What people are saying about The Black Horse Hotel

Wharfdale v Caldy - Rating 5/5

We were in Grassington for the rugby match and once again chose the Black Horse as our base. It offers quality twin rooms which are not always available locally. As usual, an excellent breakfast and friendly, reliable service so without doubt we\'ll be returning.

Lovely Stay - Rating 5/5

We stayed at the Black Horse having walked from Ilkley to Grassington with our dog. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere in the bar area was good. The room was very clean and very nicely presented and the bed was really comfortable. Our family came to meet us for a meal, everyone enjoyed the food. We had a lovely stay and would recommend the Black Horse.

Excellent service and very dog friendly - Rating 5/5

We stayed for four nights in the black horse. The breakfast was good- piping hot and served quickly; the bar had a good selection of ales; the room was big and clean. We took our Labrador with us and the room was big enough for him, he also allowed in all rooms and there were doggy treats for him in the bar! Staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the location is an ideal base for walks to Hebden, Linton and Grassington Woods. Skipton is 15 mins drive, Harrogate about 20 mins.

Dickensian wk end - Rating 5/5

Stayed at the black horse for the Dickensian wk end. The staff were all very friendly and very helpful. The bar area was a lovely warm place to sit and have a drink or meal in front of log fire great on a cold day as it was probably the worst weather ever but never got us down. The restaurant was very nice food was well presented and at at a fair price we ate in the restaurant a few times. The double ensuite room was very warm and clean he shower was great as it was a nice hot mixer shower which was very clean and user friendly. The only problem we had was the mattress was a little to soft but that is personal choice overall a great hotel and will certainly be booking to stay there again. Many thanks for a great stay.

We found the black horse to be comfortable although the room was a little small. The recent Refurb has given the bar a more modern feel. The breakfast was lovely. All the staff were friendly & nothing was to much trouble. Would definately stay again

3 night break - Rating 4/5

We stayed 3 nights Aug 8/9/10th. On arrival found we were booked in 2nd floor room and my wife having breathing problems could not manage the stairs. Staff were very accommodating and even though they were full managed to find us a room on 1st floor which was fine. There was work going on in the hotel which restricted the evening meal menus (no a la carte).In spite of this, and it would appear staff working under difficult conditions, we were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Our stay at The Black Horse was very enjoyable. The staff were very helpful and the meals were excellent. It was a pity that we chose the week when the bar was being re-fitted but this did not stop us enjoying an evening drink. We would like to return to see the new bar in all its glory ! !

A Boy Named Sue - Rating 5/5

A great little hotel in the lovely village of Grassington - a perfect base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Our group of 8 adult male walkers received a warm welcome and were well looked after during our long weekend stay. The rooms were basic but good and clean, the breakfasts hearty and the pub grub delicious. Excellent value for money. Would definitely return!

Great place, great food, great everything - Rating 5/5

Stayed for one night in a twin room - well furnished to a good spec. The bar/restaurant area is an old building with lots of character, and the full English breakfast we were served was fantastic - all local ingredients and cooked to perfection, I would highly recommend The Black Horse for this alone! We felt the price was very fair and all the staff and the landlord were very welcoming and friendly, great customer service. All in all, I would highly recommend and would definitely stay there again!

Awesome - Rating 5/5

John and Debbie really have got this place on its feet. After visiting the other pubs in the village, we knew we had found the right one for us. The rooms are smart and modern, with excellent facilities and the bar has a relaxed atmosphere and great food. We were immediately made welcome and even though we were on such a short stay, we still got to know some of the staffs names. Thanks to Steve (the "walking stick" man and Nick and Tobi for making our short stay a memorable one. Cant wait to go back.

Very Good Short Break - Rating 4/5

Every member of staff we met at the Black Horse made us feel very welcome and were very courteous. Travelling with my wife and 2 daughters, the room was very comfortable and clean but could have done with an extra mirror. Because we were in Grassington for a family wedding, we didn't eat in the hotel of an evening but the breakfasts were very good, the food was hot and the service very good.

Reviewer: Mr. Paul Sheppard | Mon 6th Jun 2011

great place friendly staff and real value - Rating 5/5

Stayed on first night of Way of The Roses cycle route on a busy bank holiday. Staff could not have been more helpful or accomodating. We stayed in what was described as "bunk style" accomodation. If anything this was undersold. I was expecting a youth hostel style set up but the room and especially the En suite shower was better than most B+B i've stayed in and the cost (£25 ppn) was a bargain including breakfast. Breakfast was massive and we left the next morning well fuelled and rested for the rest of the ride. VERY HIGHLY RECOMENDED

Our stay - Rating 5/5

I had booked our stay as a Christmas gift for my husband. From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome, shown to our room, meal times and room facilities were explained. Our room had recently been refurbished and looked wonderful. The room was very clean, bed linen crisp and oh such a comfortable bed!! Unfortunately, not all the channels were accessible. Breakfasts were wholesome, filling and piping hot. Our evening meal on the Saturday was very good. All in all, an excellent stay. The Black Horse is to be recommended. We will be back!!
