“clean guest house, friendly helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have stayed in 5 star hotels with worse customer service. The guest house has true northern hospitality. The staff could not be more helpful. Very friendly and good for families. The rooms are scrupulously clean. Beds are comfortable. Breakfast is good.
10 mins from the motorway good access for m62
Overall i would highly recommended this guest house and would definitely stay again. Could not fault it.

Stayed for 1 night in June . Nice basic clean room with great bathroom. Good breakfast served by pleasant and helpful staff. Lots of parking, 10 minutes walk from cathedral. Would stay here again as its good value. Everything you need for a city break

Stayed in Wakefield for a wedding. There was no problem arranging to check in early to get ready. The room was nicely decorated, very clean and the bed was really comfortable. The guedt house has a bar (cash only)and parking to the rear. Breakfast was nicely presented by pleasant, helpful staff. Can't fault Stanley View.

Wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and although the website looks very good there are a few things to be aware of. B'fast is 7 to 8.30am which I think is a bit tight for a lot of people if you are travelling around on holiday.If you have a room over the kitchen/dining area then from 6 am you can hear the clatter of pots and pans and also the chatterings of the 2 ladies who serve the b'fasts..it was quite noisy and light sleepers would not be too happy.The parking area is actually on the lane at the back of the place,not on Stanley Rd which is a bus route and therefore no parking allowed.Their bar is just bottled beers,etc, nothing on tap.Wifi good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front or NOT over the kitchen/dining area.

We had booked into another hotel in town but it was absolutely filthy so we checked out and looked for somewhere else nearby. We found the Stanley View by chance and it was spotlessly clean and good value for money. It has clearly been decorated very recently with nice bathroom fittings and clean tidy breakfast room (plus very plush bathroom carpet!).
It's a B&B rather than a hotel so rooms not very large and my one complaint was that there was quite a bit of noise coming from people walking around in corridor outside (sound proofing not as good as modern hotels) but I'd stay there again if visiting friends nearby.

Stayed at Stanley View Guest House for one Night Saturday 2nd Feb 2013 after reading previous reviews and found the experience as noted by other reviews. A Clean Tidy well maintained property with warm friendly staff. Cannot fault the Breakfast which is perfectly cooked to order and you can get Muesli. Visit Wakefield to see relatives on a regular basis and wish I had found this Guest House earlier. Close to the new Trinity Walk Shopping centre and a ideal place to stay if you where unlucky enough to have anyone in Pinderfield Hospital for a long period of time. Enough park spaces at the rear of the building which is the best place to gain entrance to the building. Have booked already for our next stay.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 20 which is more for single occupancy as you do not have much room to move. But still...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

I've given them 4 stars when for me it was really a 2 or 3 star experience, because they are what they are and they do that very well. Hard working staff cook full english breakfasts but you probably can't ask for yoghurt or muesli! There are at least 25 rooms, very thin curtains let the light in (streetlights and then sun light), and I could feel the springs through my mattress, but it was cheap and clean and parking on the road behind was fine. But next time I might pay a bit more and find a place that makes me feel a bit better about my life of travel. (... I feel quite bad writing this review!)

Room Tip: Some road noise from front facing rooms
