“What a treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2008

Can’t say enough good things about Newton House! My husband and I stayed three nights and couldn’t have been more pleased. Owners Mark and Lisa made us feel welcome the minute we arrived and our large room was nicely decorated and very comfortable. Supplied with plush linens and Molton Brown toiletries, the room also contained a digital radio/clock, flat screen television, assorted teas, coffee and a fully-stocked mini-bar. Internet service available as well. The rest of this charming guest house is just as inviting from the main lounge to the lovely dining room. Here we enjoyed an excellent selection of breakfast offerings including the best full English breakfast. All made to order. Oh, and make sure to try Lisa’s homemade marmalade. Not to be missed! Top notch staff - thanks to both Stella and Tom for making our stay special. Oh, and to Cassie the house dog, too. I loved our daily game of fetch. Kudos to Mark and Lisa for hiring such quality staff and for making this a most pleasurable stay.

We decided to have a night away with our beloved labradoor and loved Newton House. I'm used to 5 star hotels in my work but this was a real home from home gem. We had a self contained room at the back as we had the dog..but nothing was too much effort. After a late night on the lash we were late for breakfast and I'm so glad we made it as it was one of the best ones I've ever had. Lisa was a very good host and I would highly recommend staying.

Mark and Lisa gave us a very warm welcome to their delightful guest house, which we stumbled across when the A1 was shut north, halting our journey.
The room (with 4 poster bed) was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The bathroom was bright, airy and exceptionally clean (my only moan was the inconsistency of the hot water when showering).
The owners have obviously thought through every detail, great selection of Molten Brown toiletries, plenty of fluffy towels, games and books in the rooms, DAB radio, free wi-fi, and the best value mini-bar I have ever come across.
Breakfast was delicious, so much to choose from and all cooked to order - I can highly recommend the porridge with whisky soaked sultanas - a great way to start the day!
Sadly our visit was a rushed one, but we will certainly be back soon.

My husband and I spent a short one night stay and it made a lasting impression on us both.
We were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary and found the initial welcome of the staff both courteous and friendly.
Our room was warm ,spotless ,spacious and the decor sensitive. with all Mod. Cons.
The ensuite bathroom had lovely fluffy towels and numerous toietries to choose from
The main lounge was comfortable with a selection of books, games, a selection of daily newspapers and a well stocked barand a piano,
The dining room inviting, with white linen tablecloths and serviettes. The breakfast was tremendous, with a seletion of Cereals, fresh fruit salad, grapefruit, prunes, Yogurts, nuts, raisins,
sveral fruit juices. the Hot menu was vast and everything was cooked to order.
This Hotel deseves all the accolades it gets and is suitable for families, singles, couples and Businessmen, facilities are available for businessmen with internet facilities..It is also dog friendly.
Well done Newton House and proprieters Lisa and Mark Wilson.
Thank you for a short but sweet stay.

If you want to feel welcome, receive quality service and a breakfast any five star hotel would find hard to match then this is the place for you. Molten Brown toiletries quality linen etc. coupled with friendly hosts and staff made our stay in Yorkshire most pleasurable. Newton House is situated on the main road through Knaresbourough but has been tastefully decorated inside to a high standard and is currently going through a period of upgrading to digital TV, but each room has a digital radio and a mini bar with the cheapest prices I have ever seen. The choice for breakfast was oustanding from continental to poached haddock, home made jam and marmalade, fresh fruit and a variety of cereals, nuts & dates and so on. Thank you Mark and Lisa we shall return on our next trip up North.

We spent one night in this centrally positioned guest house. The 4 poster room was extremely clean, cosy and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding-probably the best I've ever had in a guest house. Staff were welcoming and courteous at all times.

Newton House sells itself as a guest house but we found the services to be as good as most hotels.

The guesthouse is run by a husband and wife team who are very welcoming. The Guesthouse has been all redecorated tastefully, is immaculatly clean and most important of all very comfy. There was the added bonus of Molton Brown toilleteris too.

Parking was available at the rear of the hotel. Save room for the breakfast which is made fresh to order and included in the price.

Lovely little guesthouse and worth paying the slightly high prices for
