From the moment you enter the place you can see whoever came up with the concept of this place is a little bit bonkers but that's good we like bonkers! The place is quirky and fun to be in. The staff are amazing, can not do enough to help you. We arrived and had late lunch, a "beef sandwich" but... More

A really nice hotel but disappointed that the upgraded room we were recommended to book by the hotel was a let down. The themed heifer room sits immediately above the kitchen and as a consequence is red hot. There is also a large ventilation duct for the kitchen which wraps around two of the external walls to the room and... More

I can't even remember now how I found out about this place but on looking at their website I thought it would be great to treat my husband to a weekend away here. As he is a serious chocoholic I knew I wanted to book the chocolate room but it was only 2-3 months before his birthday so it had... More

The Hotel is excellent, the service by the staff is exceptional and they serve the best seafood I've ever experienced, the Lobster Thermidor is superb! The quality of this hotel is second to none, I can highly recommend it.

Stayed on one of their special weekends. It was magic from the word go. The staff were very helpful but not over powering.Nothing was too much trouble and the food was really good and well presented.Our room was beautiful and had little extra touches. For example a lovely teddy on the bed and a welcoming anniversary card, and as well... More

Stayed in the Wensleydale Heifer for one night during our short break in the Yorkshire Dales in August and were delighted with the overall experience. The staff were very attentive without being over bearing, the room was good and the food was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this Hotel for a short break especially if you can take up one...

We had stayed twice before and when we wanted somewhere to go on our honeymoon, we thought straight away of the Heifer. We went for the 2 day gourmet break which was just fantastic. We were so well looked after from start to finish by the excellent, proud and passionate staff and the levels of service and hospitality were second... More

We visited the Heifer last week and were in time for their early bird deal. We have a wonderful, mainly seafood, meal that was one of the highlights of a week in the Dales. Wine or beer by the glass not too expensive and overall very good value from the early menu.

a wonderful place to stay - lovely individual rooms, absolutely fantastic food - famous for its fish and seafood, but now developing a grill side. Staff are the most helpful, friendly and welcoming staff I have ever met.

A not to be missed hotel experience. Quirky rooms, friendly attentive staff and fabulous food. We stayed in the Whisky Room which was very well decorated and comfortable and had a tot of whisky left for us both. The bar, lounge and restaurant were all very well welcoming and we were looked after very well.

Many thanks for your kind review, and thank you for the recommendation! We hope you both enjoyed your complimentary tot of whisky, and it set you up nicely for your evening meal! We do hope to see you both again soon, maybe you could try another of our 13 themed rooms and see what treats await you in those! More
