We drove a long way to Hawes especially to eat lunch at Simonstone Hall and were not disappointed. We were welcomed warmly and shown to the Brasserie. Our waitress was friendly, efficient and very helpful. The main course meals we ordered were delicious and beautifully presented. We finished our drinks on the terrace overlooking the stunning gardens. It was a... More

We called in for a light lunch, a roast beef sandwich and ploughman's lunch. The roast beef sandwich arrived accompanied by a cheese sandwich which was returned. When the Ploughman's arrived, there were 3 slices of cheese although Brie was in place of the Stilton which was described on the menu, the bread roll was white instead of brown as... More

This is a great place to stay... The countryside to start with is so special.... beautiful views over Hawes and beyond, just like we hoped it would be. The room was huge and very gracious and very comfortable... The staff seem very happy and obviously love it there... Food was good and fresh. Would go again anytime...

My partner and I attended a family wedding and stayed for one night. On arrival the staff were very helpful. We'd asked for a room with a large bed and although the first room we were allocated was beautiful, the bed was too small. The hotel team quickly showed us round some other rooms and we finally settled on room... More

Stayed for one night for a quick break. Friendly staff, spotlessly clean. Extremely comfortable bed. Beautiful views, good food. Conveniently located. 1 1/2 miles from Hawes. Walks straight from hotel. Dogs welcome. Would definitely stay again.

I find it bewildering that so many of Britains lovely country house hotels are let down by poor food and untrained staff. Simonstone Hall is a classic example. The building and grounds are wonderful with fantastic views over the Yorkshire Dales but that where it grinds to a halt. We spent 1 night there and we were hoping to have... More

I do like Simonstone Hall. It is in a beautiful setting, just a couple of miles away from my mother's house, and we have eaten there previously and enjoyed the food. So when I arranged a surprise 15-person family reunion get-together for my mother's 80th birthday I booked Simonstone Hall. They were very obliging, letting us have a large-ish room... More

What a find! Country House Hotel in the middle of no-where; without snooty service; very personable and friendly. Had a birthday afternoon tea last Sunday as we were passing; though I have seen before when taking my own clients out "on tour" of Yorkshire. The garden peace, views are really outstanding - I didn't want to leave. Lovely bar area... More
