Hotel is a bit tired looking in places but more than makes up for this with very friendly and helpful staff, large clean and comfortable rooms and free use of the fitness centre with swimming pool, sauna, steam room and gym equipment. Also free parking. Great location for Saltaire, Shipley and Bingley. We stayed here on a Saturday night when...

We loved everything about it, the price, the huge room, the fact that it was a bath and not a shower, the amazing choice for the continental breakfast, which was available from 4am-11am! Fab fitness suite and spa facilities available free of charge were an added...

Nice clean big rooms with friendly staff. Make your own continental breakfast is good with plenty of choice, free parking and the wee one loved the swimming pool. Only issue is there is nobody on reception at night until 8.30am, we had a long wait getting our keys when we arrived and then in the morning we went to breakfast...

We stayed here as we were attending a party at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they even show you to your room. The rooms were HUGE! We had booked an adjoining room with an interconnecting door for my teens, honestly it was size of a small apartment! Very spacious and we had two bathrooms!! There was...

I visited for a family party in the function room. I stayed in a single room and it was a nice size. The function room is nice and the light breakfast which is included was good although all self service. I think the rooms just need a bit of an update but the staff are very helpful. I would have...

You have to put a notice on your door to have your bed made. It's a joke. Tires. Expensive. The food next door at the MOO is rubbish. I had the ribs, home smoked blah blah, worse than Iceland. Don't waste your money. Also a deposit needed for the pool table LOL money get stuck in the fus ball table....

We stayed in a family room for a weekend. The rooms are a lovely and big and we all slept well. We used the pool attached to the hotel which our girls enjoyed. The buffet breakfast was a welcome start to the day, with lots of choice. The staff were welcoming and friendly. It has the Moo Restaurant next door...

Have stayed here a couple of times at this family run hotel and been given a large room, which was great. The downside was the whole hotel inside looks very tired and the bedroom was in desperate need of decorating. The bathroom was adequate but not sparkling with paint peeling off. The bed never looked pristine when made up in...
