“Decent four star but didn't blow me away!”
Reviewed February 17, 2010

Stayed here after reading the reviews on TA - had an early flight from Leeds Bradford the next morn. Industrial location - as we were expecting, but this helped us reach our destination without any congestion the next morning. Lovely ambience inside the building - rooms quite nice. Got a free upgrade to a 'four poster room' - would have probably been disappointed if I'd paid £ 40 extra for it as it was nothing to write home about. Sample some lunch - my salmon sandwich was nice but husband's croque monsieur was cold in the middle and the table adjacent to us had quite a few issues with theirs. The spa was quite nice, relaxation area a bit crowded and not recently attended to. The whirpool was cool ish and jets pumping cold. Evening meal was quite a grand affair - lots of people very dressed up, nice ambience and lovely waitress (forgot to attend us for wine - but very chatty and pleasant). Husband not keen on the batter his prawns were cooked in and did not eat his chips as he also found these unpleasant. My starter of crab cakes was passable, the venison was quite nice, followed by creme brulee which was runny (ooh those guys from masterchef would be horrified!). Husband had a particularly lovely glass of red wine and imagine afficionados of the vine would definitely find something here to excite the palette. Overall a pleasant stay but felt the cuisine didn't quite hit the mark.

ShireHotels, General Manager at Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa, responded to this review, February 28, 2010
Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback following your stay. I am so sorry to read that you were let down by the food you experienced at the hotel and can understand your disappointment after reading so many good comments on our reviews. We work hard to deliver high standards consistently and I apologise that on this occasion we seem to have missed the mark. On a more positive note I was pleased to read that you'd enjoyed the spa and that the restaurant team looked after you well during your stay. I hope that perhaps you will give us another chance next time you need to stay in Leeds - please contact me personally to make your arrangements for you.

Gordon Jackson,
General Manager

Very nice four star hotel. Rooms are a good size, with good office facilities (nice desk and leather office chair). Clean and maintained to a good stadard. Impressive entrance, Reception staff VERY professional, smart and efficient. Bar is a bit impersonal, high ceiling, kind of echo-ey, but service is good and choice wide. The Restuarant is fantastic! I had the Honey Roast Pork Belly and it was perfect, just melt in the mouth. Same for the scallops with balck pudding, lovely. Its a bit far from the city, you WILL need a car and it's at the bottom end of a business park on top of a motorway junction, but that is a benefit, because its easy to find. The Spa is great, staff friendly, pool and steam room etc very nice indeed (although some maintenance needs on the lockers and in the sauna). Highly recommended.

We stayed here in Decemebr 2009 and cannot fault this gorgeous hotel one bit, the staff were helpful, the rooms were immaculate and the food was out of this world. We had a massage and spent a few hours relaxing in the jacuzzi, sauna and pool which was very clean. I would recommend this hotel to everyone and will deifinately be returning!

We have stayed in Portsmouth with the Shire Hotels before at the Solent Hotel, so were interested to see if all of the hotels in the group were of this high standard. We were delighted to find that the Thorpe Park more than met our expectations. The rooms were well furnished and spotlessly clean, the facilities excellent and the staff friendly and knowledgable. We have stayed in many four star hotels where you feel uncomfortable taking the children into the dining area. This is not the case in these hotels. Everybody was really friendly towards the children, who are in actual fact well behaved and not creatures from a different planet, despite being treated as such in some other hotels.
The food was outstanding and the breakfast substantial.
I'd recommend this hotel to couples and families.

Just back from a wonderful weekend stay at this fantastic hotel. We were attending a wedding and as we haven't had a holiday for ages we decided to stay for two nights as a little Staycation! What a wonderful place. The food, rooms and staff are all first rate.
Highly recommended even though it was expensive it was well worth the money.
