A hidden gem in West Yorkshire
Posted Aug 10, 2011 on Orbitz
Other than repeated difficulties we had finding the hotel upon returning from our daily genealogical research outings in the area, we had the MOST wonderful experience at this hotel.
The rooms were well-appointed and clean. The food--both the menu and preparation--was of the highest quality (i.e., what I might expect for a large city restaurant, but found in this small town on the outskirts of Leeds). It was SO good, we ended up eating almost every meal there during our stay! Homemade soups, fresh fish dishes and salads were particularly well done.
The staff was universally professional, helpful, warm and gracious. They helped us host a very successful visit by fifth cousins we had never previously met: providing us with coffee, tea and relative privacy in the lovely little conservatory area, followed by lunch for six in the Bistro.
Unfortunately, we only had two days to spend in the area during our trip to the UK. We would have loved staying there longer. It was our best accommodations, by far, in the 12-day trip.
