Staying in Holiday Inn Ossett for 2 months with work. The staff are very friendly, and couldn't be any more helpful. Room's are great and extremely clean. There is a huge variety for breakfast. So far my stay has been great!

We stayed for one night in order to visit the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and the Barbara Hepworth Museum - the hotel is well placed for both, each being about a ten minute drive. We had a dinner, bed and breakfast deal, which was very good value. We really enjoyed our evening meal in an almost empty restaurant. The steaks were... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of a National Express holiday. I was very disappointed by it. I must admit the staff were friendly enough and really helpful towards the kids that were staying and made adjustments to the meal to accommodate them. The food however for the adults was poor. The soup starter was very watery. The meat... More

I've been staying in this hotel on and off for the past few years and it makes a great base for me when working in Wakefield. The hotel is clean, tidy and the staff are all very pleasant. I tend to have the room service instead of sitting in the restaurant, which looks more like an airport lounge to me.... More
