My wife and I stayed here in August 2013. After having now stayed in many more B&B's, I keep reflecting back to The Mill at Borrowby and the very large room with the comfortable bed. Our room was extremely spacious being large enough to have a sofa at the end of the bed, a much appreciated desk and still have... More

We booked this venue based on the lovely location and feedback from the booking website. We were warmly welcomed by the hosts (and their dog). Our room was on the second floor, and was extremely spacious with a comfortable bed, ample storage and a sofa. As this building is a converted water mill there are beams and all the features... More

we paid £85 for one night in a garden view room. The room was of a good size with a large climb onto comfy bed and a large bathroom. The host Amanda was very helpful in recommending & directing us to a local pub (The Oak I think) where the food was good. My only complaint was the lack of... More

I wasn't going to write a review but after reading customer 202's review had to say something. My son and I were actually in the breakfast room when this rude conversation occurred. Completely uncalled for and very disturbing to hear a host speak like that to a guest. This (plus another completely uncalled for comment the night before to us)... More

Having been to Borrowby Mill before, it really was a no brainer that I chose it again on another visit to Yorkshire for a friends wedding. Having read some earlier reviews I must say I am shocked by what they have to say. At £50 per room my partner and I were very pleased with the service we received. Granted... More

I also saw a link on their website to four in a bed and watched a little of it to get an idea of what the place was like. Having being delighted by... More

Would of prefers more food for breakfast! The couple who owned it seem nice, they were very loud and personal and I did not get there sense of humour. Nor did my partner.... More

The nicest room we have ever had. Huge very comfortable bed, beautifully decorated room, clean and use of very comfortable large lounge. If you are reading older reviews please note Amanda does NOT do evening meals anymore but the thing you really have to watch out is that you HAVE TO PAY IN CASH. We specially booked the room with...
