Lovely room, had a great stay.

Great place, but not easy to find!

The hotel is advertised as The Wheldale Hotel but the signage is The Boot Room.

You automatically assume it's a pub and not a pub/hotel. We stopped and asked for directions at The Boot Room to be told that we were actually at the hotel. That said, the accommodation was lovely and the staff (and pub customers) were all really friendly. It's not somewhere you'd go unless you were going to a game at Castleford Tigers (the ground is directly opposite) or you were using it as a base to go somewhere.

large room with a wow factor...

Lovely supersize bathroom, and modern bedroom, which comes as a surprise as you enter through a very ordinary pub, and then an external fire escape type metal staircase

Loved It A Great Place To Stay

This has to be the most friendly place I have ever stayed in the UK.

The Hotel and Bar staff were amazing and could not do enough for us. The Locals that drank in the Bar invited us to play pool and treated us like we were their best mates. The Rooms are great and very clean. Yorkshire Hospitality at its very best. Love the Place.

Great value and service

Wheldale was always good value but it has really improved in the last 6 months.

I really enjoyed my recent stay - everything was of a high standard and the team are really interested helping you to enjoy your stay. Recommended.

Friendly Welcome

Second Friday in a row stayed here for Rugby.

Recognised by all staff and genuinely made to feel like a regular. Room was clean and comfortable. Only thing missing was a television, but had been spoilt previous week because I'd been upgraded to an ensuite twin room.

Excellent Value for Money. Hosts and Staff cannot do enough for guests

Stayed Friday Night due to Rugby Match and was treated well from the minute I walked in.

Even when I couldn't work out how to get the shower working, I was dealt with politely and courteously at all times. Will definitely stay again, Hosts are trying to improve the Accomadation, but if you can see past that is a very good Budget Hotel. Serve a decent pint as well.

Great value.

This is a great hotel to stay in if your going to watch the rugby or visiting surrounding areas.

Friendly owners, clean and tidy room. Had breakfast but not a cooked one but looked good so will be having one next time i visit. Thanks again to Paul and Donna.

Wheldale Hotel/The Boot Room

Stayed for 2 nights due to being on a 2 day course at Castleford Tigers ground (directly opposite) so couldn't have been in a better position.

Welcome was good, and the room we were in was a new extension - twin room. The room itself had a neutral but attractive decor. A spacious en-suite room with shower (overhead shower and a removeable head) was connected and a large wall mounted TV plus tea/coffe facilities. The room was positioned above the bar so the speakers for the TV's were able to be heard but not sufficiently to cause problems falling alseep. Basic cold breakfast (selection of cereals/toast/fruit juice/tea or coffee) was included in the room's price although if ordered a cooked breakfast is available. The price paid (approx £24 per night per person) is a steal and the twin room should be charged higher. The location of the pub is away from the towen centre and Xscape (plenty of restaurants at the Ski slope) is only a 10 minute taxi ride (approx £4).
