Spent a very pleasant weekend at The Dales Country House Hotel. The setting is delightful. The main rooms lovely too. The welcome very warm and efficient. Found the staff friendly and very helpful. We booked the best room available whilst the couple with us a superior room. They expected it to be good and were laying for us as a gift for my partner's birthday. There is a programme of renovation at the hotel ....we had a lovely room whilst the others a terrible room with rusty windows, a tired room and sad bathroom. The hotel apologised but no other room was available. This hotel could be wonderful with a little care as to the finish of the renovation. The shower screen did not fit well and leaked over the pretty lighting fitted into the bath panel...it freaked me out a bit..electricity and water and all that. The hotel promote their restaurant and something special but I am afraid that it let the hotel down for us. The portion sizes were fine for me but tiny for anyone wanting normal sized meals. Starters ok, puds nice too but mains were horrid. On the second night we chose a la carte herb lamb cutlets medium rare, they were raw and the whole course terrible. I wd suggest it s nice place to stay, conveniently located but be prepared to wait a little for bar service tea, coffee etc it isn't fast but not a problem for us as were were not in a hurry. The pleasant staff made up for that. The meals well take a deep breath and do not expect too much is my advice u less you eat out. Breakfast and sandwiches were really good.
