After a long journey from the Midlands, we reached this picturesque building and surroundings overlooking Wensleydale. Due to ongoing refurbishments, our room was upgraded upon arrival. This commanded a vista of Wether Fell, Cam Fell, Dodds Fell and Great Shunner Fell. A bottle of Prosecco was awaiting our arrival. We found the bar well equipped with an adjacent dining area...

last Saturday was cold and dreary - we arrived for lunch at about 1.30pm (watch out - the Brasserie service stops at 2pm) and settled for a window table. We had our pick of all the tables...it was not busy. Apparently, lousy weather keeps people away which was all the better from my point of view: excellence in service, speed...

Party of four called in for lunch - very helpful and friendly staff. Lovely plates of food - excellent ribeye steak, generous fish dishes, lovely herby chicken, plus ace chips, etc.(£80 inc. tip) & good value. There must be a gifted chef in the kitchen. Greeted with a Jug of water whilst picking from the menu, a thoughtful touch. Amazing...

We stayed three nights in late Jan and early Feb 2017 The hotel has heaps of character, friendly staff, fabulous food for us, a four poster.

The check-out guest survey is provided as an opportunity to offer feedback (discreetly, as prefered by most guests) about their experience at Simonstone Hall and as a way of identifying areas for continuing improvement and tracking any aspects that we may wish to follow up on after guest departure - it's unfortunate that you didn't feel that direct feedback would...

Hi there - very many thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, that day, we were unable to provide lunch due to Electricity Board maintenance in the area - unavoidable - however, as your booking was for 'morning coffee' which we were still able to provide, and not a lunch booking, we did not envisage that this would be a problem having...
