We stayed 2 nights mid-week, including breakfast & dinner. First, the staff were excellent - always friendly and helpful, both at the front desk and in the restaurant. The room was small, and the bathroom even smaller; it was a struggle to fit 2 of us in it and the toilet, sink and shower were crammed together. The equipment itself...

I was brought here by a friend who visits here fairly often. We booked dinner on a Saturday night and when we arrived there was a cheerful buzz about the place. The restaurant was well presented and there was a good atmosphere. My friend ordered a glass of craft beer. She was not asked if she wanted a pint or...

Our 6th or 7th visit here and we are never disappointed. The service as always happy and friendly with a good choice of food and a busy and efficient bar area. Breakfast as always excellent. There is the added bonus of the local train service into Leeds from Ben Rhyyding station which is close by.

I went to the Wheatley after work the other evening- as we do every week. The gentleman serving us was highly rude and did make us feel very uncomfortable. He stated he had only been working there for three weeks and if I'm honest, it is three weeks too many. He also continued to follow us outside of the Wheatley...

Agree with previous reviews that food is excellent but room we had was badly in need of refurbishment and shower tiles required cleaning. Room 11 had bath in room - sounded nice when spoke to person on booking but room was too small for this and we would have preferred somewhere to sit comfortably. Grossly overpriced.

We stayed here for one night while touring this area. Chose it randomly but we were very pleased with our stay. The room was a little quirky and not that big but clean and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant/bar. Food was very good as was breakfast next morning. We'd stay again

Stayed at this hotel just for one night, and had a pleasant, but average stay. The building itself is beautiful, the sort of hotel that I really like, old and full of character. The check in process is in the bar area, so very public, especially in the evening when people are eating and drinking on there. It was quick...
