Everyone had a wonderful time celebrating joint birthdays and it was so nice to receive a birthday card, balloon and chocolates in our rooms to help us celebrate, much appreciated. The food was excellent and we enjoyed our stay very much. Hopefully...

It was very nice to chat informally with David, and I again extend my thanks for the cold oyster sent through during our meal as he had clearly realised that I do like them but my partner always insists on hot! We will be...

Lovely location and warm welcome. Room (Shooters) was quirky, very clean and well presented. Wine list was good. Dinner: Starters - Goats cheese starter was lovely, more beetroot would have been great to balance out the amount of cheese. Mussels and clams were delicious, sauce was amazing. There was a bit of grit in the seafood which was unfortunate to...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am happy that you enjoyed the food and service and have passed your review onto the chefs and the restaurant team. I am sorry about the mistake with the chocolate platter and we have now put some new systems in place to ensure this doesn't happen again.

Our stay in the Champagne room was fantastic, great accommodation, the welcome on arrival was excellent and we were well looked after throughout our stay. The food in the restaurant and the choice was superb and we would definitely recommend the Wensleydale Heifer Hotel to anyone visiting Wensleydale in North Yorkshire.

Thank you for submitting a review, we do send out last minute specials occasionally to try and sell our last few rooms, we do offer very good offers all year round and I am sorry if this has made you unhappy as this was never our intention. If you are booking on the last minute special you are very limited...

The service, staff and food were once again first class! Well done to all concerned. In my honest opinion I do feel the rooms are now getting "tired" and are in need of some TLC. We recently stayed in the Shooters room, the shower was very very noisy, but I feel the deal for this room with the evening meal...

It is difficult to know where to begin! From the moment we walked in the door till we checked out, we were met with the most wonderful welcoming, professional and totally appreciated staff.
