Historical Traveler Reviews Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa Leeds
High quality hotel
This is a modern hotel with contemporary decor, very attractively furnished. Rooms have good facilities, and excellent soundproofing keeps out noise from the surrounding roads and motorway. Effective air conditioning keeps the room aired and at the right temperature.
Worthy of note, if you book on inclusive terms you can choose anything at any price from the a la carte menu, and there are no supplements.
Staff here efficient and friendly. The spa is also good, with an excellent large swimming pool.
A good choice on the city outskirts, but conveniently near the M1 Leeds/York link.
Spectacular - Best in the UK if not beyond
I've stayed at the Thorpe Park on a number of occasions, and cannot find any faults. This has to be my all time favourite hotel, and I'm really fussy! The outside appearance of the hotel is a little deceptive, as its located just off the motorway, it looks like a premier travelinn / travelodge kind of build, but it couldn't be more different inside. The rooms are all executive with huge double beds, big white duvets, cd player, tv, seperate shower and bath, bathrobes etc. you name it. Room service is also lovely because they have normal foods which are so tasty, like cheese on toast with heinz beans!!! The hotel is extremely modern yet retains a sense of comfort and cosiness. The leisure club is also immaculate and the pool is nice and warm. I'm dissapointed to say I haven't had a breakfast there yet as I've slept in everytime because the beds are so comfortable, but I'll make a determined effort during my next visit! The staff are superb, and very attentive. Congratulations to Gordon (General Manager) and his team on constantly maintaining the highest of standard - it is there hard work that has created such an excellent hotel.
Stayed at this hotel just this past weekend for our 10th wedding anniversary.
THe htoel itself on the inside is stunning with real log fires which makes the whole place so welcoming. The room was spacious and very well equipped not to mention spotlessly clean.
We ate in the restaurant on both evenings and the food was good, although to be honest, I did think that it was slightly overpriced for the quantity and quality, but that is really a very, very small almost insignificant gripe.
The best think, bar none, about this hotel has to be the wonderful staff and special mention and thanks must go to Louise on reception who ensured that our stay was as special as we could have hoped for. Also a big thank you to Kim on the bar who was a delight and why that girl hasnt been promoted god only knows, she should be running the place!
Finally thanks to Matt (laugh a minute), Michael and Dominick in the restaurant, Kate and Clare in the bar and Chrissie and Sarah on reception. You have all ensured that our weekend not only met but far exceeded our expectations.
WE WILL BE BACK!!!
Loved this hotel
Stayed at Thorpe Park for one night and I think this may be one of the best hotels I've stayed at in the UK.
The rooms were large, modern and very well equipped. The service v. good at all times. The restaurant is great with a full choice of the a la carte menu included in the DBB rate - which is most unusual.
The spa area is just fantastic - we lounged round the pool in the sunshine and had various beauty treatments - we were all very impressed.
I would heartily recommend this hotel.
My wife and I had the misfortune of dining at Thorpe park on last weekend, the food was below mediocre and the service poor and non-attentive. Our bedroom was standard, when we eventually got to our room after we were moved 3 times due to things in teh rooms not working. I would not consider this hotel again.
The Finest Hotel in Leeds
Thorpe Park is just the most outstanding hotel in the whole area. I just had to write,The staff are wonderful! I just wish I had of found it sooner!I used to stay at the De Vere hotel at Oulton. . I will not be returning in a hurry now that i have found this new retreat!Congratulations to their team of hard working dedicated and well trained staff, the service is exceptional and it really makes a huge difference.
The most friendly hotel
Welcoming lobby, lovely rooms but most of all wonderful staff. I look forward to returning......
What an amazing place, the rooms are fantastic, with everything you could possibly want and more, the food is great the staff couldn't be more helpful and a special thankyou to louise who looks after reception. nothing is too much trouble. didn't get chance to try the spa last time , not enough time but will try this weekend. If i had one negative comment to make it would be there aren't enough suites available, as each time we try to book one they already full........but the standard room are pretty special anyway
Everything about this Hotel is fantastic. The rooms a spacious and well equipped, the serivice was fantastic and the meals were superb. The spa area was very relaxing and was a great asset to the end of the day. We would definately be making a return visit!

... way to spend my time than work or studying for my exams, I'm pretty concerned that one of the gaps (such as the train ticket we can’t seem to book no matter what we try) is going to mess the whole thing up and it will be like a game of Jenga. The whole trip will come crashing down around me. I never had much skill at Jenga. One of the main things I insisted on for the trip was reaching China without flying. I’ve ...
