perfect stay

Perfect if your visiting Knaresborough, we had a 4 poster bed in a large room with a lovely modern spacious bathroom it was spotless clean too. Our friends room was very nice too. The lady on reception was nice and friendly too very helpful. Its a perfect location too only 5 minutes walk into centre. Take a walk along the river its lovely down there you can get a nice coffee too and take in the view. Its a great day/night out a few little shops to look in and around 12 very nice pubs, we sat outside the worlds end pub in the lovely beer garden in the blazing sun a couple of hours as recommended by the girl on reception. Will return soon.

4th Visit!- Gets better every time!

This is our fourth time visiting the 'Dower House' and although every time we've been has been a charm, this was the most delightful of our stays. My daughter and I are always staying in hotels but it's safe to say that this is one of the best hotels. Starting of with a pleasant and warm welcome from the receptionist lady, we made our way up to our room. See more

ladies night

We booked the Dower House in Knaresborough for our Masonic function. Our experience was nothing but positive. The food was excellent, piping hot and cooked well. Those guests who stayed were pleased with their rooms and further enjoyed a quality hearty breakfast. All staff were efficient courteous and helpful. I would like to give particular mention and thanks to Jonathan, Becca and Alison. You helped make a fantastic evening!
