“Nice hotel - shame about the beers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Quite a nice hotel, we stayed over after a wedding. Top tip - there is a great pub just down the road in Tong (Greyhound). Go there. There was absolutely no drinkable beer at the bar (I think the only choice was Boddingtons or some watery lager. It really needs sorting out.
Beds were huge and comfy and we passed on the pricey breakfast (I'm veggie and adverse to paying a tenner for some toast)

Dear Guest

Thank you for your balanced feedback, we have taken all your comments on board. Boddingtons is the only beer we do stock; as Lagers are the most popular drink for our customers we have a wider selection of these.

If you require a larger selection of traditional beers, there are some good places within the local area as are Hotel is well positioned to be a short drive away to the fantastic Yorkshire Dales.

The continental price for the Breakfast is much cheaper and provides a better option for your next stay.

Kind Regards

Matthew

Stayed one night following a wedding. The room was excellent. Enormous bed, decent TV, nice and clean. Didn't eat here as the breakfast was a bit pricey. Bar staff were great. Shame about the terrible choice behind the bar. No real ale on draught, just lager, stout and a keg of Boddington's fizz. The bottled drinks were lacking in imagination too. Could do better. Overall a good place but if I were staying here I'd be having a drink at the excellent pub The Greyhound down the road.

Dear Sam G,

Thank you for taking the time to write a response.

Breakfast when not included in your Bedroom rate can be pr ordered for a discounted rate.

We do stock over ten different Bottled drinks and on Draught we have Stella, Stella 4%, Becks, Boddingtons, Murphys and Thatcher’s Cider.

We are always looking to try and improve are product range but we believe these products cater for most of our customers tastes.


Kind Regards

Pros:
The Rooms were large and well-presented and the shower was hot and strong.
Location is great if you don’t want to be in the city and is only 15 mins from the centre
Nice grounds and plenty of parking
Quiet area with a nice bar and spacious dining area. Beer was cold and tasted as it should.
The hotel would be great for a function (wedding etc.) and there had been a few while we were there.
Cons
Food was not up to standard. I had a Chicken burger for dinner one night and it was a piece of chicken in a bun. Not what I expected at all. No one at the table enjoyed their meal and it was expensive for a burger. We ate out every night after that. Breakfast was mixed. one morning we had trays of food on hot plates and the next it was table service. One morning we turned up at 6:45am and there was no milk for cereal and no fresh orange juice. Now there was never that many staying so I can only imagine it wasn’t topped up.
Majority of the staff not very enthusiastic and it reflected badly on the hotel.
Gym was very basic and not maintained. I had to ask them to fix the rowing machine and the water cooler. Note these were fixed. When I booked the hotel, mainly for the gym, it gave the impression of being bigger. Note it’s not. The dumbbells are very light and all you can do is a bit of cardio and some Ab workouts.
Summary:
Mixed review for me with this Hotel.
I stayed here for 5 nights in total over two weeks and I won’t stay here again, if I’m being honest. But that shouldn’t put people off from staying here. The food is ok at best and the service is ok but it is a nice hotel in a nice area. There was a couple of staff who did their best but the majority of them gave me the impression they could be bothered. But that’s just my opinion.
Other customers may like this hotel but it wasn’t for me and I have tried to be fair with this review as there are some good points to the hotel but for me too many bad.

Room Tip: Be as far away form the funciton room as possible. You can hear the music of function in some rooms

Thank you for taking the time to post your balanced and constructive feedback about your stay.

The Gym is advertised as a mini gym on our hotel website and other third parties websites.

I have passed on your comments to the relevant Head of departments to improve are levels of service based on your feedback.

We do pride ourselves on our good level of customer service and good food, which is why we have a large number of repeat Hotel guests on a weekly basis.

I would like you to reconsider about your views not returning to the Hotel.

Kind Regards

The hotel is located in a small village between Leeds and Bradford, a peaceful location and quite rural... We used this as an overnight base for visiting friends and family in Leeds.

I got a great rate with the Holiday Inn website and parking at the hotel is no problem due to the large car park.

On arrival I was recognised as a Priority Club member and had my 'Welcome Pack' ready and waiting for me. We were given a large corner room with 2 double beds - lovely and spacious with pleasent decor and a spacious bathroom to boot - my daughter kept remarking how lucky we were!! The room itself was very clean and the beds were very comfortable - a good nights sleep!!

All the staff we encountered were friendly, helpful and extremely courteous... we had arrived late in the evening but the restaurant staff were more than happy to accommodate us - the food was lovely, really tasty and plenty of it!!

The breakfast choice was excellant - something for everybody and the cooked food was actually hot!!

All in all, a very good stay. Will be visiting Leeds again next month and will def consider using this hotel for a peaceful and comfortable nights sleep

Room Tip: The corner room (family room) at the far end of the hotel is lovely and spacious...

We had our wedding service, reception and evening "do" at the hotel ; the food was the best we have had at such occasions; the help and service were second to none; the m.c. for the day was terrific and Mellissa the wedding organiser had everything under control and was extremely helpfull. We had a fantastic day it could not have been better

Our wedding reception last Saturday really special.
It’s a beautiful hotel in a lovely spot and my new husband and I
Had the best party we’d ever had.
It was excellent and went so smoothly (and quickly!!!) we can’t quite believe it.
Would recommend it as a wedding venue to anyone.

Room Tip: We fitted an extra party in between afternoon reception and evening reception in Suite number 6...

Myself and my other half stayed here at the beginning of October 2012.......for a wedding!

The exterior of the building and location is wonderful. Just outside of Leeds and Bradford and close by a village pub I could not fault the area.

The hotel itself was nicely appointed with a reception area and bar area just off to the right when you enter.

The check in was absolutely fine and I have no complaints about the staff at all. With it being a little late in the evening and a long drive we checked into our room (107) and then went down to the bar area to grab a few bar snacks and have a drink with some other people from out party.

The room itself was ok - not great in terms of decor. the bathrooms are very much late 80's early 90's and could definately do with a makeover.

The main room area was fine - A new modern LCD TV, writing desk, basic sofa and table and of course the bed. The bed was extremely comfy and I had no complaints about this.

Despite the fixtures being a little tired I couldnt complain as we were paying £72 a night including breakfast.

The area where the hotel does need to improve though is cleanliness - if the hotel manager is reading this, take a trip up to 107 and have a look at the splattering of what I presume is coca cola all down the side of the wall near the bed, not a great look - is it something that ruined my stay though? No of course not.

Overall a nice hotel, I would stay again but it is starting to look a little rough around the edges - especially compared to some of the other Holiday Inn's I have stayed in.
