We have just returned from a lovely two night break at the Izaak Walton.
Firstly, the location is stunning. The hotel is set in the middle of nowhere surrounded by fields of cows and sheep, within walking distance of Dovedale stepping stones and Thorpe Cloud. We were welcomed by a friendly and helpful receptionist who also showed us to our room.
The room (no 26) was very spacious with beautiful views and a huge and very comfortable bed. The room decoration is a bit dated but very clean.
We booked a table in the bar for dinner and enjoyed a tasty meal both nights with excellent service. It was lovely to be able to eat in the hotel after a full day exploring.
Breakfast was included in the room rate and was very good and served in the restaurant with a view of Thorpe Cloud.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It’s not a luxury hotel and the decor is a little bit dated but the friendly and helpful service, comfort and fantastic location makes it very good value for money and we would definitely stay again. More
