The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa
Scale of 90-100
Owned by the Dukes of Devonshire since 1753, this 40-room property is set beside the River Wharfe on the Bolton Abbey estate. We recommend the Superior and Luxury rooms in the handsome 17th-century main inn, as the modern extension lacks architectural distinction. The comfortable Herbert Royle Suite is gracefully adorned with heavy floral fabrics, wall-to-wall carpeting, period furniture and a living room with a gas fireplace. The hotel is decorated with art from the late Dowager Duchess of Devonshire’s private collection. Other amenities include an atmospheric cocktail lounge, a colorful brasserie and a contemporary restaurant serving modern Yorkshire cuisine. A historic barn on the property houses a full-service spa with an indoor pool. The timeless, civilized setting of this property embodies the best of the English country house experience.

The extremely picturesque setting; comfortable and atmospheric accommodations; the exceptional restaurant.
The hotel’s extension lacks the architectural distinction that the lovely setting demands.
