I stayed here for two nights during a walking trip to the Dales. Food and drink were fine - good solid fare.
However my stay was disappointing for two reasons: the room and the car parking. First the room. Decor was OK, but the room wasn't really clean. Far worse though was the fact that there was a hole in the bathroom floor! Really! Apparently a stag party the previous weekend had trashed the room and they hadn't yet fixed the hole. They did so when I asked them to. But hey, this was a week on from when the damage was caused - and did they have to wait until I asked them to fix it?
The car park is horrible - there is a very narrow archway through to a cramped space for about six cars. It took me literally 15 minutes to manoeuvre my way out of this car park after someone else parked in the only turning space. Car parking in Kirkby Lonsdale is dire anyway - the two car parks in the centre of town both limit you to four hours, otherwise I would cheerfully have paid to avoid using the hotel car park. This must be an important consideration given that most visitors to the town must drive there.
Anyway, I don't want it to appear that my stay was dominated by the ropey old car park! I can recommend the food and drink at the Snooty Fox, and the staff are really friendly, but the accommodation was very disappointing. I don't think I would stay there again for that reason.
