I've stayed at the Waterfront Lodge a few times and it's an appealing and comfortable place to be. It's been developed from an old Yorkshire mill so is something of a maze in terms of getting to rooms, but the signage is good and, to be fair, I've walked a lot further in major chain hotels. Having stayed in executive and deluxe rooms I can't comment on other options, but these rooms are spacious, have great beds and the complimentary shampoos etc that define a quality operation. That said, some of the rooms need some sprucing up, especially bathrooms. Nothing really bad, just some tired grouting that could easily be sorted. I understand there is some work scheduled this year to sort this so that's a positive sign.
A major plus for the hotel is its restaurant, Pregos. It's a slice of Italy with very good food. The other plus is that breakfast is included in the room price. Having been charged ludicrous amounts of money in other establishments for food that appears to have emerged from a Soylent Green conveyor belt, the breakfast here is well worth taking. Yes, there are the usual containers with beans, bacon etc, but you can ask for your eggs to be prepared as you want, get black pudding and rostis. Lots of cereal juice etc choice. Can't fault it.
Staff are unfailingly helpful and though Brighouse may not be on a major destination map it should be with lots of great little shops including a sweet shop that sells Pontefract Cakes and brilliant cheese and wine shop.
And no, I don't live in Brighouse or in the UK!
