If you on your way to the Yorkshire Dales, take a break before and stay here to enjoy the walks or rides along the canal. There were lovely restaurants and pubs to enjoy and the town has some lovely older buildings that or so typical of the area.
Get in earl to book a room along the canal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the canal, they are very popular so book early.

Took my 81yr old mum for a birthday treat.

Got a package with 2 nights b&b 2course dinner with a bottle of wine & a canal trip at a fantastic price!

Service was impeccable throughout however Nina was particularly fantastic! Nina was excellent from the 1st phone call & throughout our stay. Mum is disabled and they catered for her brilliantly with nothing being too much trouble. All the staff made this a wonderful stay.

Location is right onto the canal and within a nice walking (or mobility scooter) travelling distance to Skipton high street.

Will be back for the Christmas shopping break!

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms that look onto canal with balcony effect really lovely

Excellant hotel, lovely locaction beside the canal, friendly staff and great home cooked food. Ideal for walking in and around Skipton or as a base for exploring the Dales. Would we go back, to right we would.

My husband and myself stayed at Herriots from the 22nd to 24th May 2013. We travelled by train and arrived mid morning but they were more than happy for us to leave our luggage in reception so we could enjoy some time in the town before checking in later that afternoon. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom facilities were very good although perhaps a handrail could be fitted to the wall along the side of the bath, for safety when using the shower. We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel restaurant, the food was extremely good and very well presented and the staff were friendly and courteous at all times. We would particularly like to thank Janice on reception who arranged our inclusive offers and also for allowing us to leave our luggage in reception yet again, as our train did not leave until mid afternoon, it gave us the opportunity of making the most of our last day. We will certainly be returning to Herriots.

Really lovely hotel, great location, the staff are very friendly, not one grump in site. The room was large very clean, breakfast full "Yorkshire" of course kept me going thru to dinner. I will be going back again.

We had a 2 night stay recently - warm welcome on arrival. Good room, overlooking the courtyard, was spacious and clean. Excellent sized shower. Lie-ins prevented us from making breakfast but ate in the restaurant Monday evening, a birthday meal - food was excellent, first class. On future days out to Skipton we will eat here on our way home.

The hotel was clean comfortable and breakfast was excellent, so were the staff, our room looked out over the canal and was a short walk to town. I would certainly recommend this hotel. We went in March for one night and the weather was great, Morrisons is across the road and so is the railway station.
