My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and found everything to our satisfaction. Knaresborough is a lovely town in its own right and had a lively festival going on when we were there, but we used it mainly as a base for attending 3 Gilbert & Sullivan Festival events in the elegant town of Harrogate, just a 15-minute drive/bus ride away. Newton House is a very fine building, full of character. Denise gave us a warm welcome, though after a 240-mile drive we were far too tired to absorb the very comprehensive (over-long!) information about the area which she provided. Our large room on the first floor was excellent and contained many extras - fridge, flat-screen tv, DAB digital radio, very modern shower, settee, fan, variety of teas/coffees, fresh milk and many more. With double glazing the room was very quiet even though on the main road. Breakfasts were wonderful! There was an amazing variety of dishes on offer, and the menu made it clear that fresh products, locally sourced wherever possible, were a big priority. The staff who served us breakfast were all very pleasant indeed, and nothing was too much trouble. The dining room was a fraction small to serve 12 bedrooms, and there was an occasional short delay at peak times. The atmosphere here was much more akin to that of a guest house than a hotel ("Where are you off to today?" etc), which suited us. Denise appears very hard-working indeed and is clearly intent on making guests' experience a very special one. This won't be the cheapest hotel in the area, but we found the extra comfort, space, quality and service well worth a few extra pounds. This is a hotel we would definitely recommend to fellow travellers!
