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

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

TV/Tea/coffee in the room is proper not out of a sachet, both really nice. comfy beds, crisp sheets & modern shower room. Breakfast is amazing!

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
