Started Dales Way here, nice welcome, we were in room 6, shared loo and shower, if you on the large size would struggle to move round room, to get to other sde of room you have to go over the bed, Nice breakfast, friendly staff.

We unfortunately has a booking misunderstanding when we arrived at the hotel, the manager Angie, was terrific and offered us a smaller room -with shared facilities-for the night. We were so grateful. The food in the pub was terrific, the breakfast and the service by the morning girls were fantastic. A great tight knit team. Thanks for the opportunity to... More

We stayed here for 2 nights (Mon - Tues). Nice pub with good local ale, friendly staff and the breakfast were particularly good. The cost was £80 Mon & £85 Tues very expensive for a pub. The rooms were clean and tidy but if you're going to stay here don't bring your cat; no room to swing it. One person... More

We stayed here for one night over the bank holiday weekend. The location was fab - very central but not noisy. Food wonderful, not cheap but good quality. Service great too (particularly the girl serving food/breakfasts) nothing was too much trouble. Room small but had everything we needed. Would stay again.
