We stayed here for one night while guests at a wedding in another hotel. First, the positives. Very central position. Handy for all Skipton's attractions. Clean accommodation (apart from what appeared to be the remains of a Bombay Mix in the top drawer of the bedside cabinet) Efficient shower and plenty of hot water. Comfortable beds. Excellent breakfast. Charmingly friendly...

Lovely bed and breakfast. Very comfortable and warm. Breakfast very good. Even better was sky tv with both sport and movie channels. Overall an enjoyable visit which we would thoroughly recommend. Lots of places to eat out with just a short walk back from the town. Central to everything really.

First of all thank you for noting the positives. Heating is left on 24/7 in all rooms and only ever gets turned of by guests who fiddle with it! The heater in the room was turned off on arrival for the aforementioned reason, I know this as I showed the guests in and did apologise for the fact it had...

We booked for one night, as a stopover on the return from Harrogate. We'd collected the keys on our way (Mick talked us through the safe over the phone, really east and meant we didn't have to hang around) and texted breakfast later on in the evening. Mick was friendly and welcoming. Location is great. Close to centre of town...

Bed and Breakfast accommodation in Skipton Town Centre. Accommodation very clean with friendly staff. We were located in one of the attic rooms which served its purpose. Comfortable beds and had good nights sleep. The breakfast was very filling and I would use the accommodation again. Reasonably priced.

We booked one night here as a relaxing, child-free Saturday. We had to take the family room as it was the only one left and paid £115 for the privilege. However, I'm extremely glad we didn't have the children with us as the room was so cramped. The room contained a double and 2 singles - but with only 6...

This is a no frills B and B but it is conveniently located near Skipton town centre. The owner is very friendly and helpful and provides a hearty breakfast. There is free parking. We were accommodated in the family room which would have been too cramped for a family of four.

We had only booked this place as we were unable to find other accommodation in Skipton for the night. The room was like a sparsely furnished student dorm and the floorboards creaked incessantly. We had no sleep, the walls were paper thin. Although the people next door were not being loud we could hear them talking, coughing and the floor...
