Whilst on business I recently stopped at Boswell House and found the entire experience excellent value for money. The professional and friendly manner in which I was welcomed by the owners was matched by the standard of accommodation and all the little extras including tea and coffee making facilities, trouser press, stationery and good quality toiletries that my room offered. The evening meal and breakfast was both delicious and plentiful, I would definitely stop at Boswell House again and I have already recommended it to friends and colleagues.

Spent many years when living near this hotel, walking past it every day. Now moved away from the area, we needed a place to stay overnight for a family wedding. We were not disappointed with the facilities. The owners were very pleasant, friendly and welcoming - very hospitable. The room was well equipped and clean and tidy, and the breakfast was substantial. There was further tea, coffee and bottled water available if you used what was provided in the room, for a donation to a charity. Bed was comfortable and we both had a good nights sleep. We would highly recommend, and we will be back again ourselves when we need a room in the area again.

I stayed at Boswell House Hotel for 3 weeks. The owners ( husband & wife) are very nice and friendly people. Comfortable accommodation that really felt like being in your own home. Private, clean just beautiful. I would highly recommend Boswell House Hotel because you are 1 minute from the town Centre but still have the peace of being in what felt like a manor. Train station is also walking distance. The bathrooms are superb. The lounge/bar area a must go to. I was staying there whilst waiting to complete on the purchase of my house.

We booked this back in February. We had a lovely stay. Owners were so hospitable and nothing was too much trouble. Very clean and had thought of everything you could need for rooms and also communal toilets in ground floor. Beds super comfy. Slept like a log. Breakfast was super too. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

Stayed here with a large group as we had a wedding locally . We were greeted by a friendly face and a warm welcome. A peaceful stay with all we needed . A delicious brekkie and as much juice and coffee as we wanted! Would happily stay again ... Thank you for your hospitality from the Leeds Greek gang ! X
