I booked the hotel for my husband’s 40th birthday. We stayed in the Lismore suite, which was beautiful with views across the grounds. Homemade shortbread and Parkin were left in the room, and there is a nespresso machine and kettle. The shower was enormous with good pressure,

Beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting, great staff and fabulous food, the best bed I have ever slept in apart from a Sofitel! Only down side is having to cross a quite busy road to get to the spa which if honest could do with a spruce up as starting to look a little tired in

Stayed one night here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Superb service. When we arrived someone came out to greet us and took our bags to our room. We had a standard room which was lovely but nothing special. The hospitality tray was very good with sweets, Yorkshire crisps, Parkin,

My wife and I have been meaning to stay at the Devonshire Arms for years and finally got around to it about a month ago. Pretty much everything about it was wonderful from the charming Yorkshire welcome (people really are so friendly in Yorkshire - it's really true!), the super

Is the hotel dog friendly ? For an overnight booking ?
Yes, 100%. They love every dog through the door. They even dog sit whilst you have dinner, if your four legged friend doesn’t like being left alone. They have dog beds, towels and even poop bags!

Do the Suites have coffee-making facilities in the suite?
For the prices of a suite I expect everything will be gold plated! But seriously, yes even a basic double i.e.: the cheapest room you can book has a kettle and nespresso machine with coffee pods.

There were certainly people with at least 2 dogs when I stayed there, and it prides itself on being dog-friendly. I'd give the people on Reception a ring about your booking- they are incredibly pleasant and helpful.

"A ground floor suite so would be good for those with limited mobility,this is a pet friendly hotel so if you don’t like dogs don’t go!"
"Ask for afternoon tea in the conservatory for lovey views"
"The Old Wing bedrooms are more expensive but the extra space is worth paying for"
"Make sure you visit Bolton Abbey just up the road, the hotel will give you a pass so you don't have to pay the £10 parking fee."
"Ask for a room with a view over the gardens."
