Hotel Review: Best Western PLUS Milford Hotel + Watermill Restaurant @ Leeds, United Kingdom

During a recent business trip to Yorkshire, I stayed at the Best Western PLUS Milford Hotel. Being a business trip not much sightseeing could be done, so most of my time was spent in the hotel and its restaurant, Watermill. It was a rather pleasant stay at the hotel, with rooms being comfy and surprisingly, food at the restaurant was consistently good throughout the stay. I later found out that Watermill Restaurant has a pretty good reputation in the area. The hotel itself is situated about 30 minutes drive from the cities of Leeds and Yorkshire and on a main road. Not too sure about the rooms facing the main road but with mine on the opposite side it was unaffected by any sort of noise. All rooms also come with complimentary wifi.

The room. Nice, comfy bed

The toilets are nice and modern with a nice addition of heated floors. Gilchrist and Soames toiletries are provided for hotel guests

Breakfast in the hotel was a great affair. Guests have a choice of Continental and English Breakfast, with locally sourced ingredients. Naturally, being a big lover of the traditional English breakfast it was a no-brainer for me. You get to choose from a huge list of items cooked to order including eggs (fried, scrambled or poached), bacon, sausages, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms, smoked fish (salmon, haddock, or Yorkshire kipper), black pudding, hash browns, baked beans and Yorkshire honey in addition to the buffet spread. It was rather nice being able to mix and match different items on the breakfast menu each morning.

Dinner at the restaurant was another highlight with the food coming out of the kitchen consistent in terms of quality and taste. Some items stood out more than others but in total dining at the Watermill was a good experience with few complaints. Standouts from the menu are the steak, fish and chips, scallops and the sticky toffee pudding.

Yorkshire Dales ribeye steak, hand-cut chips and peppercorn sauce (£16.45)

Duck confit with mashed potato and spinach (£10.95)

Sticky Toffee Pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream

Traditional Black Sheep Ale Battered Haddock and Chips (£13.95)

 Scallops on Provençale sauce (£4.95)

Slow Cooked Pork Belly served with puy lentils, roasted apple and bacon red wine jus (£10.95)

Location: Best Western Milford Hotel, Great North Road, Peckfield, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS25 5LQ, United Kingdom.
