Shaun I, Owner at King's Croft Hotel, responded to this review

I do not normally respond on line as I prefer to deal with customers personally. I think this review is completely unreasonable. I have received and responded to 4 emails re this complaint with the later ones being abusive. The lady was annoyed that her other family member was upgraded to a executive room FOC. More

We stayed here overnight in one of the family rooms, which was situated outside in the still being built block. The room is very modern but very small for a family room. The bathroom is very well finished, however, the biggest gripe we had with this is that there is nowhere to put the towels, even the towel radiator is... More

We've eaten in this hotel many times when visiting family in the area. On this occasion we decided to sleep here as most of the buses which use Wakefield Road travel direct to the OAP complex where my mother lives. However, we will not be staying at Kings Croft again despite the fact it is set in beautiful grounds with... More

We had a Family... More

I have eaten here many times and every time the food has been delicious. I recently attended a wedding which was well catered for and the staff were very tentative to the bride and groom and also the guests throughout the day.

The locals In Pontefract are missing out on an excellent foodie experience. We had dinner Saturday 24th May and the restaurant was nearly empty. However our waiter was funny and efficient, lifting the evening, the food we all agreed was really good and not expensive. Would recommend it to everyone.
