When we first visited the incredible Queens Hotel the weather was horrific, in fact treacherous. The wind and rain were torrential on the journey over, followed the heaviest snow. It was so bad we decided on the Saturday we had better not hang about and set off back home very early in the day. As it happens we were right to do so, had we set on an hour later we would never have made through the country roads home.
Now don’t get me wrong, apart from the weather we had a wonderful time at the Queens in fact I would go as far to say we all fell in love with the warmth of Jaquie, her team and the incredible history and atmosphere of this iconic hotel. We were also very lucky that Jaquie had booked us a day training with the Leeds Rhinos, so we had an excuse to go back and visit Leeds in the summer.
