Lovely building, very clean and beautifully decorated. We were going out in Otley for the night and this B&B was literally a few hundred yards from where we were going. Comfy bed, good breakfast, would use again!

We booked all four rooms out for my partners 40th Birthday. All members of our party thoroughly enjoyed their stay and would highly recommend it. The hosts Tim and Helen were very friendly and helpful. My partner was very touched with his bottle of beer he was given as a birthday gift from them. We stayed in room 1 which was very spacious and had a very big comfy bed. It's a shame we could only stay for one night as we could have easily stayed for another night.

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
