    Historical Traveler Reviews De Vere Oulton Hall

    Valentine's Weekend Treat

    from

    I stayed at Oulton Hall 12th and 13th February. We upgraded our room to an executive room at an additional cost of 25 per night to the regular room rate, which is well worth the extra!! Massive king size bed - spacious room overlooking the gardens.

    The reception and public areas are very grand, almost palacial! Wasnt so keen on the pool area, with Blayds bar overlooking the swimmers which I thought was slightly strange!

    The Bronte restaurant was excellent, faultless food, well worthy of its excellent reputation. Located slightly out of the city centre, and not ideally placed for shopping trips, the hotel is perfect for a total relaxation break!!

    Bar is very pricey... be warned!

    A treat

    from

    My husband and I had a lovely time here last year. The hotel staff couldn't do enough for us - even to the extent of loaning me some items of makeup from the beaticians as I had left mine at home (that saved me from having to use room service for dinner!) I would say use this hotel if you want a relaxing,romantic stay rather than as a base for sightseeing or shopping. Just pad around using the facilites and enjoy a superb meal in the Bronte restaurant and you will leave feeling thoroughy pampered.

    Lovely!

    from

    Stayed all too briefly here for work - after a late arrival had a stunning meal in the restaurant, service and food were top notch, bar was lovely complete with hotel cat! Excellent nights sleep and a delicious breakfast, only regret is we didn't have time to enjoy all the facilities! Highly recommended!

    Classic luxury hotel - go on spoil yourself!

    from

    Oulton Hall is much better than any other De Vere hotels we've encountered. Overall it is a beautiful but expensive retreat worthy of its 5 stars. Best enjoyed when you've secured a good deal thru late rooms or the like. The golf course next to the hotel (a muni not owned by De Vere) is very well kept and a snip at 11 for 18 holes. Go on treat yourself, we got a good deal and saved plenty on the room rate so that we could eat ourselves silly and waddle around the grounds like gods.

    Pretty decent...worth a visit

    from

    Stayed here for a wedding which was excellent. The grounds were amazing and the hotel is really quiet but a bit far from city center. The late night room service menu was a bit expensive and the food tasted like it had been nuked in a microwave. Breakfast was execellent but extremely busy. Overall had a nice time and if I ever come back then I will try the infamous bronte restaurant.

    Wedding Nightmare!

    from

    When planning my perfect wedding I looked at various venues for the actual 'wedding night'. We were going to have the ceremony at Oulton Hall but the dates we required were fully booked. Thank Goodness! When we arrived after our fantastic day at Woolley Hall we were given the keys to what should have been the most romantic night of our lives. Instead as we entered the supposedly 5 star non-smoking room we found a dirty towel on the floor and the room absolutely stank of smoke. The windows were fully open and the fan was on, but it made no difference - my dissapointment was overwelming and I sat on the bed wanting to cry. I immediately composed myself and rang reception explaining that we specifically asked for a non-smoking room. We were told that the room WAS a non-smoking one but that it can't be helped if people do smoke in there! Apparently there were no other rooms available. As I contemplated spending my wedding night at home I sent my new husband down to see what he could do. He came back with the same reply - they could do nothing! Traumatised by this point I scooped up my wedding dress and marching down to reception blonking my wedding bouquet on the desk. 'This is supposed to be my wedding night - we booked a non-smoking room which sticks of smoke, you say that there are no other rooms available and to top it off when we walked in there was a towel on the floor!' The receptionist nonchalantly replied, ' ooh that's not very good for a 5 star hotel is it?' 'No its not!' I said. Eventually after much complaining we were finally given the room of another bridal couple who had not yet arrived, but which didn't have the priviledge of any view. Instead we had a a view of a wall - but atleast it was odour free! Exhausted after our ranglings we finally got to bed about 2.30am - our wedding night ruined. In the morning the paper didn't arrive, we didn't receive enough milk, and we got the wrong breakfast order. In total it was a complete shambles. For a 5 star hotel on what should have been the best night of my life I was more than dissapointed but also upset and angry. Dispite mentioning all this on the comment card no-one wrote to us to apologise or anything. I would seriously reconsider staying at this hotel. It ruined what could have been the happiest day of my life!

    Magical Place

    from

    Stayed in Oulton Hall during October 2003. The hotel itself is beautiful, full of old world charm. The gardens are wonderful. It is a very magical place. Rooms were clean and spacious. It has lots of excellent facilities - golf course, leisure centre, etc. Buffet breakfast is very good. We stayed for 3 nights and loved every second of it. We will be back !

    Beautiful hotel in luxurious surroundings

    from

    Just stayed at De Vere Oulton Hall and was very impressed! A beautiful stately home style hotel up a long driveway with golf course on either side. The entrance hall is stunning-you feel like royalty as you enter!

    Rooms beautifully decorated and you get duvets on your bed rather than sheets and blankets. Had breakfast in the main restaurant which is beautifully furnished. Choice of cooked breakfast, continental buffet breakfast or fruit buffet. There was also a superior option of smoked salmon and eggs which you had to order. The leisure club has a smallish pool, sunbed, gym, whirlpool spa bath, sauna (which has views over the hillside and golf course) and steam room. Also had a manicure in the beauty salon which is luxurious but rather highly priced. We relied on public transport for travelling into Leeds which is frequent and the buses stop on the main road just outside the hotel. A single trip cost 1.10 and the 6 mile journey took about 25 mins. A taxi from Leeds train station back to Oulton Hall cost 9-12. Would definately recommend this hotel to my clients (I am a Travel Consultant) and will return myself! Perfect luxury retreat for chilling out, but useful too if you would like to visit Leeds for shopping or nighlife, etc.

    Heaven On Earth!

    from

    Myself and my wife stayed at Oulton Hall in January 2003 for a weekend break... We usually stay at 3 or 4 star hotels around the country, but decided to 'splash out' for a 5 star hotel, and got a bargain from the Internet - well, it was January! The place is magnificient - decor, staff, food is excellent. Rooms very roomy, with all facilities.

    Swimming pool for relaxing very good. Stay here if you can!

    This hotel is relaxing and set in grounds which screed out traffic noise so you get a great nights sleep. Rooms are really comfortable, staff helpful and polite.

    Pretty lazy start to the day, and as the sun was shining decided just to go for a walk around the village. Pretty little place, the old village still has the village green and adjacent village hall. A couple of pubs, and we did a big loop around. Back for lunch and a quiet afternoon. Haven't had many if these relaxing days. Not often you see pumpkins in the UK, I'd never eaten them til I came to Aus, so think these must be for ...

    ... except perhaps at specialist liquor stores), instead the lower priced selections are from Chili, California, and Australia! So, they have to travel much further to get to the shelf. We went for a walk through some of the town, never tiring of seeing cobblestone streets and old, well preserved buildings. There was a market on so we bought a few things for our home cooked meal ...

    Today we went to York and went to the Jorvik Viking centre. There was lots of interesting information at the Viking centre about Vikings. We learnt that the children drank beer because the water was not safe to drink. We got to go a ride through a Viking village and we learnt that the ...

    ... Finally the breakaway group reached us and the crowd went wild, a few support cars then eventually the peloton. At least another 100 cars last afterwards....it's just massive! After that we made our way back to the spectator Hun in Hebden and watched the last 50km on the big screen with about 3000 others. With the race done, we went back to the house, whipped up some dinner before heading back for a few drinks at the fox and goose. A great day and totally well worth the ...
