We recently ate at Simonstone on the eve of our daughters wedding. I wanted a simple meal and choose salmon. It's was beautifully cooked, served with champ and vegetables. The were pleased with the whole experience ; we were in a hurry to get home so we were served quickly by a very friendly and pleasant waitress. I think that around £15 for a main course, it was very good value.

Room Tip: They are all good but I liked the ones overlooking the lawns and distant fells.

Likes:
Friendliness of staff.
Full English Breakfast. Porridge.
Plentiful supply of hot water
Magnificent views from excellent public rooms.
Excellent location for walking & many interesting places within a reasonable radius
Enjoyed one dinner of fish cakes and calves liver competently cooked in the brasserie but sought "fine dining" elsewhere.
Excellent bed.

Dislikes
"Fine Dining" Restaurant closed & informed no plans to open in foreseeable future - web site needs correcting if this is so, at a minimum guests should be advised at booking. Restaurant a main determinant of booking.
Ambiance & style not matching my expectations of "a country house" hotel although it has the potential to be such. Paper napkins at dinner, fine for local pizzeria, but sorry I don't think that is " country house" or what I would expect in any self respecting restaurant .for that matter. Bedroom a bit on small side (knee bruises from bed end) & view from window marred by redundant mattresses, radiator and bins.
No shower in bathroom.
Poor lighting for makeup - a not unusual complaint from my wife
Hair dryer not in range of any mirror..
Need (almost) to get down on knees to access sockets for essential charging of phones, tablets etc

Room Tip: Rear room small with marred views: photos of others look good.so request one like those

We spent a pleasant couple of hours enjoying afternoon tea at the Simonstone. The staff were pleasant and efficient, the food was tasty, particularly the sweet nibbles.

Had a good short walk to Hardrow force beforehand and relaxed into a comfy armchair in the lounge overlooking the valley watching the weather roll in.

Very glad to hear that you enjoyed your afternoon tea with us! - and very many thanks for the review.
We are now about to launch our Winter afternoon tea menu - definitely a tasty option before a frosty stroll in the Dales! - see you again soon.

First time here tonight, arrived with a friend for a drink and it's such a nice little place. Lovely bar area and plenty of space to sit both inside and outside.
Both staff members we saw were really friendly, approachable and welcoming.
Will definitely be returning!

Visited to check the hotel as a potential wedding venue. The public rooms and bedrooms rooms that have been upgraded are lovely and the whole place has huge potential but at the moment the entrance is at the rear and least attractive part of the building and the reception area and bar aren't very inspiring. Some of the rooms and bathrooms are drab but the relatively new owner and staff are welcoming and helpful and explained the changes planned. We decided to stay for lunch because we were there and hungry but without much expectation. However the food was a surprise - beautifully cooked hake with peas, Savoy cabbage and heritage potatoes, not over salted as with so many places, and nicely presented. The steak and black sheep pie and the chicken breast with mushroom risotto were also well received and all three of us were pleased that we had decided to give the place a chance. While we were eating more people arrived and all the plates of food looked tempting. The views are delightful and the terrace makes the most of them. We will watch the progress of the renovations with interest and definitely return to the restaurant.

Hi there - very many thanks for leaving a review!
I just wanted to check-in and let you know that renovation works on the entrance reception is now underway and is due to be completed within the next few days! - exciting changes and improvements.
Our new menus are also now live and well worth a go when you're next in the area!
