My friends and I booked this hotel for a surprise weekend away for a birthday. We had no idea what to expect but from the moment we walked in the car park (not even the front door!) we were impressed. The staff were polite, friendly and couldn't do enough for us. They gave us help with the local area, booked... More

We booked on the Thursday evening for a 1 night stay on the Saturday. We feel we definitely found a diamond in the rough with this wonderful place. The hotel its self is a lovely building and the interior is lovely old world style. It was very easy to find being on the main road with a lovely large car... More

This hotel is a shadow of what it claims to be! Drab, dirty full off drunk locals hanging around the reception area.Music blasting through the building, TV in next room on all night, a bar that makes the slaughtered lamb in American werewolf seem appealing. Booked a 2 night stay left after the 1st and booked into a decent clean... More

We were a party of 3. Showed up on a Tuesday to depart Thursday. I purchased the stay through a Wowcher deal and thought by the photograph advertising the deal that this was a fantastic place to stay. ( the photograph depicted a view from a window overlooking the rolling hills in the countryside. ) Instead it was a main... More

First off, the 3 "receptionists" Lauren, Rene & Sarah treated us with true "Yorkshire Hospitality" from start to finish! But it gets better!! Michael, the owner, served up 2 ginormous breakfasts on day 1 & despite cutting them down after we pleaded with him on our 2nd day, we still couldn't finish them - and very tasty they were as...

We had a wowcher 2night trip bought for us. We were greeted by receptionist/bar woman smoking at the entrance to the hotel so had to walk through the smoke to check in. Not pleasant. She wasn't particularly friendly. Showed us to our room which looked rather tired, with no wardrobe. Bathroom looked ok. The bar didn't look inviting. Am afraid... More

Helpful staff,friendly hotel, delicious big breakfasts. General reception area and main hallway is a wee bit neglected, but room was large, comfortable and spotless...Good location for city centre, overlooks Lister Park for a lovely wee walk.

Don't know why people knock this hotel, yeah there is locals and workmen at the pub downstairs, but the bar staff are great and the drinks are cheap. For an absolute bargain price of £44, we stayed in the famous room 203 for my 28th birthday. It was lovely, spacious, clean, and had a Jacuzzi bath which was to die... More
