Facilities at The Rose and Crown at Romaldkirk

The hotel oozes with character with open fire places, wibbly wobbly walls, oak beams, it is a truly unique property and with only 14 rooms each guest feels special. The rooms have undergone a refurbishment in 2014 and still retain original features with modern amenities. Being in such a picturesque village the church is known as 'The Cathedral of the Dale' and still on the village green are the stocks and water pumps from days gone by.

The restaurant is known in the area and has been awarded some of the top awards yet the food is homely rather than fussy and the hotel endeavors to source as many ingredients as possible from local suppliers.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rose & Crown which we thought was a lovely hotel, spotlessly clean, delicious food and top notch staff. The TV in our room was not working properly which I'm sure they will rectify, but in every other respect our room was very comfortable and well-appointed.

Nice gift from our family

KD, Cleveland, stayed: July 2018

A very pleasant stay overnight . Tea and scones on arrival, excellent dinner and breakfast next morning. All the staff were pleasant, friendly without being intrusive. We had one slight problem with room 6 which we were allocated. I am over 6 feet tall and there were sloping ceilings in the lounge area and bathroom areas. This meant a few head bumping incidents on the beams of the ceiling . We didn't ask to change rooms as the bedroom was superb and we coped but it might be an idea to ask guests who are allocated room 6 how tall they are.  There are also steps inside the room so walking difficulties could be a problem to some people .
