fantastic hotel

This was a lovely hotel. The spa was excellent and the staff really helpful. We did not get to eat dinner in the restaurant, but breakfast was really tasty. Bar was very smart and we'll decorated. Will definitely be visiting again, hopefully for a long weekend

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!
