The location is great, right in the centre of town. The pub area looks the part, though a bit unloved, and the room was a good size and reasonably clean (the floor looked like it needed a good hoovering). We were located at the front of the building so were awoken early every morning by the clip-clop of horses' hooves... More

The hotel is very clean and the staff are exceptionally professional, helpful, friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts are of very good quality and of substantial size. The bar on an evening is cosy and very atmospheric. Room 8 is tiny, really tiny. Thankfully my girlfriend is a size 8 as any bigger would have been an issue. The tv on... More

The hotel is ideally situated for visiting all areas of the dales with the added attraction of seeing the racehorses pass your bedroom window on their way to the training gallops. We found all the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was of a good quality and the service was good. The room we stayed in felt a little... More

The White Swan is the sort of pub you find all over the Dales, quirky and old fashioned. Lovely. The food I had the first night was hot and tasty and the service was excellent. The menu however, is limited and doesn't change from lunch to dinner. Every member of staff I met was friendly and helpful. My room was... More

We didn't stay here, but ate at the brasserie which is part of the hotel. The food was well cooked and exceptionally tasty. Good wine if a little costly! This is definitely a family hotel, not to be frequented if you don't like the sound of excited children rushing around.

The hotel was lovely. The rooms were small, but had been described as small when we booked. They had everything we needed and were very comfortable. The staff were all lovely and the food, breakfast and evening meal, were really good. We met several people there on our first morning, and the lady serving breakfast brought them all drinks and...

We stayed here for two nights having stopped here in March wanted to see Middleham in the summer. The management has changed but not much else. The staff were great but the rooms need updating, our mattress had seen better days and the daily clean was non existent. Don't get a room around the back as you here the kitchen... More

We understand that the inn was under new management and we found the staff friendly and the italian cuisine with an italian chef was very good. The rooms had the quaint feel of a country inn and with a hearty breakfast we had an excellent stay.
