“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

Recently stayed for 5 nights on a B & B basis. From the time of booking right through to checkout, all the staff were helpful, pleasant and informative.
We stayed in a classic double room overlooking the courtyard. The room was clean and had everything we needed. We were informed that if anything else should be required then all we had to do was ask.
Can't comment on the evening meals as we only had breakfast. This was excellent. The service was good, the cooked breakfast was hot, well presented with good ingredients. The buffet had a good selection.
The hotel is well situated with a short attractive walk via a canal toe path into central Skipton. Would definitely stay again. All staff brilliant but special thanks to Janice who could not have been more helpful.

We had a fantastic night on Saturday. 28 people for a Christmas do. The welcome was lovely, atmosphere nice in bar, food good, party games were great fun and the disco was great. Pitched perfectly to our group and very well organised. Many thanks!

Herriot's is lovely from the outside, and the reception area was very warm and welcoming on arrival.
The girl that was on reception was pleasant enough, and first impressions were good.
However, our bedroom carpet was FILTHY, the walls were covered in marks but worst of all, the mattress was horrendous!!!!
I have never been so uncomfortable, and hardly had a wink of sleep. At 6 months pregnant it was far from ideal as I ended up sleeping on the dirty floor.
On top of this, there was a constant buzzing noise from the shower that could be heard even with the bathroom door shut.
My partner also did not sleep due to the bed and it was an exhausted and quite frankly grumpy couple that checked out this morning.
For £79 a night (room only) the standard of our room was just not good enough.

Met up with some college friends and had a fantastic stay at Herriots. We were treated extremely well throughout our stay. Efficient, helpful, reception staff, and speedy check-in.

Comfortable room with great facilities and spaceous bathroom (though I missed my power shower). Lovely good sized towels which are often missing in many quality hotels. Slept really well with cozy duvets.

Bar staff were friendly, as were the restaurant team. Excellent dinner with a great variety of menu choices. Breakfast team very attentive also. Service first class with lovely buffet breakfast, and cooked options.

All in all a faultless standard of service, attention to detail, and memorable stay.

We will be back!

Yet another fabulous weekend at The Herriots, Skipton. We could not fault anything which is why we come back!
The service is attentive, the rooms are superb and the atmosphere exactly as you would want for a delightful weekend away.

I can't wait until my birthday when we are already booked in.

Room Tip: Go for the second floor canal side rooms -awesome!

Just got back from a stay at Herriots. Stayed with 2 girlfriends for a college reunion and it was fabulous. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. Added bonuses of a hairdryer and iron and ironing board. The staff could not have been more helpful. We had dinner in the restaurant which was beautiful, I had the chicken liver parfait to start which was rich and creamy, followed by the slow roasted lamb which the chef happily tweaked for me as I am not a puy lentil fan. Breakfast was equally good, I had the Eggs Benedict, gorgeous!!! Staff in the restaurant were attentative without being obtrusive. I can definitely recommend this privately owned hotel for a relaxing and perfect stay.
