Lovely Hotel

Lovely old place so much better than the new style places, but it is a very old building and doing to much can ruin it the look of it...Stayed for one night in a double room all you need was in there TV tea and coffee on suite bathroom plenty of storage large comfy bed...Breakfast of which there was plenty included tea/coffee, cereal, juices, toast, fruit, yogurt and of course a lovely fry up...

Character hotel

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.
