“Superb Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

My friend and I enjoyed a Sunday lunch here to mark her birthday and we were delighted with the standard of the food, the roast beef was in fact the best I have EVER tasted. Good service, delightful English sparkling wine, fresh tasty vege and delicious puddings. It could not have been nicer.
New visitors please note that the hotel does have a parking area. The No Parking at the entrance is a bit confusing but it belongs to the house on the corner and the hotel has a car park beyond the sign.

Room Tip: We were diners only so cannot comment on rooms

My wife and I had an enjoyable one night stay at this Hotel. Efficient and friendly service - in particular the waiters and bar staff. We enjoyed the ambiance of the bar and our evening meal was excellent.

Only negative was that we were not impressed with the en suite arrangement which was open plan including the toilet ! Would have liked a door !

Room Tip: We stayed in the Alcock room and our sleep was disturbed by a droning electrical noise from below...

Both my wife and me stayed over for a night whilst travelling through the dales. It is a great little place and the staff are fantastic. Rooms are very clean and neat. The food in the restaurant is the best around and would recommend this as a great place to stay when visiting the Yorkshire Dales.

We went for a one night stay what a beautiful hotel, we had a roll top bath in the room which was decorated to a very high standard. Nice little touches in the room which overlooked the Market square. Stayed for dinner which again was fab could not fault the place. Lovely market town with nice shops.

When planning a holiday in Scotland we decided to travel via Fountains Abbey and stay in Grassington. We had no idea, until we arrived, that it was the Festival. Consequently, the hotel and its restaurant were very busy. We were warmly welcomed and were delighted with our room, The Square (no. 4), but the highlight was supper in a restaurant which was under pressure form the numbers who wanted to dine. Whilst, understandably, the timings slipped a little, the standards remained high. Impeccable service from an engaging front of house team and a meal which did not miss a beat confirmed this hotel's commitment to high standards. It is relatively easy to have high standards when the pressure is off, but when it is on, as it certainly is during a Festival, that shows a hotel's calibre. Thank you for looking after us so well and for a memorable meal. We sleep well this night.

I recently stayed at this hotel with my sister for a girly weekend. It was my second visit and was every bit as enjoyable as the first time. Room 11 is one of the smaller rooms but is beautiful and is comfortable. Lovely toiletries plus a bottle of mineral water every day. Yummy biscuits too.
Dinner was delicious both nights. We shared The Tempting Taster Slate the first night and treated ourselves to the Tempting Dessert Slate on the second night (I can highly recommend both). The restaurant was very busy both evenings but the service was excellent, never rushed. There is plenty of choice for breakfast and I'd travel back every morning for the muesli if I could!
All the staff we encountered were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.
Grassington itself is a lovely village with a several little shops. I hope it's not too long before I'm back again!
