To be honest we only booked to stay here because it was last minute and there was nowhere else left. We paid over £80 for a superior room and notified them on the booking form that my partner was coeliac and therefore requested a gluten free breakfast (the menu for the restaurant states they do gluten free sausage).
The room was clean, had a good view over the dales and that's about all the good things. Make no mistake, my partner and I have stayed in many hotels and this was one of the more expensively priced we have stayed in so we were a little disappointed that everything was so dated. We like antique furniture but not a rickety bed with 1980s kettle, cups, bedside radio and trouser press! It gave the ambience of a stereotype old people's home.
We could probably have forgiven this right up until breakfast.... As I stated earlier my partner is Coeliac, however they clearly had not read our booking notes and told us quite dismissively there was nothing gluten free but there might be some GF bread in the freezer. This was quite annoying but this was compounded by them being presented with the most disappointingly bland cooked breakfast. No local ingredients, cheap 'bread' sausage and generic toast. The scrambled egg clearly microwaved and the jam thin on the ground. I would have expected that being in a lovely village in the dales with many local farms and butchers that at least some of the element of the breakfast was locally sourced.
Quite what our 80-odd quid paid for left us wondering.... We checked out never to return.
