Apparently this was first refurbished in 2008. We visited in March 2011 and then again last week. Everything looks like it is brand new. Very tastefully updated 18th century building in fantastic location at centre of Otley. Public rooms have numerous little artifacts referring to the house's historical origins. Bedrooms are spacious and decorated in sympathetic modern styles and with... More

I was in Otley as a trip down memory lane and I wished to stay there for two nights. I found Dowgill House on the internet and booked a room from South Africa. The owners made it clear that this was an owner run establishment without full reception cover, so I needed to give an indication of arrival time and... More

Returned again after 2 year break - we have been unable to visit several times as they had no rooms available! The phrase which sums up Dowgill House really is 'a home from home'. Well equipped and presented rooms, very comfortable beds, good food at breakfast time plus all mods such as wifi, freeview tv in a small [4 rooms]... More

The owing couple were very helpful, pleasant and most attentive to detail - checking understanding with all aspects of any concern. The accommodation although very much in keeping with the age...

This place is a home from home more than a b&b. The owners who live on the top floor were very friendly and were happy to help with anything. The rooms are lovely and comfortable, with proper tea/coffee and kettle. Exceptionally clean, could not fault anything. The breakfast is amazing, cooked to your liking with local produce. Parking is outside... More

A lovely B&B in a central location. The hosts were very welcoming, friendly and attentive. It is a lovely house, very clean and bright. There was a guest lounge and a nice breakfast room and the breakfast was very good. Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable it was at the front of the hotel but it wasn't noisy....
