This is a beautiful hotel with such character and uniqueness it doesn't quite compare to another hotel in this area. The rooms are 7 very different boutigue 4* luxuries with lushious roll tap baths and stunning 4 poster beds. I quite often stay here when working in Leek and always enjoy my stay. There are so many aspects to the building, with the scenic Tapas Bar in the cellar that feels like you really are in the South of Spain, all the way to the Hidden cinema on the first floor that shows its customers free movies and sports. The mattresses are very comfortable and rooms are always in very clean, good condition. The staff are especially friendly and attentive, giving you a lovely warm smile and welcome upon arrival at reception and offer to carry any luggage. The owner is a charming gentleman that has a very good group of people working for him and his passion for the hospitality industry really shows through with his highly considerate attitude. I believe the hotel could be charging more per night for its rooms so would say definitely good value for money whether your stay be on business or for a romantic treat.
