Just returned from two nights here when working in Ilkley and Leeds. First off, excellent staff. From Amy through to the duty manager and then to Barr and restaurant staff, all were excellent.
Food is top quality pub grub at very reasonable prices. The bar has a range of well kept real ales, the whole hotel is served by free wifi and there is plenty of car parking.
My only quibble was having to move rooms firstly when my bathroom door wouldnt unlock at 10.30 at night, then again the next day when my replacement room got redecorated while i was working! That said, the duty manager was great and very apologetic.
So would I return again? Yes I will. The hotel is in a beautiful position overlooking the moors, and i reckon that will be the perfect place to enjoy a beer garden pint or two on a warm summers evening
