Good Hotel Guide Review

‘One of my favourites.’ ‘Deserves a glowing account.’ Readers are full of praise for the Reynolds family’s dog-friendly, people-friendly hotel in the Dales. The Georgian house, built on a trading paddock (hence tr’addock) and extended in Victorian times, is ‘very comfortable’, with ‘plenty of spaces for wet-weather days’ in lounges with log fires. The staff are commendably helpful. A couple coming in from the rain ‘had our kit whisked away for drying’. Bedrooms have ‘tasteful furniture’, rich fabrics, antiques, luxury toiletries. You can choose a bath or shower – or both. Town Head, under the eaves, has mood lighting, a limestone-tiled bathroom, cast iron bath, walk-in shower, widescreen views. Double-aspect Gordale has an in-room, roll-top bath. All rooms have fresh fruit, home-made biscuits, bottled water. The new chef, Darren Cornish, cooks such dishes as Yorkshire short rib, caramelised onion, heritage carrot, pomme mousseline, bone marrow, parsley sauce. Breakfast brings Manx kippers, eggs Benedict with honey-glazed ham, smoked haddock. ‘Excellent for walking, cycling, fishing’, with packed lunches and picnic hampers to order. (F Kuhlmann, ML)

Guest comments

'We the biggest room in the house, and it was huge. Lots of storage space too. My wife liked it. I thought the décor needed updating. But it was quiet and comfortable, The food is so good. Nouvelle cuisine and it could have done with more vegetables, but this is a common problem. Breakfast was ok. The staff are all excellent, very friendly and efficient.

'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.
