TravelPod Member ReviewsWaterton Park Hotel Wakefield
Waterton Park Hotel feels like a miniature castle along with its own moat. They offer 65 ensuite bedrooms with rich velvety accents throughout. Most rooms have views over the surrounding golf course.
The hotel also has a restaurant, pool, spa & sauna which I highly recommend.
