We held our wedding breakfast at the kings croft hotel on the 12th of April and we had THE most fabulous day. We had to make changes to numbers and meal choices at the last minute, and nothing was a problem. The food was fantastic, the gardens were beautiful and the staff were second to none. Our room to stay in on the evening was to die for. All in all, it was just the best day! So, great thanks to Shaun, claire, richard and a special thank you to the chef and back room staff, you all made our day perfect. Thank you.

This is not a bad hotel but it is a bit last century. The staff are friendly enough, there's ample parking, it's well priced and.. well that's as far as it goes.

The room I stayed in was huge but had some odd features; a roll top bath in the bedroom itself (fully functioning), the false ceiling was akin to office styling and the remote control was fixed to the bed via a wander lead. It was clean enough just very odd.

Went down to the restaurant for supper where the only internal access is via the function suites (apparently there had been an abundance of funeral receptions and senior birthday do's during the day) and they were being prepared for evening business use. The walls in the foyer are festooned with adverts for tribute acts whom clearly make regular weekend appearances to entertain the masses. Once the function rooms were in use you need to walk across the patio to get to the restaurant- not the end of the world but again a bit odd.

Nothing prepares you for the restaurant itself- it's best described as an inside out wedding cake. There are cream curtains and drapes all over the show with high backed dining chairs covered in what look like black tights- all designed to give a faux sophisticate look. It just needs black ash furniture but fear not- the tables are all topped with black frosted glass. Oh and it is in a sort of conservatory which needed an industrial fan heater to keep warm and the carpet hadn't been hoovered from when ever it was last done.

The menu was limited (prawn cocktail as a starter was a real throwback- had to try it for posterity), the portions huge but nothing of any real quality.

It will probably appeal to many and it's not a bad place, just not of this century.

Stayed 3 nights with my daughters wedding on the Saturday in the Kings Suite. 11 of us had a meal in the restaurant on the Friday which was magnificent.

Quality of food for wedding breakfast superb for 70 people. Sean and all the staff attentive and extremely helpful. For wedding, meal out or a longer stay would thoroughly recommend. All guest rooms of high standard with 11 of our party staying minimum of 2 nights.

Stayed: March 2014

nice venue, which is why i assume its popular for wedding receptions, as there were 2 happening at the same time when i stayed.lots of people, limited parking, busy bar, and loud from the 2 DJ's trying to 'out DJ' each other. was great for people watching and being amazed at the size of the heels some women can walk in while intoxicated. room was small but adequate, id stop there again.

We stayed there by chance, just because we decided to shorten our stay in Liverpool and it was the only place we fojnd close to our next destination. The place was amazing, the staff get, but best of all, our dinner with great music and excellent food. We hadthe best family dinner ever, we were the last to leave the restaurant. I wish somwday we can go back!,

A very nice hotel with very friendly staff. The hotel grounds are amazing, even in winter, obviously intended for wedding photography.

There was a hiccup with my online booking (through Booking.com), but luckily they had a room available anyway.

The room was clean and spacious with an en-suite shower room.

I had the full English breakfast, which was excellent. Tea, coffee and orange juice were available to help-yourself to.

I'd have no hesitation in staying here again.

New Years Eve at Kings Croft 2013. Fantastic time was had by myself, wife, and two friends. We've been here a few years now and the quality has never slipped. The buffet was fantastic and the entertainment (Tina Turner) was superb. This must be one of the best venues in Yorkshire for value for money, keep up the good work. See you next time.
