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

We stayed at the Fountain Hotel for 2 nights in November. This is a lovely, traditional country pub and the hotel is on the upper floors. Staff were friendly and helpful. There is a car park round the back which meant we could just leave the car where it was for the 2 days without worrying. Our room was at... More

Stayed in Hawes for 4 days with friends who also had a dogs. We know the area well and stayed at the edge of the village. Being November, the weather was as expected, cold and damp on some days. Doing the rounds and getting cold we started to look for a watering hole that would accommodate us and our pets.... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful but we thought the price was expensive compared to other places we have been that had nicer rooms. The bathroom especially was very uninviting and the room smelt damp when we walked in. It all seemed very clean though. Breakfast was nice enough and we were served by a very friendly efficient gentleman.

Had an excellent time in Hawes and this ridiculously friendly pub/b&b was one of the main reasons. Massive room, private car park, free wifi in both the bar and the rooms. A fridge full of free water for hotel guests too was a lovely touch. Downstairs in the bar - Lovely staff and what seemed to be a pretty decent... More
