Five Rise Locks Hotel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Bingley
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 December 2011

Spent two nights in December whilst visiting family "oop North" Chose for location and good reviews. We were not disappointed. The room was quirkily-shaped, being in the turret, very well furnished with good quality fabrics and comfy bed. Despite two very cold nights, it was nicely warm & cosy. Lashings of hot water and thick, fluffy towels, warm off the heated rail.
The restaurant food & service was excellent and well-presented at a reasonable price.
We would definitely go back, but would request an upstairs room, simply because sleeping downstairs feels odd.
The only criticism was the bathroom floor, which was cold quarry tiles, completely at odds with the luxury feel of the room.

Room Tip: Room 8 has the cold bathroom floor

We recently stayed for the second time at the Five Rise Locks Hotel, and the visit confirmed our view that this is a great base for our occasional visits to West Yorkshire. If impersonal and soulless chain hotels are your idea of hotel heaven, this probably isn't the place for you, but we felt at home the moment we stepped inside.Our room was comfortable, well-equipped and spotlessly clean, the food good, and the service friendly and efficient. As a bonus, our stay coincided with one of the regular wine evenings, which was really good fun and excellent value.

Overall, nothing to find fault with whatsoever.

Overall good experience. The hotel feels and looks more like large B & B. Clean room, good size for an old building like this. Free wi-fi in room was a big plus. Breakfast was traditional English, good quality, local and fresh items.

This is really located in a low density suburban, rather than rural setting. There is a lot of walking trails near the hotel, and Bradford and the Yorkshire Dales are relatively short drives. There aren't a lot of lodging options around, though, and this definitely worked for us.

The only con is one that goes with the territory, could hear other guests coming and going in the morning, doors slamming closed, etc.

This was disappointing as it is an older building and could be truly gorgeous. Unfortunately the best use hasn't been made of the period property. The large bedroom was clean but had no character or features that make it memorable. Friendly family who run it. Good cooked food at breakfast but really cheap paper napkins let it down. Also, no "real" coffee - only instant available! Apparently does lots of good private functions but accommodation needs attention to make it other than blah.

Dear outoftown,

Thanks for the review, unfortunately in the 60's most of the original Victorian features were removed. We have tried to keep all that was left in and by mixing furniture old and new we try to create an ambience. Glad you enjoyed the Breakfast, we take on board your comments re coffee and napkins.
We do cater for functions and Jacks Hundreth on Monday was a great success.
Many thanks
Richard and Margaret

We have just returned from a two night stay at this family run hotel and were very impressed with the friendly helpful service we received. We ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent and deserves the AA Rosette status it has been awarded.
