Being the UK’s third-largest city, you’d be right to expect big things from Leeds and, true to form, this West Yorkshire gem doesn’t disappoint. Whether you’re here for the historic sights, to take in some contemporary art or to indulge with a day of retail therapy, Leeds effortlessly delivers. Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa is well-placed just a 15-minute drive from Leeds’ railway station, making it an excellent base for some time exploring this charismatic city.
With a relaxed and cosy air, Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa offers an undeniably comfy stay just minutes from the city centre. The serene spa is sure to tempt you back from a day exploring – that’s if you manage to tear yourself away in the first place. What’s more, a laid-back restaurant and bar showcases the best of the locale’s produce, so you needn’t go far to sample the area’s authentic flavours.
Modern yet cosy, Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa’s Signature rooms are sumptuous and comfortable. Neutral walls combine with plush woods to create an elegant ambience, complete with all the mod-cons you’ll need for a relaxing stay.
Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa’s restaurant and bar are the proud holder of an AA Rosette, with a menu that combines the best of the locale’s ingredients. Ilkley meats and Dumouchel breads sit alongside award-winning ice cream from Lowna Dairy, creating a unique menu that really represents the area. You can enjoy the hotel’s culinary creations in the relaxed ambience of the bar, the restaurant, in the courtyard or on the terrace, which overlooks the gardens.
You’ll find a large indoor pool, a whirlpool, sauna and steam room here, alongside a generous range of treatments, each designed to revive and rejuvenate. There’s also a well equipped gym to hand and a range of exercise classes on offer, which are complimentary to all guests of the hotel.
Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa is located just a 15-minute drive from Leeds’ railway station. You’ll find the Temple Newsam Golf Club just two miles away and the Royal Armouries Museum is a short drive from the hotel. From here, you’re also well placed to discover Harrogate, York and The Dales. Nearby attractions include the heritage site of Harewood House and Gardens, Tropical World and Xscape Yorkshire, which boasts an indoor ski slope, 4D golf, bowling and even a climbing wall.
How to Get There
Girls spa weekend away. Good sized rooms, excellent food and pleasant staff. Hotel is well located for motorway access and Yorkshire amenities. Congratulations to who ever picked all of the art work, large bold and some lovely black and white pics of the area. Only criticism, the wine list is remarkably overpriced so take your own!
There were 8 of us out on a fun, relaxing birthday overnight stay. Staff just could not have been more helpful and accommodating, letting us leave our bags in one of the rooms even though we arrived very early. Wonderful experience from start to finish. Wifi not great but to be honest it didn't bother us. Beds & bedding were very comfortable and really appreciated.
Great treatments in the spa and despite it being a very busy Saturday we were made to feel very welcome and all had a wonderful time. Many thanks to you all.
Me and my partner had stayed here this week for our 10 year anniversary. This was the second time that we had stayed at this hotel, we went back based on the spa facilities on offer as we were looking for somewhere to just relax for a couple of days away from the kids :)
We spoke with several members of staff throughout our stay and found them all to be extremely friendly and genuinely nice people. Room was lovely, with the bathroom having a bathtub and shower separate. Lovely wide bed with a nice big screen tele. Bar staff gave us an ice bucket and champagne flutes to take back to our room for our champagne.
Location of the hotel is very accessible from the M1, around a 3 minute drive away but not so close that you can hear any of the vehicles from the hotel itself and there is a retail park a 5 minute walk away to pick up any small necessaries from the shops on offer.
hospitality was premium, front desk, restaurant, domestic, excellent.
the pool and spa are well serviced, food is good, beds are comfortable and rooms easy to get to, no huge long corridors, everything is in good condition, a pat on the back for the management, staff are tip top, every one I met. Highly recommended indeed.
Would highly recommend a stay here, bed & breakfast with three course evening meal, with a hearty breakfast the next morning, also included in the room rate is the full use of the spa, gym, and swimming pool for the duration of your stay, the staff are so amazing and accommodating, they make you feel relaxed, excellent value and excellent facilities.
