BEST WESTERN Rogerthorpe Manor Hotel.

Perfectly placed near Pontefract!

The BEST WESTERN PLUS Rogerthorpe Manor Hotel sits just a few miles from the historic Roman town of Pontefract. As such, you'll not only enjoy the peace and quiet of the country, but you'll have easy access to other places of interest around West Yorkshire.

Dating from 1610 and therefore steeped in 400 hundred years of history, the hotel is a wonderful rural retreat, with stylish (sometimes four poster) rooms, glorious surroundings, an impressive lawned garden and an inviting Jacobean Pub all adding to the calming atmosphere.

Dear Guest, I would firstly like to thank you for your review regarding your recent visit and I appreciate the time you took to write it. I am sorry to hear about your disappointment, there aren’t many times when we can not genuinely accommodate what new bride and grooms are looking for on their perfect day but this time it would seem we have failed to offer you what you wanted.

Dear Guest, I would firstly like to thank you for your review regarding your recent stay and I appreciate the time you took to write this. Thank you for your kind words and I'm happy to hear you’ve had a pleasant stay. I am sorry to hear you had trouble securing a table for your meal, our Jacobean is very popular with locals and we do get full rather quickly so as you suggested it would be advisable to book in advance or we do offer other dining areas but these are for residents only hence the quiet atmosphere. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back. If I can be of any further assistance then please feel to contact me at the Hotel. Kindest Regards.
