Stayed here for one night with my son on business in nearby eggborough. Not many hotels to choose from this suited us because it was so close but I was a bit worried about reviews on TP. We arrived about 830pm went to the bar area to check in. All easy just signed in and was given our room key....

Myself and my partner came to spend a couple of nights here. We were put in the annex in the car park, the room was decorated nice and modern and the bathroom came with a bath and shower. Very clean and welcoming. The breakfasts were nice (I'm not a big breakfast fan) and our evening meals were lovely. The staff...
