Stayed in the family room which was spacious, if a little tired looking in appearance and bathroom could do with a bit of updating. However double bed was very comfortable and room had a decent sized tv and tea/coffee facilities. Creaking floorboards in the room above and in the reception area were a bit annoying early morning.
The breakfast room was light and airy, and the food on offer was well presented and very tasty. Also the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Farnley Towers has a great position with views over the town, but it is a steep walk down and back up again to get to the main places to visit and eat/drink. Found a good pub in the town which served decent pub food, The Court Inn, quite near the police station.
