We stayed three nights at Farnley Towers and enjoyed our time there. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was very comfortable with relaxing views across the lawns to the castle and old town. It's a 20 minute walk to the town centre with plenty to look at along the way. Alternatively it's a 5 minute drive and there's easy parking in the shopping centre car park. The breakfast room is light and airy - very pleasant and the cooked breakfasts were excellent. We enjoyed a 5 star dining experience in the Gourmet Spot restaurant though we felt to eat there every night might be a bit overwhelming. There are plenty of places to eat in the town centre. The key question - would we go back? Yes, without hesitation!
