We had a great stay. Staff were fantastic throughout. Rooms stunning and 100% dog friendly. We will be back very soon 🐶 you can get to everything from this location. The breakfast is to die for. Manager on hand 24/7. Lots of real ale in local pubs, again all dog friendly, so you don't have to leave your best pal...

Spent a couple of nights in Skipton, this hotel is in a great spot for accessing all amenities. Staff very friendly and the room was clean and tidy. Nice choice of breakfast which was cooked to order and very tasty. Would definitely recommend for a short break and a fantastic base to tour the dales.

Easy to find brilliant location right in the centre. You are very close to a night club and you can hear the music till quite late but it didn't bother us at all, We paid around £14 extra for an upgrade and it was really worth it, our friends stayed in a standard room this was also lovely. Beds were...
