We stayed at the White Bear, for the second time, while visiting the Black Sheep Brewery (for a Bistro night that ended up being cancelled). We received a warm welcome and were shown promptly to our lovely room. It was well decorated, clean and comfortable (although the mattress was a little too firm for our liking). The bathroom was spotless and very elegantly decorated, and contained good quality fittings (great shower!).
This hotel has the best combination of a lovely pub with open fires and (of course) great beer, with modern hotel facilities.
We were very happy with the breakfast, which included home baked banana bread which was delicious. After commenting on how nice it was, I was told I could take some for later, and did not hesitate to do so! Good quality food, lovely surroundings, and again very friendly and helpful staff.
Overall, a great place to stay for exploring the Yorkshire Dales.
