Reviewed 26 April 2012

Back again after my last stay in October 2011.If I had a choice out of a top hotel or the Oast guest house no contest it would be the Oast every time.Good clean accommodation good food terrific hosts Helens home made cakes and home made jams not to be missed.Make a booking you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: No swimming pool hit wrong key. I had room 1 again double excellent.

Spent two nights at Oast Guest House whilst supporting two friends cycling the Pennine Bridleway. Front lounge of house is for use by guests and also serves as the breakfast room. Contains plenty of books and information about the area as well as coffee and tea making facilities accompanied by cake. Bedroom was tidy and had an en-suite bathroom and shower which unfortunately delivered water in any direction other than through the shower head. Hot tap on basin didn't work properly and owner didn't address either problem despite being informed. Good breakfast was delivered from 8am. Owner stored bikes in a secure place which was appreciated and dried wet-kit, however, got the impression that other small requests were not welcome although they were met. Two other guests had the same impression. Rating would have been higher if owner had addressed water issues and tried a bit harder to please the clients.

Now being able to respond to the reviews I feel that this review deserves a response. Once again thank you for spending the time to review the Oast Guest House, all reviews are appreciated irrespective of the accuracy of them. Initially the date of the 24th confused me due to the fact that you actually stayed with us on the weekend and your subsequent destruction of the basin tap had to be temporarily repaired because unfortunately, in Settle, plumbers tend not to work at weekends. When you informed me of the problem with the shower as soon as you left for the day a new hose was fitted and that subsequently worked - no further problems encountered. However, in your review you fail to mention this or maybe you didn't use the shower again. You did however manage to break the basin tap again. Never fear though a plumber was available after you left to replace the said tap.
Another inaccuracy is that Cooked breakfasts are served from 7am and before that a cold breakfast is available and as another comment maybe your other requests were asked at inconvenient times or were just inappropriate to be expected from a Bed and Breakfast.
Once again thank your for your review and your constructive comments have been taken on board.
regards
Martyn

On my arrival Friday evening, having 'phoned from the top of Fountains Fell in cloud to say I may be later than expected, I was met by Martyn who immediately took my very wet gaiters and overtrousers to dry over night and stuffed my sodden boots with newspaper. The breakfasts were substantial enough to keep me going all day with just an occasional top up with my own soup and a cereal bar. Each afternoon I returned to a warm comfortable room that was spotless, for a hot shower, followed by Helen's recommendation for my evening meal. The Harts Head about a five minute walk across the river. The meals are reasonably priced and good quality, just what I needed after a day's walking. I had concerns over parking but each day I was able to park in the road without difficulty. Both Helen and Martyn were very friendly and helpful.
In addition, Castleberg Outdoors in Cheapside, Settle is worth a visit if you have lost/broken/forgot any equipment.
They did not have a fitness centre or swimming pool, they were checked in error, but there is a swimming pool just across the bridge on the way to the Harts Head

I can not rate the Oast high enough. Terrific hosts very good clean bedroom and toilet/shower.
fresh fruit in room excellent breakfast both in choice & well cooked. Afternoon tea in lounge with home made cakes. I was even driven back to the station on the Sunday. Very good value all round. Will be returning.
