Not one for giving bad reviews but we were let down by The Town House after the owner had double booked us. We we were unable to stay here despite putting down a deposit over the phone only two days earlier.

The location was great but cannot comment on anything else about the B & B as we never even entered the building!

The owner was very apologetic and sorted us out at a decent B & B around the corner.

We all make mistakes but it was still very disappointing to be turned away from somewhere where you thought you were booked into!

Just like to say thanks to Mick, he was a great host and very friendly, the room was very clean and tidy and was very comfortable. The breakfast was very nice and set us up for the day.

Will be staying again, and would recommend to anyone.

Thanks again Mick.

I was booked into the Unicorn but moved last minute due to an issue with the room. Must say that I'm glad as this was nice and quiet and very clean. The chap who owns and runs the business let me and gave me the welcome tour. For the money, can't fault it and would stay again.
Next morning the breakfast was cooked to order and again, great value for money.

Although not very pretty from the outside the Town House offered good value accommodation in a great location right near the main town centre and bus station. Great to find a guest house which still offers guests a room with a bath rather than just a shower and the TV with inbuilt DVD player was much appreciated too. Great breakfast and a friendly welcome - suited me just fine and sensibly priced too. Who could ask for more?

Room Tip: if you are tall avoid Room 2 which has a sloping ceiling.

Town House is right next to the bus station in Skipton and is ideally located for people like us who don't drive. We did get off to a slightly tricky start in that we arrived to find no one home and, having rung the owner's mobile number, found out he was driving home and would be about 15 minutes or so. It wouldn't have been too much of an issue except the were shivering in the icy and unseasonably snowy blasts of March in North Yorkshire and were not in great humour when he arrived. That said, we found a friendly welcome and a pleasant, bijou room up in the eaves, complete with dormer window and the distinct danger of concussion on the sloping ceiling for anyone taller than us - if you are a strapping six foot plus, do beware of room 5! The room itself was spotlessly clean and tidy and decorated in a simple but attractive way. it's a surprise to find an en suite bathroom with an actual bath in it these days, sadly the shower attachment is the same one we have at home and we know, to our cost, doesn't work well with low water pressure. If you love a soak in the bath instead, however, you will be very happy. We also couldn't get the fan heater in the bathroom to work though the light came on. maybe we had just not figured it out. in any case, it didn't especially matter as the room was not that cool. Although the house is in a yard behind a pub and club, we found we had a reasonably quiet night aside from a couple of cats having a scrap outside at about 2am! Not much one can do about that as cats don't respond to an ASBO. Breakfast was great and our host had made porridge at our request though we guessed from his surprised expression not many folk opt for it rather than the traditional cooked breakfast. We would certainly stay again. It's clean, quiet and sensibly priced. Those with a mobility problem would need to request a ground floor room as there are a lot of stairs.
