Recent guests at Kettlewell Hostel near Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales sing the praises of this award-winning hostel, “The food was delicious, the building immaculate and the atmosphere very warm and relaxing”.
Their full message is as follows: Dear Floss and Saul, Thank you for our wonderful few days at your lovely hostel. From the moment we stepped in to the building, the warmth and welcome were obvious – the simple act of showing us around the hostel and taking the time to chat means a lot . It is abundantly clear that you both love your hostel and your business. The food was delicious, the building immaculate and the atmosphere very warm and relaxing. As a volunteer manager at a few hostels during the summer months we have travelled much of the YHA network over the years. For me, it is difficult to think of any other hostel that comes close to yours – and that includes others that, like Kettlewell, have become independents. Thank you and we wish you every success and all the very best for the future.
