Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Warmth exudes’ from the Reynolds family’s ‘happy’, ‘comfortable’ small hotel: ‘They obviously know exactly how to make the place tick.’ This ‘homey’ spot has charm in spades, and ‘lots of places to relax’; in ‘snug’ public areas, find a ‘crackling’ fire, board games, coffee-table books, ‘well-stuffed armchairs’. Bedrooms vary in size and style; the best, in the newly converted Victorian loft, is a spacious open-plan suite with views across Burn Moor to the forest of Bowland beyond. ‘Ours had a gilt wicker bedhead, brocade fabrics, a lovely Persian rug. The tea tray held a proper teapot, a cafetière and mugs, biscuits, fresh milk in a flask.’ Yorkshire produce serves as inspiration in the restaurant, where the newly appointed head chef, Thomas Pickard, formerly at Swinton Park, cooks modern English dishes, perhaps brochette of local rabbit loin, pickled radish and cucumber salad. ‘We loved the cheese menu, which gave details of both cheese and cheesemaker.’ Breakfast is ‘generous’: tuck in to home-made preserves on ‘thick toast’; an ‘enormous’ full English. Good walking from the door; guides, maps, packed lunches available. (SH, Julie Griffiths)

Guest comments

'Our third visit, as good as ever. Our room was on the small side but it overlooked the garden and the distant hills. The bed was comfy and the room was well appointed. The bathroom was modern with a good shower and plenty of storage space. The food was excellent once again. We do not eat a cooked breakfast so if was very pleasing to see a wide fruit selection. The staff were all friendly and helpful. A lovely place and excellent value. ' - Peter Anderson - June, 2016
'Its location is excellent for the Dales. It gives a good impression on arrival, a welcoming fire and attentive help at reception. The public areas are attractively furnished. The staff were very helpful: when we returned from walking in the rain, our kit was whisked away for drying. Our room, newly created in the roof space was stunning; spacious and with exposed beams with interesting shapes. Breakfast and dinners were in keeping with this standard, and much enjoyed. ' - Max Lickfold - April, 2016
'A homely, comfortable hotel that has lots of different areas to relax in - they even have board games and lots of gorgeous coffee table books to peruse whilst enjoying a drink or two! Lots of homely touches, an amazing menu and food to die for. Loved the cheese menu. ' - Julie Griffiths - March, 2015
'With 45mph winds and driving rain, combined with mile upon mile of M1 roadworks, a long-planned anniversary weekend away might reasonably have been deemed to be a bit of a write-off. The Traddock ensured that this was not the case. It is a treasure of a small hotel. Breakfast and dinner left us in need of more walks than we got; well-sourced local food, with lots of interesting choices. Wine by the glass was good-value and there are some very decent local ales. There was a happy buzz about the place. The family obviously know exactly how to make the place tick; the staff are welcoming in an entirely natural way. ' - Sophie Harrowes - March, 2015
