Stayed two nights here with my mom while on a lengthy trip through the UK. Our room was in the annex and had one double and one single bed. Positives: room was a reasonable size (not large but not uncomfortable), two chairs, room for luggage (though luggage stands would have been appreciated), small writing desk area and a small closet for hanging clothes. Very quiet as the annex is away from the road. Nice looking, good-sized bathroom that was spanking clean. Basic tea service. Ample parking, and when a relative joined us for a day trip she was allowed to leave her car there while we took ours. Room had a lovely view of Menston and the valley but the windows are too small to take advantage of it. Heating controlled by the guest. Good water pressure in the shower. Restaurant/pub next door is very good. Breakfast was adequate though the fruit, juice and yoghurt offerings on the sideboard were scant compared to most other B&Bs we visited. Easy access to Menston. Well signed and easy to find.
Cons: Tired-looking linens. Cheap furnishings (reminded me of a student dorm room). The bedside lamp seemed to have a dodgy connection, which concerned me so I turned it off/on at the wall outlet. No bathtub, and the shower is open to the rest of the bathroom so everything within spitting distance gets wet. No washcloths. Really tiny sink and the only place to put toiletries is over the toilet, a few feet away. The only shelf in the shower is a tiny thing attached to the pipe; completely inadequate to hold soap, shampoo, and a razor. The bathroom really needs a shelf added to the right of the sink that would double as a shelf for the shower. You can tell the bathroom was designed to look nice and make clean-up quick but it's been done at the expense of function.
We paid 65 pounds a night for two, the same as The Stanage in Telford and Glyn Afon in Llanberis. The Stanage was great, Glyn Afon a nightmare, so this one gets an average rating.
