Chevin Country Park Hotel & Spa
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Otley
Reviewed 1 November 2013

We arrived last Monday and stayed for 2 nights, we had booked a package on-line with dinner and breakfast.

Upon arriving our first impressions were wow! its a mini centre parks!

We checked into our room, (room 10) the staff were also incredibly helpful, my partner had forgotten to bring her phone charger so one of the receptionists offered hers to use for a few days.

We had the dinner included in our stay and was expecting your usual pub grub, set menu of burger, fries and drink or hunters chicken, but instead we had a 6 course tasting menu! This was normally priced at £32.95 per head and was served in the lake view restaurant, it seemed to change each evening and was amazing, expertly cooked and presented.

The Chevin Country Park was a 10/15 minute walk away and was amazing we spent a good 2 hours walking in there and the views were priceless.

The spa facilities were also great, our favourite being the outdoor hot tub! There was also an indoor pool and jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and gym.

The only negative was that the treatments seemed to be a bit steep £70 for an hour Swedish massage, but I guess this is normal for a hotel/spa.

The stay overall was fantastic we couldn't fault the hotel or the staff who were always very helpful, we will definitely be back next time for a bit longer.

One tip would be to book in advance on-line as when we compared the price we paid on-line to a walk in guest we saved over £300.

Just returned from the Chevin Country Park hotel after a short midweek break. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely receptionist who dealt with us in a friendly and efficient manner. Our room was very nice with television, stereo, tea and coffee making facilities. Food served in the main restaurant was amazing at dinner time and breakfast and the staff were very friendly and efficient. The location of the hotel is ideal for exploring the local area of the Yorkshire dales with Ikley and Skipton nearby. A good hotel for a break. Only one problem at this time of year is that your car gets covered with leaves in the car park as the hotel is in a wooded area. I would use this hotel again

Room Tip: Choose a hotel room rather than a chalet then you do not get wet walking to the dining room

We attended a wedding here, having never been before was not sure what to expect. However the place itself is fine, although the toilets (male) could do with some attention, dripping pipes etc. however the place was clean and comfortable and warm. The staff were attentive and polite, the young man who seemed to be in charge of the wedding moving people from location to location and introducing the bride and groom, did a wonderful job and was very much on the ball, well done. The food was lovely particularly the pudding. Overall a great experience, although the bar prices are high a pint of Lager and a glass of wine, nearly ten pounds, but probably the same in most hotels. It's set in some lovely grounds and would recommend for a meal, can't comment on the hotel accommodation as not stopped in any of the rooms. However the staff were great from what we encountered.

We've stayed at the Chevin once before, as 'fly-drive' guests. It's very convenient for Leeds/Bradford airport - just a £6 trip each way.

Stayed again on 1st Oct, prior to flying the next day. Our room was in the main part of the hotel this time, and was lovely. It overlooked the lake, and was very comfortable. Only slight problem was that there wasn't a hair-dryer in the room. An apologetic receptionist brought one to our room, and told us that they get stolen!

Dinner was pretty expensive, but absolutely delicious! It was the 'taster' menu, ie tiny portions of soup, lamb, etc, but more than enough.

Breakfast the following morning was also extremely good. Minor criticism is that breakfast doesn't start until 7.30am, which meant a very hurried breakfast. Staff were excellent, and served us very fast.

Must mention staff that went 'over and above' during our stay. Samantha, on reception, looked after our booking (we booked direct). Very friendly and helpful.
On our return from holiday, we arrived back at the hotel to pick up our car. After 3 weeks of standing in the miserable British weather, it wouldn't start. Flat battery.... We went back into the hotel reception, to ring the AA. Leanne kindly offered the use of the hotel phone, as the signal for mobiles isn't good in the area. AA arranged to come out, approx 90 minutes later, so we planned to have a coffee at the hotel. Meanwhile, Charlie (who could be the night porter, or night-time duty manager, not sure), offered to give us a push. Lo and behold, the car spluttered into life! What a star! Thanks to you all.

Room Tip: Only the rooms in the main hotel, can access wi-fi. We've also stayed in one of the lodges, and...

This was a gift purchased from Groupon. A two night stay including a six course tasting menu and a bottle of wine. On arrival we were very warmly welcomed, and directed to our "lodge". WOW! A beautiful log chalet with a grass roof! It was magical. Our spacious, two bedroomed chalet was both warm and comfortable. A huge lounge with a fully fitted kitchen, plenty of towels, pillows and extra blankets. A swim in the pool is a must, but be aware that the floor of both the changing rooms and around the pool is very slippery. We weren't brave enough go in the outside jaccuzzi as it was raining, but there was an indoor, smaller one. Our meal in the cosy restaurant was extremely tasty, and served by friendly waiters/waitresses. We had the house wine, which was delicious, and enjoyed the whole experience . Breakfast again was delicious , with a choice of cereal, croissants and fresh fruit, followed by a choice of either full English, eggs Florentine, French toast with bacon and maple syrup ( my favourite ). Fresh orange juice, tea or coffee also. We felt very comfortable and relaxed at the Chevin and will definitely be back!

Very interesting building, friendly helpful staff in the hotel, large rooms and the food in the restaurant was excellent. Could perhaps do with an update on some furnishings in the rooms and some public areas and not overly happy with the staff at the leisure centre, although enjoyed using these facilities, only discovered by accident that the outdoor hot tub was going on our second and last night, but got to use it while a clear sky and full moon, lovely and relaxing.

I'd read the many poor reviews so have to admit I wasn't looking forward to our stay, I emailed the hotel and expressed my views but did not get a response so feared the worst.

The food was I admit quite nice, I was pleasantly surprised. The mushroom soup was delicious, the pork starter tasty, the lamb was well worked, we were told it was severed medium rare, but I think it was more rare, than anything, but that suited me. However the service was just adequate, we were served by very young staff (i suspect they just cover the weekends and probably have had minimum the training) as they just plonked each course down on the table, with little information about the dish, which did not I feel do the food justice.

The accommodation was very basic, and is as people described "tired" and in need of some updating, but it was clean.

We came on a groupon deal, and I would purchase one again. I would not however pay the advertised full price for accommodation of £155 for this quality.
