The Fountain Hotel
Ranked #15 of 23 Hawes B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Stayed for one night touring the Dales. Back room had recently been refurbished and had a wonderful view of the Dales. Think the front may have been less quite as it is in the Main Street. Breakfast very good.
More refurbishments due and must say needed in some areas particularly
the breakfast room. Parking a bonus as limited in Hawes, Wi-fi also.
Would not recommend restaurant, too noisy and too many dogs in the bar!

The Fountain Hotel at Hawes is a great place to take lodgings if you are walking the Pennine Way, or doing anything else in the locality for that matter. Angus and Mandy McCarthy are great hosts, the rooms, with TV's are clean and cosy and they put on a terrific "Full English" breakfast. Certainly for the hale and hearty.

Had three nights stay at the Fountain Hotel 21st to 24th July 2014. My wife and I were in room 12 at the top of the building front facing into the main street. Ok so it did not stop the traffic noise, through the daytime, but at night it was nice and quiet. The room was immaculate, clean, good double bed and all the usual facilities, ie ensuite, tea and coffee, flat screen TV, all the comforts of home. The staff were brilliant. The food was of a very good quality and well presented. Nothing was too much trouble. We would certainly stop there again when we revisit the Yorkshire Dales.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear are the quietist.

Stayed here overnight as part of our road trip following the route of the recent "Tour de France" Yorkshire Dales section. Basic pub accommodation not for those seeking 5 star or even 3 star hotel accommodation. BUT the welcome was cheerful, the hotel very clean, the breakfast as good as I have had in any starred establishment, very good bar food in friendly locals type bar and excellent value all round. Hawes is a lovely market town amidst some of the best scenery to be found in Britain. Lovely walk to Hardrow and the famous Green Dragon pub.
Will definately return.

Stayed at the Fountain again this month, excellent value, very friendly, could not ask for more (perhaps free beer next time?). It is a pub, not the Ritz, so don't expect a limousine! And all the better for it.

This is a fairly basic hotel probably mostly catering for walkers. We had an ensuite double room which we were very pleased with. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean and serviced on a daily basis. We booked a stay at probably the most busy period (Tour de France) but were made to feel very welcome and the staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful. Meals were hearty pub fare and generous in portion. The cooked breakfasts were exceptional!
Many thanks to Angus, Mandy and their team for a very memorable stay. Would definitely return.

We booked at the last minute and managed to get the last dog friendly room. We arrived and room came supplied with dog bed, bowl and an envelope of dog treats. The hotel was clean and comfortable, though a little dated. There is a sign to say that the hotel is going through a process of refurbishment. But to be fair its not too bad. Breakfast was very well cooked and good value for money. Just remember if you take a dog to ask for a key to the outer door should you need to go out in the night for a constitutional visit. The outer door is locked between 11:30 and 7:30.
