We enjoyed a fantastic wedding day at HduV. The organization by the events team was faultless and the service on the day was super efficient. Helped by the weather, the setting could not have been better and we had an absolutely unforgettable day. The food, wine, discreet and efficient service and accommodation could not be faulted. The bridal suite is... More

The hotel was our base for the week-end as we attended a local Wedding Church Service and Reception. From the welcome at Reception, friendly bar, we were thrilled to receive a free upgrade on our room. Excellent evening meal and fantastic breakfasts.We couldn't have had better service.

We booked into the Bistro for a Sunday evening dinner as we had kindly been given vouchers from friends for our wedding. We started with a glass of champagne and a beer in the Burgundy bar. Good service and banter from the barman who brought us good quality complimentary olives and nuts. The bistro room is atmospheric with subdued lighting.... More

We stayed here for our friends' wedding in July. Even before we arrived we had problems. We booked a room well in advance and took advantage of an offer on the hotel website. The offer was for payment to be made when checking out, however, payment was taken there and then. It was a surprise when the £300 or so... More

25 of us attended a family lunch at this Hotel. Parking was easy, welcomed by reception and shown to the gardens for cocktails. Lunch in a reserved room was absolutely lovely. No complaints at all. The staff were so attentive. Would certainly arrange any further function at this hotel. Special thanks to the General Manager who oversaw the event.

Guests can enjoy a game of boules, dining on the garden terrace with its wonderful views across Calverley Park, or a wander through the hotel's very own vineyard.BEDROOMSHoused within this impressive building are 34 timelessly styled bedrooms and stunning suites, all featuring luxurious handsprung mattresses, fine Egyptian linen, deep baths and powerful drench showers, plasma TVs, DVDs and air conditioningBISTROOpen all week, and under the tutelage of head chef Daniel McGarey, Bistro du Vin is at the heart of our hotel, a classic, French styled, elegant and informal setting for lunch, dinner, to meet, celebrate or simply pass the time.
