Reviewed 22 May 2013

Found this on Trip Advisor and have been pleased with choice. Warm old fashion welcome with well stocked bar and good value food with flair. Rooms comfortable, warm if a little dated.
Ample parking and staff friendly and obliging. Nice country pub atmosphere. Perfect location for outdoor activities. Prices very competitive for the rest of the area.

Room Tip: Lovely views over the dales from Room 9

Just had bank holiday weekend here. The staff can't do enough for you especially the Manageress. I don't know how many hours she works but she always seemed to be around. The bar and serving staff are very young but every one of them was professional and courteous. The food is fabulous and the portions massive. My other half was in heaven. Bit too much for me so had a starter and dessert the second night. Chocolate mousse to die for. Breakfast was very good, cereal, fruit juices, yoghurts, toast, tea and coffee, then a really good choice of hot food ranging from full English to eggs benedict, crumpets with scrambled eggs (which were the best I have ever eaten). Only about a mile from the Ingleton falls walk it is ideally situated. Will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor. It's an old building so with that comes squeaky floorboards but it...

This is a character inn with a good bar and restaurant. The staff are friendly. The rooms are a bit tired and could do with an overhaul. The ensuite has a strong shower. Room was warm, despite it blowing a gale and snowing outside when we visited. Plenty of free parking. Handy location by turning off the A65, but set back in a village and quiet. Stayed in room 1 - bit of disturbance from pub guests who were standing outside smoking quite late. Fantastic breakfast. Great location on the edge of the Dales - perfect for the three peaks or a trip on the Settle-Carlisle railway.

It's great to see that the Marton Arms is back on form after a few below par years. 18 months ago we arrived on a Thursday night to find the bar all but closed and a refusal to honour the accommodation booking made 2 weeks previously. Whereas, on my recent stay I was met by friendly staff, the bedroom was warm and had obviously had a makeover and the food was excellent - dinner and breakfast. No more soggy chips hurragh! a sad feature of the Marton Arms even in its former glory days. Brilliant location for both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. It's heartening to see that the new management team have returned the Marton Arms to its previous high status. Even the collection of single malt whiskies is on the rise once again!

Room Tip: All great rooms in my experience

Got a half price Groupon deal, would have felt v.underwhelmed had we paid more! The staff, particularly Darren and Gary deserve praise, I would have been happy to feedback to more senior staff members, but they never appeared! Major investment needed in decor and facilities by senior management/owners in order to compete. Voiced opinion on checkout as thought it would be constructive and valued, not heard owt so dont know if passed on or ignored??? Any member of TA will know I always try to focus on positive.

Room Tip: Lesley advised me that rooms 7 & 8 were deluxe an therefore more expensive - I can only assume L...

Thank you for your review. I have noted your omments regarding the Marton Arms being a pub and not a hotel and can confirm that we do class our selves as a Country Inn and not a hotel. In regards to the hotel needing a refurb, we are decorting the hotel and this is still work in process. I am sorry I did not get to see you during your stay, your comments are very much welcomed. I hope to welcome you back in the near future.
Warmest Regards Lesley and Team

This was a perfect base for a short break in the Yorkshire Dales during a chilly week in April. We had a lovely 4 poster bed in a warm room. All the staff were friendly but professional and there were some nice touches that made all the difference e.g. the heating and towel rail had been turned on prior to our arrival. It is surprising how seldom this happens in the UK! Also we had booked a table in the restaurant and when we arrived there was a table by the log fire with a clock set at our time. Booking the restaurant is advised as it is clearly popular with the locals. The food was well cooked and presented. in the morning the breakfast chef made us personalised hot dishes with a smile.

We have just spent 3 nights at the Marton Arms and can strongly recommend it for your break in the Dales. This is our second stay here and we will return again, as there is so much to see in this area - caves, viaduct, Wenyslydale cheese factory, Malham cove, and numerous waterfalls. We had a room with a 4 poster bed which was very comfortable. The room overlooked the dales and was very clean with tea and coffee facilities and a hot powerful shower in the en suite. We had an evening meal every night which was delicious - compliments to the chef - and plentiful. Breakfast consisted of a buffet of cereal, yogurts, fruit and juices then we had a choice of hot food after which included: kippers, smoked haddock with poached egg, a full English breakfast plus many other options. Thank you Lesley and your team for making our break a fantastic one. See you again.
