We recently stayed at the Stonecroft hotel in Bramley for 2 nights and it's a great little find. For years I've driven past that road junction and only noticed the Elton hotel opposite.
We've just been up in Yorkshire clearing my mother's house out as she's moving to a home and we needed somewhere to stay for 2 nights once the house was empty. Stonecroft came up with the best rate and so we stayed there. It's a quaint little place and there are touches of it that go back to the mid-20th century. The landlords rather surprised expression that 2 men had booked a room with a double bed is one of them. 21st-century folks! The room we were given was a garden room, and it wasn't huge, but having said that we had asked for it so that we could unload things from the car and store them in the room for 2 days. The other rooms in the main house I understand to be bigger, so I would certainly ask for one of those.
There's free Wi-Fi - always a bonus, although I have to say the service was intermittent, and the television reception in our room was absolutely terrible. The picture kept breaking up to the point of being unwatchable. I'm not sure whether this is the case in other rooms, but it might be worth checking.
You couldn't fault the hospitality provided at breakfast. A friendly welcome, great selection, fabulous cooked breakfast and first-class service and ultimately that's what makes any hotel worth returning to. Yes, there were a few marks on the bed covers, and had we taken the proverbial cat along we would have had problems giving it any exercise in our bedroom. The ensuite shower room was very cold and not a brilliant size for 2 six-foot guys. We didn't ask for anything to be changed while we were there as we were busy, rushing around, and all we wanted to do was crashing to bed at the end of the 2 days. I'm sure that judging by the level of service we received at breakfast, had we asked about anything, something would have been done.
The Stonecroft is a great little find and on future trips to Yorkshire one that I would certainly consider using.
