We went on a break and could not fault it/ food superb staff very friendly Mr pantomime man really great. we are back in March cant wait. Room was fab bed a little hard for me but cant complain. what a place.
We stayed here for a couple of nights and had been looking forward to getting away and relaxing. The place didn’t disappoint, a lovely welcome and the hotel is small and intimate, a quiet place to be. Our rooms were both lovely, we stayed in the Oxenber which was nicely appointed and had a fabulous bathroom. The only downside is on the second night, we could hear people walking around the room above and if did wake me up. The suite which our family stayed in was also very nice but I didn’t think any better than, maybe not worth any extra than our room. We had the Brasserie menu on the first night which was fine but we weren’t blown away. However, on the second night we had the tasting menu and we all thoroughly enjoyed it, some fantastic flavours. If we were to return, we’d like to see the menu change so we can try the tasting menu again. There’s a good choice of drinks and wines, it’s great that you can have champagne by the glass! We all enjoyed the breakfasts and the service was generally pretty good, in particular the reception staff were ultra friendly and made a fuss of our dog. My only little niggles, firstly we came away for two birthdays which the hotel was made aware of and there was no mention of these, and I did spend quite a lot of money on the two nights. The second was that when checking out, it was a hefty amount and the card machine asks if you want to leave a tip, which I find embarrassing and would rather not be asked to do. All in all, I’d recommend this lovely hotel if you’re looking for a relaxing and quiet place to stay. The village is quaint and has dog walks straight from the hotel.…
Another wonderful and relaxing stay at The Traddock. Always nice to see familiar faces - the staff are truly fantastic and looked after us from the moment we arrived. Good food, good company and a lovely place to stay. Paul and the team made New Years Eve special.
There are many corporate giants that could learn from this well run idyllic hotel . This is the perfect get away from it all location, helpful friendly staff and the most comfortable bed I have slept in for ages. The bed was so comfortable and the room so cosy I slept through breakfast Highly recommend
What a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were superb and I loved the open log fires and the decor. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The views and scenery were stunning. The afternoon tea was delicious and possibly the best we have ever had. The evening dinner menu is limited and for adventurous guests with small appetites. The only accompaniment was boiled potatoes with every meal! When my main course was not to my liking, the staff were very helpful and quickly changed it for something else, so the service was very good. There is a tasting menu but the chef does not do substitutions, if there is a course that is not to someones taste. A previous reviewer suggested a couple of plainer options on the menu and that sounds like a good idea. After a couple of nights, we had to eat elsewhere to get some variety. The breakfasts were more generous and there was plenty of choice, so they were very good. The dinners would not put me off and I would stay there again. Its a fabulous place.…
The Traddock delivers on every front. It is a charming old place with wonderfully polite and friendly staff. The house is warm, with open log fires, plentiful hot water and lovely furnishings. All in a beautiful, quiet rural setting on the edge of the pretty village. The food is first class: imaginative, beautifully presented and superbly cooked. My only suggestion, and it’s a minor one, would be the addition of one or two plainer dishes for those with smaller appetites. The Traddock is excellent value for money I shall certainly be returning soon for a longer stay. Thank you.
Just had a lovely few days at the Traddock. Unfortunately had to cut our visit short but look forward to going back. Had a fabulous suite and really enjoyed the delightful food Very small menu if you are staying more than two or three nights but otherwise we would recommend a visit to take advantage of the beautiful scenery and walking straight from the hotel. Breakfast was also memorable and certainly caters for those with a big appetite. Staff were very helpful and friendly A great find .
We stayed two nights here and the location is fabulous. What was weird and strange is that we were asked to change our room on the first with no clear explanation as to why apart from’the system’ had the blame for this. Our room on the first night it was beautiful and spacious. We also had dinner at the restaurant which was delicious. Staff were attentive and friendly. Breakfast the following morning was beautiful including the vegetarian option. From there it just went downhill; our room on the second was a somewhat ensuite: the basin was next to the bed. Then a tight squeeze shower and toilet on the other end. A very strange setting indeed. The following morning the breakfast was rushed and not as well presented as the previous day. For a vegetarian option I was offered an overcooked meat substitute which was not pleasant.…
The room, food and service was impeccable. Don’t hesitate to stay here! On top of that, it’s very much a dog friendly hotel. The staff are hospitable and welcoming. The menus are 5* and beautifully cooked and presented - waiting staff attentive with being obtrusive. This is the second time staying here since 2014 and I was not disappointed!
Outstanding hotel in glorious countryside! The welcome from the staff was as warm as the roaring fire and we relaxed quickly into a wonderful weekend in the Dales. The food and the rooms were high quality and we will certainly be back. Be great if the hotel has electric car chargers by then to make our stay even easier and more comfortable.
