“A Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

I thought I was just reviewing the restaurant rather than the hotel, so excuse me if you are looking for a review of the hotel. The following is just my view of the restaurant.

A group of us had an evening meal prior to settling into a nearby holiday cottage. After a longish drive when arriving into the lovely building, it was as though the fatigue of the day just melted away.

The service was friendly and excellent and the food was nicely prepared and presented. There may have been adventurous food in prospect, but we went for the more traditional "comfort" feed. This was good in quality and was of ample portions.

Several of us wondered whether the next trip here should also have accommodation to take advantage of the good range of beers.

We arrived during the dark a,d suspected the views from the hotel would be good. When walking in the daytime the day after dining here, this was confirmed with the sweeping views across the dale.

Have just returned from having our wedding at Simonstone and the whole weekend was fabulous, we had visited possible venues around the Lake District, Northumberland and Yorkshire but none could compare to Simonstone in terms of location,quality and value for money. We visited on 4 occasions prior to the wedding and each time received great service and lovely food, over the wedding weekend Franco and his happy team attended to every detail and nothing was too much trouble, the wedding arrangements were handled expertly and efficiently by Emma the wedding co-ordinator.
The food over the whole weekend was exceptional in terms of quality and quantity and far exceeded our expectations.
All the rooms are of a very high standard and kept spotlessly clean, the rooms on the front have wonderfull views across the dale, the lounge and bar are very cosy and we really felt at home.

In our opinion you will not find a better wedding venue in the North of England, many of our guests are planning to return for weekends and we have already booked for our anniversary!

Room Tip: Rooms on the front are huge with great views across the dale.

We have stayed at this wonderful country hotel on several occasions. We also had our wedding in 2005 booking the hotel for 3 days for all our guests. The experience just gets better and better. Franco and his team are fabulous attending to every detail. We ate in the restaurant both nights on our recent stay and the food is outstanding.
For a great stay try this country hotel. We think it is the best .

Staying in a nearby cottage we were recommended this place for lunch. We were the only 2 in for lunch which is not a problem at this time of year but you would expect better for the prices. No bread yet side plates on the table, food bland, unseasoned, undressed, unbuttered nor cooked properly. A boat of lumpy gravy served next to the dish add flavour and moisture. Sat far too long with our dirty plates, declined the dessert and opted for the coffee. Staff were getting trained on online booking. Need to train on how to treat guests first.

this was our 3rd stay at Simonstone over the last 15 years so we have seen it change a lot but we keep coming back so it must say something. The location is still great its beautiful walking countryside. Simonstone is a lovely hotel and we always take our dog and it is properly dog friendly. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the superior rooms are very comfortable and all very different with gorgeous period details like big stone fireplaces. the standard room which our teenage children stayed in was basic and no view of any kind except over the kitchen roof and a bit dark and still not cheap. The last time we visited a few years ago the bar was bigger with cosy sofas at the end and a lovely atmosphere. Now however they have got rid of the cosy bit and put a wine vault which looked nice but seemed a bit of a waste of space and the bar area is now a bit cramped with little seating. We ate in the restaurant all 3 nights we were there and though the food was good it wasn't excellent and it was the same menu all three nights we were there which for the standard of hotel and the money we were paying is not comparable to other hotels of the same standard. It also got a bit boring. All in all though still a lovely hotel and we will probably go back but only for 1-2 nights.

Room Tip: go for a superior room to avoid disappointment and to get a view

Stayed one night at Simonstone for a friends wedding and decided to book a room so we could enjoy the evening with out worrying about getting home. The room we had booked included breakfast for £180 and when we arrived the room that was offered was wonderful. Nicly decorated and the bed was huge, i joked to the lady and asked if it was just us in the bed as it could fit a few more. The wedding was great and the food was brilliant. To say we slept well was an understatment and after a shower we headed down from breakfast. the spead was wonderful and offered everything that you could have wanted the cooked was a buffet that you could help yourself to and there was a all sorts of pastires and muffins to tuck into. Well worth the stay and the view over Haws is worth a gaze at...
