Clean, friendly, warm and cracking breakfast. Had a day at Xmas markets then stayed here. I like the idea of the locked pin safe to get key, just modern and less fuss. Owner down to earth, friendly guy with his finger on the pulse of what people need. Breakfast great and cooked by owner. Will definitely stay again when in... More

I must say this has to be one of the best places I've stayed. Having been caught out by train cancellations, Glad to have found a room at the last minute after they had a cancellation. Breakfast was a wonderful experience. The host was so welcoming and accommodating.

Stayed for one night in room five. The bed was comfortable and the room spotlessly clean. There was some paint peeling off the wall in the shower, however that is nitpicking !!! Breakfast was cooked to order and was more than acceptable. Great location in the centre of town with free parking. It isn't luxury but is fine place for... More

It's good that you enjoyed your stay We are aware that the decor is in need of some TLC but the B & B has simply been too much in demand this year to entertain it. There will be an additional room for 2016 which will hopefully allow for us to carry out some renovation work on a rolling basis,... More

I stayed one night when I was down in Yorkshire on busines but could happily have stayed longer. The safe, private car park was a huge bonus as was the location of the B&B. Near the town centre, bus station, canal, restaurants etc yet tucked away in a quiet corner. My room was lovely and clean and the en-suite was... More

We had the family room: 1 double and 2 full-width singles with en suite bathroom up a steep set of stair; only a velux window. The room was cramped: only space for 1 bedside table. Difficult for more than one person to get dressed at a time. The bathroom was good - but the hot water for the bath was... More

I phoned in advance to book the available ground floor twin room for myself and my husband as a stopover on the way back from a hospital consultation in Leeds. We knew it was going to be a long day so decided not to do the journey in one day. I was delighted to have the booking confirmed as I... More

I am sorry to hear that you felt that way Carol. You were certainly not lied to as we have two ground floor rooms which can be used for twin occupancy, the other is a double below the room you stayed in, which we quite often add a single bed in, should the need arise for a second twin as... More

Booked into here for one night never been before but found it a lovely place to stay. Nippon clean rooms and nice comfortable beds. The free car parking was a real bonus. The breakfast was just what we needed after a night round skiptons many pubs

Situated on a noisy industrial estate with several garages no secure parking and a walkway to the nightclubs on a weekend and a short cut to the town centre as is next to the bus station and taxi ranks and fast food outlets which is very noisy on a weekend with all the drunken people walking through.

Mick C, Owner at The Town House, responded to this review

Whilst everyone is entitled to an opinion and to leave their review comments, this appears more of a verbal assault based on half truths and smacks of vendetta. The B & B is most certainly NOT on an industrial estate unless this has been redefined as centrally located with a private car park shared with a local garage business. The... More

We arrived just as Mick was finishing our room, a very friendly welcome & a pleasant host. The room was on the ground floor, so no stairs for us, which is good point. It was very clean & tidy, ample space in the room with a large ensuite shower room. Very handy for town as it's about 150 yards from... More
