A town hotel yes, but they could tidy around the front door and garden pots etc - room not up to expectation at the price - new curtains do not cover old and faded wallpaper and carpet - bathroom had mould and very dirty between old type tiles, very dated bathroom suite and hot water took nearly half an hour...

Me and my husband had a great stay at the Dower House Hotel. We booked a Sunday night spa break which was great value for money. We really enjoyed using the spa facilities and the massages were amazing! We had a meal included in the evening which was very nice and breakfast in the morning also very good. The room... More

My husband, myself and two friends have just returned from a two night break at The Dower House, (4/6th April). We don't think that we could have gone anywhere else and met a more friendly team of staff. They are all an asset to the hotel, nothing was to much trouble and everything was done with a smile. The bedroom... More

This isn't a bad hotel but it is in danger of slipping into one. The staff are friendly enough (most of them) and we had a pleasant stay. The bedroom we had was small but comfy but the bedside cabinets were dusty on the lower shelf (my wife discovered this when she put some clothes there). We had an evening... More

We stayed here for 3 nights courtesy of TESCO rewards. I can honestly say this is one of the best "Best Western" hotels we have stayed in. The staff were all fantastic. They all got the balance right between not enough and too much attention. They were a credit to the hotel. The room we had was very well appointed,... More

Booked a last minute Spa Stay Over Treat with my daughter. Drove from South Shields to Knaresborough-really easy down A1. Arrived early as always like to "dump" overnight bag at reception and go off and use the facilities prior to 3pm check in.
