Very friendly and helpful staff. The catering staff were amazing and coped very well indeed with my dairy-free and wheat-free diet. We were able to get straight through on the telephone when asking for details of parking and so on. Emails were also answered quickly.

First rate venue, staff, facilities, food and refreshments

The staff helped us to launch our new book 'Poems on Prescription'
They were totally understanding; flexible; helpful re unloading beforehand and loading up again at the end. Parking not a problem. Food delicious. Tea, coffee, water snacks plentiful during the conference sessions. Bar excellent and not noisy. Table arrangement couldn't have been better.
Staff unobtrusive but thinking ahead and proactively-helpful. I hope to go again soon.
Book early to avoid disappointment.

Room Tip: i was non-resident at the conference -so cannot comment on the rooms or sleep.

Stayed last weekend for a Medical Writers conference and very, very impressed.

As soon as you walk through the door, you are made to feel welcome by the friendly reception staff for whom nothing is too much trouble.

The food was plentiful and very tasty both in the restaurant and bar, the bed supremely comfortable, the conference facilities ideal.

The location of course adds to the experience as it is only 2 minutes walk from the Bronte Parsonage museum, on the edge of the moors and at the top of a cobbled street of traditional and trendy shops and cafes. Come here with a Bronte novel and relax and absorb the atmosphere, or with your walking boots to explore the moors and discover Wuthering Heights and possibly even Heathcliffe!

We first visited this hotel 16 years ago and have been going back ever since. That really says it all. Despite a round trip of 600 miles as we live in NE Scotland, we feel it's well worth the journey.
On arrival, there is always a warm welcome and never any query about the time, whether we are earlier or later than stated. All receptionists are friendly and make time to chat on a daily basis, despite the fact that they probably have more pressing matters to attend to.
Over the years we have stayed in many of the rooms and found them all to be excellent in different ways - whether it be the view, the size or simply the room we wanted. All rooms are immaculate and very comfortable. The cleaning staff are very particular and manage to maintain a high standard regardless of how busy they are.
The standard of meals in both restaurant and bar is consistently good and service is quick and efficient. The presentation of each meal is excellent which adds to the enjoyment. Breakfast is cooked to order and no matter what combination of food you ask for, it's never a problem.
This year we noticed straight away that some changes had been made to the hotel. The dining room tables and chairs have been upgraded but are still in keeping with the original features. There are new windows in the bedroom and the net curtains have disappeared. That took a bit of getting used to when changing!
All in all, yet another enjoyable break. Well done everyone. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!
