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

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.
