We had a wonderful stay at Dowgill House. The beds are extremely comfortable, the building is peaceful and we slept like logs! Everything was clean and the shower was so powerful I was clean in seconds. Free parking, delicious breakfast, perfect location - Tim and Helen were kind and friendly, even lending us their sat nav for the day. If... More

Had a lovely stay here with Tim & Helen, the whole village had got into the Tour experience and was well decorated. The room was very comfortable and breakfast excellent, even got lactose free milk for me. Will stay again and recommend to others.

We stayed here from 15 to 18 June 2014 whilst visiting Family in Otley. Tim and Helen are lovely hosts and their home is amazing. We stayed in Room 2 at the front of the House. The bed was very comfy, you do get some road noise if the windows are open but we still slept well. The en-suite shower... More

Dowgill House is a charming B&B in the Centre of Otley operated by two very friendly and welcoming owners. We were heading to Ascot Ladies Day at the Roebuck, so the B&B made every effort to get our rooms ready for late morning. Mine wasn't quite ready, but to be fair, they were replacing my carpet as a previous guest... More

Highly recommend this very comfortable B&B in Otley, gorgeous breakfast, great location and excellent value for money. My daughter has recently moved to Otley and I will now be planning my visits around Dowgill's availability!

We stayed for one night to visit our Mum in Otley. We felt we could easily stay here for a long time to enjoy a break! We were welcomed warmly by Tim who offered help with our bags from the convenient parking right in front of the house. You are next to all amenities of the village. Tim showed us... More

I stayed at the Dowgill for 5 nights in March 2014. What a lovely place to stay. An old fashioned building with mod cons. Beautifully clean. The breakfast each morning was lovely. Very pleasant hosts. I have recommended the Dowgill to friends and I hope to stay there again in the future.
