Stayed at this wonderful B and B for two nights. We had a lovely welcome from Tina who showed us to our room. We were in number 2 which is a twin room, really large bedroom with flat screen tv, tea and coffee making facilities and a small fridge with drinks in if you want them. There is also a long downstairs with a very quaint honesty bar! Our room was at the front of the building with a small but adequate en suite shower with sink and loo. Very comfortable twin beds. The wifi at the hotel was great, the breakfast was just the best ever! Wonderful stewed plums, home made granola, lovely coffee, fabulous local bacon and sausages! We actually didn't eat any lunch for two days!! There is a small car park at the rear of the building but cheap parking nearby if it is full. This place is just fantastic and I can't recommend it highly enough. Oh and if your Spanish, Tina speaks very impressive fluent Spanish! Great place and hope we have cause to go back there again.

Room Tip: Room two is right on the road but we were not kept awake by traffic noise. Lovely big room.

Girlie weekend for myself and sister. Got a call night before stay from Denise the owner asking for a rough time of arrival so she could be around. We went by train and it is an easy short walk of 10 mins to the B&B.
Greeted by Denise who showed us around, explained the honesty bar in the lounge. We could see straightaway what a lovely property it was.
Our room was number 1 which is a superior room. The room was massive. Lovely twin beds with lovely bedding on them. Nicely decorated, huge wardrobes and even a mini bar which was actually a fridge with various drinks in. Denise explained if you use any just let them know when you check out. There was also tea including herbal ones, coffee a kettle and biscuits. A really good size TV, a Chaise Longe. Bathroom was also a good size with lovely massive shower.
Denise showed us on the map where the good eating places were and there are several pubs and restaurants a short walk away.
Denise asked what time we liked breakfast because the B&B was quite full and obviously she didn't want everyone down for breakfast at once. Breakfast was really good with cereals, fruits, homemade museli and a really good menu with muffins, full breakfast, smoked salmon and all sorts. All cooked fresh.
We both slept really well and not troubled by noise etc.
I cannot stress enough how wonderful this place is , we loved our stay and were wowed by it. We would definately stay again.

Room Tip: Room 1 is excellent

Having been completely let down by another establishment in Harrogate we firmly believe that things happen for a reason as we arrived in Knaresborough with nowhere to stay and 5 and a half hours away from home, so we needed to find somewhere. We drove past Newton House and pulled in to the next side street to ring them to see if they had an available room for the.night. We were delighted when we got the only available room. It was a very big room and very clean and comfortable. The very squeaky floorboards were my only bugbear as they creaked with every step we took in our room. However, the breakfast was honestly the best breakfast I have ever had. Baked plums with cinnamon was an option we could help ourselves to in the morning. Heavenly! The girls that served us were very sweet and friendly and the owner did all her own cooking, which was quite something with a full hotel of guests. The information in the room made very interesting reading too. It was easy to see why she'd won '4 In A Bed' a couple of years ago. Knaresborough itself is quite charming and beautiful. The views from the castle were stunning overlooking the river and The Riverside. Mother Shiptons Well is well worth a visit and the Riverside Walk is a beautiful place to sit and have lunch.

I nearly didn't book to go here mainly because of the comments about the unfriendly staff. I am glad I ignored such reviews. The b&b is wonderful and Denise the owner went out of her way to be friendly and helpful when we arrived. She strikes me as the sort of person who runs a tight ship and won't put up with any nonsense, which I feel is how a good hotelier should be and I really respect her for that. Denise clearly wants to provide an excellent experience for all of her guests to enjoy, this is apparent in all aspects of the place, a lot of care and effort has gone in to every detail.

We were asked to specify a breakfast time and she made it clear that we needed to stick to that time. The breakfast was outstanding and the menu had a lot of choice. The dining room is small and in order to provide such a delicious breakfast to every guest, in a timely manner, guests really do need to be on time, I am disappointed that this 'nothing but the best' attitude is seen as being rude.

The hotel is quirky and charming. The location is good it's near the train station and local amenities.The building itself is beautiful. It is immaculate in terms of cleanliness. The housekeeping staff and waitresses are very friendly and pleasant. If you want to have a great, top class experience and not just somewhere to sleep this is the b&b for you.

I will say we were right at the top and the stairs were steep, we're young and fit so it was fine but if you struggle with stairs/walking make sure you mention that when you book.

I would have liked to give this B&B a better rating but was given such a frosty welcome I can't! The room was spacious, with a huge comfy bed and lovely linen, very clean with good toiletries, although the shower was very poor. The breakfast was excellent and really tasty.
We arrived about midday and we weren't bothered about our room being ready, we just wanted to drop our bags off. We were made to feel as if we were intruding and as if we were a massive inconvenience and how dare we turn up early! We then came back at the allotted time and our room still wasn't ready. Denise did suggest restaurants and places to go at this point, but it all felt a bit insincere. A shame really as it is a lovely B&B (although a tad on the pricey side). Not sure I'd stay here again.
