“poor quality room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2011

stayed here for one night, a very sleepless night! was kept awake by someone in next or nearby room snoring!!, obviously very thin walls, lots of noise from bar too! the room was spacious but very tatty and the furniture extremely dated, curtains hanging off rails and wallpaper peeling off in various places, the carpet was dirty with large stains. The staff were very friendly and food ok, but definately overpriced for the quality of the room.

I stayed here for two nights during a walking trip to the Dales. Food and drink were fine - good solid fare.

However my stay was disappointing for two reasons: the room and the car parking. First the room. Decor was OK, but the room wasn't really clean. Far worse though was the fact that there was a hole in the bathroom floor! Really! Apparently a stag party the previous weekend had trashed the room and they hadn't yet fixed the hole. They did so when I asked them to. But hey, this was a week on from when the damage was caused - and did they have to wait until I asked them to fix it?

The car park is horrible - there is a very narrow archway through to a cramped space for about six cars. It took me literally 15 minutes to manoeuvre my way out of this car park after someone else parked in the only turning space. Car parking in Kirkby Lonsdale is dire anyway - the two car parks in the centre of town both limit you to four hours, otherwise I would cheerfully have paid to avoid using the hotel car park. This must be an important consideration given that most visitors to the town must drive there.

Anyway, I don't want it to appear that my stay was dominated by the ropey old car park! I can recommend the food and drink at the Snooty Fox, and the staff are really friendly, but the accommodation was very disappointing. I don't think I would stay there again for that reason.

Stayed for one night. This was enough! Old, tatty, creaky rooms. Needs massavie update to bathroomd and all funiture. The car park and enerance tatty.

On the plus side the young staff were very good, breakfast was good. Not enough to make me return.
Will never trust star rating again. This is a one star or none!!!!

The food was not all fresh as advertised. Children ate burger and gammon with chips which they said was ok but nothing special.

The 2 adult meals were from the freezer and the meat was tough and stringy. I left mine. Even the vegatables weren't fresh and had been reheated.

The bar was good but for eating either stick with the grills or go somewhere else

room very small , hot and shabby, not worth £70 a night!! Can't believe it is rated as a four star inn by AA!! Pub music below room loud and went on until 1 am , not something I expected in a historic market town such as Kirkby Lonsdale. Breakfast was the only saving grace.

We found our self stranded in Kirkby Lonsdale on route for the North East due to December snow fall. We decided it too dangerous to carry on further so looked for two rooms for ourselves and our teenage girls.

The Snootly Fox had rooms available and allowed us immediate acces although only lunch time as we were a little cold and wet. They did us a good deal on price the rooms were adequate and clean certainly nothing to complain about .
We ate in the pub in the evening the food was very nice enjoyed by all and honestly priced.
Breakfast was good too.
There was a lovely log fire in the bar and the staff were really friendly.

Needs updating, huge stain on carpet. standard double ( not small, avoided that due to review on here) bed queensize and bedding clean but dated. At £80 per night it was shabby. Hit head in bathroom as small door, no warning signs. Door loose, draughty windows. Breakfast small and nothing remarkable. Staff friendly and welcoming
