“Beautiful Traditional Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

My daughter and I were at a wedding at Oulton Hall and stayed on the Friday and Saturday evening.... The communal areas of this hotel are just beautiful... especially the champagne bar and rooms leading to and from it. The views of the golf course and beyond are superb.

We paid for a de luxe room, however, upon checking in we were told that de luxe room didn't have sky TV or views or choice of tea and that it might be a good idea to up grade to the next level and receive all the aforementioned at an extra cost of £20.00 per night, which we did. However, the choice of tea was limited and the view was of a roof. The room had been recently refurbished but the wardrobe space was limited, over all the room was fine, but i complained about the lack of tea choice and view and was given a discount of £20.00.
Staff were friendly and the food in the champagne bar was lovely as i had a club sandwich which was more than enough and my daughter had a burger, again she enjoyed her meal. Our friends who had eaten in the restaurant said that their meal was lovely. Wedding venue at the other side of the hotel was versatile and lovely and the wedding breakfast was very good too.
We would have loved to have spent a bit more time here to visit the spa facilities and enjoy the surrounding countryside. I would definitely go back as its very comfortable and has a lovely and slightly grand feel to the main areas.

Stayed here had a wonderful meal in the main restaurant on the Fri Nyt Jason looked after us well . It's rare to find a genuine high class place as this , wine waiter , table service all top class , only down side no one playing the piano but had a wonderful time , if you are looking for a 2 for 1 deal don't bother going if your looking for a very special place that you will remember and want to impress then go for it and ignore the prices .

Stayed overnight with family from all over the country... Marvellous time.... Fabulous staff .... Very attentive ... From reception to bar staff to waiters ... Karim gets a special mention ... Made the 'older' girls feel special bless him.. They loved his banter.... . Thanks... Only bug bear was the over priced bar drinks as all theses places seem to charge ... Robbery.... But the food was outstanding including breakfast .... Shame the weather was cruel as usual but on a nice day would be even better.

Called in for coffee and ended up having cream tea . We sat next to the piano and the room was lovely, STAFF were superb, the young lady serving us had only been working there two days but could not do enough for us, extra tea, extra jam and cream etc. Delightful silver tea service and chine cups etc.
We then move into the chamnpagne bar and had a glass of prosecu ,lovely staff again. the young man asked if all ok and we asked him about a drink we had seen someone else having with strawberries, he then fetched us some to have with our drink. Well done Oulton Hall on employing lovely staff.

We live in the locality, so this review is for Afternoon Tea in the Drawing Room. For a special occasion, it would be hard to beat. The hotel is beautiful, inside and out. The afternoon tea was delicious. A freshly made, well filled variety of finger sandwiches, signature rhubarb scones served with jam and clotted cream, fruit cake with cheese, followed by patisserie cakes. Loose leaf tea in a silver teapot. Beautiful china. All perfect. What made it even more special were the warm, welcoming staff. I'd mentioned when I booked that it was for our wedding anniversary and it was really lovely of the "meeter and greeter" to acknowledge this on our arrival. There was no rush, the service was relaxed and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this for a special treat. And I'm already looking forward to a return visit for my birthday...

Lovely weekend overall
Room was clean but a little outdated and bathroom very small
Champagne bar was great and the Cosmopolitans are excellent
Restaurant staff were very friendly and food was good
Spa treatment room was good but the pool is small and dark and not welcoming. Not much room for relaxing in the spa area either
Recommended as a place for a good value weekend

We stayed 2 for 2nights at Oulton Hall and wow what a great experience it was. We have stayed in many hotels in the past but this was the best. The staff are very friendly and helpful right down from the housekeeping to reception staff, bar staff and restaurant staff included. Breakfast was very good 10/10 from us. My wife used the leisure facilities and the Spa. We did not have dinner at the hotel as we choose to eat elsewhere but there are fully inclusive packages which include dinner. This hotel is a touch of class and we cannot wait to return.
For those of you who prefer not to eat in hotel there are plenty of local pubs a short drive away.
Location is ideal to visit Leeds, York and surrounding areas.
