We stayed for two nights in one of the Courtyard Superior rooms. Everything about our stay was perfect. The room was extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean, and well furnished. We had the usual tea and coffee facilities en suite with the offer of fresh milk or cream available at no extra cost from reception. The bathroom was newly refurbished with big, soft white , (not grey) fluffy towels and "White Stuff" toiletries.
The breakfast menu offered plenty of choice and the food was well cooked and presented.
We ate in the restaurant both evenings and on both occasions enjoyed superb meals. The meat was locally sourced and perfectly cooked, absolutely mouth watering! The restaurant and bar menus were the same so you could eat the same top quality meals in a less formal setting if you wished.
The bar offers a fine choice of locally brewed beers as well as a good selection of wines.
Every member of staff- the reception staff, the bar staff, the waiters and waitresses, the chef, and the management was polite , helpful and courteous.
Of course the setting of the hotel adds to the ambience. The beautiful little village of East Witton with its village green and one shop is idyllic, set in the beautiful surrounds of Wensleydale.
We will definitely return to this hotel, sooner rather than later!
