“Wonderful Stay at an excellent price!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Stayed here 1 night, we were en route to Scotland at the time, but contemplated forgetting Scotland and staying here again! Absolutely amazing house, with a staff to match. We enjoyed ourselves so much, from the neatly decorated rooms, to the traditional english breakfast, we plan to come back again in the spring, and this time bring our kiddos with us. Couldn't speak more highly of this facility, as well as the staff. We arrived later than expected and they stayed up waiting to greet us upon our arrival. Love love LOVED our stay here.

My husband, I and 2 friends stayed at Bank Villa for one night. One word.....Outstanding! Everything about this place was amazing......the welcome, the rooms, the facilities, the owners, the food etc etc etc...need I go on!
We were all made to feel like friends not customers and NOTHING was too much trouble. You wanted or needed anything, you asked...you got! My husband and I had the most amazing nights sleep....the best we have ever had away from our own bed. The house is located within 1 minutes walk from the Market square and 2 minutes from the Theakstons and Black Sheep Breweries. I cannot praise Graham and Liz enough for the wonderful experience they offer in their home. The cleanliness was a cut above the rest, as was EVERYTHING;....I'm not sure anyone else would get close.... ! The standard of the whole stay was 5* no less. I would say 'why consider the rest, when you've found the best?'
A massive thank you from us for a wonderful, warm stay. We WILL be back....for many years to come.....we wish you both massive success for the future...you deserve no less x

Room Tip: I wouldn't worry about choosing which room.....the high standard we found would be in all rooms...

Graham and Liz were wonderful hosts. We booked a room as a half-way stop to Scotland. We gave an estimate on the time of our arrival and carried the phone number with us. As traveling goes, we took a little longer to get there and called to keep them posted. We arrived late in the evening and they were waiting for us. We asked advise on where to get a pint and snack and they gave us several local options. We came back and climbed into a comfortable bed. Our room was on the third floor and if you want help with your luggage, they can help. It had a double bed, sink and shower. We knew in advance that the toilet was just outside the room just for us, and we were fine with that. Our friends got a room across the hall that had it all in the room. It also had tea/coffee and a delightful welcome bag. Breakfast was from 7-8 and the dining room was beautifully set. Continental items, fruit and tea were out and we were given a menu to choose the cooked meal. I had the full English breakfast and it was perfect. My friend had the salmon eggs and it was wonderful as well. Fresh flowers in several places was just an example of their attention to every detail. Everything was immaculate, the grounds, conservatory, everything! We visited the Theakstons Brewery the next day which is great local beer. I plan to go back and stay with them again but I will plan extra time to see the village Masham and more of the pubs. There is a difference between a hotel and a B&B. If you would love to stay in a Georgian home hosted by two wonderful people, stay there. If you want a cold welcome at a chain hotel, go somewhere else.
Thank you Liz and Graham for a memorable stay!!!!

This B & B exceeded all expectations regarding location, (between two breweries). The hosts Graham and Elizabeth could not do enough for their guests - another cup of tea or and extra portion at breakfast was yours upon asking. They were warm and friendly but never intrusive. The B & B was a large Georgian home with magnificent gardens to the rear to relax in. The room itself was clean and warm and the little touches we're so welcome as we arrived late (biscuits and tea maker in room). This B & B was great value for money and we all said we would definitely return.

Bank Villa is a welcoming & very impressive B&B. The rooms we had were really comfortable and stylish. Every detail had been thought of and the little extras were very nice (I particularly appreciated the February edition of a high quality magazine!). The addition of WiFi was excellent, especially for our teenagers.

Every room and area was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was absolutely delicious.

We went to a wedding at Swinton Park and the complementary lift to the venue was very helpful.

In short, nothing was too much trouble for Liz and Graham and they made our weekend a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing one.

We enjoyed our two night stay, especially the full English breakfast or smoked salmon and scrambled egg. The B and B is a stone throw from black sheep brewery and there are great restaurants a short walk away. Clean and well kept accommodation.
