Had three nights stay at the Fountain Hotel 21st to 24th July 2014. My wife and I were in room 12 at the top of the building front facing into the main street. Ok so it did not stop the traffic noise, through the daytime, but at night it was nice and quiet. The room was immaculate, clean, good double... More

Stayed here overnight as part of our road trip following the route of the recent "Tour de France" Yorkshire Dales section. Basic pub accommodation not for those seeking 5 star or even 3 star hotel accommodation. BUT the welcome was cheerful, the hotel very clean, the breakfast as good as I have had in any starred establishment, very good bar... More

Stayed at the Fountain again this month, excellent value, very friendly, could not ask for more (perhaps free beer next time?). It is a pub, not the Ritz, so don't expect a limousine! And all the better for it.

This is a fairly basic hotel probably mostly catering for walkers. We had an ensuite double room which we were very pleased with. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean and serviced on a daily basis. We booked a stay at probably the most busy period (Tour de France) but were made to feel very welcome...

We booked at the last minute and managed to get the last dog friendly room. We arrived and room came supplied with dog bed, bowl and an envelope of dog treats. The hotel was clean and comfortable, though a little dated. There is a sign to say that the hotel is going through a process of refurbishment. But to be... More

Stayed here for 2 nights for a mini-break. Perfect base for walking. Room was clean with very comfortable bed. Bathroom a bit on the small side, but perfectly adequate with plenty of hot water. Fridge with bottled water for residents was a really nice touch. All the staff were very friendly, with particular mention for the charming gentleman serving breakfast.... More

Nice little B&B, clean and comfy rooms. Haven't slept in a single bed for years, but this was one of the comfiest I can remember. Wonderful view from the Car Park, but if you own a large car or a wide car then be prepared to hold your breath as it was tight in my Mini ! Friendly bunch of... More

Wanting to stay in Hawes for 1 night over Easter, the Fountain Hotel was the only place that accommodated this request (all other hotels had a 2 night minimum stay). The price was reasonable, staff were helpful and friendly and the cooked to order breakfast delicious. The room was ok, very small window so was naturally dark, and you could... More

We stayed there for a weekend, because we love Hawes, and the hotel welcomes dogs. We were shown to our room, by a lovely friendly lady. In the room was a welcome pack for our dog ( chews, poo bags etc), and a basket in the corner. We had dinner in the hotel....the bar was full, so we ate in... More
