We stayed here for the August weekend. We stayed here because it was near to the show ground as we were attending the wensleydale show. After a terrible mix up with another hotel in middleham we ( apparently we had not booked there despite booking a month in advance via laterooms.com,and receiving an email to verify this!!) Were offered here.
First impressions were pretty good,nice appearance outside,prime spot and friendly village. Our room was adequate but could of done with a little TLC on the cleaning of it. The staff were alright apart from the small blonde behind the bar,( I'm sure I've seen her mentioned before regarding this hotel!) She really doesn't look interested,and really does need to update her people skills. Everything seemed such a chore! =( The owner and his daughter and son were friendly and not to imposing. The food was nice and I really enjoyed the breakfasts,they were served promptly,but could have been a touch warmer! ( not a complaint just a tip!) I did however feel dismayed that upon asking for a table for evening meal,people walking in off the street were offered a table while we were made to wait despite asking before hand! I did remind the owner who said yes the next ones yours,but it wasn't it was probably the fourth after the next! I had my husband and two children with me and paid to stay b and b for two nights! Was nice nice to know paying GUESTS were not given preference over total strangers!! =/ (not!) Also didn't like the fact that a poodle was sat opposite me eating my meal with me! Despite a sign stating dogs not allowed!! Was beginning to feel if your face fitted you got better thought of! Overall not a bad establishment but would like to think if my points were taken up on it would be better. Nevertheless had a lovely time in the village and surrounding area which is beautiful. Definitely returning next year but going to choose my accommodation more carefully and book earlier to avoid disappointment!!
