“Excellent weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

Stayed at Dowgill for the first time after finding it on the internet. What a lovely couple Helen and Tim are. They make you feel welcome from the start. We were shown to our room which was lovely, nice sized bathroom and both were lovely and clean.

The breakfast service was excellent and Tim plays an excellent front of house. Food was perfectly cooked.

We would happily stay again and would recommend to anyone.

Stayed here twice, once for business and again soon after for pleasure. Business trip excellent hosts, fabulous building, great breakfast. Had a room at the rear slept well very quiet. Had very little time to look at town but seemed nice, ukulele band practising outside opposite b&b fantastic!
They actually cater for young children my son was 18 months at the time. We had a larger room at the front extremely comfortable and quiet slept well and again hosts, breakfast great. Had time to have a look around a really nice town. As I said cant praise it high enough.

I stayed for one night ( business ) and could have stayed for more. Hosts were really welcoming without being intrusive and what a fabulous building to be used as a B & B. Built in the 1700's but tastefully and sensitively decorated and furnished. My room was at the front of the building, plenty of space and the bed was very comfortable. If you are a light sleeper then I would suggest to book a room at the back, as there is the road to the front. On saying that it didn't disturb me, I had a good night's sleep. Good breakfast to start the day.
What a gem.

Room Tip: As mentioned if you are a light sleeper ask for room at the back

We stayed at dowgill house back in February. We were slightly nervous travelling with our four month old baby but Tim and Helen made us feel very welcome. Our room was huge and the bed massive and more comfortable than our own. Would definitely recommend as a base for exploring the beautiful surroundings.

We stayed at Dowgill House in April 2013 for 3 nights as we hoped it would be a good location for visiting the family in Leeds. We were warmly welcomed by Tim and Helen and found their charming historical home a pleasure to stay in. There was parking just outside the front door, free WiFi and a large comfortable room with modern ensuite. As we didn't want to drive and park in Leeds for a day around the town, the bus was only a few minutes walk from the front door. The room was clean and beautifully decorated and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a front room looking onto the street and found it quiet to sleep.

Dowgill House is the perfect base for exploring Otley and surrounding Wharfedale -- comfortable and elegant, with spacious, immaculate rooms and all the traditional charm of a historic town house. Real Yorkshire hospitality and sustaining English breakfasts too. A rare find.
