We had a great night stay at the Tempest. The staff were welcoming and the room was very comfortable and nicely appointed. Dinner in the pub was also very enjoyable and we also had a excellent breakfast - try and get a room with a hot tub if you can, but they are in high demand!

Food is wholesome and excellent quality. I know they have rooms but have not stayed but guess it would be good base just outside of skipton for a... More
