“Fantastic Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

We stayed at Simonstone Hall with 2 other couples, I have been passing this hotel for the last 40 yrs, have eaten, drunk and been to weddings there but never had the opportunity to stay overnight. So we decided to book with friends and have a nice long weekend and loved every minute.
The hotel is in a stunning location, lots of nice walks in the area and plenty of things to do, the grounds are stunning too and being able to sit out at the back and watch the new born lambs running around in the field next to the hotel was lovely.
We ate both nights in the brasserie, the food was nice although frozen chips in this kind of hotel was a little dissapointing, but you can't have everything I suppose !! Staff were extremely friendly on reception and in the bar / brasserie. We had a Dales Room (no 8) and were very impressed, the bathroom looked slightly dated and could do with modernisation but that is the only critisism. When we awoke on the first morning we made coffee, opened the curtains and laid in bed to soak up the magnificent view from this room.
I am so glad we booked this weekend, our friends loved it too and they all said they would love to return. We are already saving and planning our next trip to Simonstone Hall :)

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, will be back. Good ambience, good food, interestingly decorated and clean rooms, friendly staff and excellent service. It really was that good. Unfortunately the weather was not good so couldn't explore outside but there was a good veranda where I could imagine sitting with a beer looking at the view of an evening. One of our party was disabled and the ground floor room was of a good design to help make the stay comfortable and the staff were always on hand to help his movement around the hotel. There we're a couple over very small mods. to the room that would made the room ideal but they really are minor. Thanks for a great stay

Just loved this hotel. Lived up to the expectation and hope I have the opportunity to stay again.
Room was lovely, with fabulous view. The staff were friendly, polite and professional.
The bar area was very warm and welcoming and the hotel had a nice atmosphere to it.
The food was delicous, and service excellent.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night and were captured by the place from the moment we arrived. We drove up to view the property at 11:30am and noticed a sign offering morning tea. When we mentioned that we were to spend the night the receptionist offered to check if our room was available and straight away checked us in before serving beautiful coffee and scones. We had reserved a superior room but due to an error on the reservation email we were upgraded to a luxury room which was amazing. The room was extremely large with comfortable chairs and a king size bed which was very comfortable. The view from the room over the Yorkshire Dales, much of which was covered with snow was superb. Our package included dinner bed and breakfast and the food and service by the waiter, who was originally from Transylvania, was first class. This is an amazing hotel with so much character and we would highly recommend it to those travellers looking for an unforgettable experience.

Room Tip: Room 14 is worth the extra with lovely afternoon sun

A lovely approach out of Hawes upto the hotel. Nice welcome, very friendly staff. The Peroni on draught went down wonderfully well and the bar is set out well. Some lovely public rooms and our bedroom was very nice, spacious and stylish. The bed was a little past its best, but still got a decent nights sleep. The full english breakfast was lovely and a nice start to the day. Close by are the Aysgarth falls which are well worth a visit. Would definitely visit Simonstone Hall again.

We stayed for just the Saturday night, based on having visited 9 months before for the wedding of a friend. As before the service was excellent and very friendly. We had a meal in the restaurant, which was very good, if a little expensive at £35 a head. We had a superior bedroom which included a four poster bed. The decor was fresh and relaxing with lots of space. The bed huge and comfortable. The en-suite modern and spotlessly clean. We would happy recommend this hotel.

Lovely warm inviting hotel. Open fire in the cosy bar. Everywhere looked to be newly decorated and thoughtfully furnished. Food was excellent with a good choice and service first class. Our only negative comment would be that in our room 18 it had a lovely large bathroom but curiously no shower. Also rather hard lumpy mattress and also no dressing table mirror to sit at to dry hair. We would certainly have no qualms in recommending this hotel.
