“1st Class...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

A friendly and personal welcome....the room was clean and smartly decorated. In the morning there was plenty of hot water, even early on. I went down before breakfast officially started (as I had to leave early) and the night watchman made me egg and bacon - lovely.

The hotel says it strives for customer service excellent. On the evidence I saw, they got there. When this is viewed against the cheap price point for the room, this place can be extremely proud of the product it offers!

Good = breakfast superb with lovely quality products, great power shower in ensuite bathroom, free parking, good locality.

Bad = very small double room with only one bedside table n lamp, room too hot, bad impression on arrival with what seemed like a homeless person sitting in reception area, lighting in room and bathroom very dark.

Room Tip: Ask if there are larger rooms as the small double we had was claustrophobic.

we stayed here for 2 nights and used it as a base to travel to leeds. the staff are the most pleasant, helpful and obliging that we have met in hotels we have stayed. the bedrom was spacious, clean, beds very comfortable lovely duvets. bathroom with bath and overhead shower very modern and good flow of hot water.i cant comment on breakfast as we didnt attend but the smell of bacon was fabulous. excellent having free wiifi in bedrooms. we would definately come back as it is very often very difficult to find hotels that will have a triple bedroom with 3 separate beds.

Lovely hotel with friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere modern rooms and a good location to routes for shopping etc the only thing that let this place down was when we went down stairs to breakfast we had to wait over 30 mins to be seated to eat breakfast along with the other 5 couples crammed into reception then when we were seated for breakfast after 10 mins we were asked would we like anything else as they needed the table as they had a people waiting (we were still waiting for our breakfast at this point) but there only seemed to be two people dealing with a full breakfast room, unfortunately we had to finish our breakfast half eaten and be on our way as we were on a deadline and we had been waiting over 50 mins before it arrived ( it was nice what we did get to eat)

I was welcomed here as if I were a friend, the room was clean and comfortable and the staff were top notch. I arrived late on Sunday evening and after enquiring if there was somewhere nearby I could go for food I was given all the local take-away menus so that I could order in.

This was a fantastic place to stay - the building is lovely, the decor is a stylish and a bit quirky but never overbearing, my room was wonderfully comfortable, the staff were lovely from start to finish and the quality of the ingredients at breakfast was tremendous. The rave reviews on here are absolutely justified, this place is superb

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a nice view of the church

Such a lovely stay in this hotel. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Bedrooms very comfortable and clean and lovely breakfast each morning. A great base from which to visit Saltaire, Bradford or Leeds. Would highly recommend. Thank you for a great stay.
