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

There were eleven of us staying in seven rooms the first weekend of July. I had booked the Fountain as they could accommodate all of us, and the reviews seemed good. We all arrived at varied times on a sunny Friday afternoon.All check ins were fine. The rooms vary in size and style, but we agreed that all our rooms... More

No doubt I am a victim of preconceived ideas. When I picture a pub in a Dales village I am sad enough to assume that they will all be cosy bars with tight rooms, old dark furniture and a fire big enough to roast a pig. Of course many Dales pubs are like this - but not the Fountains. With... More

It was wet and cold last weekend but nice and cosy at The Fountain Hotel. Currrently undergoing decoration and updating. We had a newly refurbished room with a view south onto the main street and beyond. Lots going on in Hawes even though we found the weather too bad to tackle any of the major walks such as the Pennine... More

Great value. Breakfast was cooked to order and a great start to the day. I had a single room which was spotlessly clean. The bath was nice and deep with plenty of hot water. It's not 5 star luxury, but it's not 5 star luxury price. I will definitely use this hotel again. There was a group of 14 of... More

Good points: Friendly staff, excellent beds, firm and clean, kettle, TV. Not so good points, wifi worked half the time, decor was from the 90's and bath seemed loose, stand in it for a shower and it sunk 5mm, no working extract in the bathroom. Also for the money, it seemed expensive for what it was. 20 years ago it... More

This is the third time that we have stayed at the Fountain, and as expected, it was fantastic. Our party consisted of three adults, three children and a dog so we needed two rooms which were finished to a very high standard and were exceptionally clean. The breakfast and bar menu's were varied, and the meals were delicious. The owners... More
