Built of solid Yorkshire stone this was once (as the name
suggests), a golf club house until the M62 cut the course in
half. In contrast to the very modern Park Inn this is a very
traditional style property, impressively run by very friendly
staff. There is a large, bright restaurant, a cosy lounge and
52 spotlessly maintained en-suite bedrooms, each with TV,
direct-dial telephone, hairdryer and hospitality tray.
Holmfirth (Last of the Summer Wine location) is just a
short distance away, we call there on our way to Manchester,
just 25 miles away.
We also spend a full day in Liverpool, the charming spa town
of Harrogate and nearby Bronte Parsonage. In the evening we
return to a welcome three-course dinner with a little
entertainment on two nights.
