We stayed here prior to an early flight from Leeds/Bradford to Venice.
Positives: the staff are great- we were leaving too early for breakfast, but the receptionist asked us if we would like the night staff to prepare us a continental breakfast anyway. We did, and it filled a gap. They didn't have to do that. The receptionist, barman and night staff were all most helpful- the hotel's main asset. Another main asset is the hotel's position. It is close to the airport, but in quiet grounds. The price is right- £75 a night including 7 nights parking. The hotel smells lovely, of pine, like a big sauna. The bar served local real ale, Ilkley Brewery's Mary Jane during our stay. It is a spring seasonal ale, not strong, but an exceptionally tasty elderflower scented hoppy brew. Finally, my car was exactly where I left it when we returned.
Negatives: for a hotel advertising itself as somewhere to park and stay near the airport, the parking area was small. There were broken floorboards right by our room. The room was poky, with scarcely space for two cases. The shower would not sit in its housing. Showering with one hand, the other holding the shower head at 5 in the morning is very, very irritating. Some of the decor in the hotel dining room is tired.
In conclusion, we would probably stay here again, but the journey to Leeds from Wolverhampton was such that we would try to fly from closer to home. The hotel's saving grace is its staff. But for them this review would be 2 or 3 out of 5. We got the impression that the owners of the hotel are treating it as a bit of a cash cow, not attending to basic maintenance and running it down.
