“Unsuspected stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We were booked in a hotel in Sowerby Bridge (The Hobbit with Dealcloud) When we arrived we were told that the hotel was under new management and the rooms were being re-furbished and wouldn't be ready for at least 6 weeks. It turned out the previous owner had done a runner before Xmas with the likes of my money. The new manager put us in contact with the Tower Hotel and the staff on arrival were excellent, polite, helpfull and understood our plight. We asked for 3 nights stay as we were carrying on to Bridlington to Ye Old Star Inn. Unfortunately they only had accommodation for 2 nights. Meanwhile we made enquiries by phone of the Old Star Inn to find no answer. We discussed this with the hotel and after a lot of enquiries they found a tripadvisor review from a person from South Shields saying the owner had done a runner. That changed our itinerary and we headed for home, but hope to go back to the Towers some day.The Hotel was spotless, the rooms and bed superb and the food out of this world. All the staff were excellent at their jobs and made our short stay a very memorable one.

Room Tip: From the quality and standards of the rooms no comments could be made except excellent

would like to say a big thank you to Rob , Nicola and all the staff at the Tower House Hotel , not only was the food fantastic it tasted amazing and was very plentiful. We were very pleased by the professionalism of all the staff , who were brilliant from start to finish, they were always helpful . As we live down south it was not easy to plan a wedding so far away, but we always had help on the end of the phone with our questions. Everything was amazing and all our guests were impressed with the evening bbq . would recommend this hotel, thanks again x x x x x

Reasonably priced hotel (except the 2.5% Amex charge!). Reception not always manned and hotel bar not open later for residents. Wifi does not work in the room. Clean and tidy with loads of very hot water

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.I am very sorry you had trouble with your free Wifi, new signal boosters are being installed to rectify any problems.Our modern hotel as been recently refubished and everthing is new so I am bemused at where you found anything outdated.In the bedrooms the beautiful wall paper matches the curtains and the runner, the colours are modern and lots of people ask for information where they can buy the wall paper so I think this is down to personal tastes. If you stay again maybe book the Royal suite which is in all neutral colours and very soothing.The Amex charge is not controlled by us, it is preset by the bank.Once again thank you.

I travel all over the u.k, and have stayed in many hotels, not one of them can match the standard of the Tower house. Rob the manager and his team of staff have a great attitude, nothing is to much trouble, they even cleared my vehicle of snow and made me a flask for the journey home. The food quality is spot on, freshly cooked to order, arrives steaming hot and well presented. rooms are spotless, well thought out with comfortable beds, nice en suite bathrooms too. The bar staff are always friendly and the beer is always cold. I will return again and again....treat yourself!!

Recently went to a wedding at this hotel and was amazed at what a wonderful day we had. The staff could not do enough for us and the whole hotel looked wonderful. Our room was lovely and the bed was really comfy. Every detail had been taken care of and we would highly recommend this to anyone either looking to book a wedding, a function or just staying in the area. Don't know how we have missed it being there but will definately be back. The inside of the hotel was beautifully presented and the outside had a lovely balance of modern and contemporary. Our neice said they made her feel like a queen. Well Done Tower House!
