My husband and I stayed one night with friends. On arrival the car park fees were going to cost us £10 to stay over night,until the small writing on the sign outside states free parking for residents. The receptionists gave my husband a parking slip to put on the dashboard. We stayed on the 2nd floor. The room was very... More

This hotel ( a few minutes walk from the Railway Station) has been refurbished and has extremely comfortable rooms. The hotel is well managed and the friendly staff try hard to ensure a successful stay. The hotel is convenient for a visit to the Wakefield Sculpture Park and the new Hepworth Museum, which can be reached via the Free Town... More

For the price, the location, the atmosphere and a few palatable wines it was superb. The staff were wonderful chatty but not intrusive and all clearly enjoying themselves without it coming to the detriment of their work. It downstairs was kept in good contemporary condition and really was rather smart in places. The bar was heaving when we arrived but... More

I have seldom been in a Hotel, anywhere, where the service has been so friendly and where they try so hard for you...they really couldn't do enough for you and nothing was too much trouble. The food in the Sloanes restaurant, attached to and actually part of the York House, where breakfast is served, is of really high quality, clearly... More

I can't really decide on this hotel. It's in a great location, next to the railway station. The room was big enough with a good bathroom. On the other hand the hotel itself felt a bit neglected, the outlook from the room was depressing and it was unusual to be asked for payment up front in cash with no receipt... More

Stayed here with 13 friends. Great location, just around the corner from westgate station and it takes you literally 2/3 minutes to walk into the centre to enjoy the Wakefield nightlife. Rooms are nicely furnished and clean. Rooms haven't got air con but was a fan in the room which was fine. Good size mini fridge in room which was... More

My room was neat and newly refurbished and the hotel is very close (2 mins walk) to Westgate station. But I didn't feel anyone really cared about the hotel - there was dust in the room and a sad collection of five different coat hangers. Outside in the corridor chairs and foldaway beds were stacked up. Breakfast was served in... More

I really liked this hotel. Its right next to railway station and a short walk into town. I booked a single room which the hotel had given me a free upgrade to a double. The room was clean and comfortable. The tea tray was bulging, there was a really good fan in the room, the shower was fab, the staff... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights on business. Perfect location for the train station and shpps. Not so sure about the hotel though. First the good points-the room was clean and had a fridge/mini bar which was useful. There was also a large fan which was absolutely essential as there was np air con. Staff were helpful and friendly.... More

Wakefield is a good night out, and the York House Hotel is fine (I have stayed here twice before over the past 12 months) if what you're looking for is somewhere to crash for the evening after a night out on the beer, then it's ideally situated for that, within staggering distance from everywhere, as the noises during the night...
