Trip to Knaresborough

Lovely hotel.

Denise the proprietor was hugely welcoming and she went to great lengths to make us very comfortable. We especially loved the big soft bed which was wonderful.

Denise and her staff very welcoming and helpful. Homemade fruit compote yummy! Thank you.

Denise and her staff are very welcoming and helpful.

This is a lovely old building which is tastefully decorated with fresh flowers in the communal areas and the underlying perfume of beeswax polish. The toiletries provided were by Arran aromatics, a welcome change from those ubiquitous little sachets found in most B and B's

Homemade fruit compote for breakfast was yummy. Thank you.

A gem in Knaresborough

It was worth staying at Newton House just for the breakfast, which was delicious and reminded me what a good English breakfast was.

Everyone was really friendly and made my stay extremely comfortable. Would definitely stay there again.

A breath of fresh air

A very welcoming hotel, room was beyond my expectations, and breakfast was superb.

the only downside to this hotel is possibly the parking.

Room Comments

We were in room 8 which was very nice lovely extras and facilities but it would have been nicer if the shower room had been heated for this time of the year.

A very comfortable stay

Everything was just fine.

We stayed in a stable room which was convenient for the car and coming and going. It was of little importance to us but the wifi signal did not appear to reach this room. The car parking was a little tight but we got a prime spot and didn't move. These points are not moans just observations. Will come again we hope.

Response from hotel

I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay at Newton House. You were upgraded from a Standard Double room to a Superior Double room - with a lot more space, and a much bigger bed. All our guests are advised on arrival how to contact me via the internal telephone system and asked to bring any problems to our attention straight away. It would have been helpful if you had advised me of the problem with the Wi-Fi as I could have checked it at the time. The signal does sometimes fluctuate, but I can confirm it is working noa choice of on-street parking, and a long stay public car park (free overnight and only £1.60 for the whole day), just one-minute's drive away.

Newton House

Very comfortable 2 night stay , excellent central situation in Knaresborough and very convenient for the bus into Harrogate.

Lovely warm room to return to on a dark cold winters night. Good breakfast selection and very friendly helpful staff.

Hotel and la patronne have a gravitational pull

Excellent B&B with every possible facility (and beyond) one could imagine for this type of accommodation, especially old fashioned and now unfortunately rare idiosyncracies like an "honesty bar".

Breakfast was far better than many I've had in Michelin starred establishments.

I normally stay in homogenous, faceless 3-5 star Hotels. Newton House was a refreshing, nay, mind blowing change from the corporate, souless ubiquity of large/chain hotels, but the real Jewel in the Crown is Denise, the owner; a magnificent tour de force who runs the establishment with aplomb and a personal, knowledgable touch. How many B&B's have a concierge. More than just a bed - excellent.

Response from hotel

Wow - thank you so much for such a great review. Do come and see us again - as long as you are still alive after eating all those wild mushrooms! Do be careful . . .

Perfect stay!

We had a wonderful night's stay at Newton House.

Denise was kindly and welcoming. There is a lovely home from home feel and everything was done to make us comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the dining room laid out beautifully. It was super to have a drawing room to relax in. So many thoughtful extras- fresh milk in the fridge in our bedroom for example. Thank you Newton House!
