Craven heifer stay 13 dec 2014
Stayed in room 3 for one night, the room was beautifully appointed with a lovely shower room. The hotel goes the extra mile with the little touches eg fluffy bathrobes, toiletries etc . We didn't stay for the evening meal but breakfast was superb and the waitress was very attentive. The only comment on the negative side is room 3 being one of the smaller rooms was a little cramped, but if you are only staying as we did for one night it isn't a problem. On the whole we had a very enjoyable stay and would visit again.

Fab stay, thoroughly recommended
We stayed 1 night to celebrate a special wedding anniversary & had a great time. The hotel is lovely, our room was in the lodge at the back & was very spacious with additional little touches, It is spotlessly clean & everything looks brand new. The staff were great from the welcome we received on our arrival to the waitresses at our evening meal & breakfast, all very professional & friendly. We will definitely go back & have no hesitation in recommending it to friends & family.

Lovely stay
Traveling on business and found this little gem. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The food is great! If I had to pick on something, it would be that the room was a little small. I have bruised knees from bumping in to the bed. But a lovely room none the less. Very clean and nicely decorated.

As our room was above the pub on the road, it was very noisy with the window open. Everything else was very good and the decor was lovely.

Top Marks!
My stay at The Craven Heifer was fantastic - I had a wonderful room (albeit next to the road so a little noisy with traffic), the food was excellent and the service outstanding. I will definitely be recommending to others and coming back again myself. Thank you to all at The Craven Heifer!
