Can highly recommend the Arches. Friendly welcome, lovely well equipped bedroom and shower, and very good breakfast efficiently served. Parking permit provided for two days much appreciated. Will certainly stay here again.

Located on a... More

We stayed at the Arches in July 2014 for 3 nights. The room was spotless, I'm asthmatic and have a severe allergic reaction to dust mites, I had no reactions. The breakfast was served within 5 minutes of us arriving in the dining room, piping hot, well cooked and delicious. The proprietors were friendly and approachable, giving advice on the... More

We stayed at The Arches 27/06-01/07 and had a thoroughly lovely experience. We arrived to a warm and friendly welcome, were shown to our room, and were served a pot of proper "Yorkshire" tea and scrumptious biscuits whilst breakfast times, parking permits etc were explained to us. Our room was spotless with beautiful soft bed linen, fluffy plump towels, quality... More
