“Breakfasting brilliance”

Superb weekend at millgate house. Excellent welcome, superb facilities, excellent attention to detail and great recommendations for local attractions.
The breakfast is sublime - from freshly baked artisan bread to local produce to daily specials all cooked to order.

Dear Nic and Oli
Thank you for your amazing review. You have kindly highlighted everything at Millgate B&B that you loved and we are both very grateful.

We are particularly proud of the "Sublime" accolade for breakfast. We really enjoy thinking of different Breakfast specials and take care to use only the best locally sourced ingredients for our Award winning breakfasts and the freshly baked rolls we serve to guests each morning.

Do come back again soon as there are so many wonderful walks in the area for you to try.

Kindest regards
Sue & Andrew Burrell

When I am benign dictator of the British Isles one of my first decrees will be that all staff intending to work in the hospitality industry must spend two nights at Mill Gate B&B so as to properly understand what is meant by customer service.

As promised by other reviewers, hot scones on arrival, fresh baked bread for breakfast. Spotlessly clean. In addition to all this Sue and Andrew revived us when we returned wet and muddy having been beaten by the Yorkshire weather and taken an accidental dip in a stream whilst out walking.

Maintaining this level of service cannot be easy. Sue and Andrew deserve a medal. Oh... hang on... I think Tripadvisor already gave them one! It is well deserved.

Dear Sekret-skwirrel

What an interesting proposition. Thank you .

You certainly have the right personality for a benign dictator being warm-hearted and amiable. Your good-humoured review of Millgate B&B is very generous and we would love to have a thoughtful and gracious leader like you in charge. We love it when guests have enjoyed all that we have to offer.

Please visit again soon as there is so much more for you to see and do around lovely Masham. Maybe it could be your Summer Residence after the revolution!

Everything about our stay in Millgate was perfect....apart from the weather, but we can't hold our perfect hosts, Sue and Andrew, responsible for that!! We had a lovely warm welcome on Friday afternoon with delicious home-made scones. Our bedroom, the Millgate, was beautifully decorated and very warm, cosy and quiet. The breakfast on both mornings was outstanding - the specials were great (Mark had the mushroom and cheese omelette and I had the American pancakes.) The mixed fresh fruit was a particular favourite of mine. We took the leftover home-baked rolls on our walk - delicious! (In fact, Sue filled them with cheese and marmalade which was even nicer!) Sue and Andrew really do run one of the best B&Bs in the world - we can vouch for that and we'll be back. Thank you for a lovely stay :-)

Room Tip: We were in the Millgate which is a big, lovely room and a very nice shower in the bathroom. Next tim...

Dear KatieScarlettLeeds

How wonderful that you had the full 5 blob experience at Millgate B&B. (For the uninitiated that means 5 stars on Tripadvisor!). You were such fun and we are thrilled that you had such a splendid time.

It was nice for us to share the experience of celebrating our Tripadvisor Travellers Choice Award 2014 - TOP 10 B&B's AND INNS IN THE WORLD.

You comments about the scones and breakfasts were really appreciated. I will make sure you get the Masham double en suite with the big bath next time you book with us. Feedback from our guests is really important to us and your feedback was lovely.

Hope to see you both again very soon.
Best wishes

Myself and my husband stayed here on the night of 21st January 2014.......and what a time to arrive. Sue and Andrew were very excited and celebrating their Trip Advisor Award, No 9 in the World Bed and Breakfast category, another award to add to their growing list. Sue and Andrew gave us a lovely welcome into their home. Fresh scones tea and coffee were ready for our arrival, they were delicious. We stayed in the Millgate Double room and it was beautifully furbished. The shower room is excellent, we loved the shower. The bed is pure luxury, we slept soundly and comfortably all night. The breakfast was beautifully laid out, lots of choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, toast and freshly made, warm from the oven, HOMEMADE BREAD, ours were honey, walnut and fig rolls, absolutely delicious. We decided to have the Award winning Yorkshire breakfast and it is lovely. Sue and Andrew said that Calendar TV were coming to film them and asked if we would give a guest review, we were happy to do this. Their B and B is a beautiful little gem, Sue and Andrew are wonderful hosts and we will definitely be returning. Thank you Sue and Andrew for your hospitality x

Room Tip: The Millgate Double is a fabulous room and the bed is so comfy.

Dear Tishwish
Thank you for your superb review of your brief but exciting stay at Millgate. Your comments were thoughtful and generous. So happy that you loved the brand new Millgate Double en suite. The bed is super comfy.

Who'd have thought that you would end up as a TV star being interviewed on camera about your first visit to Millgate B&B?

When you arrived, Andrew and I had only just found out that we were winners of Tripadvisors TOP 10 B&B's and INNS IN THE WORLD, EUROPE AND THE UK.

Thank you for staying to film your interview with Yorkshire TV. You are a natural star. The programme was seen in at least 4 regions in the North of England so you are really famous. We were delighted to share the celebrations with you both.

Next time you visit we will impose a media ban so that you can enjoy the peace and quiet.

Our all love and best wishes

Was bought a trip to this B and B as a gift for my birthday, with a ticket to the black sheep brewery. I write this review with some hesitation, not because of any faults but dont want too many people to discover it!!
On arrival we received a very warm welcome from the hosts and shown to our beautiful room and presented with our welcome scones.
The room was immaculately decorated, spotlessly clean and very spacious and comfortable. The bed was soft but very comfortable, we had a great nights sleep which is unusual for us.
The bathroom was also spotless and had a large, powerful shower.
The breakfast was delicious, and one of the best breakfasts we have had. The home made bread was accompanied by the choice of fruit, yoghurts, cereals, fruit juice and full "yorkshire" breakfast. I thoroughly recommend the full breakfast, the local butchers provide some lovely sausage and bacon and it is all cooked to perfection. The option of filter coffee rather than instant was a great start to the day.
Following breakfast we chatted with our hosts and were provided with some choices of local walks to do to walk off our calories and Sue kindly gave us some home made bread to take with us.
The accomodation , food and hospitality provided by Sue and Andrew is second to none, but dont tell too many people!!

Dear Scarboroughtraveller

Well the cat is well and truly out of the bag. After reading your review visitors know all about the great facilities: the new Millgate room, the comfy bed, the powerful new Burlington shower, the complimentary scones and the locally sourced breakfasts and they have you to thank.

Thank you for this marvellous review. We are thrilled that we made a good impression and that your present was such a success.

Hopefully we shall be able to welcome you back to Masham soon. You have yet to visit Theakston's Brewery and maybe you would enjoy a walk through the breathtakingly beautiful Hackfall Woods.

All our best wishes to a lovely couple

We stayed last weekend and found the accommodation, food and hospitality to be of a very high standard. Lovely large bedroom with period décor; snug and warm too. The shower room was excellent with large shower and good lighting. Sue and Andrew are wonderful hosts and create a hearty Yorkshire breakfast with the all important home-made bread (plus scones on arrival).

Thank you for your review. Your comments about the very high standards for our accommodation, food and hospitality and the excellent brand new shower room were very much appreciated.

Our brand new Millgate Superior Double with it's fabulous king sized bed has been a huge success and your feedback about the space and comfort of the room were lovely.

We are pleased that you highlighted the scones, the home-made bread and the Award Winning Breakfasts and hope that you enjoyed your stay as much as we enjoyed having you both.
