BEST WESTERN Rogerthorpe Manor Hotel.

Perfectly placed near Pontefract!

The BEST WESTERN 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.
