Be warned, if you are booking to bring your family pet, they only accept them in the basic rooms. Expedia do NOT tell you this information and accepted my booking for a deluxe. It's only because I contacted the hotel direct that I found out.
The Hotel were fantastic, and swapped our rooms and waived the dog fee, however, I do feel let down by Expedia.
The basic room was comfortable but had significant mold around the bath and was desperately in need of a ferurbishment
Other useful facts are that the dog rooms are on the second floor and dogs are not allowed in the bar, this makes life difficult if you are on your own
The staff were very helpful in letting us sit outside the breakfast room with the dogs and made up the table especially for us each morning
Location for both the conference and the many excellent walks around Yorkshire couldn't be better, the gardens are a delight and I can't stress enough how helpful the staff are at this hotel
