“Brilliant base for 3 peaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

you can stay in Horton with the masses, enduing parking difficulties and a wait at the bar or.. just a few minutes drive away - a lovely base, in the good beer guide year after year , excellent value for money, on site parking, friendly efficient staff - breakfast tray for early departure to tackle the peaks. extensive evening menu - all in all a fantastic weekend - thank you

We found the Harts Head ideal for us to celebrate a birthday. There are excellent walks you can do from the hotel, so we arrived at lunchtime, accessed our rooms and got changed for the walk. The Harts Head provides excellent food, and prepared an excellent buffet for 30 at a good price. The service in the Hotel was friendly but efficient, and flexible to suit our needs. A good cooked breakfast set us on our way. would recommend this hotel to everybody.

Let me set the scene... Myself and a friend did the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, in our wisdom (or lack of) we decided to camp the night before and the night after to avoid a 2 1/2 hour journey either side. The first night was freezing, neither of us slept and this made the challenge even tougher! Throughout the challenge the prospet of returning to our very cold tent and decidely unfriendly shower at the site filled us with fear, so our friends (who were staying at this B&B) offered their shower up for us to use.

After a 13.5 hour treck we packed up our shower things and headed to this B&B. iIt was easy to find and we were greeted by some very friendly locals at the bar who asked us about our adventures. Before we could help ourselves we had asked the barman (Richard) if there were any free rroms. He looked at us and with regret in his voice he said he only had one single room left. I immedatley suggsted I would sleep on the floor and my friend could have the bed, he then picked up the phone, and called the Manager (Barbara) to see if she had any other free rooms, she didnt so he phoned the Guesthouse down the road. They had a double but it didnt come with a shower. Richard very kindly offered us the single room with a mattress on the floor. We jumped at the offer!

Richard told us to go and get showered and he would sort the mattress out after. At this point he handed us keys for 2 rooms. Confused we followed him to the first room (this was to be mine). It was warm clean single room with everything but the bed. He then took my friend off to another room a fully complete single room.

We both showered and then went downstairs. Expecting to have to hunt down a local takeaway as food had finished, we were amazed to be offered the option of pizza or pie for tea.

As we were eating our deliious pizzas another barman (Joe) laid out the mattress on my bedroom floor, made up the bed and, unbeknown to me, placed a chocolate on the pillow. As he returned downstairs to the bar he asked with some concern if I would be ok with just a mattress or did I want a bed frame too. I reassured him I would be fine.

We were amazed at how caring and considerate both Richard and Joe were and after the tough day we'd had, they were like angels!

I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough for their levels of customer service. It isn't a 5* hotel but you can't put a price on service! Thank you so much to everyone at the Harts Head... Our Saviours!!

Room Tip: The single was small but adequate for one. To access the annexe you have to go outside so bear that...

This hotel is very easy to find and only 5miles from Horton-in-ribblesdale it's very clean rooms nice and very presentable bathrooms excellent with a lovely hot shower and very good radiators the room heated up very quickly (all extremely inportant after a long hike) the staff were amazing the landlady very welcoming and chirpy and made us a breakfast tray for morning as we were leaving early to do the 3 peaks made a lovely mix tray with pleanty to choose from! the evening bar staff were outstanding we got back late missed dinner by an hour and they roared up the ovens and made us food despite being 10pm they even made 2 rooms up very last Minuit for friends all to a high standard smiles and nothing was too much this was all at around 9.30pm. I can't praise the staff and the place enough! We've told all our friends and will be going back soon. thanks to all the staff for a wonderful and very memorable weekend!!!!!!

We cannot thank Barbara and her staff enough for a lovely 2 night stay. With anxiety sought accommodation in the area in anticipation completing 3peak challenge. Following previous recommendations on trip advisor attempted to book through late rooms with no success,phoned direct and booked a twin room with no problems.On arrival twin room not available and without any hesitation was upgraded to 2 double rooms in the lovely annex- my room( 8) esp nice but my friend no less impressed. Fabulous breakfast presented on a tray the evening before ,as needed to leave at 6am for the challenge ,was an excellent idea. Returned later than anticipated that evening,realizing would miss or would need to rush our evening meal asked if possible for us to take to our rooms. Landlady did no more than bring to us ,after our welcome baths , delicious,very well priced food on a beautifully presented tray. The Inn is not modern but adds to its charm and is appropriate to the area.We couldn't fault any aspect and look forward to returning in the near future.

Exceptionally friendly welcome, food first class and beers beyond reproach. Open fire, warm atmosphere and great company!

Tried all the cask ales on tap and couldn't fault any of them! Staff were very helpful and for a lone traveller to have conversation around the bar in the evening was most welcome!

I would definitely stay here again if in the area!
