Spent the weekend at this little gem for my wife's 40th birthday with friends. Great rooms and the staff were so sincere and genuinely could not do enough for us. Great Bistro on one side and a traditional pub on the other all run by the same people so charging to the room easy.

100% recommend a stay here !!

I have stayed a few times now when on business in North Leeds and have never been let down in any area. The beds must be the most comfortable imaginable, feather pillows (what a refreshing change from the norm) and powerful showers. My welcome was pleasant and all staff lovely. I can't find fault. They even have EIGHT real ales in the bar; what more can I say..?

Very nice rooms at a reasonable price. Good restaurant and very well stocked bar. No parking on site which is a pain. Staff were all anxious to please. Some small items need to be addressed in my room - electric room radiator did not work properly, bedside light did not work and heated towel rail in bathroom was loose. Keith Ryder.

This time we stayed in Askwith at the front, last time in Burnstall at the back. Both rooms were similarly tasteful furnished in contemporary style. Huge beds and very, very comfortable with good quality fine bed linens.

Bathroom shower was fab, however the bath took ages to fill, before having a relaxing soak.

Cleanliness of the room and all hotel areas was immaculate.

Some low level noise from the television downstairs in the bar as we retired to bed early.

Check in/ out was friendly and efficient.

Credit where it is due this is a great hotel, with the pub and le Bistrot Pierre offering excellent choice and value. Everyone was so friendly staff and locals. We found it a perfect place for exploring the area.

We will definitely return and bring friends, when the weather is warmer. I hope Le Bistrot Pierre offer more hotel accomodation of this quality, in the future, at other locations, because they appear to have the recipe for success.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back or not over the bar area may be quieter. Not really a big issue though and certain...

After a long drive to arrive at a hotel that has an incredibly efficient, the room was very clean and tastefully decorated (agree with previous review first class shower!!)

Down stairs in the bar the excellent and efficient service continued - great food with a lively and warm atmosphere.

Breakfast was excellent too.

Only down side was the fact there is no car park - so had to park on a public street (albeit on two minutes walk)

Will definitely stay again and would strongly recomend.

Room Tip: I stayed in White Wells which is at the back of the hotel and so was very quiet - I can only guess t...
