We travelled down from the Scottish Highlands at Easter for our best friends wedding in Otley. The sat nav ran out of battery just as we entered Otley so it took us a few circuits to find it but that was our fault not theirs! There was limited parking so had to park behind but seemed quiet enough and moved the car later. We had a really friendly greeting from the owners and they showed us up to our room. Beautifully decorated and high quality finish to everything. We had a room at the front which is good as I always like to look onto the street, and once the town went to bed it wasn't noisey at all.
Really nice touch of free muffins for guests on the landing which my husband gobbled quite happily. The room was really comfy and good information on where to eat etc in Otley. Unfortunatley every restaurant seemed to stop serving by about 8pm, but we found a great little chippie and had fish, chips and peas with a pot of tea so that kept us right! We had a nice walk in the town at night and relaxed before heading back to the guest house.
In the morning we awoke to Otley farmers market and before heading out had a fantastic cooked breakfast. I have a dietary requirements which they were only too happy to cater for and my husband loved the gooseberry jam! Our host chatted to us and sorted taxi numbers out for us.
They were quite happy for us to arrive back late after the wedding and again we had a really good nights sleep before another scrummy breakfast in the morning. Really friendly check out and if we ever had to go back to Otley we certainly stay again.
