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

The hotel is old traditional building that leads straight into a Bar not a reception. The reception is behind the bar and is very old fashioned and cluttered and when we arrived had workman chatting to receptionist someone else standing around and had to prompt the young receptionist to acknowledge we were waiting to book in. 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.

My family and I stayed here for a wedding which was held 2 minutes down the road at Farmer Coppley's. First impressions, the hotel looks beautiful with well kept grounds and stunning views. However, as you enter the hotel, you realise the beauty stops there. The hotel is very dated with a strange layout (you immediately enter a bar and... More

We stayed here for a wedding on Saturday and upon arrival we had no water at all in the room which resulted in us having a mad rush to get ready. The room which we stayed in was directly next to a building site and after a late night at the wedding we were woken at 8am (on the dot!!)... More
