“Perfect”
Reviewed 24 February 2011

Absolutely loved this hotel! We stayed here because we had a friends party to go to up the road. The rooms are lovely, really modern, flat screen TV with freeview, really comfy bed (with a quilt which i consider a luxury seen as u usually get a sheet!). The bathroom was modern and the room itself was huge! Our friends (another couple) stayed in the room next door and theres was exactly the same fantastic size and mirror image of our room! The hotel has a pub/restaurant underneath it, which is priced really reasonably and there is a menu in your room.
Slept amazingly well in this hotel no noises or banging doors which you usually expect when in hotels!
Would recommend to anyone!

Valentines day, what a joke. Supposed to be a romantic night with my girl friend. They put us on a table with another couple. Got my meal wrong. Starter poor, main course poor. I complained to the management and they said they wouldn't give me my money back as we've ate some of the food. So they offered a meal in the main pub. In their the service was poor, the main course was poor and they got my order wrong again. Waited for the manageress for 30 mins and she wasn't available. Not happy at all. Totally ruined out night and will never go their again. Will also be writing a letter to their superiors. What really peves me off is the meal cost me 40 pounds and they wouldn't even give me a refund!! Please avoid this place.

I cannot fault the Bluebell whatsoever. We got married here an absolutely everything was excellent. The staff at the function suite bent over backwards for everyone. The Hotel was lovely. The honeymoon suite was immaculate, four poster bed, jacuzzi bath, very big, table, big TV, i could go on. Plenty of our guests stayed over and they all said that there rooms were great. No faults at all from anyone. The bar/ restaurant is nice aswell, great meals at great prices. If your staying over night, we recommend it, if your planning your wedding reception there, then we DEFINATELY recommend it!

Had to wait a very long time in the check-in queue - apart from that - all was good.

Our second stay at the Bluebell, the first being just after it opened. We upgraded to a 'Premier Room' which is really nice (about the same standard as a Premier Inn double - but more expensive). The room was fine, except that the TV wasn't tuned in (had to ask the very obliging night staff to help with that one!), the table lamp had no bulb in it at all, the trouser press was in pieces and the rather plush faux silk duvet cover needed a good ironing! We'd booked continental breakfast on both days. Young staff served us with coffee, but there was only white toast, they'd run out of brown bread (couldn't someone nip to the shop?), no croissants on either morning (they're a menu item); the fresh fruit looked lovely but it wasn't prepared so we had to struggle to hull strawberries and peel kiwi fruit with blunt table knives; the sideplates were saucers (?), the cereal spoons were actually soup spoons and there weren't any teaspoons at all. I know the Bluebell bills itself as a budget hotel but none of these irritations would cost much if anything to resolve. Attention to detail is what makes a hotel stand out from its competitors and the Bluebell has plenty of those, with a new Ramada Encore and Premier Inn close by

We have just spent Saturday night here with family whilst visiting friends locally.

Can't say enough about the friendly, helpful and attentive staff despite being a very low price for a lovely modern family room. It far surpassed our expectations for the price we had paid.

Perfect for families with young children as family restaurant right next to well equipped indoor play area. Also free WIFI with good connection and just off M1.

Will definitely stay here again - what a gem!

We stayed here last week but the one in Selby what a lovely place we would book again. We went up to Yorkshire for a wedding and found this easy to get to near major roads has a great resturant food is great. If you have children it is ideal if you dont it is not a problem as children have there own area and there is an adault area for eating if you want a quiet meal.
