“Geat Winter Getaway”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

I stayed art the Stone House, during a recent Hiking vacation, the location is perfect for a casual country stroll to the local Green Dragon Inn and the Hardaw Force Waterfall ( think Kevin Costner Robin Hood Price of Thieves). For the more committed Hikers there are numerous day hike choices, from strenuous hills to the less so valley trails. Bolton Castle is close by, famous for a former "resident" Mary Queen of Scots, it is somewhat damaged but open to the public, and from the high castle walls are superb views of the Wensleydale, which explains why such a commanding location was chosen. During my stay the weather was shall we say a little cold, however after a day hiking, the several log fires back at the hotel were something to look forward to, just relax in one of the leather chairs, to read or snooze as the mood takes you. The staff are terrific,helpful and friendly in the most traditional Yorkshire way. Not a budget hotel, but excellent value for money, food in the restaurant is of a very high standard, it is changed daily and offers wide choice of very well prepared dishes. This is truly a get away from it all relaxing hotel, where the staff operate on the premise that nothing is too much trouble to ensure you the perfect stay.

Just spent a wonderful weekend up in the Dales topped off by a stay in a lovely hotel. The Stone House Hotel is just outside Hawes with wonderful views over the valley. The staff at the hotel are refreshingly friendly and have time for all the customers to make sure their stay is the best it can be. Excellent food finished with the best cheese board, portions that would please all and a relaxing atmosphere completes the package. Made our anniversary special and will be back.

Room Tip: We had the 4 poster and was lovely spacious room with very comfy bed.

This is a bespoke hotel 1.2 miles from the center of the village of Hawes. The views of the Dales are exceptional, as is the service and food. The hotel itself is traditional for the area and we would certainly stay here again. Another plus point is that it is pretty cental for sightseeing attractions including the 'must visit' Wensleydale Cheese Factoy.

Room Tip: We've had a room in the main hotel & the annex. Both are comfortable.

This is our second visit to Stone House, having first discovered this place 3 years ago.
We stayed in a suite with a separate entrance from the main hotel and the room is beautifully appointed with plenty of space to relax. The hotel is in the process of altering this room with the addition of a new bathroom, and when we arrived we were told that they would reduce the room rate to compensate for this work even though there was no inconvenience caused.
I love this Hotel, there is a great relaxed atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble for the staff.
Décor in the reception rooms is a throw back to a 1930's Miss Marple story, with comfy chairs and sofas, open fires and scores of pictures, books and ornaments. In particular look out for the caricature sketches, in the bar area, of past guests of the Hotel.
Hopefully the character of this Hotel will NOT change. They have got everything right.

We have just returned from a few nights break at the Stonehouse; this must be our sixth or seventh time there so I think you can tell that we like it. Many of the other guests have been there before too; on this visit we met a gentleman who has been going there for twenty years. A lot of the staff at the Stonehouse have been there for years as well. This is a good sign, as establishments that have a high turnover of staff tend not to be happy places. The Stonehouse is well situated on the side of the dale, overlooking the market town of Hawes and with lovely views up and down Wensleydale. Even the air seems better there!
The food is excellent, the breakfast being particularly good. The rooms have been recently refurbished and are clean and comfortable. All in all it is a warm, welcoming hotel in a beautiful part of the world that offers excellent value for money and before too long, I have no doubt that we will be returning again.

I have just hosted a party of 49 people at the Stone House Hotel, Hawes, arriving Friday and departing yesterday(sunday). We have been doing similar trips for 10 years and this hotel has surpassed our expectations.From the family management team in the planning stage through to all the staff over the weekend we received the very best in customer service.The food was fantastic,the service impecable and you were never far from a smile whoever you spoke to.Freshly cooked breakfast was a delight and served efficiently despite us all seeming to arrive in the same 30 minute slot. A gem in the Dales!!!
