We loved the spacious reception and lounge areas of the hotel and particularly the 'library' with its realistic open fire and comfy settees. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient, particularly Lauren and the team in the restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts (with eggs poached to order) and dinners chosen from an interesting menu.
Our room was comfortable, clean and quiet. We slept soundly and were in danger of over-sleeping one morning! Ask for a shower mat if your room has an over-bath shower as the bath is quite slippery.
We made use of the nearby Park and Ride (bendy-buses!) to reach the city centre which took all the hassle out of finding somewhere to park. It was, however, the weekend of one of the Christmas markets, so the queues for the return trip were very long. One 'find' was the craft market at St William's College, near the National Trust shop.
Most Yorkshire folk are friendly and full of character. In the city, one lovely lady even stopped and asked if she could help us, as we stood studying our street map.
Over all, a very enjoyable stay, even if it was frrreeeezing outside.
