I was looking for somewhere to stay overnight whilst travelling with two largish dogs from the ferry in Scotland to the Kennel Club International Agility Festival at Rockingham Castle in Leicestershire. I have travelled this road many times and had always liked the look of Gargrave with its river and canal so knowing that I had business in Otley the... More

One of the things that really struck me during our stay was how friendly the staff were! Room was comfortable, plenty of tea and coffee, and a bonus for us - dog friendly! Hotel very well located if you enjoy walking. Enjoyed our stay, especially our delicious evening meal.

After a mix up with the rooms was sorted out - very pleasantly - we checked into rooms 2 (Mother-in-law, twin room) and 3 (wife, me and dog, double room), side by side on the ground floor. The good things: very clean... More

Only wanted meal and drinks. First try , four bar staff ignored me to talk about tyre punctures.The second round , bar staff declined to take my order,even after being asked by fellow staff. We decided to eat elsewhere. They did send out a youngster as we were leaving, but no apology.

Very good accommodation, well equipped comfortable room with everything you need for your stay. The food at both the evening meal and breakfast was delicious and there was a fine selection of real ales. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

I was in need of an overnight stay somewhere in the Skipton area. My 'go to' choice was booked so I sought an alternative. I consulted the Good Beer Guide as wherever I stayed had to fulfil two very importantant criteria; be within walking distance of a railway station and serve good Real Ale. That's how I found the Mason's... More
