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

We stayed for a couple of days on a walking break. The place looks a bit dated but is being renovated (there was a notice). The room was large, with plenty of space. Breakfast was fine. However WiFi was inexistent. It never worked during our stay and the managers seemed surprised. It is annoying when we include as a 'must... More

Stayed for one night touring the Dales. Back room had recently been refurbished and had a wonderful view of the Dales. Think the front may have been less quite as it is in the Main Street. Breakfast very good. More refurbishments due and must say needed in some areas particularly the breakfast room. Parking a bonus as limited in Hawes,... More

The Fountain Hotel at Hawes is a great place to take lodgings if you are walking the Pennine Way, or doing anything else in the locality for that matter. Angus and Mandy McCarthy are great hosts, the rooms, with TV's are clean and cosy and they put on a terrific "Full English" breakfast. Certainly for the hale and hearty.

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
