“My sons wedding "Bonfire Night 2011"!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

If anyone is planning a wedding, this is the perfect venue; service, food, rooms, location! It is absolutely superb! From start to finish all our family and guests couldn't have one negative comment.

Room Tip: We had room 205, beautiful decor, crisp bedding, much larger than average and a massive bed!

My young family and I stayed for two nights visiting family who had recently moved to the area.
We received a very warm welcome and to be honest the staff are probably the friendliest bunch I have met. They all had permanent smiles on their faces and genuinely appeared to enjoy working there.
The family room was huge and spotlessly clean. Bathroom was small but again spotless. Food in the restaurant was also well presented, thoroughly tasty and very good value for money. A hearty cooked breakfast was a great start to the day. The bedroom was well furnished and well laid out. The best thing however was how engaging the staff were with the children. I've been to several hotels who openly advertise that they are child friendly and then treat your kids like aliens. Full marks to all, we will return !

Room Tip: Check if there are any events before you book. There was live music the evening we arrived that went...

With friends, we stayed for 3 nights on the 3 night for 2 special offer. Excellent value in a clean, tasteful hotel/inn. Our bedroom was spotlessley clean, spacious, well furnished - the bathroom was brand new and much larger than the average. Staff were friendly and helpful and the location ideal. Breakfast and evening meals were delicious, well presented and plentiful. The main road was not the slightest problem. We loved this place and will be back.

We stayed just one night at The Downe Arms to meet up with friends from Canada. We felt very welcome on arrival and the room was superb. A King size bed, double wardrobe, dressing table, table and chairs, hairdryer etc, lots of space, Kettle etc; and lots of tea/coffee but only one pack of biscuits, which we ate on arrival after a long journey!
The bathroom had a separate corner shower cubicle and a roll top bath, plenty of towels and toiletries, but no tumblers!
We had a delicious early dinner that night, the food and service were excellent, stayed in the dining room till late, with no pressure to leave. Slept well, despite being on the main road, the traffic didn't keep us awake.
Breakfast was equally as delicious, maybe could have done with some fresh fruit though! However, it was good to be offered a fat free, poached eggs with mushrooms and grilled tomatoes.
We'll certainly visit again, it's a lovely area to explore and a homely hotel to return to.

We didn't stay here but held our Evening Wedding Reception here in May. From the moment we enquired about the wedding we had fantastic personal service and had a wonderful party! The hotel was very flexible with what we wanted and let us choose our own finger buffet which was delicious - we had comments from our guests about how lovely the food was! I would highly recommend Downe Arms for a Wedding Reception - great value for money and a beautiful location!

The hotel was a great place to stay, The staff were friendly and polite and the place was clean and tidy. The food was excellent and tasty. All the staff were very helpful and made our stay more comfortable and enjoyable. The kids loved the hotel as well as there was a wide kids variety menu. The family cant wait to come back to the hotel and stay again for there holidays. Hotel situated close to most of the attractions in Yorkshire. There is lovely scenery around the hotel as well.
