Lovely place to stay after a long day in the saddle, especially room 17. I would have rated it excellent if they had sorted the bike storage. My bike was safe locked in an office however more cyclists would stay here if they sorted it and maybe gave a mid week discount to those arriving by bicycle :-) Everything else was perfect Collapse

I was lucky to be part of a recent wedding at this hotel staying for two days. The Hotel is in a wonderful location with fantastic views to the river and beyond. It is a short walk into the village. The hotel staff were very welcoming and the room was clean and tastefully decorated with a nice shower and bath. Tea Coffee and other drinks were available to be made in the room The bed was comfortable. Breakfast there was a good choice of cooked and cereals and fresh fruit. The meals were very good. The wedding venue itself was nice and space was made for entertainment in the evening. The only negative is their carpet which although well maintained was very bright on the stairs but that is just preference. Collapse

OMG where to begin! We recently had our wedding at DF and it is one of the best hotels I have been to. Not only because it has one of the most beautiful views I have seen, or because the food is stunning, or the hotel unique and a little quirky in parts but mostly because of the amazing team led by Jen. From start to end Hannah and Helen did a great job helping us plan our wedding and the whole team over the two days were amazing. We wanted something very relaxed and took over the hotel for 2 days. The hotel has 16 lovely bedrooms and lovely rooms for weddings and dinners. It has a fab conservatory you can sit in drinking whatever and drinking in the view. The food was delicious from when me and my bride arrived on Monday to our last big gorgeous breakfast on Saturday. This place is not only perfect for weddings but for any special occasion whether it is hiring it for a big get together for family or friends, or for a romantic time away. The sister hotel DEVONSHIRE Arms is nice but seems a bit more high brow (pomme purée rather than mash) and DEVONSHIRE Fell is classy but relaxed and in my opinion the food tastes better. However you can use the spa facilities in DA as a resident of DF, it's only a 10/15 drive away with pool, jacuzzi, steam etc. You are also close to Bolton Abbey which is a great trip out and the guys give you complimentary parking normally £10. Burnsall is amazing and a heaven for walkers of all grades whether you walk a pootle along the river to Grassington or hike up into the fells. Visit the DF and Burnsall and you will fall in love. Oh and you can bring your furry babies as well. Thank you to Jen and your amazing team. We will be back to visit you as soon as possible. You made our year! Collapse

Maybe we just got this hotel on a bad day but really we didn't have a great stay here. My wife and I were just wanting a nice quiet night away in the Dales and having stayed at the Devonshire Arms a number of times we thought we'd try the Fell. Unfortunately when we arrived everyone seemed to be a bit flustered and disorganised and this continued through our stay. We checked in to a Superior room however I'm not sure what made it superior - it was nice and looked towards the north east over the garden, but wasn't anything special. Everything was clean though so no complaints there. I went down to the bar to get a drink and must have waited 10 minutes. People seemed to be walking past but not noticing I was standing there. I ordered a bottle of wine and the person serving really didn't know where to look in the wine list to find the bin number, a bit shoddy really. When I ordered a pint of Timothy Taylors it was very lively and needed topping up twice, I asked if it was the end of the barrel and still ok and the barman said he didn't know as he didn't drink beer. Rather shoddy really. There were some unruly kids staying at the hotel which spoiled our stay somewhat although I cannot hold the hotel responsible for that. I wouldn't recommend this hotel as particularly suitable for children unless they are well behaved and quiet. or take them for a long walk to tire them out. Whilst the waiting staff were trying hard it was all a bit odd. The pre starters came on one board but was for both of us and was put in front of me so I wasn't sure if there was another coming or if that was it. Used glasses weren't removed from the table promptly. The biggest disappointment was the steak I ordered which was poorly cooked twice. It's not often that happens... My wife's food was very nice though - she had the Vegetarian Wellington which actually I would probably have preferred (and I don't often eat veggie!) The desert was again odd. A Strawberry Shortcake which was actually a scone. Had they run out of Shortcake and didn't think we'd notice? Breakfast tasted lovely but the table was lacking half the cutlery so we had to ask for spoons and forks. The staff did everything with a smile though and were trying hard to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Coffee and Tea took forever. On the one hand I feel a little harsh giving 2/5 as I have a hunch that key staff were not working and maybe the main chef was not in either, however,I have to rate it based on my personal experience. Could do much better and should get some staff up from the Arms to steer them in the right direction. Collapse
