What an absolutely fabulous time my sisters and I had. Warm, welcoming, friendly and efficient. Our bedrooms were very well maintained. The food was very tasty and very well presented. Cannot recommend this wonderful hotel/eatery highly enough. Most certainly will return.

We live only 20 miles away but try to spend as many weekends away as possible here. Great location, accommodation, food and Staff. Our dog knows as soon as we pull up where we are and goes mental... it's home from home for her :)

We booked two nights in the Lister Arms for our first visit and stay in the Yorkshire Dales. We booked the newly opened Lister Barn, separated from the pub by a short walk across a stone bridge over the stream that runs behind the pub. The Lister Barn is appointed superbly. The rooms are generous and modern, the bathrooms are...

Being a fan of the Lister arms pub & restaurant for many years we were excited to stay at the new lister arms barn recently. It's absolutely beautiful! the rooms are oak beamed, beautifully decorated with the usual good quality bed and shower you'd expect. theres endless teas and coffees to get yourself and a great log fire chill out...

Spent all be day and night here. Couldn't fault it at all. Food was wonderful, atmosphere was wonderful - loved the fact we chilled out in the pub after our long walk, sat in a comfy chair and watching the world go by. We took our dog and he loved it too! Staff were excellent. Would definitely return. Thank you.

In the centre of Malham, this hotel has rooms in the main building and an annex. It has a car park, where signs lead you to the back door, by way of steps or a ramp, at that entrance there is a further step, but the front does not. From the bar to the bedrooms within the original building, there...

We spent two nights here over New Year with friends; with 3 dogs between us and we couldn't have had a warmer welcome. The staff went out of their way, despite being run off their feet, to attend to our every need. We never had to wait for a table, and the bars were cosy with log burners and open...

As regular visitors to Malham and indeed The Lister Arms, this was our first Christmas away from home and the family. We took our dog as we were happy that dogs are very welcome in the pub. We were accommodated in Lister Barn, some 40 paces from the pub across the beck. It almost reminded me of a ski chalet...

Thank you for your amazing 5 star review. We are so happy you had a wonderful stay with us, especially at Christmas time. You paint a great picture of our new Lister Barn, we think its a bit Ski Chalet too, although the skiing has been a bit of a non-starter in Malham this year! The team will be so...
