“Fine for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Stayed here for one night, pleasant enough for the price we paid for b&b. Pool and spa facilities fine, room was a little outdated but we were upgraded due to the telephone not working and the upper deck rooms were far nicer. Starbucks tea and coffee, large comfy bed and toiletries. Hotel was a bit noisy due to our room being located over reception. Rooms were boiling with the hot weather could do with air con. Breakfast in the morning was a bit basic but ok for the price I guess. Plenty of nice restaurants in the area. Had one drink in the bar using the voucher booklet handed to us at reception which made first drinks bogof.

We stayed here for 2 nights in July during the hot weather. As some other reviewers have stated the windows didn't open fully but we did have a fan which helped.

The room although quite small was very clean and more than adequate.

The breakfast room has been refurbished since we last stayed and is 100% better. The staff were extremely pleasant and the breakfast very nice. What a nice change to have local staff serving you in a hotel !

The bar is very well stocked although a little pricey and it did need the glasses to be cleared away more quickly - doesn't look good. Although we did sit outside the majority of the time.

This hotel is very well situated for touring around and for Headingley itself.

I have read some of the other reviews and have to say although I agree on a few points, this hotel is perfect for a 1 or 2 night stay.

I chose this hotel as the location was perfect for our needs and the prices for a 3 day stay on the hotel website were excellent.There is plenty of free parking and we were upgraded .The room was smart although quite small and the bed very comfy. Food in the Italian restaurant was very good and unlike others the waits were not long. Our enjoyment was added to by the issuing of vouchers which reduced the overpriced drinks down to pub levels.
However....
The outside of the hotel is shabby. Peeling paint is not something you would expect in a De Vere property.
Housekeeping was hit and miss. Over 3 nights we never hot the same complimentaries or indeed number of towels twice.
Breakfast is average but there appeared to be a lack of staff. Breakfast was advertised to start at the already late hour of 6.45. The buffet was not though fully stocked until 7.00. On one day a man was standing on a chair next to the hot food painting a sign. Very Fawlty Towers
The pub is a mess. It looks dirty.
The pool etc is good but very municipal in atmosphere.
The bedrooms were incredibly hot. There is no air con. A small fan was provided but that just pushed the hot air around whilst making a tremendous noise.
Lessons start in the Gym early at weekends and could be heard in bedrooms at the rear of the building.
Indeed the major problem with the whole place that rather than being a hotel with Spa and Gym facilities it is like a sports centre with rooms. The bar etc tends to be occupied with wet haired people in varying degrees of undress carrying sport bags. Nothing wrong with that of course in the right place but it does not create the right ambiance in a relatively smart hotel.
For a reasonably priced leisure stay this is fine but do not choose for romantic or business purposes and check the weather forecast first!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the front. It will be quieter.

These hotels are all similar, good gym and pool facilities, this one has a Spa, starbucks etc. Therefore it is busy with local members of the same. This isnt a problem, and of course you can use all the facilities.
Restaurant Italian on site. good location for touring the moors with Leeds also nearby. Rooms fairly basic but clean, 5 channel TV. Staff all pleasant, especially breakfast staff.
Breakfast is a buffet, simple but good enough quality.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are a long walk, but quiet!

We ventured to the new Vinnie and Vitos restaurant. An expensive renovation for the very grubby Verve. The decor was great - bright and colourful - but what a disaster. The restaurant was overbooked and the staff overworked. We waited an hour for our starter then an hour for our main. We left well before our whole vinnie and vito experience took us into the wee small hours. I asked for the manager - day off apparently. I asked for the assistant - day off apparently. The staff were embarrassed - the chefs rather loud - I could hear they're attacks on the waiting staff from my seat - thought I was in the middle of Hell's Kitchen and Ramsey was going to make an appearance!
Our meals were free. I only paid for our drinks. Felt so sorry for the staff. This was a major cock up of an evening. Don't think anyone paid. Oh and as I left I asked for the hotel manager and guess what? Day off apparently! Beyond a joke

We stayed for 3 nights during the heatwave. Room was very hot and the windows did not open fully. Thankfully the window safety locks were removed at our request which made a big difference. Our room was spacious and clean, the bathroom was excellent and they have Sky Sports so we could watch the Ashes- very happy with our room. Breakfast was a pretty reasonable buffet, better than on our previous visit, and the restaurant has been pleasantly refurbished. Leisure facilities were very good too. The bar serves good beer and has outdoor seating which was great given the hot weather. However the bar meals that we ordered in the evening meal took an hour and a half to be served. Even the salad starter took an hour and a quarter. This really isn't acceptable and we ate at the nearby bistro the following evening which was much better. Wifi was good, though there was no computer for general use in the public area which would have been useful.
Would stay again but there is room for improvement.

On arrival at the hotel I checked in expecting to pay a reduced price through their friends and family rates for employees (my son in law works for the company and had booked the room). However, on checking in with my two small nieces I was informed that although it was a Family Room they only had my name on the booking and so I would have to pay an additional £20 to cover the cost of the children staying! Considering it was a family room you would think that it would be obvious there would be more than one person staying in it and the only additional cost incurred was breakfast for two children!!
Also, the restaurant has been refurbished recently to incorporate a 'Family Italian Restaurant', read the blurb and listen to the staff telling you the story of Vinnie and how he started this restaurant chain... it is actually all lies!!
In the new restaurant we had breakfast which as far as hotel breakfasts go was very sub-standard, the hot food was all over cooked and tasteless, the pastries were stale and there was no jams for the toast or the croissants.
I have stayed here a few times and had niggling problems before but this is the final resort and I will NEVER stay there again!

Room Tip: For a good room go to another hotel!
