We stayed here Monday night. We were surprised to see a wedding reception when we arrived as you don't often see them on Mondays, and we were also a little worried about whether it would get noisy later on. The staff at reception were helpful, and without us making any suggestions or comments, offered us an upgraded room as it... More

After many recommendations I decided to book a Mother's Day 3 course lunch for the family to enjoy. Never again! The hotel outside is beautiful, well kept gardens, clean and tidy car parks but that is all the hotel has going for it... We were greeted by a very rude member of staff stating we were late...we were in fact... More

I wanted a low cost overnight stay in the Pontefract area, and was pleasantly surprised to see what looked like a traditional country house hotel offering excellent value. It was fairly obvious from the material available on the internet that this hotel has quite a lot of weddings, but I figured that I would be unlikely to be disturbed by... More

Stayed one night, nice clean room, good bathroom, the room itself is perhaps a little small. Good breakfast not buffet but waitress served which makes a very pleasant change. Convenient for the A1. Good value.Enough said

An overnight stop on a Saturday and I was not attending any of the functions. When the reception realised this they allocated me a different room, one of the bungalows adjacent to the hotel. It was later in the evening that I realised how grateful I was. I decided to eat out, and on my return went to the bar.... More

I was in one of the new modern bungalows. It was very comfortable, with excellent decor, lighting and shower room. It is unusual, but opening out to a lovely view. The staff were extremely helpful, beyond the call of duty, and the early supper I had was delicious. I will definitely return again if I am in the area.

A one night stay only. On arrival we were asked if we were here for the function. We explained the reason for our stay was for a funeral the following day. We were unaware and not advised that the function was a live band and 250 people that evening. We were given Room 12 which had an overwhelming smell of... More

Stayed here a week before Christmas and have to say I was underwhelmed by the hotel, the rooms are not brilliant, lot better size rooms at Travelodge and Premier Inn, breakfast Im afraid is just not good enough I think need to review supplier/type of sausage/bacon served at breakfast. Would stay here only as last resort.

For the extra 10 quid, book a double room if travelling on your own. The single Rooms are so small there is no place to put any luggage. Nice restaurant though with very attentive staff. Whilst the place has a nice look about it, I realise they are not charging 5 star prices but I do believe the rooms could... More
