“Absolutely blown away”

Lauren & Ash, TripAdvisor, December 2016

'The hotel is tucked away in Sowerby Bridge and the landscape is absolutely stunning. The hotel itself is a shabby chic paradise; the decor is simply beautiful. The room was a fantastic size and at a great rate. Very quiet too, which was much appreciated for a great nights sleep in the comfy bed! We visit West Yorkshire fairly frequently and will absolutely be stopping here again.'
