We booked in very late, which was allowed( others in the village didn't offer this).They placed the continental breakfast out for us as we left before 7 a.m. In our stay we managed to try the beer(real ale). The room was ok. Bit expensive for what it is.

The food here was atrocious, fair enough it was busy but it took 1 hour and 30 minutes for a portion of chips to arrive, ok it was cheap but none of my party enjoyed their meal. The beer was fine and the staff were ok. I suppose you are in a closed market if doing the Three Peaks but... More

I stayed in the B&B for the Three Peaks walk. Sullen unwelcoming staff, expensive for what it was. A really grotty and grubby twin room, with polyester sheets covering an unwashed duvet cover. I was bitten alive by bed bugs and kept awake by the really noisy bar. Considering these people have a captive market in fell walkers, you would... More

I stayed at the 3 Peaks Bunkhouse (round the back) for 3 nights before treating myself to a more comfortable nights sleep on my last night in Horton staying in one of their hotel rooms. The staff were friendly, receptive and attentive to all my needs. My room was spotless, and my shower was great (especially considering the one I'd... More

I tried for a week in May to book three nights accommodation for this July. Despite frequent phoning, there was no answer. Same thing with emails. So I booked with the Crown up the road instead. Walked passed The Golden Lion several times last week, but there was no sign of life. Tried to drop in for a lunchtime pint... More

I am surprised by some of the negative reviews of the bunkhouse, but it appears some reviewers are mixing with Golden Lions Pub dining with the lodgings. I stayed in the bunkhouse for 2 nights. The sleeping area and bathroom (showers in particular) were exceptionally clean. I've stayed in many hostels before and was pleasantly surprised. The first night I... More

We went for food the evening before doing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks and stayed at the campsite next door. You can walk to the foot of Pen-y-ghent so of course the location is fantastic. Positives - dog friendly, fast efficient service on a busy night and carvery style buffet means no waiting around. Negatives - the food was really pretty... More

This is not a gastro pub, nor does it pretend to be. Serving great local real ales and food aimed at value for money, this is perfect for the walkers. We ate here after completing the Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge and our whole party was more than happy with the food, regardless of other reviews on here. Great service from... More
