel and our stay was fantastic..food, service, hospitality, location all fabulous and I couldn't fault it, but when the people in the room next door, or upstairs, I'm not sure which, got up and showered/bathed, it sounded like they were in our room. There doesn't appear to be much insulation so the noise levels are quite high.
