Stayed at the hotel this weekend for some friends wedding. What a lovely place, the scenery around the hotel and the the whole area is simply stunning. The hotel was warm and welcoming. The wedding was simply great, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was lovely, only the drinks are a bit on the steep side! Warm and cosy rooms, which were just right for such a drop in the temperatures that day and night. Had a lovely full English breakfast and on our way. Would go back without a doubt. Collapse

Went there with friends for a birthday lunch this Tuesday. Very quiet time but we were made very welcome, seated in a window corner with a magnificent view over Burnsall and the dale and well looked after by the staff, who were also busy putting up Christmas decorations. The food is simple, delicious and well presented and the choice of menu is good, though not too extensive. The service was friendly and efficient and it's so good to be chatted to by staff who were busy doing other things, but not too busy to include customers who are in the same room. A very pleasant experience and we will certainly return very shortly. Collapse
An excellent hotel base to explore the Dales

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay here. We only had two nights, but were impressed with every aspect of the hotel. We had two evening meals. The first was a 'tasting menu'. I had expected small portions of each course, but was wrong. The portion size was generous and each dish very well cooked and presented. I especially enjoyed the guinea fowl. Our second evening meal was from the a la carte menu and was again an excellent meal. We both had the fish dish 'stone bass ' and found it very tasty and the presentation was again excellent. I must mention our desserts, which were raspberry sorbet and a mango mousse. Both were memorable. Breakfasts were generous portions of well cooked local produce and set us up for a day's visits around the Dales. Our rooms were well equipped and comfortable; I had two superb nights' sleep, which is a rarity for me, but the quiet and the darkness of a early winter morning surely helped. The staff were helpful in every possible way, from the first greeting to the final check out. This was not a cheap trip out, but very good value. One word of warning is that there are lots of steps outside the hotel and lots of stairs within. If that creates a problem, be warned. Having said that, the staff were quick to offer help, which eased that access problem for me. Collapse
Not a good nights sleep

I suppose I need to paint a picture. We were attending a family wedding and took the opportunity to book a 'petite double' with the discounted rates of the wedding party (£165). We were particularly looking forward to it as it was Saturday night away from our 10 month old who still hasnt mastered the art of sleeping! The thought of a few drinks at the wedding do and a good sleep was something we were really looking forward to. Unfortunately what followed really ruined it for us. Rather than a lie-in we were woken at 7.30am by what can only be described as the space shuttle taking off outside our window. It turns out this wasn't really a space craft but actually the expel air for the kitchen. Unfortunately it is so loud it is impossible to get back to sleep. So being the good partner I am I said I'd get up and make us a cup of tea. The fresh milk is kept in a fridge on the landing at the top of the stairs, so I put on my robe and ventured out. Unfortunately there wasn't any milk! I headed up to next floor and used theirs!. Unfortunately once back in my room the kettle didnt work. Reception brought up another. Unfortunately it transpired it wasnt the kettle that didnt work, non of the plug sockets worked. Called reception again, apparently they had to turn a switch on to get power back on. great relaxing stay! Unfortunately service at breakfast was poor. there was very little staff in attendance and after waiting 10 mins we were attended to. We asked what the options were. He toddled off to get menus as there weren't any. Both ordered cooked breakfast, but then had to ask for the mushrooms that they'd forgot. I know this sounds like I'm going on, but when you pay £165 for a room you just expect the little things to be right. It came as a bit of a shock when checking out that a voluntary £8.95 service charge was added to the bill. So in summary, if you book to stay, ask not to be in the Appletreewick room unless you want a 7.30am spaceship alarm call. All in all, not good Collapse

There are not enough words to describe how amazing The Devonshire Fell made our wedding feel. From beginning to end the entire team were fantastic. The whole team were friendly, attentive and worked with ease around the crowds. Special mentions have to go to; Hannah (events manager) for co-ordinating the entire day with a relaxed approach, a trait that was very welcomed, Helen (manager) for being absolutely fantastic throughout our entire stay, especially in the morning when my bridal party were getting ready- she was always up for a giggle, and then Anita for making the most amazing hot toddies to help me rid my cold. I also have to say an enormous thank you to the chef!! Gary and I took the decision to offer our guests the choice to pre-select their menu and it was worth every penny! The quality of the food was absolutely amazing and I know everyone loved the food. To any future couple I cannot recommend The Devonshire Fell enough, partied up with Vanessa Wellock (florist) Kathryn Widdowson (photographer) and Rachel Neilson (make up) you really are in for a very special day where I can guarantee you’ll feel like a king and queen. Hannah, Helen and team a huge thank you! See you 18th Nov 2018 for our first anniversary. Collapse
