“Dowgill the place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

stayed december 2013
excellent location in otley
you can park car up and are within easy reach of shops places to eat etc
if you dont want to drive local transport to larger town of Harrogate etc
Dowgill is lovely excellent room space (stayed in room 1)
slept well first night which i dont normally
excellent hosts
breakfast is well presented and more than enough choice for anyone who visits
there is a garden to rear i think this b&b would suit families couples friends or lone travellers
enjoy we did

Lovely building, very clean and beautifully decorated. We were going out in Otley for the night and this B&B was literally a few hundred yards from where we were going. Comfy bed, good breakfast, would use again!

We booked all four rooms out for my partners 40th Birthday. All members of our party thoroughly enjoyed their stay and would highly recommend it. The hosts Tim and Helen were very friendly and helpful. My partner was very touched with his bottle of beer he was given as a birthday gift from them. We stayed in room 1 which was very spacious and had a very big comfy bed. It's a shame we could only stay for one night as we could have easily stayed for another night.

Stayed one night for a meeting with old friends near Harrogate.
Room very clean, well appointed, comfortable and quiet (room 2). Supplied with ample tea, coffee, biscuits, toiletries etc.. Good breakfast with plenty of choice and locally sourced food.

Stayed at Dowgill for the first time after finding it on the internet. What a lovely couple Helen and Tim are. They make you feel welcome from the start. We were shown to our room which was lovely, nice sized bathroom and both were lovely and clean.

The breakfast service was excellent and Tim plays an excellent front of house. Food was perfectly cooked.

We would happily stay again and would recommend to anyone.

Stayed here twice, once for business and again soon after for pleasure. Business trip excellent hosts, fabulous building, great breakfast. Had a room at the rear slept well very quiet. Had very little time to look at town but seemed nice, ukulele band practising outside opposite b&b fantastic!
They actually cater for young children my son was 18 months at the time. We had a larger room at the front extremely comfortable and quiet slept well and again hosts, breakfast great. Had time to have a look around a really nice town. As I said cant praise it high enough.
