I stayed one night and the room did everything I needed it to. It provide a very spacious and comfortable environment and a bed that was a delight to sleep in. My room was on the main road which was noisy, it was a warm night and I needed the windows open. I am sure that if I had asked,... More

We stayed over the previous weekend and were met by the proprietor (Tim) who booked us in, took our breakfast order and helped with a local restaurant. The room had just about every extra you would need, I.e. cotton buds, bath robes, tooth brushes etc. A bit of road noise (I chose this hotel for closeness to A1 so absolutely... More

What can I say this guest house and owners are fantastic. I was quite a difficult customer but all of needs where looked after with great attention and detail. Breakfast selection and the Yorkshire breakfast was very fresh and lovely. Well done and keep up good work we will be back to stay!!!

Probably the best guest house/b&b Iv ever stayed in. Me and my friend were having a day at the races and decided to stay at the Tower House. Booking in is from 5pm but we arrived earlier in the morning and was greeted by the owner. We realised we were early but the owner couldn't have been more helpful, she... More

We booked this B&B on the reviews posted. Sadly it was somewhat underwhelming. On arrival we were met by a rather disengaged and somewhat unhappy host. We were taken to our room which was very nice in terms of decor and cleanliness. The down side was that the heating was off, so given it had been snowing and sub zero... More

We were very happy with our 5 night stay at this B&B. The accommodation was clean, spacious and comfortable with pleasing décor. We enjoyed a delicious cooked breakfast each morning and there was a wide selection of cereal, fresh fruit, meats & cheese on the buffet bar. Juice, coffee or tea completed the meal. The owners were friendly and attentive.... More

Although parking can be a little tricky and there is some road noise in the front hotel rooms this is still a very attractive place to stay with friendly staff, first class amenities and great breakfast!

Many thanks for your review, with the heating being off for the summer months the towel rail just needed a little tweak to bring it back into action so it was easy remedied, thank you for pointing it out, On occasions some guests don't always notify us at the time of any problems but then complain on a review site...
