“Lovely hotel fantastic facilities ! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

Had a look round the other hotels in the area and settled on this one, service was excellent, very good value and full range of facilities unlike some of the other hotels in the area. The hotel room was large and spacious and had a great view! If I'm in Skipton again I'll be back!

Stayed for one night as a couple. Room was spacious however it was on the roadside and extremely noisy. It was like trying to sleep on the hard shoulder of the M6. As the sun also goes down on this side of the hotel the room was boiling, and as their was no air con then only option was to open the windows. Bathroom was ok and toilet roll was good quality. Had a meal in the restaurant which was a bit weird to be honest. Setting was lovely in the conservatory overlooking the canal, however I ordered ham, egg and chips. I wrongly presumed it was a hot meal but the ham was served stone cold. Never really ordered that before so didn't really know what to expect, but just found it odd. Maybe that's the norm for ham, egg and chips eaters. Anyway got plenty of cold ham, a reasonable egg but only about 7 dodgy chips. All in all rather disappointing. Parsnip soup to start was nice though. I feel this hotel has massive potential but desperately needs major investment. Not sure who chose the decor in the corridors or indeed the paint for the yellow doors but obviously they have a good sense of humour.

We have just returned from an overnight stay and had a very nice stay at this hotel.

Looking at some of the previous comments about the "dated decor", I have to say I don't know which part of the hotel this refers to. The areas we visited, reception (obviously), bar, restaurant and general public areas were all perfectly fine.

The pool, sauna, steam room and changing areas were clean and certainly adequate for purpose. I have to say though that the sign in the pool saying "no more than 30 persons" was probably a bit optimistic. The gym was very well equipped although we did not actually use it.

Our room was a family room (105) on the ground floor on the main road side. The traffic noise was not a problem and certainly did not disturb us. It was very spacious with a double bed and a proper single rather than a camp bed/sofa bed. The bedroom and bathroom were immaculately clean so well done to the cleaning staff.

The wi-fi was a bit hit and miss in the room but it was free and did the job, just about.

We ate in the hotel restaurant and sat in the conservatory part overlooking the canal which was quite picturesque. The staff were friendly and efficient, the food was reasonably priced and very tasty so a very enjoyable meal all round.

We found the hotel to be a bit far to walk to the town centre so made use of Tesco car park and walked the short distance from there. 3 hours free parking, every little helps!

If I were ever to go back to Skipton I would have no hesitation about staying there again. We did get the room though a deal so I do not actually know what the full price would have been.

Had a very pleasant stay, only booked the night before and got a Sunday night deal. We had interconnecting rooms a double and twin(for 2 boys) and there was loads of space. Food was very good, we had to eat in the bar because of a big party and couldn't get in the restaurant until late. The decor may be a little dated but it was very clean and we enjoyed the pool area. For a quick night away it was good value and great for visiting The Dales.

Stayed here for 2 nights, booking a deal via Great Little Breaks.
The deal included an upgrade to a canal view room which was a reasonable size, clean and had a lovely view of both the canal and countryside, shame about the view of the dirty laundry skips.

It's a pleasant walk along the canal to Skipton and a quick easy drive to the dales.

The included dinners were reasonable, but the typical buffet breakfast could have been great but was mostly cold and not very fresh on both days.

To summarise, this hotel is very good if you get a good deal but not if you pay full price for it.

Had to stay in this hotel because all our regular haunts were fully booked. Won't be staying there again. Very dated decor, like a 90's time warp. My beer was off, so I decided to take it back and demand the other real ale on offer. However as I approached the bar, another customer was returning the other ale for the same reason! The food was decidedly average - having seen what was served to a colleague, we went up to the curry house in Skipton. It was a very hot summer's evening and my room was in the roof space. Had to keep the velux window open to cool off, which meant all the noise from the main road outside and the railway across the valley. Then the rain poured in during a shower in the night - the sign next to the water stains by the window stated not to leave it open! And to cap it all, I have never felt so young (at 51) as apart from our team, we at least 20 years younger than the remainder of the guests. Strange, strange place.

Room Tip: Not on the top floor and not around the front of the hotel by the main road. Back of the hotel by th...

This is not really the type of hotel I would usually stay, to big, to 'holiday, premier inn etc' but it is very nice and well situated. Skipton town is 15 min stroll down the canal. The rooms are large, clean and well presented but sadly no wifi signal on the 4th floor. Breakfast is excellent and the food in the restaurant is very good and excellent value. The service was a little hit and miss, our bottle of wine was plonked on the table unopened. Fortunately it was a screw top. All in all very good and I will be staying again. But please stop playing the dreadful soporific music, we had it in the corridor, the lift, at breakfast and at dinner. It's inescapable and invasive. It would have been nice to sit quietly at breakfast and watch the world go by.
