After speaking at length to the owner of this hotel in November we booked a refurbished room with a lovely view over the valley, we were horrified on arriving to find we had been put into an 70s style room without being able to see out let alone view the lovely Wenslydale countryside as promised. We were given 2 alternative... More

It's a bit unfair to describe this hotel as average but on the other hand, I could not describe it as "very good" either. The room was on the small side but on the plus side had a bath. The breakfast was plentiful and nicely cooked. There is a residents' lounge but this was discovered by accident. The menu for... More

I stayed here for one night recently and was made to feel welcome which is good as I was on my own. The 'small' roast dinner was excellent and the portions were far from small and the breakfast was delicious. Good sized single room.

Only stayed one night but the room was clean and tidy (rear facing which are quiet as apposed to rooms at front) we did eat in the pub downstairs which was basic pub grub and enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

A good, central place to stay. Food lovely, decor a little tired around the edges, but a comfortable, warm room and bed. Staff friendly and efficient without being intrusive. Breakfast is in a dedicated room overlooking the High street. Would recommend this hotel!

A 17th Century Coaching Inn on the main through road in Hawes. Looks to be popular with the locals as well as visitors. Offers a varied choice of food and a good selection of drinks. Entered through the main bar which was packed with customers watching soccer on Sky Sports on a wide screen. We were directed to a large... More
