From time to time a really exciting newcomer bursts on to the boutique hotel scene. The latest opening to quicken the pulse is that of Manor House Lindley, a golden-stone Grade II-listed Georgian residence that makes a distinctive and sophisticated place to stay. Any one of the 11 luxurious bedrooms and suites – divided into Gold, Platinum and Diamond categories (plus The Apartment) – will provide the perfect escape from the humdrum of everyday life. Each has the fine proportions of classical Georgian architecture, glamorous, individual decoration using designer wallpapers and sumptuous furnishings, dazzling white linen, a state-of-the-art bathroom and a consummate attention to detail. The choice of restaurants would not be amiss in a much larger hotel: the Clocktower Lounge for an indulgent afternoon tea and evening drinks and, for dinner, the atmospheric Lantern Room, relaxed Kitchen or, on Fridays and Saturdays, the decadent den, Lindley Cellars. A grown-up hotel, where your only problem will be tearing yourself away.
Manor House Lindley is perfectly located to explore the best attractions West Yorkshire has to offer. Take a stroll in the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, the UK’s leading open-air gallery, visit the village of Saltaire which displays one of the largest collections of paintings from David Hockney.
Offering three separate eateries in the hotel, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Manor House Lindley. Enjoy a fine-dining experience in the critically acclaimed Lantern Room or grab a coffee and cake in the biophilic bistro; The Kitchen. Alternatively, share a charcuterie board and sip on cocktails in Lindley Cellars, the prohibition-era style bar.
Manor House Lindley is situated exactly halfway between Manchester and Leeds, meaning that guests can have their pick of the fantastic shopping opportunities in both of these Northern metropolises within 30 minutes’ drive. Just a short drive away is Halifax’s Piece Hall, a three-storey open-air piazza bustling with bars, restaurants, cafés, and independent shops.
