The hotel has an excellent website but the reality is slightly differant, and we felt that the hotel lacked the friendliness and warmth we were led to expect.
The location is beautiful in a very small hamlet in Dent.
The hotel has been modernised and lacks any form of warmth in the guest lounge, i.e. there is a small fireslightly to small for purpuse or centre focal point,..and very brightly lit change the bulbs would be a great start
The restaurant has quite tightly packed tables,..but the tables tops are well laid out. . Can be chilly in this room - take a sweater with you!
Good choice on the menu and small but adequate range of wines available at very reasonable cost.
The rooms are fairly small but adequate, and again modern. . Plenty of hot water and perfectly adequate.
The rooms was possibly abit chilly too, although has a decent radiator which is useful to hang towels on to dry.
This is not a pub type bar,..and we did not use this. it trys to be , but needs more country clutter , to carry the image that it is trying to carry
Breakfast quite small in te morrning but has lovely free-range eggs. Generous supply of toast and marmalades.
Small pub about 40 mts (sun Inn) which is very good.
This is a good hotel for walking
About 35 minutes drive to the north is the Tan Hill Arms (well worth a visit) and is the hishest pub in England. Good beers and meals around an open (but small) peaty fire.
In conclusion,....we were disappointed that the owners were seldom to be seen but heard from most locals that if he was about he would be seen sitting at the end of the bar shouting orders to the staff and the hotel lacked any atmosphere. We suspect the owners were hard at work in the kitchen .
Regretfully although the hotel is excellent value.... especially one of the two/three day breaks,....we would not stay again. I think it could be pretty boring for a husband and wife alone. However,..the hotel was busy mainly with older couples,.. so something is right .
