“Best hotel I've been in!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

I have stayed here for a total of 8 weeks whilst on a teaching placement at a nearby school and I have to say this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The staff are welcoming and will go the extra mile to make sure you are at ease whilst staying there. Will definitely use this hotel if I ever visit nearby again

Stayed April 2014, travelled on business

What a surprise, was booked into this hotel as part of a large group doing a charity walk between Skipton and Leeds. I had no pre expectations of this hotel so went in completely blind. What a fantastic hotel this was. It was modern, comfortable and the staff were brilliant. They looked after all 35 of us really well and the evening meal and breakfast were as good as any swanky hotel in London. You will not be disappointed staying in this hotel...a very affordable price too. I hope to stay here again soon.

We were due to be staying at the Hollins Hall Marriott for a golfing competition however we needed an extra room and the prices they were quoting were more than double our original cost. We therefore looked around the local area and found Abbey Lodge scoring high on trip advisor.
Cancelling the Marriott, we booked one superior double and one twin room and after a friendly speedy checkin we found the rooms to be clean, and of a good size.
Very nicely decorated as well.

The DVD player is a nice touch and would be ideal if you were there for a few nights, however we were there during the World Cup so no suprises what my football mad family had tuned in.

We had intended to eat locally however as the evening was quite breezy we decided to just give the hotel food a try. No problems again, good basic pub grub, decent size portions and very reasonably priced. Two courses for 4 of us, with a round of drinks came in around £50 - can't argue with that.

ASDA 24 supermarket just round the corner if you find you've forgotten anything.

Inclusive breakfast another nice touch.

Speedy checkout. All the staff we had to deal with were very helpful and friendly.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone, it's small but very well ran.

Suppose if I had to give any down side if would be the parking which others mention is a little tight (it's essentially back street parking) however the hotel do advise lots of alternative parking facilities in the immediate vicinity so they've identified the issue and are doing all the can to address it.

If we need to return to the area I would not even consider using anywhere else.

Great find.

Just returned from another great stay at the Abbey Lodge. What a lovely hotel! The staff are so friendly, the rooms are spacious, clean and modern and the breakfasts fabulous. The fried bread was delicious! Its walking distance to Saltaire and round the corner from the best Indian restaurant in England. What more could you want?

Room Tip: The rooms with spa baths are super

Only stopped for one night but would like to share the same positive comments as many other guests. What you get at this hotel is an honest and warm northern welcome. After a soul destroying journey up the M5&6 from Cardiff the Abbey Hotel offered a comfortable haven, the staff were more than helpful and the family room we booked was spacious and beyond expectation. Breakfast was prompt and plentyfull, this small modest hotel is clean and obviuosly well managed, a blueprint that other should follow. Simple rule - give people what they want and they will return!

Room Tip: Family room 302 gets a little road noise but nothing too disruptive.

This hotel is a good alternative to the plastic Premier Inn and Travel Lodge brands. Very pleasant service and great breakfast. Good nights sleep and nothing seemed too much trouble. Will visit again when in the area.
