I prefer to stay away from chain hotels and try to find the independent hotels and B&Bs, so was pleased to find Farnley Tower.
The hotel is in a fantastic building though the changes to make this a hotel are just starting to show some wear and tear, maybe this just adds to the ambiance. Sited close to the city centre and within walking distance as sated before walking back is up hill. Breakfast is acceptable and as expected. I do think they could, especially considering room rate, go the extra mile and use higher quality bacon/sausage/orange juice. This would transform breakfast into a true feast. All in all a decent stay.
Friendly staff and dogs were welcomed
We enjoyed our stay and the breakfast waitress remembered we wanted gluten free bread - these little things helped make our visit one we would do again.
You do need to be able to walk into the city up a hill to the hotel though.
