I stayed in this hotel with my mum and little brother one night after my graduation. The views of the Yorkshire moors from our window were stunning. We had a great room, basic, but spacious and very comfortable. We only paid £57 for the night including breakfast in the morning for all 3 of us, which I thought was very reasonable indeed! The food for dinner is amazing and the service is great. Breakfast was your average continental (cereals, toast, croissants, pain au chocolat etc) but perfectly nice (although they didn't have soy milk or any alternative to normal cow's milk when my mum asked, as she is lactose intolerant - however, we weren't expecting them to!). The service was really good and the people there were very friendly. This is a good place to stay if you're looking for a quiet break in the Yorkshire Moors (family/solo/couples). If you're looking for a loud friend's holiday, this isn't really the place - they stop serving drinks in the bar/restaurant at 11pm!
Particularly great for climbers and walkers (my little brother is a keen climber, and the rocks just opposite the hotel have plenty of great routes to climb).
Overall, a lovely experience!
