Oast Guest House
Ranked #14 of 22 Settle B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 April 2013

The home made food was outstanding at this unassuming B and B. Don't be put off by the rusting sign. It is much better than it looks from the outside. I have never had a nicer breakfast or one with as much input from the owner in terms of making it herself - muffins, smoothie, many different jams, as well as fresh fruit salads and dried fruit salads and a good choice of cooked breakfasts. There were even fresh home made cakes on arrival. A quiet room with very comfortable twin beds. This B and B deserves its "best breakfast" award.

Thank you for your kind review. It is very complimentary to know that Helen's hard work is appreciated.
You have however, caused me a slight dilemma in that should I sort out the rusty sign or leave it as a beacon to 'all that glitters is not gold'.
Thank you once again for your kind words

Martyn

My wife and I stayed for one night on the 6th of October. We found our twin room with en-suite shower to be clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities available free in the lounge on our arrival. We enjoyed a nice cooked breakfast with loads of toast and tea next morning. We were visiting Settle for a family get together and the Guest House was ideal. We shall certainly be staying again.

Initially planning a 3 night stay to walk the Dales we met the worst September rain for 100 years and so cut short our visit.
Fine room (No 5), well appointed and the lounge facilities were great.
Great breakfast and helpful friendly advice.

Nice B&B on the Way of the Roses route. Great cakes on arrival and very good breakfasts. Fairly accommodating for cyclists. Owners try hard to accommodate requests. Could do with covered area to store bikes.

Thank you for your review regarding your stay on the Way of the Roses cycle route.
We are pleased that you enjoyed the cakes and breakfast but still struggle with the concept of covered bike storage. Where would you like us to site the covered storage unit? - any ideas would be appreciated. We have tried to accommodate cyclists as best as space allows.
Once again thank you for your review.

We stopped at the Oast Guest House the night before doing the Yorkshire Dales 3 peaks and would certainly return. We felt very welcomed by Martyn, who also gave us some excellent recommendations for places to eat in Settle - the food at the Talbot Arms was perfect. As we were leaving very early Martyn made some breakfast and muffins available for us to help ourselves, which was much appreciated for our arduous day ahead. We stopped in room 2 and found it very clean with a large comfy bed, the ensuite was also cleaned to a high standard, only issue we had was the hot/cold shower but still it did the job! Thank you Martyn and Helen.

Enjoyed a very nice stay here and was recommended a good place to eat in the evening. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was simply excellent. However, we were only informed that breakfast was from 8.00 am. We would have actually preferred it earlier but it wan't a great problem. But later we found out that the other guests who also wanted an earlier breakfast were told they couldn't have it because it would conflict with other guests. Now forgive me if I'm wrong, but I thought it would be the duty of a guesthouse owner to try and cater for the wishes of all/the majority of the guests? It seems to me that the majority of people in the guesthouse would have preferred an earlier breakfast if it had been offered.

I was also surprised that the 'secure bike storage' involved chaining the bikes up outside under a plastic sheet. I live in a much smaller village than Settle and given that our bikes are worth over 3k I would not normally consider leaving them outside, even in a rural area. As it was, they were fine, but in the next three stops the 'secure bike storage' did actually involve being locked away inside. We weren't given the option on this.

So, an excellent place to stop, very comfortable and a great breakfast but more flexibility/transparency is needed over breakfast times and fine if you're happy with your bike outside.

Thank you for your review it is much appreciated. we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, even if the timing of breakfast was not to your liking. However, i would just point out that you did not request an early or earlier breakfast. I agree that owners should cater for the needs of the customers but customers are supposed to inform of needs. As previously mentioned B&Bs tend not to have any staff, particularly non floating around from silly o'clock which is why we offer cold breakfast to walkers doing the Three Peaks and don't do cooked food before 7am. Cyclists, on the whole, seem to find that breakfast at 8am is early enough if they are doing the Way of the Roses and their next stopover is in Pateley Bridge or Ripon. In response to your comments we have, however, amended and clarified the Welcome Letter.

Secondly, I, unfortunately, do not recall there being an issue or any concerns raised about securing your 3k bike but if you had said something we could have brought it inside. Once again my knowledge of bike identification and telepathic powers let me down and for that I can only apologise.

Once again thank you for your review and we are pleased that you overall enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully in the future we may have the opportunity of welcoming you again.
Regards
Martyn

We stayed here while on the Way of the Roses cycle route. The room was comfortable and the en-suite was very tidy. We really liked the bowl of fruit in the bedroom and the tray of tea and home-made cake in the residents' room. The breakfast choice was really, really nice (even kippers!) and they were displaying an award for the breakfast menu for 2012. We were told that brekkie was available from 8-9am so we chose 8am, however, the blurb in the room said that brekkie was actually available from 7.30 which TBH would have suited us better.

The bed was really comfortable.

I was assured beforehand that "secure cycle storage" was available but it turned out to be just bikes chained up in the back yard with a plastic sheet over them. This, however, was the only minus point and the steeds were OK the next morning.

Thank you for your review it is much appreciated. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the breakfast selections on offer. In response to your comment about breakfast times there has to be a degree of flexibility in relation to the other needs of the Guest House.

In relation to the 'safe storage' of cycles I am slightly confused. Perhaps I am mistaken but I assumed that being attached to a great wall with a chain, out of view, was secure. I hadn't realised that in the depths of the urban metropolis of Settle there was a crime wave of missing bikes, [ although we do have some cyclists who wish that they would disappear overnight]. Some people in Settle don't even lock cars let alone bikes!!

As it happens we do have a small storage area inside the House [big enough for two bikes] but once again nothing was said and my telepathic powers had run out of batteries that day. Out of all the cyclists who have stayed with us you are the first that have 'worried about safe storage'.

Once again thank you for your kind review it is much appreciated - Martyn
