The hotel’s description reads: “Dating back in parts to the 1800s, Gomersal Park Hotel was at one point owned by Leeds United footballing legend John Charles. Purchased by our seller client in 1982 as a 50 bedroom hotel, it was later extended in the early 2000s with the addition of a further 50 bedrooms. However, in 2015, fourteen of the existing rooms were utilised to make way for the superb Dream Spa, one of the finest in the north.”
