We have a cottage very near this lovely hotel. It is the place we go to for supper or lunch. The staff are always good and attentive and remember us. Love it. Food good and always welcoming. We would not go anywhere else .

i have known this venue for most of my life but had not visited in more than a decade. The building is beautiful and occupies a surreal location with views to rival many in the world. However, the menu for dinner is restictive especially for vegetarians. There were two dishes on offer, one a "Green veg risotto " and the... More

Went for Sunday lunch with a group of fifteen. They provided a brilliant long table for all of us by the window, so that we had spectacular views over the valley. Staff had made a real effort to put in such a great spot. Food was also brilliant as was the service. Carvery was top value. All in all we... More

The hotel is located in an absolutely beautiful location with wonderful views from the outdoor terrace but we would not return. Family birthday celebration lunch. Waitress unwelcoming. Even when mentioned that we were celebrating a birthday failed to show any interest. Felt completely functional service. Soulless and uninspiring dining experience.

We checked in on 28 April and were shown our room by a pleasant attentive receptionist. A description of the rooms is now provided on the online booking so we knew what to expect and we were very pleased with our choice. A large ensuite room with bath ,shower and toiletries and a beautiful ever changing view according to the... More

What a wonderful setting! Amazing views over to Hawes with lambs playing in the fields. The sun was shining during our stay here which really made it do relaxing. The room was clean, bed extremely comfortable. Tea,coffee,biscuits and bottles of water provided. For evening meal we ate in the brasserie. Previously when we have stayed, there was also a specials... More

The setting of the hotel is outstanding with views across the hills and fields. At the time we stayed the fields were full of baby lambs a joy to watch. The hotel inside does not quite match the view. We were in room 15 which had no view looking onto a building at the side of the hotel which had... More

The food did not live up to expectations. The starters of terrine and scallops were nice but not exceptional and i didnt realise you could get scallops that... More

The hotel setting is amazing and the views from the terrace are breathtaking. The hotel itself is a little disappointing. The reception hall has a few tub chairs when it is crying out for large comfy settees. The sign on the little reception desk asks you to enquire at the bar if there is no one on reception. We were...
