Needing to be near Leeds/Bradford airport for an early start Dowgill House ticked all boxes. Parking outside the front door, friendly reception from owners who gave great recommendations for food & drink (within 3 mins walk), a lovely room & a fantastic breakfast to set me on my way.

I've never written a TA review before but Dowgill House has been so fantastic that I felt I should. It's been a wonderful stay! They are very friendly, the breakfast is tasty, the rooms are clean and pleasant. Everything is how you'd want it.

I booked my hubby in here for 2 nights to go to meet up with a friend to ride his motorbike in the Dales. He said the owners were really friendly and welcoming, the room was very large, clean and comfortable with a well stocked hospitality tray. He said the breakfasts were very good with lovely fresh produce. He said... More

I have just returned from a one night trip away with my Mum and have to say that staying here made the trip what it was. From start to finish we were made to feel very welcome. The guest house is so beautiful; tastefully refurbished with modern fixtures but has kept lots of original elements such as the gorgeous floor... More

A super place to stay. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. The room we had was furnished with care and style; comfortable bed, nice duvet and quality sheets. Lovely breakfast room and we'll cooked food. Would certainly recommend!

Just stayed for one night in this beautiful bed and breakfast house. From the moment we walked through the door we were made to feel very welcome. The rooms are very tastefully decorated combining a modern touch in a very old extensively restored building. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and tidy. There was a plentiful breakfast that was well cooked. As... More

I stayed for a Wednesday night as I had business meeting the following morning. The guest house is just beautiful, tasteful modern touches blended with original old world charm. My bedroom was at the front, but extremely quiet, and was the perfect temperature. Tea and (decent) coffee making facilities, as well as lovely chocolate bars! My bed afforded me optimum... More

My friend and I stayed in room 4 on the day before we started the 38-mile Six Dales trail, which starts in Otley. We stayed again on the Friday night when we finished the walk. Helen and Tim were wonderful hosts, friendly, welcoming, helpful, sympathetic, everything we needed! Breakfasts were wonderful. We both appreciated the hot chocolate sachets in the... More

The bed was like floating on a cloud, so comfy. Delicious breakfast - love your Scrambled Eggs Tim.. I could go on and... More

I turned up unexpectedly (and I think in the middle of dinner) as I had locked myself out of my flat. Ridiculous. However Helen and Tim were kind enough to let a panic-eyed, baggage-less, pink-haired lady in. I was lucky that there had been a cancellation, but not having enough money on me to pay, Tim spoke to my Mum... More
