A lovely hotel, very friendly owner and staff. We were made to feel very welcome. A great breakfast was provided, bowls of lovely fresh fruit to start followed by a full cooked breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable. Very good value and I would definately go back if I was up in this area again.

Charming hotel, the staff were friendly, rooms were clean, spacious and well presented. Lovely bathrooms and very comfortable plush beds. The breakfast was delicious, all free range and lots of choice. Not a buffet but table service, could choose from any style of egg including omelette. The bar was open 24 hours. Staff couldn't do more to help. Very pleasantly surprised.

Very good value for money B&B. Stayed in superior room with spa bath, very large comfy bed, large flat screen tv, and jacuzzi bath. Breakfast excellent. Fresh fruits, cereals and full english. Very clean accommodation. Staff very friendly and helpful. Minor downside room was in basement with small windows and not much light but was okay for a one night stay. Parking can be a problem but staying Saturday night - Sunday morning fewer parking restrictions at front but could be a problem on weekdays. Parking at back of hotel very limited. Saltaire seemed a nice little area and good base for sight-seeing.

Amazing what a long lens camera can do !!! Admittedly this was only a 3 star hotel and we were just passing through for one night but really ?? Should the upstairs corridor smell of curry ? Should the room be stifling hot even with window open all night? Should our "deluxe upgrade" room have just one drinking glass - OK am I being picky but I'm annoyed. Didn't even consider breakfast on the small Formica tables. Hotel is just about 4 terraced houses combined together. Difficult parking one table outside at the back for smokers.and if you want to eat out well I hope you had better luck than us - if you like a rundown weatherspoons or dubious curry houses you should be OK. We settled for local fish & chipshop. I give credit where it is due but in this case is not due and I'm rather surprised at the other reviews.But I guess you get what you pay for so our own fault for choosing this hotel.

We stayed at the Abbey Lodge for a few days so we could visit family. Absolutely first class hotel & excellent service. All of the staff were really friendly, helpful & extremely attentive. Rooms bright, clean & very well finished; the bathrooms are well maintained & very good. Shower is one of the best I've had. Breakfast was extensive & the choice available put some hotels to shame. Used the snack menu in the evening & it was freshly cooked, beautifully presented & well served.
If you need some where to stay in Shipley this is the place to be.

Room Tip: Rooms are all good & there are some disabled access rooms on the ground floor

Lovely place rooms spotless staff friendly and helpful, wonderful breakfast and great prices only thing that lets it down is there is no evening meals or bar snacks Friday to Sunday, thankfully local restaurants are within walking distance
Due to this there is very little atmosphere in the bar area

Staff very friendly. Room spotless and well furnished with spa bath and 32 inch TV. Our room was in basement with small window without a view but as staying just one night this was not a problem.
The breakfast was excellent. Being a Saturday the bar did not serve food.
We arrived on a very warm night and wanted to sit and drink outside. The only outside seating area consisted of 2 chairs and a table on the car park. This was clearly a smoking area. The front gardens were well kept and outside seating would no doubt increase the bar takings considerably.

Room Tip: Ask for room at front above basement level if staying more than a night.
