Upon arrival we got a free upgrade due to someone cancelling earlier in the day. Due to arriving late we decided on room service for dinner and after ordering the full works, it was delivered to our door in 20 minutes... All cooked to absolute perfection. We ordered breakfast to the room for the following morning and left our requests...

This review concerns a couple of visits made to the restaurant here. The general atmosphere is extremely pleasant with, for winter visitors, a huge fire in the middle of the room and terrific scenic views from all tables. The standard of menu choice is good, the staff friendly and helpful and the food itself of a high standard. The hotel...

A little spot of paradise with a beautiful relaxing so. Only downside in the spa is the limited menu which has 'healthy' puddings which don't have a lot of taste and when we visited we were celebrating a birthday - would be nice to have a better choice. Food in the main hotel was absolutely delicious.

We've used this hotel for many small celebrations but knew it'd be great for our Golden Wedding celebration, with more people attending. All of the staff were very helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble for them, right from the initial enquiry to fruition. Various amendments were necessary and all dealt with effectively and in a positive way. All...

Nestled on a 1400 acre estate, this 4 star hotel overlooks its own stunning lake, offers excellent conference and meeting facilities as well as offering a wide range of activities including shooting, Land Rover off-road driving, archery, falconry and fishing. An independent hotel owned by the Bannister family who pride themselves on the friendly and welcoming team across the hotel and the estate. Guests are at the centre of all the major developments decisions made at the hotel. The hotel hosts many weddings and specialises in both leisure breaks as well as corporate packages. A dedicated conference and events manager will work with event organisers to help you combine enjoyable on-site activities such as team building. The hotel works with many of the north of England's leading companies and will prepare a proposal or quotation at any time. If it is a reward or recognition event you are planning then we have plenty of ideas to theme a room or dinner to best set the scene. The Coniston also hosts many other events, large and small from weddings, family celebrations to charity days. The hotel has 71 bedrooms and has the very popular Huntsman's lodge with its panoramic views over the lake and beyond. This restaurant serves food all day from morning coffee, traditional lunch, afternoon tea to dinner in the evening. Free WiFi throughout, makes it an ideal meeting place on the A65 between Skipton and Settle.

The Land Rover Experience offers a truly exhilarating experience; guests can get to grips with one of the latest specification brand new fleet and tackle some of the most challenging terrain.
