The cooked breakfast was really good with well cooked food and plenty of choice. Stayed here years ago on a trip to Scotland and the improvements are very good. Would definitely stay here... More

We arrived on a cold November day and were shown to our room. It was large but wasn't as clean as in the past and signs of lowering standards were evident- no tissues, really horrid... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times. It is easily reached straight off from the A1 going north and has plenty of parking and ideal when visiting the wonderful Yorkshire Dales.
