“A alternative to accommodation in the centre of Leeds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This is a larger than expected B&B / Hotel. Right in the centre of Wakefield, close to all shops, restaurants & amenities. Parking is free for residents as is the excellent WiFi.
Breakfast was good with all you expect from a B&B.
The Italian restaurant that is part of the B&B is excellent with a very good price range.
All in all this is a great place to stay, with welcoming staff and good amenities. A definite re booking for me

Room Tip: If on business and you need a table to work on ask when booking in!

Excellent hotel, great service and nice stay. The reason for my stay was a 21st birthday in wakefield, but could be used for all occasions of family, friends, business, work, night out, suitable for many. Had all facilities needed with great WIFI, function rooms, lift, spacious rooms, excellent bathroom. Also great security needing your key to get into front door and personal room. The service throughout was personal, professional and with character and humour. Also an unbelievable breakfast in the morning !!!

Recently having my 21st birthday party at this venue, I found the management brilliantly flexible to my needs. You find yourself walking into an older but well looked after building with good character which is perfectly situated in Wakefield, close to both bus and train stations with free parking for guests. A taxi free night on the town is well worth it. Especially as well the drinks are very reasonably priced. Me and friends also booked into a four man room which was nicely furnished. It was simple, but very comfortable. The cost of the room, which includes an amazing breakfast when you're feeling a bit fragile was the best I've had for the price you pay and will definitely be returning on some form of occasion in the future.
My family also stayed in rooms across the hotel and reported good things. (I'm originally from London, hence the need to stay in a hotel for the family, and I wanted to treat myself to a night away from home with friends)
Highly recommend for functions and overnight stays. Amazing value.

The hotel was clean and comfortable and staff were friendly and helpful. We had a meal there on one night which was very good value and the food was also decent. I would say that overall this is a very good value 3 star hotel.

Stayed for one night, cost of £32.50 for a double room. Greeted straight away by the bar staff who checked us in, and gave us a pass for free parking - otherwise it's a pay and display car park. Restaurant / bar inside the hotel and info on the hotel inside the room. Room was pretty modern, large tv, clean and tidy and it had a large bed. Towels were provided, no shower soap but there was a electronic hand soap in the bathroom which looked like it had been recently decorated and a kettle in the room.

Thin walls, could hear next door talking. Black mildew in shower holder but shower worked fine. Plants in corridor needed a drink and some of the furnishings were a bit tired on the room floor corridors, but for the money and it's location (5-10 mins into Wakefield town centre to main shopping area), brilliant. Very close to the theatre, wasn't noisy at night at all. Overall I was very impressed. The breakfast was also included in the price - fry up, cereal or toast and jam. Waitress very friendly.

Quick checkout. Would recommend staying here. Would stay again myself if in the area again.
