New Laithe House
Ranked #20 of 20 Grassington B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 August 2011

We have just returned from New Laithe House. The room was clean although we had to ask for another set of towels as there was only sufficent for one guest. The room was cold when we arived at 2:30pm. Our room was near the noisy central heating boiler and the room walls were so thin you can hear other guests including their 'toilet activities'. Not the most pleasant of experiences!!!!! Plenty of parking and very close to the centre of the village. However, the Landlady did not always present a welcoming and warm approach to her guests. She appeared obsessed with the handing back of the room keys and made little if any effort towards small talk or conversation. The breakfast was very contrived as was the 'strict' seating arrangements. The choice of cereals and condiments were limited although that said, the cooked breakfast itself was nice. All in all, not a B&B representative of a four star award and certainly not value for money at £75.00 per double room per night. Shop around!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing trip to Grassington. Our stay at New Laithe House was faultless. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The room was nice and spacious and very clean. The owners are very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was tasty and plentiful. This is our third visit as a couple to Grassington and our first stay at New Laithe House and it was by far our best choice of accommodation and definitely where we will still on our next visit. We can guarantee you will not be disappointed, whether you are staying as a couple or with children.

We have just spent another 5 days at New Laithe (we visited this time last year).

As before, we found this guest house the ideal base for our holiday in the Yorkshire Dales. The view from our room was stunning with uninterrupted views over the Wharfe valley – a view that we became accustomed to last year, hence we asked for the same room this year).

Being in our mid-40’s, we appreciate home cooking and home comforts and that’s what we received at this guest house. The room was light and airy and the cleanliness superb as were the breakfastrs which were the ideal start for a days walking!

The owners of the guest house were also most accommodating – giving us some suggested routes for walks with maps and offering some books of the local area so that we could read up about the best places to visit.

The only downside to our stay this year was from an obnoxious woman who was attending a wedding in the area. She appeared to complain about everything and made many of the other guests feel uncomfortable during breakfast (quite probably the previous reviewer) .

Overall we would highly recommend this guest house for anyone that wants to escape the rat race but not for raucous wedding guests who would be better off staying in Manchester.

The room size, cleanliness and location were ok if over priced, however the main reason for our negative review is the appalling level of service.

The landlady was pushy and controlling and upon discovering we were in the area for a wedding, made it very clear to us that we were not welcome in her B+B. This made for a very uncomfortable atmosphere during our two day stay, and we were both very glad to pay up and escape as early as possible on the final day.

This said, Grassington is a lovely little village in the heart of the national park with many nice pubs and friendly cafes- definitely work a visit. Do shop around for your B+B though!

A perfect place to stay for my wife and me while attending the Grassington festival. Good full English breakfast. Friendly hosts. Highly recommended. They even liked the Hollies, the group we went to see in the evening. And the box office staff at the festival were gorgeous too.

I have just stayed at New Laithe House and cannot fault it. It is 2 mins from the village square - close to all the pubs and restaurants.

It has plenty of car parking, the rooms were extremly clean and also spacious.

The breakfast was fantastic - especially the fried eggs!

I would highly recommend it.

I stayed in this large guest house for two nights, the twin room although only occupied by me, would also be plenty roomy enough for two. It was beautifully decorated, had sufficient storage space and an ensuite shower and basin. The toilet was situated just outside the room. The whole house was immaculately clean and tidy.

Breakfast was served in a small dining room upstairs, quaintly furnished similar to a tea room, although not able to help yourself to cereals etc as is the norm, all that you could possibly want was provided on the breakfast menu and your order taken at the table. Extra toast and tea/coffee was always offered.

New Laithe House is perfectly situated as the centre of Grassington is a five minute walk away and has the added bonus of private parking.
