“Simple but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Easy to find & excellent service. Toby Carvery next door whcih is fine for eating. Not much else in the area but Leeds only 20 mins away.
Our room was clean, functional & very good value. No bath only shower though.
The free breakfast was a bit dissappointing through. No bacon or fried egss & limited cereals & fruit. We went for the Toby breakfast (£4) on the 2nd morning.
Overall for the price this was a good hotel, exceeded the offerings from Prem Inn or Travelodge for example. Staff were exemplary.

Room Tip: Back of the hotel is much quieter - there's a busy road out front.

I work away on business on a regular basis and this hotel is close to one of my sites of work. I had not stayed here before till last week but was thoroughly impressed on every level. Good size car park, easy to find and near main motorway links. Spotlessly clean hotel. Friendly and helpful reception staff, the lady at reception went out of her way to welcome me and carried one of my heavy bags for me to my room. The rooms are spacious, newly decorated with very comfy beds and lovely quality bed linen, you won't find a horrid blanket here. En suite again was spotless. Wifi is free and works quickly and the Toby Carvery across the road where you can get a evening meal is totally friendly (I am a female business traveller and felt totally comfortable eating on my own) They have a stunning carvery and its £5.99 and the food is lovely. Having stayed in some top hotels across the world, for the price this is up there for me and I cannot praise this enough. I will stay only here going forward. You will not be disappointed, book in total confidence that this will be a lovely stay for you.

I have stayed here on several occasions on business and it has met with my expectations each time

Check-in is fast and staff super friendly (parking is a bit crowded on occasion but there is a pub next door if the hotel section is full). Rooms are all fairly close to reception, on the same level or up/down stairs.

Rooms are very nice, this is a fairly new place and the décor and standard of equipment is good. Beds are comfortable with a choice of pillow, there is a work desk and the bathrooms are clean with good showers. Wi-Fi is free throughout and reasonably fast, not the best I've had but not bad.

The hotel does not do evening meals but, as above, there is a pub right next door and a number of takeaway menus in the lobby from places that deliver. There is also a small bar in the hotel. Breakfast was ok, a buffet with limited choice but hot and nicely presented.

All in all, great value for £59/night B&B, super staff add to this already impressive place, I would happily recommend and will definitely return.

Room Tip: All seem the same, quiet and comfortable

Stopped over for a night after visiting son in manchester heading to York.
On arrival girl behind reception ( Lorraine, I think) noticed my wife was using a crutch and without asking offered a ground floor room which I thought was excellent.
The room was clean and tidy and the breakfast on offer in morning was more than adequate.
Never really explored locale but right next door was a Toby carvery which we did go in and it was fine.
