We stayed three nights on our first visit to the Yorkshire Dales. We opted for a superior room and chose Room 16 - first floor, large room with bath, nice view of the hills. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, so very quiet at night. The hotel reception was very friendly and offered a delicious slice of cake... More

We've just returned from yet again another Amazing Stay at the Tempest Arms, we stayed in room 11 which was stunning and the hot tub was brilliant, thanks Martin. Our evening meal was delicious as always and all the staff were lovely, we've booked again to stay in October and can't wait.

We dropped in here for lunch on our way to Bolton Abbey. It's hidden from the road but we saw a signpost so we turned off. We were very please we stopped because we had a very good lunch in the bar, all of the meals freshly prepared and delicious. Reasonable choice of beer and very good friendly service. We'll... More

We visited as a party of 6 on a Thursday evening. Been to The Tempest many times and have always loved it, however, this visit was marred by the poor service! Our table was booked for 8 o'clock, order taken at 8.30 and food arrived at 9.10 - a bit of a wait which would have been acceptable had someone... More

Booked this hotel on the back of a work colleagues experience, and we were not disappointed! Booked one of the dog friendly rooms for a one night stay, arrived at the tempest arms around 12 o clock but check in wasn't till 3pm, we therefore headed off on a 2 hour walk detailed in a leaflet given by reception.

I'm a frequent business user of this hotel and I return because they get everything right. Rooms, well presented, clean, modern, lovely bathroom and showers. The food is substantial and the chef is clearly able to prepare good old fashion British grub as well as the best of the rest of the world with Indian and Thai food which parallels... More

Spent only one night there but it was exactly what one would expect from an English countryside Inn. Large room with sitting area and bed. Restaurant was fantastic with a large variety of food and large portions and very reasonable prices.

Not difficult to pin this one down .. Firstly I'll have to say it would be nigh on impossible to give this place a bad review, it's obviously well established with a large repeat customer base and supremely busy, we've tried to book a table here on numerous occasions only to find no tables available, that's not a criticism by...

A group of 8 for Wednesday lunch. The choices, from an extensive menu, were made at 12.45 - the food arrived at 1.25! The reason given was that it had to be cooked to order. The manageress would not accept the point that we could have been told this at the start! Good food but not worth such a long... More

Dear Madam It was actually 40 minutes from ordering to receiving your meals, I am so pleased that on the day you said that all was lovely except the wait, but I am sure you cook food from fresh at home and quiet understand that this takes time. We do look forward to welcoming you again to the Tempest and... More
