We spent a night here en route from Horton to Keld and really appreciated the excellent catering services. The cooked breakfasts - essential when facing a long trek - were served promptly and the staff were very accommodating of our various dietary preferences. Excellent porridge too. The packed lunches were the best we encountered on our three day trek in...

3 friends shared a family room. Had plenty of room to get ready for a wedding we were going to. All clean, staff accommodating about our late night. Breakfast brilliant. Only comment is the beds were very hard and springy!

We decided to have a last minute night away in this lovely part of Yorkshire. On a Frosty day the room was lovely & warm, our bed was nice and comfortable and breakfast was really good before our walk up to the waterfall.

Friendly staff, good food and range of local ales. Comfortable rooms with good facilities. A good centre for exploring the North Yorkshire Dales. Good public transport facilities. Several places of interest covering areas of natural beauty but also several areas of industrial historical interest such as old railways and lead mine workings.

I stayed here for one night. Ready to tackle the Yorkshire three peaks. Good basic clean room. Big shower cubicle. A great little bar and excellent restaurant. I could easily stay here for a long weekend. Friendly hard working staff in the bar and restaurant.

Stopped in Hawes during a rail tour for lunch, described by our Tour Manager as a finger buffet. What we got was a feast, Numerous sandwiches, quiches, Curry, rice, casserole and sausage rolls etc. etc. The beer was first class as well. Will definitely visit again when in the area for a longer stay.
