This gastro pub and hotel is a little gem with comfortable rooms, friendly staff, and great food. OK so the floor boards groan but that is what old places are like. It is convenient to Harrogate, the Moors and even the sea side, and at reasonable cost. Loved it!

My wife and I recently stayed here for 3 nights whilst we were in the area. We found the inn very well located by the side of one of the main roads into Harrogate, and our room was very comfortable. Our peaceful room enabled us to enjoy good nights rests; and on the first morning we looked forward to breakfast... More

Stayed here for two nights at the start of our holiday to break up a journey. Discovered the beautiful town of knaresborough and we will definitely be back. Our room was a comfortable size for a family of 4 with a double bed and fold down sofa bed for the kids. A bathroom with a bath, and a nice view... More

We arrived 11.15 a.m., on a Sunday, motoring from Warrington. Even though it was before check-in, we were welcomed and offered tea or coffee, until we could move to a room so that we could freshen up and dress for the function. The overall ambiance was of a large, ill-lit, 18th century Inn. O.K. if you like this sort of... More

This lodge on the Wetherby Road is convenient for touring the surrounding area, whether you wish to explore the stunning Yorkshire dales or visit York and Harrogate. The rooms themselves are comfortable and spacious and provided everything we needed. A shortage of shampoo and shower gel (apparently due to a delivery hitch) was easily rectified by talking to the manager.... More

My husband and I have just been to the Kestrel for lunch, and will not be returning. A great disappointment. The staff were run off their feet but still managed to be very cheerful, friendly and efficient. I would give them marks of 110% . Our problem was with the food this time around.

stopped here at 5 to 12 for lunch finally left after after 1.30. As a result we ran out of time to do things at our destination. Service completely shambolic in what is to be fair a busy pub. There just seemed to be no organisation anywhere. Shame because the food is not bad!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you're looking for budget accommodation in Knaresborough or near to Harrogate Conference Centre, this country lodge in nearby Plompton is perfect for both short breaks and business trips.The lodge is well placed for exploring the many charms of picturesque Knaresborough, historic Harrogate and unspoilt cathedral city Ripon. It's also an ideal base-camp for anyone wanting to immerse themselves in the Yorkshire Dales.Along with 10 comfy en-suite rooms, there's a pub serving a tempting menu of hearty, seasonal food together with a range of cask ales and wines. It's so cosy you could end up cancelling the hiking and sightseeing in favour of a day eating and drinking instead.But you wouldn't want to miss Harrogate's tourist treasures. Delve into antique shops, relax at the Turkish Baths, or sip a Darjeeling at Betty's iconic tearooms. Nearer home you can hunt out the cave of infamous Yorkshire witch Mother Shipton or marvel at the 30 acres of intriguing mineral formations at Plompton Rocks. ... more   less
